Thanks mate, I was mega happy. Good perspective photo. Someone else's grubby foot, and an XL barbel mat, which it is filling.

Thank you all, it was an amazing fish on the bank, massive. At the time, it was the third biggest barbel ever reported from the Thames. There's been loads bigger caught since. The Thames is a bit different to all the other barbel rivers though. It will do the British record soon. The one that just done 20lb+, was 17lb+ when this was caught. I personally know, where five different fish over 18lb live now. But they are needles, in haystacks. Often one or two fish, in miles and miles of river.

It's very different to say the Loddon, or the Avon and the Stour.

In the Thames, you might have just one or two Barbel, in a five mile stretch, a five mile stretch that is 100 yards wide. That's extreme, but it's the case in some circumstances stock wise. Some stretches may have ten barbel in, in a three mile stretch. A well stocked stretch.

Whatever, it's mega low stock compared to other barbel rivers (before Otters), especially where the monsters are concerned. The further you get from Oxford, the less barbel there are. The Trent and Severn are full of them in comparison. The small barbel population of the Thames, has been given lots and lots of carp anglers bait over the last twenty years though. It will shock the fishing world with the size of the chub and barbel it does over the next few years. I've caught 8lb+ chub on carp gear, I'm pretty sure I caught one a lot bigger to one night, that I did not weigh because it was lashing down like stair rods, and i was half asleep still. That fish was immense. I should have weighed it just to know how big it was.

Fair play bud. Nothing goes like a big barbel especially in deep water when they dive. Barbel notorious for disappearing only to return a few years later .

18lb exactly. From the flooded Thames on the second last day of the season 2017 on a Darent Valley 1.25lb avon quiver, with a tiny Drennan match reel that held 90 yards of 12lb mono. I only had the brand spanking new rods out ten minutes, they still had the plastic and card, wrapped around the cork handles. I'd only been down to the spot four hours before and put in two kilo of spangled up meat and frozens into a slack I'd never fished before. It ragged me absolutely rotten, and I was very lucky to land it. At times it was total stale mate, I just could not move it in the flow with such a light rod. The rod was massively under gunned really. I was getting loads of liners after I caught it, but only stayed for two hours total as it was freezing ,and I was so blown away by that fish. Big mistake, they were gone the next day.

I found out later it's a well known fish, that had not been caught for five years, and was presumed long dead. It's named after some old blokes grand daughter, they caught it Xmas day many years ago at 14lb, which was massive then.

I had one when I was a kid out of Hampton court palace, Iíd just been brought a fox mat which was huge, my first specimen unhooking mat and was 4ft long, I had an eel that was as long as the mat and the thickness of a coke Can I reckon. ****ing huge and I was petrified of it, I cut the hook off as I had never dealt with one before. Itís only now Iím older that in hindsight it was a fish of a lifetime.

Iíve caught very big eels mate, nearly always by accident, so powerful.

A real choker with the recent pit 2 issue, there were some very big eels in there, some were seen by the ramp gasping, when you eels in trouble, you know itís bad.

I walked round to an area where a pike was wallowing, underneath him, on the bottom, which i first thought was a big tree root, it turned out to be a serpent sized eel,and it slid away, appearing ok, who knows?

TBH Steve, thinking beyond 'Carping' for a 'next target' I think a really big Eel has to be right 'up there' for me, but there's something in the back of my mind that says it's not right to target them, being so rare nowadays.
Having said that it might be interesting to see if targeting them could be used by way of studying them officially....hmm

Yeah, the grass carp iíve caught, have fought just as hard in the net, as they have in the water, then thereís the photos

Iíve had some very big eels (by accident) that have given me a very hard time during unhooking too.
Some angry pike,
And a good few mirrors and commons, that have given me a slap of the tail etc, and got very upset with the camera, but the award for being very lively, and unpredictable, must go to the Grass carp, because as you know, they are a very angry/lively fish, to say the least!

Good question re the fight In 2015 I had a 54lb grassy, I fear very few fish but I've the utmost respect for the power and fragility of grassies, one of the reasons you'll never see a pic of me holding one. The thought of a 30+ Barbel I'd be a quivering wreck at the sight of it

Holy ****! Mate, that is incredible! I wonder what it fought like?

Donít think iíve ever caught a barbel that didnít fight, unlike some carp.

37lb barbel, i never thought iíd ever see that, seems unreal. Thanks for the link mate, appreciated

No mate, i love barbel fishing, if i didnít fish for carp, i would go after the barbel for sure.
Fished the Kennet, the Severn, the Colne and the Lea for barbel years ago, loved every minute of it, and it nearly turned my head from carp fishing.

I had unfinished business though with one or two carp

They're so big it's hard to believe they are barbel! Well i'm not used to seeing them that big at least, apart from some in the mags.
Don't know about lucky, sounds like you've earned them to me
It's also really nice to see such big and lovely river fish, after the otters have decimated so many.

You're putting the time and effort in, that's good angling in my book

Great stuff Gerry,, i wondered how the real big barbel fought, iíve only ever had them to 8lb 12oz years ago on the Kennet. They all fought like the clappers, and a mate and me were desperate for a double, and we used to wonder how the big ones would go when hooked.

Thatís bloody good angling though.
What a fish, i honestly canít stop looking at it!

Well pleased for you mate

Yes mate fought like a Demon after 48 hours and 11 hours of heavy rain a load of water pushing thru I could no longer fish my spots so well downstream I noticed a slack eddy on a wide bit it was about the limit of my casting I gave it the biggun and luckily got it perfect and my 5 ozs lead held 30 mins later it ripped off then the fun began 3 times got it to the net fought as good as any carp I have ever caught loved it

Spending a lot more of my time Barbel fishing now, new River syndicate only cost me £250 paying almost £700 for my carp water, which gets packed now, my Barbel stretch I rarley see a soul except a bailiff that stops for a chat on a Sunday.

Just has so much more going for it, yes you got to like your own company but head phones on listen tot he radio, no alarms just the rod tip to watch bliss!!!

Plus the cost, kilo of boilies last me a couple of months, one rod, one reel decent mat and net jobs done, fraction of the cost of one carp rod and reel!!!

Plus loads of exercise roving a 1.5 miles of river bank!!

I used to be on a Carp syndi and they had/have a lovely stretch of the Trent with some very big Barbel and Perch in it (at that time)...one of my regrets, never trying it.

Best bet for you Gerry would be straight down the m4 to the clubs or day ticket stretches of the Kennet. Or I dare say it... the colnes on your doorstep???

Stunning, well done! You're face says a million words, it's good to see some big grins on a photo, I've had enough of the generic look at the head or tail photo!
