Dylans Birthday Barbel!!!!

Post by metalmark on Mon Jul 02, 2012 11:46 am

I took my Eldest Dylan to the Dorset Stour "Throop" for a days fishing for his 15th birthday as he loves his Freshwater fishing, we stopped at Davis Tackle in Christchurch for some bait & to get the permits (By far the most helpful tackle dealers I have ever been to), then set off to find a good looking spot, we decided on section 3 as its less fished than the other 2.... we both had good numbers of decent sized Roach to 1.1/2lb and loads of great conditioned Dace along with the obligatory Bleak n gudgeon on light Float tackle.... Dylan wanted something a little bigger so set up a ledger outfit, fishing baits varied between, bunches of maggot over hemp, sweetcorn, luncheon meat and breadflake in the hope of a decent Chub! He missed a great run on the maggots, of which he was gutted, but i said that he should whack a nice cube of meat out in the same swim and wait..... well he wasnt to be dissapointed for long as a screamer of a run developed, when he struck he thought he had hit a snag, but then his rod just doubled over and the fish took off downstream, after 15mins of a great scrap on a quivertip, 8lb line and size 12 hook this beasty was slipped into the waiting net!




OMG..... not bad for his first ever Barbel, all 10lb 8ozs of it!

What a Birthday Pressie eh?
