Barbel Fishing World (BFW) was established in 1996 by Andy Frances and was originally intended as a hobby. When the site first went live, bfw had just a handful of members who visited and posted on the message boards as well as contributing articles and details of their catches. Through the continued support of these visitors and many new members over the years, bfw has become established as the most popular barbel site on the web!
