18.07 from St.Pats is mine
Not a competition Paul, we all fish for enjoyment and our own satisfaction. 10-12 is a big fish from any river, I agree that it’s bigger from some rivers than others but you can wear the badge with pride
A 10 out the swale is like hens teeth. I never achieved it and I practically lived there at one point searching.Hi Paul,
Based on what I've read and heard about the Swale, not least the fact its arguably the most northerly barbel river in the country, or indeed Europe, I would say 10.12 is a frekin monster!!! I'd rate it a better fish than my Trent 14.10 any day of the week.
You can't catch fish that ain't there.
