Looking out over a swollen River Trent
Waiting for a bite.

This is the Barbel Society Fish In at Sutton On Trent (15/08/04)

The river was up a few feet and out of sorts, but luckily, I managed my first Sutton Barbel - weighing about 3lb. Not a monster but very welcome anyway.

After the fish In I ended up at a section of the middle Trent.
After a slow start I ended up with 15 Barbel, 3 Chub and a Bream.  A very busy 4 hour period!

Above, Left, Right & Below! : Had a very busy session on the Tidal Trent (08/08/04).  Started off badly with 2 Bream through the main part of the day, so I moved pegs.  
I ended up with 8 Barbel, 13 Bream (averaging 5-7lb!) and 2 Common Carp.  Another angler landed a Barbel of 8lb 10oz while I was playing a fish on the other rod.  I also lost 3 Barbel, 2 of them when the mainline sheared on rocks and 1 was a hookpull.
