Her partner Ashley Baker also chipped in with a PB 15 lb 1 oz barbel in a great Trent session at the bookable day and night venue.

Sheffield, South Yorkshire-based Ruby explained her successful Trent trip to Angler’s Mail.

“Me and my partner Ashley decided to go on a family trip to the Maltkiln Lane fishery where we love to go every season, and the kids love it too,” said Ruby.

“I am pleased to say we absolutely smashed it, having 18 fish in total, ten of them being barbel including our PBs plus others of 14 lb 14 oz, 14 lb 8 oz, 12 lb 10 oz and 11 lb 10 oz.

“Ashley also had three chub to 6 lb 3 oz and four bream to 7 lb 2 oz.

“We are absolutely buzzing and can’t wait to go back again next week.

“Thanks to Jo who owns the stretch for being so good to us and letting us take our camper van for the kids to sleep in. They loved it and even caught their first fish.

“It was a trip we will never forget,” concluded Ruby.
