Avon PB landed

A 12mm halibut pellet was too much to for this 16lb 8oz barbel to pass up.

The fish was caught by Gary Moth from a stretch of the Hampshire Avon, and is his new personal best for the species.

Following the capture, the vehicle technician from Southampton revealed: “I’ve been after a very big barbel for a long time and it’s finally happened. 

“To be honest, I can’t wipe the smile off my face.”
