TRENT BARBEL HAUL
His first trip to the River Trent in more than 10 years proved to be a successful one for Steve Pope when he put together a haul of double-figure barbel. The Dynamite Baits-sponsored angling guide and chairman of the Barbel Society bagged five double-figure fish to this 15lb best on a two-day trip to the renowned Collingham stretch of the waterway in Nottinghamshire. Steve tempted all his fish using a double 18mm Crave boilie hookbait fished in conjunction with PVA bags of loose boilies.
TOP TIP: “Try using PVA bags instead of heavy feeders in order not to spook the fish.”
