For those new to the club the Barbel Fish‐In is held in memory of Chris Humphry, a passionate angler who loved his barbel fishing, particularly on the Rother at Coultershaw. Lynnette, Chris’s widow, comes along to meet with the anglers and to hand over the trophy to the winner. We don’t always manage to catch a barbel at these events, and last year’s fish-in was no exception, so let’s hope that holding this event a little later in the season pays off!
We have regular attendees, but if you are coming along for the first time or are a novice barbel fisher, you’d be very welcome, but please bear in mind the advice contained in our handbook regarding choice of tackle. The event also provides an opportunity for new members to meet and chat with experienced barbel anglers as well as raising money for charity; each year the money we raise on the day goes to Lynnette’s chosen charity.
We look forward to seeing our barbel anglers at Coultershaw in the lower car-park for the draw at 12.00 with fishing from 12.30 to 19.30. Because of the recent popular Barbel School workshops, it is likely that this year’s fish-in will be even better attended, so places will be sought after and limited. To join us for the fish-in, or if you need further information, please register by emailing Peter Foster or ring/message him on 07711 230128.
