Had a great evening's fishing on the
lower derwent after barbel.having
been twice allready with no fish caught
i was hoping it was gonna be third time
lucky and thankfully it was.
got down fishing around 5.30pm,got my
first bite after 6pm turning out to be my first
barbel of the season,pictured below didnt
weigh but estimate around 6lb
happy to get the monkey off mi back.
fished on until after 7pm when my rod
looped over again,this one seemed very fit
making several runs before i got her in the
net,this one weighed 7.11 lb(below)
carried on with little twitches on both
rods until 8.30pm when the downstream
rod was going crazy with what seemed
a very powerful fish,thought at first it was a
carp but after several minutes brought it
into the net another barbel but bigger than
the previous two.weighed in at 12.12 lb (below)
equalling my personal best barbel.
well happy carried on till 9.30pm and yet
another barbel this one went about 5 lb.
four barbel in one short session ,great action
cant wait to go again.strangely i could not
get a touch on halibut pellets but caught all
on a first time bait for me from small sample
pack.i will be ordering some more today!
