Barbel fishing has never been more popular. Amongst specialist river anglers the barbel is now the premier fish and, taking coarse fishing as a whole, barbel is second only to carp. The substantial growth in barbel fishing has been accompanied by a great thirst for knowledge about this fascinating species, and books have been published to help both the beginner and the highly advanced barbel angler. This book, however, is aimed at the intermediate level and will be valuable also to the experienced angler who wants to try his hand at barbel fishing.

Practical Barbel Fishing provides sound advice about how to catch barbel of a variety of sizes in different kinds of rivers. It is easy to follow and understand, full of top tips and always recognizes that fishing should be fun.

Topics covered include:

  • Discusses the general behaviour of barbel and their feeding habits
  • Presents in-depth advice on equipment and on how to choose the best rods, reels and accessories
  • Analyses how to choose the right waters and pick the most productive swims
  • Provides detailed information about choosing and using baits
  • Considers the mechanics of how rigs work and how to make basic and more advanced rigs
  • Includes full explanations of various techniques, including fishing in extreme conditions, swimfeeder and float fishing, back-leading, roving, upstream legering and much more
  • Examines bite indication, touch legering, playing, landing, weighing, photographing and caring for barbel
  • Covers how to prepare for longer sessions, night fishing, pre-baiting and baiting strategies
