Rolling meat scores for Derwent double

Professional fishing coach, Patrick Oliver, put his watercraft skills to good use to fool this 13lb 10oz personal best barbel during an outing on the River Derwent.

The Three Rivers Angling Adventures chief has become an advocate of rolling meat tactics in recent years and relied on the simple, yet effective, approach to tempt the specimen from the Derbyshire waterway.

His pupil for the day – John Docherty – also put a bend in the rod when an 11lb 3oz barbel fell for the same method.
