Feeding?


I couldn't resist a few hours on the riverbank this afternoon to see if the barbel were feeding, long story short... No!

I did tempt this beautiful little common carp, 3lb 12oz, and the only other fish to grace the net was a chub that really looked like he wanted to go 4lb+ but he was a very hollow 3lb 15oz.

I'll be back...

    Barbel, carp, pike, trout,... Whenever we see a photograph of Brian, he always has a (large) fish in his hands. Well done. Now the season can start!

    1. Really dark bronze fish, beautiful... Wish it was 10lb bigger but not complaining.

      Good luck tonight, might give it a whirl myself!

    1. Thanks. I love river carp, the still water ones don't hold great appeal. My PB is 14lb but a river twenty is on my target list.
