juftonDERBYSHIRE’S River Dove, a tributary of the mighty Trent, has produced 39 doubles this season for venue regular Jim Ufton with this 17 lb 3 oz barbel being his third over 17 lb.

The 54-year-old, from Burton-Upon-Trent, Staffordshire fished a home-made boilie on a size 10 Korum S4 hook for the big ‘un.

Jim said: ‘I really rate the S4 hook and don’t know why they are discontinued.‘

As a fan of Korum gear, Jim will be pleased to be a weekly Korum Specimen Cup winner here in Angler’s Mail, winning tackle goodies worth £100.
