HI Alan / new member with reference to where we fish and what we catch.My father,and fahter inlaw,and best mates are all fortunate to be in prince albert angling society as you know we are spoilt for river fishing in shropshire especially barbel.
we have noticed that different areas of the river bring up totally different situations when it comes to barbel and the way they bite.
For example the barbel at the ferry house ,uffington tend to be slightly larger fish 8/9 lb + fish but their bites are very timid and tend to be isolated fish, now ,fishing cressage south of the bridge towards Shrewsbury the barbel there tend to shoal up a little and bite with that wrenching rod off rest type of bite,espacially when theres a coffee in your hand.The fish here seem to be slightly smaller 4/6lb and seem to be longer/slender type fish.
Im wandering if this is to do with speed of water flow,food in that area or what? Can anybody shed any light ?
