leave them in the net once you land them for 5 mins, then unhook them, then return to the net for another five mins. This is normally enough, occasionally you have to help the a bit, pushing the water over the gills by moving them back and forth.

What Ian says pretty much , once you land the fish , leave it in the net for a few minutes , facing the flow , there's no rush , it's not day ticket carping 😜 then do you weighing ,pictures , put the fish back in the net , and keep it in the flow for a few minutes , till it's looking strong .

Best way is to hold them facing upstream, support them and don't let them go straight away. Make sure they are very strong as they can swim off a yard or 2 and then belly up if they aren't right. Might take a few minutes but they will come round eventually. Never just let them go, or worse still release them from the net from a high bank

I'm staying at Ross on wye 28-29 and 30th of June , then in Hereford early September for another three days 😁
Not wanting to teach anyone to suck eggs ,so to speak ,
But for those having never caught or fished for barbel , just remember , they need much longer than carp to recover , nobody wants to see barbel (or any fish ) floating belley up ,down river .

Generally if you join Hereford club as an associated member you can night fish the 7 miles of bank they operate with two rods and night fishing, very few areas are suitable for bivvies a profile is better, the season for joining is 1st of Jan each year, we have some cracking barbel and chub and many areas of the Wye producing carp in excess of 30lb (if you know where to look)

Where you will be based the carp are few and far between but they are about a few miles down river and they start to become more widespread and right through the city and out the other side.
Around Ross on Wye carp have been caught in fact quite a few years ago now Dan (formerly of Cotswold rods) had one at 36lb from memory.

Wye and Usk foundation have some good stretches also check out Angling Dreams

Adam has some good Barbel,Chub and Pike fishing on his stretches.

As you come out of the pub you have the bridge directly in front of you, left and up river as far as you can get will get you close to the Oxbow lake at the back of Letton court carp hold up on the bend quite often and when the levels are high like now the carp go in and out of the Oxbow lake generally nice deep slack water above the bridge then as you get towards the bridge you start to hit the faster shallower water around here and below the bridge are nice spots for the barbel and chub.

Second link gives a little insight into the pub.

Im Going up there for the first time in September, couldn't find much info on bivvying up so we booked into the Red Lion Pub/hotel. 3 nights 100 quid including breakfast and access to like 4+ miles of the river. Didnt think it was too bad.
Dont know much about the strech but hoping for a barbel and a big chub as i havent caught either before. Hopefully there are some carp about as well.

Late reply.... I fished letton court on the Wye a few years ago, never been to the Wye before and just went for it! 200 miles on my own, could fish under the brolly all through the night. It was 50 for 48hrs. Nights on beat 3, but access to the lot during the days

Day ticketing the Wye on the Hereford club stretches is days only and one rod only most ignore this though for day light angling, if your a member two rods and night fishing is allowed, not sure about other clubs and rules.

You might want to bivvy up on the bank it might be a bit wet in the river.

Maybe check with the people you booked with? Have fished it a couple of times and not sure any of the stretches allowed it as they had start and finish times
