    Yes, we were about due another 20lb Trent barbel, it must be nearly twelve months since the last one.

    There will be a 10lb Wye chub along quite soon as well

    Yes - I heard that - and I think it was me who announced it on here then as well.

    Nevertheless if you look on the A1 pits site you will see I am not making it up!!

    This wouldn't be said fish, would it: News

    Because going on the fact that the writer of this article mis-spelt barbel, "barbell".
    It'd be a fair assumption that the writer mis-typed the weight, 22lb should more likely been 12lb.

    Easy mistake, one and two digits being in such close proximity to each other and holding the lllll kkkkeyyy down toooooooooo longgg...

    It was me! I caught it but I chucked the b*gger up the bank cos everyone knows barbel are only native in England's western rivers....

    (original Magicalia FM article... where's the photos gone!)

    Ron will be along in a minute...... he was telling me (at Boundary Park) about the staggering number of 20lb+ Trent barbel (but that was some time after the beer, wine, vodka, malt, etc etc started to flow). No publicity allowed apparently!

    Dicky don't say anything about that 11lb chub we caught on the Wye the other day, if word gets out, we'll never be able to get a peg again.
