Got The Time?


I needed 54lb of barbel to hit the new 500lb target, but I'm really running out of time. I worked it out; if I could fit four more sessions in I'd need about 14lb a trip...

So on Saturday afternoon I had a couple of hours on the river searching for my fourteen pounds. And I really struggled to spot any fish at all, the water was low and clear and looked entirely devoid of life. They can't have got out, where were they?

After much searching I did spot a couple of barbel, 3½lb and 4lb in consecutive casts. And later added a chub about 3lb which spooked his shoal mates. Seven and a half pounds added, well below the target - still 47lb to go...
