Sheffield based Steve Aldam rolled meat down the trent to bank the beast. The method, that involves trundling a bit of meat along the riverbed was a solid tactic many years ago but has fallen behind the pecking order in many anglers tactics these days. In the same morning’s fishing, the retired company director landed a further eight barbel for a total weight of 98lb. But big barbel catches are nothing surprising for Steve, who’s had a fantastic season so far, already landing a staggering 151 barbel.
Well done Steve!
