Saturdays catch

The 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.

Well done "B" good second fish. Haven't managed a double.

Pleased for you beeman   Will be a good couple of years before our Illegaly stocked Barbel get to double figures. Just need to be patient
