George Cornwell 15lb 7oz Barbel

Not long ago, barbel fanatic George Cornwell banked a new barbel PB at 15lb 7oz from the Hampshire Avon. Well, he’s gone and smashed that fish out the park with this 17lb 2oz beauty.
It was caught from the same venue and fell to a paste-wrapped boilie fished alongside a small PVA bag of freebies. The fish gave a tentative bite but gave a fight like nothing George had ever known, going on and on. Understandably, he was relieved when the fish finally went into the net!

Well done George!
