“BEAUTIFUL COLNE BARBEL GAVE ME THE FIGHT OF MY LIFE” – ARTHUR SINES

Arthur Sines – 13lb 1oz barbel

by Angling Times |

“The tiny River Colne was not long ago believed to have been devastated by otters, but on a recent session I had a fish that I will remember for a long time.

“It’s a narrow, shallow and clear waterway, making the fishing challenging – however, this stunning barbel of 13lb 1oz took the bait just 30 minutes into the session.

“The quivertip slammed right round and I was into the specimen that gave me the fight of my life. It’s not a PB, but it’s a lovely fish from such a small river.

“A single halibut pellet was the winning hookbait.”
