Barbel fishing has never been more popular. Amongst specialist river anglers the barbel is now the premier fish and, taking coarse fishing as a whole, barbel is second only to carp. The substantial growth in barbel fishing has been accompanied by a great thirst for knowledge about this fascinating species, and books have been published to help both the beginner and the highly advanced barbel angler. This book, however, is aimed at the intermediate level and will be valuable also to the experienced angler who wants to try his hand at barbel fishing.
