SUPER TRENT BARBEL AND CARP DOUBLE
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.
