Using Barbel Bomb to Catch Big Roach

Using Barbel Bomb to Catch Big Roach

I purchased some bait from Bryan whilst visiting the Swindon Store at the start of the season. This comprised of the full range of the Elips Products; pellets, paste, flavouring and ground bait etc.

Due to circumstances, I have not been able to get to a barbel river, but settled for short trips to local lakes in Essex. I fished a flat feeder to short 4" hook length, 12 hook and hair rigged band. Ground bait was the Barbel Bomb Feeder Mix and I fished an Elips Dumbell on the band. It was a revelation with so much attention from big roach, upto 2lb 6 oz and 2lb 12oz. also tench and upper doubles carp.

I didn't fish far out and instead of the popular spodding, I catapulted 6-8mm pellets over the area. If takes went quiet, I wrapped the Elips Paste round the dumbell which would produce. I always fish the dumbell outside the feeder, and have had five fish on one bait. The barbel bomb ground bait, dumbells and paste are an inspiration.

Kind regards
John Cole

PS. cant' wait to fish for barbel
