TEENAGER Alfie Russell has bagged a brace beyond most adult’s wildest dreams – a stunning barbel scaling 16 lb 15 oz and a 7 lb 2 oz chub.

All came on an overlooked bait (certainly for barbel!) and the mega beard is his first of the species!

The Camden, North London schoolboy’s full story and photographs are in this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine.

    That’s mega, and a 7lb chub must’ve been nearly as good! Well done mate – and I didn’t even know mega specimens like that lived in Hertfordshire!
