I was pretty convinced when I caught it, very silver and white pelvic and anal fins... Looking at the photo I'm not so sure now. Doesn't matter, a cracking morning's fishing.
Three barbel, 5lb 3oz recapture (above), 3lb 14oz and one about 2lb, two chub (both over 3lb), a trout and an eel... I'll take that any day!
Taking my season total barbel up to 21 for 94lb 15oz, I'd really like to beat the 100lb mark this year - five pounds to go. I nearly cracked it today loosing a fish about 7lb and one about 4lb, I'm thinking hook-pulls are more of a problem rolling than fishing static baits.
And hello to Stewart from Barbel Quest, nice to finally meet you and put a face to the name after 2 or 3 years - good luck tomorrow.
