Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

ANT Molyneux’s de­but ses­sion on the River Trent re­sulted in this 14lb 4oz bar­bel.

The Avid Carp-backed an­gler in­tro­duced a bed of Code Red boilies on ar­rival, but that tac­tic failed to gain a re­sponse in the first 24 hours.

Ul­ti­mately, though, his pa­tience was re­warded and his alarms screamed into life when the bar­bel took his glugged boilie hook­bait, and af­ter a dogged bat­tle the fish was in the net.

“I in­stantly knew I’d beaten my pre­vi­ous best of 12lb 14oz and I am al­ready plan­ning my next trip to the Trent,” ex­plained Ant.

His win­ning rig in­cor­po­rated a 3oz K-Grip lead and a 12lb Ko­rum Bar­bel Line hook­link to a size 10 Xpert Power hook.

Ant’s first-ever Trent bar­bel went 14lb 4oz.
