Mod­ern meth­ods

Anglers Mail - - Front Page -

The big­gest changes in barbel fish­ing over the years have been the tremen­dous ad­vances in terms of tackle and bait, and yet the tried and tested meth­ods of the past still have their place.

There are now won­der­fully strong, in­cred­i­bly sharp, lit­tle hooks avail­able, turn­ing lit­tle knocks and pulls into full-blooded bites, with barbel hook­ing them­selves as never be­fore.

Hook link ma­te­ri­als have pro­gressed re­mark­ably, and the cross­over of rigs from carp fish­ing must now put many more fish on the bank. The current range and qual­ity of barbel baits means that you can stay ahead of both the barbel and other an­glers, as fish be­come sus­pi­cious of stan­dard fare. Ex­per­i­ment­ing with baits also adds an­other di­men­sion of in­ter­est to your fish­ing, be it with a se­cret, new recipe, or try­ing stan­dard baits such as corn that have fallen out of fash­ion!
