That will do for a start

First Trent barbel of the season, shoal fish but none the less most welcome.

Let's hope for a few more.

Back Home

Just got home after a nice break in Germany and Holland

Very good to catch up with old friends and also to visit family and catch up with the latest gossip!

I very much enjoy big river fishing and they don't get much bigger than the Rhine, BIG ships, Big feeders, Big fish. I didn't manage to find any of the very big barbel but did get a few and to me they all count.

Spent a very pleasant day in the company of Rinko and Wendy and along with our great friends and hosts for the trip Cees and Heike we shared a full day on the Rhine, the fishing was slow but the company was great, Rinko managed 3 barbel and I know he enjoyed the challenging conditions so much he will be back for more.

Along with Cees we crossed the border for a day in Holland where the barbel were a bit more obliging and I was well happy with the 4 I managed from the Ijssell, the sunset at the end of the session was well worth the trip alone, who says big rivers have no beauty.Also met up with Mike and Marcel for a catch up.

Finished the trip with over 40 barbel and some great memories

Special thanks to Cees and Heike for great hospitality and friendship.

Also thanks to Frank and Riny also to Tim, it was good also to meet Rinko and Wendy
