Twenty-year-old university student Olly Rogers smashed his old best of 13 lb 3 oz by catching the specimen from a Peterborough & District AA stretch in Cambridgeshire.
Olly explained: “This season I have managed countless doubles, but the special ones had been avoiding me.
- Find your way during nighttime fishing with the best headlamps
- Keep pests away while angling with the best insect repellents
- 'Not fishing tactic' brings river rewards
“The fight from this fish left me shaking like a leaf. At first I thought it was a river carp, but after turning my head-torch on and looking into the bottom of my net, I knew it was a new PB barbel.
“You can’t fish like everyone else and expect better-than-average results. This season I have made it my aim to fish areas that see little angling pressure, doing my own thing.
“It fell to a single 14 mm 3 Foot Twitch boilie with a few freebies placed upstream,” added Peterborough-based Olly.
