MONSTER THAMES BARBEL ONE OF SEASON’S BIGGEST

Andrew Hodgson – 19lb 4oz barbel

by Angling Times |

A THREE-DAY prebaiting campaign on the River Thames has led to the capture of one of the biggest reported barbel of the year at 19lb 4oz.

The fine specimen fell to Andrew Hodgson, who primed his swim with Sticky Krill Active boilies on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before eventually hooking into something special at 2am on the Friday morning.

“The fight was absolutely incredible and as soon as I saw it I knew it would beat my old PB of 15lb 12oz,” he told us.
