A misty afternoon on Arley RB again for a few hours today, 1 small Chub on meat then went on the corn feeder with liquidised bread after a bream, rod went round, a bloody barbel of all things then it came off at the net ????
Always been wary of corn, Barbel wise anyway, of all the baits, i have read it's great when they want it, but run a mile once they have seen plenty of it, with those two scenarios not taking too long to happen.
Another river where the Bream/Barbel now co-habit the same areas too.
A friend of a friend fishes nothing but corn for barbel on the swale ,ouse and local rivers and also on the rare occasion he goes on the seven or trent and to be honest he does do okay with it but doesn't seem to work for me , all he does is catapult a few handfuls in and fish on top of it,
I drove past the Severn at Bridgnorth today, bit difficult to get a view from the road but I said to myself, "wow the river looks high". Got home and checked levels and it's actually low at the moment as expected. Rain forecast though so doesn't look likely I'll be getting out.
