To Chris Yates, I dedicate this barbel best…

Adam Fisher dedicated the capture of his new barbel personal best to the legendary Chris Yates when he banked this 12lb 7oz specimen.
Thousands of anglers have been inspired by Chris’s exploits, so you can imagine the honour it was for Adam to have Chris and two of his friends visit a stretch of the river called Seven Sisters, which is controlled by Adam’s company, Angling Dreams.
Inspired by meeting Chris for the first time, he returned to the venue the next day armed with a simple leger rig and a hair-rigged pellet.
“Twenty-five years ago I used to fish Seven Sisters as a schoolboy after reading Casting At The Sun and watching A Passion for Angling and my love for fishing was cemented by Chris.” Adam said. “I felt a real calling to get out fishing the next day after meeting the great man for the first time and within 30 minutes I’d landed a new personal best. It was incredible and I can’t help but think that the fishing gods had something to do with it.”
