OUR brilliant magazine this week has specialist Mark Fox on the cover with a 9 lb 1 oz barbel – and here we bring you some bonus “behind the scenes” photos.
You can see here how he did it, on the River Nene above Thrapston.
First Mark used a large baitdropper to feed the swim with a combination of hemp, pellets and some broken boilies.
The Northamptonshire angler then legered a new Frank Warwick Baits boilie over top of the particles using a PVA bag of pellets.
Mark didn’t just have the fit-looking fish on the Angler’s Mail front cover (issue cover-dated July 17)…he also caught seven more barbel. Good angling, we reckon!
