Lovely. That would be considered a specimen on the stretch of the Cherwell I fish!

I gave up barbelling after I got fed up of the circus that now follows it around, I was spoilt for years because I virtually had my chosen river to my self for years,
I went last week , the first time for a long time , armed with a cane rod, a pin, size 8glt hooks, ssg shot, baitdropper and luncheon meat, I had to keep pulling baits away from good size chub so as not to spook the barbel behind them,

I was blessed with a couple of beauties , and more wonderful memories for the bleak winter days!
I love barbel,!

Glorious but looks more like a baby Pikbel...

Argh! Stop it Sir, I was trying to limit my barbel fishing as it was getting rather obsessive now I really need to go again :Tongue:

Cor what! Brilliant post from top to bottom. What lovely fish both big and small. Or rather enormous and small!

If that took one of your huge worms then it must have doubled it's weight instantly :Hahaha:

Hope it lives to become a monster.
