Back to work

Had a good 4 days off but it's back to work tonight

Walked in The Malverns on Sunday which was something I have never done before but will definitely be doing again, great walking with breathtaking scenery.

Caught a few barbel from the Severn only fished for about 6 hours in total but managed 5 average size but none the less cracking fish.

Had a great meeting yesterday with the team at Preston innovations and looked at some new tackle ideas and products, a special thanks to Ian Day at Sonubaits for not only giving me a chance in the first place but being a great mate and very supportive ever since, cheers Ian I appreciate it

The next few weeks are looking tough to say the least but I know the support from my family, my friends and one special person will get me through it.

Remember one and all

The Truth Never lies

Barbel 3000 and Counting

Whilst in Germany last week i was lucky enough to land and record my 3000th barbel, caught from the mighty Rhine and just short of 10lb, but none the less rewarding and very special as good mate Tom Sayer was there to witness and photograph the fish.

Also a big thanks to Cees because without his help fishing would have been a lot less productive

Germany Again

I along with Tom sayer have just returned form a short trip to Germany fishing in the Wesel area, our hosts for the trip were local expert Cees Van Dongen and his good lady Heike. I would like to thank them both for their hospitality and allowing us the pleasure of stating with them.

Before our arrival Cees had worked hard and made sure we had plenty of places to fish with a good chance of catching a barbel or 2, when Tom hooked the first barbel of the trip not many minutes after starting we never looked back.

Getting a fishing licence in Germany is not easy and over an hour spent in a council office proved that but with Cees help we finally got there but it wasn't easy by any means

During the trip Tom managed 17 barbel and I had 15 very rewarding results and mostly down to the hard work of our local expert, so well done Cees
