Well done to Richard Thomas who caught this well known big Sydney Avenue Barbel. Richard weighed the fish at 13lb 10oz. Recognizable by the dark vertical bar down center of the right flank and missing section of the top ray of the top tail fin lobe, this fish has graced the net of many lucky anglers over the last few years. Its weight is the subject of much debate and has been claimed at widely different values. This is one of the largest known Barbel on Sydney avenue if not across the entire SAF portfolio of river sections.
