Brothers Paul and Jamie Taylor – who we featured in July with fish of 16 lb 2 oz and 14 lb 8 oz respectively – have been back in action and this time pal Matthew Small also chipped in with a stunner.
Car mechanic Paul topped the catches again with a 17 lb sample that is a near river record and also had a 12 lb 3 oz sample at the same time Mathew had a 15 lb 6 oz lump.
Jamie’s also chipped in with a brace of 11 lb 2 oz and 6 lb 1 oz from the venue that has a 17 lb 2 oz overall best set in 2007 by Paul Stratford.
Paul, 24, from nearby Cardiff explained: ‘All these fish were caught using a small PVA tubing filled with 2 mm halibut pellets and hook bait was double 10 mm halibut pellets.
