After-work trip results in Lea beast

(This catch was reported before the river close season came into force on March 15th 2022)

KEVIN O’Kane capitalised on ideal weather conditions to land this 18lb 11oz barbel from the River Lea.

Arriving for a short evening session, he fished a homemade milk protein boilie wrapped in paste, both having been made using John Baker ingredients.

Kevin had landed another barbel of 14lb 14oz a few days previously and was understandably delighted with his week’s work, as it’s the first time he’d targeted the Lea’s barbel for three years.
