It’s a giant Ouse barbel by Martin bowler, I bought it of another member of this forum, I’ve been trying to track down another one ever since. Most of the action of this rod is through the butt, I’ve had it bent double with carp and barbel.
Alright fellas, been in and out the van grabbing an hour here and there recently, and I’ve snapped the tip of my barbel rod, about 1.5 inch away from the top. Can this be fixed? And if it.can, is there anyone on here that can help?
Hers a couple of carp I caught on the centrepin, I baited a little area on a shady gravel pit and fished for an hour each morning before work. Both fish came within ten minutes of casting out, what a fight from the mirror, hair raising stuff but so much fun. Both on paste, 1oz lead.
Evening all, hope your getting out in the bank, I have a question. I’ve got a tasty looking weir on one of my tickets, but you can’t get near the weir pool because of the high sides. Has anyone ever fished places like this and used a drop net? I’m be used them plenty fishing from piers in the uk...
So this is the story lads, my good wife has given me the choice of what I want to do for my 40th, I love the Hampshire Avon, and would love to get back down there for a bash for a long weekend.
trouble is, I need to factor the wife into things. Anyone done similar in these parts of the world?
