Tunnel Barn Farm record shattered

Tunnel Barn Farm regular Paul Newell put his favoured bread approach to good use during the latest event at the Warwickshire complex to smash the New Pool record with 244lb 1oz.

While most of his rivals used pellet, maggot or corn, the Smithy’s Tackle man used breadflake over a sloppy feed to attract F1s, carp and bream at regular intervals from peg 18.

Arm aching action was also experienced by the rest of the frame with runner up Ronnie Biggs taking 159lb 11oz and third placed Shaun Little placed 138lb 9oz on the scales.
