Bar­bel bag­ging!

Angling Times (UK) - - FISH OF THE YEAR SPECIAL -

I can’t be­lieve how many big bar­bel there are in the Trent now. Over the past few sea­sons I’ve had some mem­o­rable plea­sure fish­ing days at places like East Stoke and Fisker­ton on the Not­ting­ham Pis­ca­to­ri­als wa­ter. No mat­ter what I’m fish­ing for, I al­ways seem to end up catch­ing bar­bel!

A day back in July saw me fish­ing for roach with my mate Kelvin Tal­lett, and it wasn’t long be­fore we had to change kit to­tally from light sil­ver fish gear to ex­tra-strong float gear once the bar­bel moved in!

It was one of the most ex­cit­ing days in ages, and ev­ery fish tested our

Tour­na­ment RS Power rods to the limit!

A very fit Trent bar­bel – they kept on com­ing!
