Russ is taking a break from fishing due to illnessDo you know a lad called Russ who fishes it mate ? He’s my dads postman. He’s always on there somewhere hunting for Barbel. He does some nice videos of the Dearne on YouTube. Lovely lad.
Best look sharp I don’t think Geoff has much gear left.
Sad isn’t it but, he’ll pull through. If you’re gonna get it it’s the most treatable C in men and it’s extremely slow growing in most instances so, they can normally see to it. A friend of my misses dad has had it for 30+ years. It’s never spread so they’ve left it.I know Mick. I know Russ
Upstream from the footbridge, but on the Mill Lane side. If you’re walking up river from the opposite side you’ll see the storm drain, that was just to the left of where I fished. It had flooded right up to the water outlet gate, so figured there’d be some fish there trying to escape the flow (and dead pigs).Nice bream those mate! Whereabouts were you? That doesn’t look familiar
Cheers mate. I’m glad you like reading the reports, I like writing them as it gives me something to look back over when I’m struggling. Need to get @AdamRussell93 on the barbel nowSmall river with quality fish! Love it! Great angling and reports coming in from here.
Starting to fall back in love with this river again. It battered my confidence for months. But over the winter, just researched and walked the river and methods and over 3 sessions I’ve managed a few lovely fish. Just want this barbel now!Nice one, that looks an idyllic scene with the Corona. A 3lb chub with just a few casts is a good result. I’ve only been catching four or five fish in a full day and can easily go two hours without a bite.
