Near bewdley. A great water, with deeper holes and shallow runs.

A tough day for me, but Karl caught a couple of very small barbel. We both fished pellet until it started to fall dark. Then switching on to meat on one rod. As you can see in the photos on the diary page the water was running low and clear - without doubt the fish were in my swim, due to the amount of fish flashing. I just wasn't skillful enough to catch em!!

I was thinking about trying this stretch as I haven't fished it before. I know that you have Tim, so any hints & tips etc would be appreciated.
Whoever said nothing is impossible, never tried slamming a revolving door!

I fish here a lot. I've had three decent sized barbel one of over 12lb, the other two 5lb and 8lb.

I've fished a variety and not found one method to work more over another. Pellet feeder, maggot feeder, ledgered meat etc.. had one on each method. Pellet feeder dragged in a lot of chub to feed too.

Usually end up hooking them barbel when I'm on the stick float for roach at the bottom end. Typical with a 1 1/2lb bottom.

I had a bigish barbel from here, not sure on size. Had it on a open end feeder rammed with meat and hemp. I had a last chuck it and chance it cast with a white chocolate boillie.. my bait runner screamed off. Result!

Clueless, as I forgot scales but it was a lump and a half. My biggest yet I would say. And very nice and fat.
