Well this year saw me doing a bit of Barbel fishing on the River Wye. I really do love to be by the river and I enjoy this more simplistic way of fishing. Don’t get me wrong I love my 48hr Carp sessions with all that it entails but there is also something really nice about going fishing after work for a couple of hours; managing to get a bend in the rod in such wonderful surroundings is the icing on the cake.
Everything about my Barbel fishing is kept as simple as possible from rig and bait to the single bank stick and sitting on my un-hooking mat.
2016 is going to see me doing a lot more after work sessions and I will go into tactics, rigs and baits etc in lots more detail.
All the best,
