Fourth Trent barbel over 15lb this year!
TO CATCH a 15lb barbel is a fine achievement, but Alfie Naylor is still coming to terms with banking his fourth specimen over this benchmark.
In just over two months he’s far surpassed his own expectations on his local River Trent, where his latest giant topped the scales at 15lb 1oz.
He used a light lead that he bounced beneath an overhanging tree on the far bank.
Instead of introducing any free offerings he put his faith in a single 10mm Red Ball Plumb boilie from 110% Baits.
