Default 3 16lbers in one sitting.

Had an amazing short 2hr session after work this evening.Arrived at the river to find it just within its banks.Found a nice slack area and dropped a lump of meat in it.Ten minutes later,wollop,fish on.It went 16lb on the scales.Very happy bunny.There was still some daylight left so had another go in the same swim.Half an hour later,wollop.Another one in the net.This one went 16lb 8oz.Thought i was dreaming.And get this it happened again.Another 16lb 8oz barbel.
Has this happened to anyone else.And is there some kind of record this.
Thanks.A very happy Angler.

On the Nene? or further afield?

Meant to say, heartiest congratulations.

This must be an all time record for a trio of specimens of any species not just barbel.

This may be a first Nigel: an incredible session. It's the stuff of dreams (for everyone else!) and I hope you have some photographs for us to salivate over. Well done!

truly amazing catch for you and the river, i believe its worthy of the drennen cup as to catch 3 16lb`ers from the same swim on that river is surly a once in a lifetime catch, get the photos in to angling times mate a weekly winner is 80 but i honestly believe you can win the 2,000 first prize and cup at the end of the season, 2,000 !!!!!!!!!!.
