Should have tried those cherries for the chub. They're supposed to be a good bait but one I've never used.
Didn't think of that, I'm sure they would have taken them - my mate Steve had some on some weird and wonderful baits (I'm sworn to secrecy at the moment).
Sweet! glad your brother got one of those Wye torpedoes.
Least I could do after the last shark fishing trip :-)
Brian next time you come down I have found out about some free fishing on the Wye (very short stretch) it gets fished but not every night. Barbel to 16lb my mate said he had a 14lb. I will give it a go in the next few weeks.
Nice, they are some very big Wye barbs, I think the official river record is still 15lb 4oz. Keep me posted - cheers.
