Well here it is, not only the beautiful summer weather, and some fabulous fish to start the season, but England doing so well in the world cup finals!! (Even if not convincingly). What a start!
There are also places available for day`s out with me, check here….. http://fishingforbarbel.com/coaching/
The barbel have been biting well on the Wye and Teme, and the middle Severn. Float fishing and small baits working well, but as this heatwave prevails, please be sure to rest your fish well in the flow and oxygenated water, making sure they swim off strong, rather than rushing to catch the next. If in any doubt, do not fish.
In my next report I shall endeavor to have lot`s of pictures, in the first week there were some beautiful shots of both fish and scenery which for one reason or another did not get taken, and as we all know, a picture paints a thousand words.
Enjoy the weather, be vigilant, report any concerns!!
