Catch more barbel!


Hi Everyone,

I’m now taking bookings for next season.

My diary is starting to fill already and as I only guide for four months the dates are being taken up quite quickly!

Unfortunately I have stopped using the River Kennet , if you have read the article I recently put on here you will understand why. Basically there are so few barbel on my preferred venue that it just isn’t worth the effort. Its a crying shame because over the past twenty years many visitors have enjoyed catching the barbel in fabulous surroundings. I doubt I will ever see the river return to its former barbel glory.

I have added the Trent, without doubt the most prolific barbel river in the country, already it is proving to be very popular!

I have a number of venues to choose from on the River Wye and on its day it is possible to catch twenty barbel and as many chub, some of my fortunate clients enjoyed that type of day last season!

The Severn still produces well and once again I have a few options to offer.

So if you would like a day or two just get in touch and I will put something together to suit your specific requirements.
