New bait wastes no time bagging 14lb 11oz barbel

Professional bait maker Richard Easom used one of his latest creations to tempt this 14lb 11oz specimen from the River Trent.

The Three Foot Twitch boss visited a stretch of water that he had landed numerous doubles from in recent weeks and presented a new product that is yet to hit the market on a simple leger rig.

It did the trick almost straight away, with his biggest of the season so far making several efforts to slip the hook before it surrendered.

“I took this fish at a personal best of 15lb 15oz in March and although it is down in weight it was still great to land such a fantastic looking barbel,” said Richard.
