COME HELL OR HIGH WATER (Barbel) – Blog entry 652

This week’s blog entry is very specific as it focuses on floodwater barbel fishing on the middle Severn. Many anglers are deterred by extra water, but as you can see in the video there’s no need to be. The question ‘Why do barbel anglers like flooded rivers?’ is also answered.

I also open up my bait cupboard to the camera and take a trip down memory lane as I remember my very first double-figure barbel and why the memory keeps coming back. There’s also a very important website highlighted with essential information for river anglers.

As well as a keen angler I’m also passionate about British nature and I take you on a tour of my local birding patch, Turls Hill in Sedgley.
