The Flying Dutchamn

Frans The Flying Dutchman lands next week for his first taste of some english barbel fishing, his wife Tjitske and daughter Linda are also coming over so it will be a holiday as well as plenty of fishing.

For all the lastest catch reports and adventures of the Dutch Thunderbirds keep an eye out here, I will try to keep you updated as the week goes on.

There is a rumour flying around that I might be going horse riding next week, Me, I pity the poor horse

A Cracking day out

Just spent a cracking day at Barford Fisheries near Norwich, what a great little fishery this is and a credit to Sarah Thomson and her team.

I was there to write and photograph a feature for Anglers Mail with young Norwich Match star Steve Crowe.

Steve worked his butt off to make sure we had some action for the cameras, well done Steve.

Here's his best carp of the day a fish not far short of 20lb skillfully landed on 6lb mainline

Sunny Sunny Sutton On Trent

Just back from Sunny Sutton and boy was it hot, had a great couple of days, met some friends old and new. Finished with 11 Barbel in total and a nice Tan.

Some images from the trip

As you can see the high light was a flying display from the Vulcan Bomber, it was in the area for around 40 minutes flying right overhead on several occasions.

The Trent is in a mean mood today, it might just be because it's very hot and very bright
