Barbel Tales, from the Barbel Society

Barbel Tales

The Barbel Society is proud to announce the forthcoming publication of a milestone publication, probably the most definitive book on barbel and barbel fishing ever produced. The book is a celebration of barbel fishing to date, and of the impact and successes of the Barbel Society in the last fifteen years.

The book is a rich blend of the best of articles published in the renowned Barbel Fisher magazine, and of guest chapters written by a long list of barbel anglers, both those with long-established reputations and with contributions from a host of modern writers.

There will be over 300 pages of barbel fishing stories, advice on baits, rigs and tactics, and this detailed work will include a mine of information on a range of barbel fisheries and rivers.

Books are available to preorder on the Barbel Society website, and there will be a total of 50 leathers and 1000 hardbacks.

Leathers £180 inc p&p
Hardbacks £35 inc p&p

First 500 hardbacks are numbered and reserved for members only.

Members may purchase both leather and hardback at a reduced rate of £200 inc pandp

The book will be published in June 2013 and launched at the Barbel Show on 9th June.
