Sev­ern cracker on spicy sausage

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

THE River Sev­ern at Hamp­ton Loade has long been a pro­lific bar­bel venue and Char­lie Watkins un­der­lined the stretch’s rep­u­ta­tion with the cap­ture of this su­perb 8lb 5oz ex­am­ple of the species.

The teenager leg­ered a spicy sausage pel­let into the main flow and didn’t have to wait long be­fore his new per­sonal best was hooked.

After a nervy bat­tle dur­ing which the fish made sev­eral dart­ing runs, the bar­bel even­tu­ally gave in and was guided into the net. Con­grat­u­la­tions Char­lie!
