Pushing through
A few hours in the evening down the Don with my mate Paul (25/06/04). 

One of the rods bust early on, so we had to take turns.  We managed 2 Barbel and 1 Chub each, but one of my Barbel was only a 1lb stockie.

I've put a new section in for Fish Types.

For those of you out there who aren't fishermen (or fisherwomen), having a look at these photos might explain one reason why fisherman like fishing.
