Liam Bishell 6lb 13oz barbel

“I’ve been fishing the same spot on my local River Dearne for the last three seasons and over the last 11 sessions I’ve blanked…

“Me and a mate decided on a three-hour evening trip on this occasion and were just about to leave when my rod screamed off with this giant barbel.

“It tried its hardest to drag me towards a snag but after a mighty 20 minute battle she was safely in the net.

“I was absolutely buzzing with this fish as all the effort and the hours I had put in had finally paid off.

“I also believe it to be a new record for the River Dearne!”
