ONE of the most impressive barbel hauls ever has seen Nigel Bryans notch up three fish over 16 lb in one short sitting.

Nigel, 49, from Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, bagged the meaty trio at 16 lb and two swinging the scales to 16 lb 8 oz. He is not disclosing the river name.

The country park assistant, said: ‘I had a hunch that the river would peak after some heavy rain the night before. So thought I would give it a go for a couple of hours after work.’
