Spanish big fish specialist David Aldana has contacted us to let us know that he’s set a new Guadalquivir Reservoir record for the Andaluz barbel (luciobarbus sclateri) at 10.2kg (22lb 7oz).

David used a 20mm Robin Red boilie on a size 6 VMC at the venue in Southern Spain to deter any smaller fish. This is his 11th barbel over 10kg!!!

He’s no stranger to big fish, and has landed Comizo barbel in Spain to 37lb – see
