ADRIAN EVES’ FIVE TIPS FOR BAR­BEL SUC­CESS

Angling Times (UK) - - NEWS -

1 Re­search the wa­ter you’re want­ing to fish. Lo­cal knowl­edge is para­mount, and many tackle shop own­ers or lo­cals will put you on the fish.

2 Fish where you wouldn’t nor­mally fish. In flooded wa­ter the bar­bel will be in an area where they wouldn’t have been in low wa­ter.

3 Fish less pres­sured waters. Bar­bel will of­ten shy away from an area re­ceiv­ing lots of feed, ac­tiv­ity and at­ten­tion.

4 Pre­bait se­lec­tively – if you’re feed­ing a swim with lots of bait, feed more. If there are only a few fish in your swim, feed less.

5 Don’t give up if you blank. Keep ring­ing the changes and fine-tune your rigs. The re­sults will come!
