Dou­ble No4 for club of­fi­cial

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

YOU don’t need to fish on ex­pen­sive syn­di­cates to catch mon­ster bar­bel, as Peter­bor­ough & District Angling As­so­ci­a­tion sec­re­tary John New­man showed when he slipped the net un­der this 15lb 4oz spec­i­men.

John bagged the prized fish from his own club’s day-ticket stretch of the River Nene near his home, where he tempted it on a small piece of Spam fished on a size 10 Gard­ner Tar­get Spec­i­men bar­b­less hook.

It was the best of four dou­bles landed by the 59-year-old from Nene over the past month, along with chub to over 6lb.
