Following my post regarding Bob Roberts double figure Barbel capture from the PAD stretch of the Trent, where on 28th and 29th September many of you are joining me for the Trent Fish-in.

I have had a couple of E-Mails asking me for Bobs Secret

Well, I E-Mailed Bob and Secret? No way,

He generously came up with the following information.
Quote

Tackle: Daiwa Powermesh barbel rod (designed by me!), Daiwa
SS3000C Reel, 10lb bs Daiwa Infinity main line and hook link, Large
Thamesley feeder, open one end, free-running and stopped by two beads, 18
inch hook link, size 7 ESP raptor T-6 hook, knotless knot, Mistral Arctic
Anchovy 15mm boilie. Fed approx 3 pints of hemp, split between two areas
(two rods), feeder loaded with 30% mixed size trout pellets/ marine pellets/
Ellips pellets, 70% hemp. Plugged with fairly dry groundbait.

Caught first fish (8-10) at 11.45, second (10-8) at 04.15.

End Quote

So anyone wishing to emulate Bob now knows how he did it!

I dont know the availability of the rod and reel, but the Terminal Tackle is on the shelves.

Thanks again Bob, for your company, your information, (which belies the Specimen Hunters legendary secretiveness) and success in all you attempt


Here's Bob with the 10lb 8oz Barbel (Peg ! PAD Trent 4.15 am Sat 31st/8/02)

Make's me laugh how "ORDINARY" people always recon that the known anglers are tight lipped and wont pass on their "secrets".

In all the years i've fished i've asked many well known match anglers and specimen anglers for advise and help and EVERY ONE has been as helpfull as they could be.

All you have to do is ASK, (just as Trev has done and with great success).

The only time i've come across any angler that IS secretive and wont help has been when talking to people that THINK they should be well know.

As regulars will know i hate the anglers that are secretive or even worse the one's that give you the total wrong information (these should be shot).

Personaly i keep NO secrets and if people ask what or how, i have and always will help.

Keep up the great work Trev we all love it and it just makes the 28th/29th get nearer and nearer.

I'm really surprised you haven't put up the link to Bob's site.

click here

He's a really helpful fella who will answer any questions you care to ask him.
I asked him a couple of questions early last year & he replied really quickly which is the one of reasons i went out & brought his vids etc.

There seems to be one or two glitches since they moved the site to another server but its still worth a look.

I'll have a fiver on the black un

Alan,
Thanks,

The answer is quite simply, Bob was too modest to even give it to me!
Even more impressive.
He works for a company called Jarvis and all my contacts have been via E-Mail, so again, a Daiwa consultancy is probably not as lucrative as the envious may think.

Even more generous of him to freely give such help.
I look forward to exploring the site Alan and thanks again.
