Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

SIX friends en­joyed a bar­bel fish­ing trip to re­mem­ber last week, land­ing an as­ton­ish­ing 39 dou­ble-fig­ure fish topped by a 14lb 1oz spec­i­men.

The amaz­ing haul was made by pals Gary Whe­lan, John Mott, Shaun Swift, Glen Drum­mond, Phil Mars­den and Dean Ste­wart dur­ing a two-day visit to the renowned Colling­ham stretch of the River Trent.

The lads, who are backed by GW Rig So­lu­tions, used 5oz-6oz leads or swim­feed­ers, 2ft-long braided hook­lengths and Dave Mallin pun­gent squid boilies on the hook.

They also banked nu­mer­ous fish un­der 10lb dur­ing the ac­tion-packed ses­sion, but it was John who bagged the big­gest of the en­tire trip on the sec­ond day.

Two of the big Trent bar­bel the team landed.
