Here I will update with details of my angling experiences, tackle tinkering, fly tying and other trips out into the countryside.

I guess no-one thinks that this barbel fishing lark is easy but some times it can give you a right slap in the chops. No sign of the powerful river prince on my last few trips to the Dove. I'll keep trying as I know from talking to others that far more experienced anglers than I can go a good few trips blanking when in search of a bertie.
So some pictures of this delightful river to enjoy, it really does look a picture in the first flushes of autumn.
Also, there is still the chub to save the dreaded blank. I have caught six of these fish in my last few trips and they could all be from the same mould.
