September was a strange month on the barbel front. Traditionally for me it is the start of the 'proper' barbel fishing. With the fish looking to go hard on the feed in preparation for the winter ahead. For whatever reason this just didn't seem to happen and the fishing was very hard, I landed a few fish but not a lot of note, the one highlight of the month being my 3rd different 12lber off the Avon off 3 different stretches. Pulling the scales round to a very healthy 12.10, it was all the more satisfying as it came from a stretch I had not fished before and was my 1st double on pellet.
