Stunning 12lb barbel from Warwickshire Avon

Prebaiting a virtually unfished area on the upper-reaches of the Warwickshire Avon paid off for Chris Mutton with the capture of this stunning 12lb 14oz barbel.

The local rod fed a swim for two weeks before embarking on a short overnight session.

On arrival he baited a gully two rod lengths out tight to an overhanging bush with two bait droppers filled with pellets and broken Lone Angler Multi Grub Squabs.

He said: “No more than 20 minutes later the rod arched over and after a powerful I netted a cracking barbel.”
