Well done Ian.
Is there any reason why you pack the barbel kit away so early. I can understand roving with a spinning rod will be warmer than sitting in one spot once it turns cold, but it is still mild and a great time for barbel.

Wow that's an early finish! My barbel fishing season never gets going until October and piking rarely gets going before December.

From September onwards I often find that it's all or nothing, either struggle for a bite or a real red letter day. No doubt that the barbel are back fighting fit though having beefed themselves up ready for the winter.

My best part of the session for Barbel and Chub is in the winter months. There are fewer people on the banks and the natural food like berries, insects, plants start to diminish. Also in the early winter, the fish start to get ready for the colder months stuffing their mouths with proteins. With the later dawns and early evenings even better

I know I will be missing out on some good Barbel fishing but I always start pike fishing
on the 1st of October.

I fished right through last winter until the end of the season for barbel, and kept a record of conditions. I have yet to catch a December barbel, but will be keeping an eye on the river levels and weather to pick the most likely time to catch!
They have to feed at some point each month, and sometimes it's just down to luck if your there i believe.
