Unlike many other internet forums, we insist that all members on our message boards post using their own, real names. We hope that this will mean that our website is a more pleasant place to be for everyone involved.
If you would like to post on Barbel Fishing World, you need to become a registered member. In order to become a registered member, we need you to confirm your identity.
You can do this in one of the following ways:

You will receive details of your free membership by email. We add you to the forum system manually so your membership details will not be included as part of your order receipt emails, and will take longer to arrive with you.
2) Contribute to our chosen charity through the BFW Shop using your credit/debit card. We will then donate the moneys collected to our chosen charity on a yearly basis. Click here to do this. We add you to the forum system manually so your membership details will not be included as part of your donation receipt emails, and will take longer to arrive with you.
3) Contribute to our chosen charity by sending a cheque for £10, made payable to ‘Barbel Fishing World’ to:
