Ouch That Hurts

A few weeks ago whilst I was in Germany I met up with Hendrik And Bianca a couple of Dutch barbel enthusiasts. They learnt a lot on the German trip and decided to put some of their new found skills to use and fish the Waal today.

First cast Bianca hooked and landed a good fish pictured above and not long after that fish was returned the baitrunner screamed again and this time it was Hendriks turn..

Unfortunately while trying to net the fish Bianca fell and broke her wrist, not good especially as the fish were feeding!!!!!

Hope it's not too painful Bianca and you 2 are back out fishing again soon.

Well Done Doug

Last week I spent a day on the Severn with the team from Korum and Total coarse fishing magazine. A good day was had by all including Doug Povey who caught one of the best barbel of the day.

Well Done Lee

Back from the Trent yesterday evening finished with 6 barbel and plenty of bream, river was low and clear but ended up well up with no colour and full of rubbish which didn't help the fishing. No excuses still had a good trip, Tuesday evening had a nice social with Dave and Alex Sneesby and Mr FFF Fisky. good job they brought plenty of milk water and tea bags or I would have ran out. Cheers also to Paul Garner as always great photos from a great bloke.

Just had a text from old mate Lee Hayes who is on the middle Severn this week and has smashed his P.B. and recorded his first double with a fish of 11.09.....Well done Lee

Back in Holland

Had to think for a minute if I was back in Holland when this barge passed through but unlike Holland this ones only a few hundred tons and most likely the only one I will see today.

Back to reality on The Trent just had my first fish a small dace hoping for a barbel or 2 once the tide starts to run.

Back Home

Back home late yesterday evening after another great trip with the rivers running high and the weather wet wild and windy at times it was never going to be easy did manage 19 barbel that brings the season count to well over 100 from 7 different rivers target being 10 different rivers for the season.

Fished the Waal the last day for a few hours and managed 5 barbel all on pellet and monkey tactics.

Many thanks to Tjitske, Frans and Linda for looking after us so well as always we had a great time yet again.

Back to work tonight but with plenty of memories, video and images I have lots to do over the next few days to catch up.
