My names Nigel I'm a regular on a large stretch of the wye for the last 2 years. I use to be a huge carp fan til I caught my first barbel at 9lb 2oz. Now I'm hooked on getting the large double. Can't wait til the water drops a bit to get back on the river but at the moment the wye is pretty hard to fish

Hi Fella's,

My name is Chris, I've been doing a fair bit of Barbel fishing over the last few seasons (when time allows!).

I fish mainly the Wye around Ross-on-Wye and the Severn around the Tewkesbury area. I've caught fish to just in to low doubles, and am keen to make a greater effort to up that this season.

My favourite method of fishing is free lining.... as you can probably imagine these flood conditions have put a stop to all that!

Tight lines everyone

hi guys, my name is rob or bob i dont mind i have fished since i was about seven years old ,i caught my first barbel when i was 11 years old from the thames at leyhlam near chertsey and i have been hooked ever since and i will be seventy next march, i have varied fishing interests including sportfishing for bass which i find all consuming i also fish a lott for carp etc.i fish for my barbel with the stick float as i find sitting behind a feeder rod not my cup off tea (totaly different to sitting behind carp rods ),as when i am by the river i feel as i should be doing more than just sitting there.i have recently fished the warwickshire avon and i had a few from about seven and a half to about 11 pounds which was great as i havent been to a river for about four years due to mobility prob,s but i will be going back for more thats for sure..

regards rob.and tight lines to all.

a famouse golfer once said the more i practice the luckier i get.

Hi Everyone,

The name's chris and I am totally new to barbel fishing this season. Mostly been a sea fisherman for donkeys years but moving to Shropshire its quite a long way to the sea! So thought that I would give the Severn a go.

First few weeks were hard going and all I had were chub to 4lb. Then I started having sucess but only when the river was in part flood or the water was coloured. Recently have had over 200lb of Barbel (ususally 4-8 fish per session) up to 8 and a half pounds.


Just purchased a TFG banshee barbel and Force 8GT 5000 freespool as a second combo - other is a Wychwood tri-tip Barbel and Fox 7000E. Can't wait to get out this weekend and give the new rod and reel a christening!

Found sonubaits hemp and spicy sausage pellets been really successful - combine sometimes with lobs.

Tight lines everyone,

Chris

Hi all you barbel fanatics!
First time i've posted on this forum so I'll introduce myself. Names Jack (as you could probably have guessed) and I've been a big barbel fan for a few years now. Living in Cumbria makes barbel fishing pretty hard work as the nearest river is the Ribble (an hour and a half's drive away!), but on it's day can be good fishing, good for big chub too!
Only other river I've fished for barble is the trent, but we're having a week fishing the Severn in a few weeks time. Can't wait as it's a river I've always wanted to fish, any of you guys know of any good areas around bridgenorth/bewdley I'm all ears!
PB so far is 12 lb 4 but I'm hoping to crack that this Autum/Winter.

Cheers for reading
Jack
