The last two weeks of the season - and a misty start gave way to a sunny afternoon - time to stock up on that barbel pull before three months without! And eight barbel found the net - brilliant!!
It's left me with a bit of a dilemma; I was going to spend the last few sessions tracking down a fat Spring dace - but 237 barbel is really close to 250 barbel - and it has been kind of a barbely season...
I'd go for the dace personally, but then Barbel are addictive especially when you have them in decent numbers down where you are....Any plans for the closed season ?ReplyDelete
Those dace are tempting, but difficult to extract from the hordes of hungry trout - one last go!Delete
No plans for the closed season - the only ‘local’ water that is open is a carp pond, but it’s very busy, every peg occupied - and like you I try to avoid the crowds. Might do a bit of fly fishing - bet those trout won’t be so easy then!
