Just a few weeks after all catching personal best chub from the River Trent, father and sons trio David, Luke and Ryan masters all returned to the Midlands waterway to repeat the feat….this time with barbel!
Targeting the sale stretch as their previous success, Dad David weighed in with a 11lb 6oz fish, before his son Luke landed a superb 13lb 2oz barbel. Not to be outdone, number two son Ryan, who also caught the largest chub on their latest outing, then slipped his net under a fine new personal best of 13lb 8oz. All three barbel were caught using hair-rigged pellets.
