I tend to only have Saturdays to fish on the river unless itís the Dane which is local to me. So if I go to the Severn which is where Iíve done any barbel fishing so far itís an hour and halfís drive so other than checking the levels the night before i kind of just go and hope for the best. I think I might just start taking the float rod as well.

Usually I tend to fish to conditions, as the conditions at the time will probably dictate what species would be most likley to feed.

Winter, as already stated, I dont target Barbel when the water is "cold" but a mild spell with a decent river level will see me on the river using Maggots as they always seem to work well in that scenario, a cold day/night will see me on a beach after Cod, dependent upon tide /wind/swell and location, a cold day, any conditions, rain, wind or just cold and still, even with ice on the banks will see me after Pike in any one of a number of Reservoirs.

Chub are always there when the river is clear and are Grayling, or Roach.

So many variations always something to do.

I for one am happy to 'declare' for this year, if only so that my year-on-year tally keeps rising next year.
