THE RIVER Trent is well known for its bar­bel, but the carp sport it can of­fer is not to be sniffed at ei­ther.

Robert Bown proved that be­yond doubt when he landed this size­able 15lb 10oz bar­bel and cou­pled it with a carp weigh­ing 27lb 8oz.

Both cap­tures fish are per­sonal bests for the Not­ting­ham an­gler, who fished Re­demp­tion boilies pre­sented along­side a PVA bag filled with free of­fer­ings.

And that wasn’t all. Robert, who is spon­sored by 3 Foot Twitch Baits and used size 6 hooks to tame the two fish, caught an­other carp of 12lb 3oz and a sec­ond bar­bel at 13lb 6oz in the same pro­duc­tive ses­sion.
