My first barbel
My name is Charlie Noke and I caught my first ever barbel weighing 2lb 7oz at Fladbury on the river Avon. I caught it on three maggots on a maggot feeder initially targeting chub, it was amazing to catch this unexpected barbel a brilliant session as I caught many dace a chub and a perch my brother fishing with me caught two gudgeon two over half a pound on a stick float.

Day to remember.
Have just returned home from a very pleasant few hours fishing at the BAA Retreat Farm Fishery with my 9 year old Grandson Leigh Heath from Longbridge.Leigh has never been fishing before, and asked me to take him out. The weather forecast for today was good, and I'd already enrolled him as a BAA Member, notified the Environment Agency, and away we went, armed with sandwiches, 2 pints of Fishing Republic white maggots with a handful of reds in and a strong carp pole.I chose a peg on the left hand side of the lake, about 3 pegs before the left hand corner, and set up ready to fish.The depth was about 6 foot, about four sections out, which seemed perfect distance for a 9 year old to fish. A small pot on the end of the pole was used to feed maggots, and we potted in about 20 maggots every put in. Leigh lasted about 3 hours before he got fed up with his Grandad telling him to fish towards the man opposite, and keep the float still........During that time Leigh caught 9 mirror carp and one tiny tench. The carp went to about 4 or 5 lbs, and it was a day out to remember. I was very impressed with Retreat Pools, and it might have been better still if the weed in the pool was dragged out. However, I will be returning with more of my Grandkids in the near future, thank you to the BAA. Kind regards John Swain
