The prolific Collingham stretch of the River Trent produced this personal best barbel weighing 12lb 8oz for Leeds anglers Tim Gath. Tim set up a running rig using 12lb Soft Steel line to a Camo Skin braided hook link and fooled the fish on a hair rigged 21mm halibut pellet on a size 10 hook. Tim wins a pin-on Specimen Barbel badge with Total Coarse Fishing magazine.
