Ah right that would probably be it then. I tried to find the flyer out yesterday as I knew I still had some of them stashed away but it wasn’t in there. Did find some old photos of my mates from v festival mixed in with them thoughJon, the Spanish have the Comizo barbel, I believe that the official record is 37lb.
Have you got a link for the online carte de peche, Mark? I always try for the odd day fishing when on hols in France but often struggle to locate an open 'tabac' to get one and then my dodgy French makes things challenging to say the least.Hi men,
Carte de perche online for a week is about £30 , barbel fishing in France is becoming more attractive , but info is normally through carp pages due to accidental captures etc so carp forums and pages are the best place to look . The carte is a holiday ticket for that price , and covers public fishing which there is tons of , massive massive potential for untapped barbel fishing , perhaps not big fish , but like turning the clock back 20 years here . I'm off back down past Limoges again in October and I'm doing a couple of days on the Vienne river , obviously for carp , but I'm told plenty of barbel , especially in the upper stretches so will report back . One day there will be guided and organised barbel holidays in France along the lines of the carp trips .
If you want to travel ferther , here is somewhere to stay , the owner is a mine of info .
