PREBAITING PAYS OFF FOR BEAUTIFUL TRIO OF AVON BARBEL

Simon Daley and his 16lb 3oz Avon barbel

by Angling Times |

TARGETING a new stretch of the Hampshire Avon gave Simon Daley a string of huge barbel to 16lb 3oz.

Prebaiting three swims with homemade boilies and fishing them in rotation, he netted his biggest-ever pair of barbel at 13lb 10oz and 15lb 13oz – with a 16lb 3oz giant on his next trip.

He said:

“I’ve now caught fifteens and sixteens from two separate stretches of the Avon. What a river it is!”
