    Losing your mojo?

    I've been suffering the same results but on midland rivers ( dove Derwent Soar) and even the Trent of late. I kind of asked a similar question and it was suggested to me that I needed to fish with a moving bait as opposed to sitting behind a pair of rods pointing sky wards as use to be the way...

    trotting rod

    Hi Mike I also have the 13ft compact plus and found this can struggle with decent chub on the river Dove Which is kind of why I asked the question. As I said in my post its not as if I want to just take a chance a £200+ rod. I've been looking at the Korum Glide 12 to 14ft and at around £80 I...

    trotting rod

    Is the Drennan Acolyte plus 15ft float rod up to trotting for barbel??. I've heard people say they use them but I own one and I'm not sure. You could say go and try it but it's an expensive way to find if its not.

    Wanted Drennan series 7 1.25 Avon/ quiver

    Neil can a local tackle shop get you a pair from drennan. You can't deal with Drennan directly and to find a pair of second hand ones sounds a bit of a long shot. good luck either way.

    Nash barbel elite 2lb rods

    £190 does sound over the top to me. If I remember right they were £80 each when they first came out which is some years ago now. I got mine like I said from Climax tackle and they were end of line then so I got them at £40 Each. As I've also said they are good rods .. I've got a pair of Greys X...

    Nash barbel elite 2lb rods

    I sold a pair of 1.75tcs a few years back but missed them so much I've now got a pair back. Very nice rods and a nice slim blank. As Joe says probably one of the best value rods ever made. My first ones I got from Climax tackle for £40 each and paid more than that to replace them. I've also got...

    Trotting for barbel

    I've been barbel fishing for 20 odd years but never trotted for them so if you don't mind I have a question.. I suppose there could be plenty of different answers but let's see. I just need to know do you fish the bait way over depth to drag it along the bottom or just dragging bottom or is it...
