Escapee


More small barbel (total now 75) but I did land one about 7lb - which escaped while resting in the net - at least it wasn't a double!

Talking of doubles; James has added another double to his 40 Rivers, 40 Doubles quest - check out his new-look blog here.

    1. Yeah, that quest may take a while!

      Not a bad month - but I don’t think I’ll be able to keep my 10+ barbel per trip average up much longer...

    1. Very healthy river - let’s hope it stays that way.

      Good work on The Wye - might have to head over and see if I can find a perch - haven’t set eyes on The Wye in over a year!!

  3. Typical, out of 75 Barbel its the biggest so far that decides to slip out! but am I partly to blame :(

    And cheers for the plug! it's going to be a long haul pursuit, but, with a little luck along the way who knows, I might just achieve it!!!
