Long trip to the River Trent ends in 12lb barbel

A 200-mile round trip proved more than worthwhile for Darren Hurst as he banked this personal best 12lb 2oz barbel from the River Trent.

The Bolton-based angler made the long journey to a stretch of the middle reaches and presented a 14mm Three Foot Twitch Dubby boilie in the fast current.

The fish capped off a memorable session during which Darren also landed another six fish to just over double figures.
