 BARBEL SOCIETY  2010 Research and Conservation Auction



The annual auction to raise funds ended yesterday and once again it was a resounding success.

With fifty four items on offer realising bids from £15 up to £270 there really was something for everyone.

Fishing days with well known barbel anglers, items of tackle, books, pictures, club tickets, all were on offer and the Barbel Society members really entered into the spirit and each lot reached its reserve price.

Taking into account the current financial climate which has impacted on us all the total of £4444 which was achieved is simply amazing.

This means that once again the Barbel Society is able to add to its significant reserve which will be used to help fund more conservation projects across the country.

Working alongside the Environment Agency, Natural England, The River Trusts and local Angling Clubs, the Barbel Society is able to contribute to all manner of projects which help to maintain and protect our riverine environment.

We are only able to do this because of the support and loyalty of our membership, the Angling Trade and the individuals who support our conservation efforts.

Each and every member of the Barbel Society can feel proud to be involved with the conservation initiatives the Society undertakes, without the loyal support we maintain year on year we simply would not be in a position to do this.

So a massive thank you from me on behalf of the Barbel Society management team.

If you want to be part of this organisation which is at the forefront of barbel related matters then join up now, it has never been easier, just go to the website and pay on line HERE.

The Barbel Society has a fantastic future to look forward to, those charged with managing the Society are committed to ensure that the Barbel Society continues to maintain its prominent position in the Angling world.

We are the friendliest bunch of barbel fishers you could ever wish to meet and along with the  Research and Conservation projects there are more exciting initiatives on the way for next season.

Steve Pope,  Chairman
