I have just got back from a lovely afternoon's barbel fishing. The rising temperature has definitely got them on the munch and I had three whiskers in just a few hours fishing. A 16lb 11oz being my third biggest, 10lb 6oz and a scamp of 8lb.
All these beautiful barbel and a few nice chub were caught using the Hinders Barbel Blitz Barrels wrapped with the matching paste. My tactics for the afternoon was the trusted 10lb Illusion straight through fished with a Fox Size 10 SSBP barbed hook.
