Nice fish Gregg!

Whilst wanting to be clear that I'm not a barbel enthusiast of the type that is against barbel being stocked in lakes, I'd recommend having a crack at catching barbel from a river. That one will have showed you that they have considerable power, just imagine if it had been working out in a flow every day! They're an awesome fish!
