Member and venue regular, Jonah Cooper, sent us details of a superb River Derwent barbel he caught recently, close to Belper.
Jonah regularly send us details & photos of his catches using our online catch report form. He kindly grants his permission for us to publish them on the site.
Here’s what Jonah had to say about the capture:
“[The barbel] took a piece of Luncheon Meat just before 9:45pm. I’d been fishing from about 4-ish and I was going to pack up for home in about 5 minutes before it took a huge run downstream. Cracking fish, returned safely.”
Well done Jonah! That looks a superb barbel; please keep the catch reports coming.
