Saturdays catchThe tempeature was up slightly after no frost on friday night so I had a go on the tidal trent for barbel. I have been looking around some new stretches and found one that I really fancied.
After an hour or so I had the first knock, this prooved to be a 6lb 12oz Barbel, a good start I thought. Then I had to wait another 3 hours, and was begining to think that was it for the day when my rod tip slammed round to the right, and i was in again. This fish felt better and put up a long determined fight, before coming to the net.What a cracker! all 12lb 14oz of it.
What a belting days fishing, I,m still somewhere over the moon.
