TONY GIB­SON: UK’s First 20lb Bar­bel

Angling Times (UK) - - 50 GREATEST CATCHES -

21

AL­THOUGH it was hardly a sur­prise at the time, Tony Gib­son’s 20lb 6oz bar­bel from the Great Ouse in Oc­to­ber 2004 was a land­mark nev­er­the­less.

The fish was caught from the Adam’s Mill stretch of the Great Ouse near Bed­ford, and beat the old best for the species by more than 1lb.

Al­though the mark set by Tony was beaten a year later, he went down in his­tory as the first man to crack 20lb.
