THIRD 15lb BARBEL THIS YEAR

Angling Times (UK) - - NETBUSTERS -

Ian Potts’ lat­est barbel ad­ven­ture saw him take this chunky 15lb 1oz fish – his third over 15lb so far this sea­son.

The An­gling Dy­nam­ics-backed an­gler re­ceived a pow­er­ful bite just af­ter dark and fi­nally net­ted the spec­i­men af­ter a short fight.

His end tackle con­sisted of a 25lb GW Rig So­lu­tions Xposed un­coated braid hook­link, a size 8 Xbss barbel hook and an An­gling Dy­nam­ics test bait boilie.

TOP TIP: “When fish­ing weir pools for barbel with boilies, at­tach a stringer or a small PVA bag of around five or six of­fer­ings to your hook. You will get bites much quicker this way.”
