It's been brewing for a while - the storm finally arrived! Two London hospitals flooded, sections of the underground became rivers and my garden had that much needed drink...
But did it wake the monster barbel from their summer slumber? Those big barbel that have eluded me so far this season - surely the fresh water would spark them into a feeding frenzy!?! Nope!
But I'm very lucky to have barbel within walking distance (still walking to the river) - and I don't care about size - 91 barbel landed so far this season! I've got Autumn & Winter to search for a double.
|James is having better luck chasing the doubles, although on a different river, adding another one to his 40 Rivers Challenge - seven down, 33 to go - full story on his blog here.|
