Into The Drizzle

Not enough time to get to the pike ponds and horrible drizzly weather - so I thought I’d give the barbel another bash for an hour or two...

And three barbel found the net before the water got too dirty to spot them and I retreated out of the rain - worth getting wet for...

With the 100 Barbel Challenge cracked a couple of months ago can I crack the 800 overall total this season? 29 barbel to go...

For the records: 8lb 10oz, 8lb 0oz & 5lb (135)


  1. I think it's about time you found a new fish picture pose. Looking back over your last few blogs your images are very similar...... or is it one and a spot of photoshopping?

    Good catch for a November day ;o)

    1. I think you’re right - or better still a new species - perhaps even a pike, I’m starting to forget what they look like!

      Or failing that hold one up facing right - but that might be a bit to radical for me!!
