It was the turn of my youngest to try for a barbel,in an afternoon session after our Sunday roast, she had been looking forward to this for weeks, we had great fun up and down banks and roving the Avon. But to no avail even for a chub! The river had been up and the fish feeding in the days before, but for all the anglers we spoke to the same was happening today, nothing. But for Isobel this was not as much of a disaster as it was for me, she loved being out and seeing the wildlife all around us, and looked forward to her tea al-fresco! It was back to school tomorrow so we had to miss that chance into dark, but we stayed till the light was fading and had some tentative pull`s that did not develop. We left with lots of talk about what would be next time!!
