WHERE’S THE NEXT RECORD COMING FROM?
What about the Great Ouse and Wensum?
THE OUSE and Wensum have, to date, produced the two biggest barbel ever landed in the UK, at 21lb 1oz and 20lb 12oz respectively. However, those individual fish (The Traveller and The Beast), and many others of the same year classes, were predated by otters. A similar fate has befallen many of the other ‘river records’ listed above.
