    French barbel fishing

    Managed 14 barbel in a 4 hour session on a section of The River Meuse this week. Europe is the place lads, and Ade Kiddell is the best angler I’ve ever fished with by a country mile.

    What are bucket bags like as roaming tools

    Mine is the smaller of the two sizes, 10L I believe, it’s brilliant, although I don’t use it so much now as I used to

    What are bucket bags like as roaming tools

    I have the Fox camolite one and didn’t pay anywhere near that price. One of the best bits I’ve got for roving style, highly recommend.

    Hello- I am new to the forum.

    Ahhhh a little downstream from where I usually go. There’s a lot of fish to be had around there though so I hear. Best of luck to you on your barbel journey, they’re a magnificent species and lots of fun

    mortimer & whitehouse gone fishing

    Great show, but from experience I’d advise against using “Angling Dreams” as a booking agent for the River Wye (which I know the BBC used for the last episode) I’ve not gone public with my story yet, and there may be some people on this forum who are mates with Adam Fisher, but I had the worst...

    Pellets

    Agreed Josh. I’ve definitely had good bags and bad bags of the same brand and sent before. My go to will always be Sonusbaits spicy sausage now though, they always seem to be quite potent and I’ve had good success on them.

    Pellets

    Chris, Sonusbaits also do a eliptical style pellet. I think they’re a tad better than hinders too

    Which ever Mr Kiddell wants to take me! With how difficult it’s been on the UK rivers, I can’t wait to get over there!

    Items you have purchased to use while fishing without paying carp tax

    I’ve wasted some money on tackle, buying bits that I thought were great at the time, later realising I’d made a mistake after one or two uses, and then looking to buy the other brands version almost immediately. I don’t know why I wanted to share that, I just saw the title of the thread ‘carp...
