One take on River Trent is 15lb 10oz barbel

Adam Seeley only received one take during an evening session on the River Trent – but he wasn’t complaining as it resulted in this 15lb 10oz barbel.

Targeting a Worksop Angling Association controlled stretch of the Nottinghamshire waterway, the venue regular tempted his new personal best with two hair-rigged 8mm pellets fished alongside a PVA bag filled with pellets, hemp and caster.

He said: “I’ve lost some real monsters on this stretch and I believe I’m only starting to scratch the surface on this truly unknown part of the river.”
