hi all looking to do a bit of barbel fishing on the ribble i am in prince albert. Just after some advice really as we all know the ribble is very snaggy and losing tackle is unavoidable but whats the best way to fish it. i went last year and lost 5 leads in one session. Also when is the best time to fish for barbel, as i am relatively new to river fishing can someone shed some light on the water level reading like at ribchester the current reading is 0.264m, and if anyone could give me some advice when the ribble in general is best to fish like if its at a certain level. any help much appreciated thanks in advance.
