Paul Allen 15lb 5oz Barbel

Paul Allen has been putting the hours in on the Hampshire Avon and in early September, was rewarded with a new pb barbel weighing in at 15lb 5oz.

“With the rivers on the rise, conditions were perfect so I headed back and fished a slack area just off the main flow with a boilie wrapped in paste and a pva bag of crushed boilies as freebies about a rod length out. Well just after dark my rod wrapped round and after a short battle I had a new pb barbel in the net in the shape of this lovely 16lb 4oz specimen.” He added.
