Hi...

Looking to start up barbel fishing again as my son is desperate to go fishing on the river. I grew up fishing the Kennet (R&DAA etc) and on the Thames but now live in West Wales. Love all types fishing from fly to drop shot.

Planning to try out the Wye and Severn but not sure where to start. Any advice on which venues to try to break me in slowly will be gratefully appreciated!

Hopefully will bump into a few members of the bank.

Hi David, happy to help too, where are you based and how far are you prepared to travel ?
Hi Cliff,

Probably Hereford area is probably as far North as we can easily go. We are near Carmarthen so about a 2hr drive. But we don't mind a bit of camping if there are good sites nearby.

Looks like we will be waiting until September now before we start trying a few stretches. Been looking at quite a few Wye and Usk stretches but some seem quite pricey for two people - especially when one of us is only 10!
