30/10 Trent

Too much flow/ isotopes not bright enough to float fish. 2 legered deadbaits out, 1 quick bite and one proper one resulting in this zander of 8lb 9oz. Got cold and left earlier than planned...

Barbel fishing again, quiet as it always seems to be on this stretch. One fish of about 9lb. Im sure theres some very big ones here, might take a while to get one though...

23/10 Trent

New tactic to reduce missed runs...worked straight away with this pike of 15lb 1oz

The real reson for the new tactic (floatfishing with isotope float) was zander, the other rod had my old rig on and landed the only other take of the evening...not quite back to the drawing board but maybe my old tactics werent that bad after all

20/10 River Severn

10 of us met up for the annual Barbel Adventures forum 'Barbel Cup', semi competitive social/ barbel fishing match. These events have never been prolific, due in part to usually being in the middle of winter. This year on the Severn in October we thought there might be a better chance of a few fish. We did get a couple but that was all, both coming very early on. Was still a good day out, heres Leyton with the winning fish

09/10 Trent

Fished for barbel on one and deadbait on the other. Frustrating on the deadbait rod with missed runs, fish lost due to user error - striking with baitrunner on - and lost hooked fish that came off. One barbel, just after 9pm if I remember correctly and just under 12lb...11lb 15oz I think

Late update of blog...cant remember too much about this eveing other than the fact I caught 1 barbel. Weighed either 10lb 0 or 10lb 1oz. Must get back into the habit of posting quicker...
