Bar­bel blink­ers off!

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

THIS sea­son I’ve re­ally been into my bar­bel fish­ing and the Trent has been my cho­sen lo­ca­tion. I’ve been quite suc­cess­ful with fish to 13lb but af­ter a while I be­came a lit­tle bored I’m sorry to say.

As a for­mer match an­gler, I de­cided that in­stead of chuck­ing a large feeder out for a ‘whiskers’, I’d spend a day on the stick float.

On a still and mild day last week af­ter Storm Brian had calmed down I had a great day with 15lb of roach and chub from the river at Bur­ton Joyce. My mes­sage? Take the bar­bel blink­ers off – the Trent has much more to of­fer! Jeff Cook, Not­ting­ham
