Lubbly Chubbly

Colder today and the barbel are not so keen not to worry at least the chub are feeding

Wednesday, 12 October 2011


Under orders from the doctor not to get too stressed out, so decided a quiet day by the river might be good
But it's been anything but quiet over 20 barbel between the 2 of us and still fishing.

Including this Biggun

Been stressed out by an angel all day whose name begins with T and I am sure she was sent to test me,,, I think I may have failed

Love you T

New Tackle on Test

I have had a sneak preview of all the new tackle due out soon from Korum, its great to be involved with such a professional team as Korum and its always exciting to see new tackle items especially when the idea is your own and you have seen the product from idea through to being in the shops.

Look at these great new maggot feeders, Mmmm very useful on the Severn and Trent can also see them being great in Holland and Germany, just might need some extra lead to hold bottom

Had a few days away this week fished a very low and clear Severn, had a few fish but it was not easy, did a great magazine feature with Total Coarse Fishing, great feature and a few fish so can't wait to see it in picture and print.

After myself and Tjitske had a good day on the Trent last week we may have another go this coming week, only this time I will have to look out after she out-fished me last time.

Very impressed with the new Korum Running Rig Kit, been using them for a little while and have found them to be very good and virtually tangle free, just what's required with a long hook-link in running water.

With the weather now looking a bit more normal for the time of year it would be good to see the rivers with a bit of extra water and then it spells only one thing for me BARBEL TIME.

Well Done to my old mate and top angler Glenn Hubbard, who has set a new match record just short of the magic Ton with 98lb 12oz from the match length of the River Wensum in the centre of my home town Norwich. Fishing worm and caster he found a shoal of bream very hungry and caught from the off, well done Hubby.

Good luck if you are fishing over the next few days the fish are hungry winter is just around the corner.
