Two double-figure barbel in a row

A prebaiting campaign finally paid off for Adrian Eves when he landed a brace of barbel to 14lb 6oz from the River Kennet.

Having piled in several generous helpings of Dynamite Baits The Crave boilies leading up to the session, the Fox-backed angler was confident he could locate one of the venue’s elusive double figure specimens.

Using a single boilie wrapped in paste, his hunch paid off when an 11lb 13oz fish found the bait just before dark arrived.

But the action didn’t stop there, with the biggest of the duo falling to the same approach a few hours later.

His successful rig incorporated 15lb Fox Camotex stiff hooklength material and a size 8 S2 Kuro hook.
