Spawning Time

With the nice weather over the last few weeks its time the barbel got round to some spawning, we need some continued good weather not only for the spawning but to make sure the fry get a chance to put some weight on and grow well before any bad weather.

The group shot below was taken on the Wensum this time last year, my big worry is how many of these adult fish have mad it through the winter, with continued problems with otters I some how doubt many have made it through.

I will keep an eye out over the next few weeks and try to find out.

Hopefully in the next few days I will be catching a few barbel, keep an eye on my blog to find out if  I succeed.
