|New PB Barbel from Fishers Green|
Darren Tapsfield banked a new P.B Barbel recently on only his fourth visit to the Fishers Green venue on the river Lee, near Waltham Abbey.
Darren tempted this super 12lb 4oz fish on a short three hour session at 11.20am on a fishmeal paste, fished to some overhanging trees.
It beats his previous best barbel of 9lb 1oz by over 3lb.
Charlies Mate at 39lb
Iain also went on to bag a silver common of 27lb, which he caught nearly exactly the same day, this time last year!
Both fish came from the back of a bar at 40 yard’s range over a spodded area of Tail’s Up Protavit Liver Pellets and broken Liver boilies and hemp to a hinged stiff link, 3oz pear leads, 15lb line on 4500 Emblem’s and 3lb test curve Harrison rods.
The week before this double capture he also had a 31lb 8oz common, which fell to the same tactics.
