River Teme Fishins – June 30 – 1st July and 4th – 5th August

Due to popular demand we are running 2 separate weekend fishins on the Barbel Society stretch of the River Teme at Bransford.

Saturday 30th June – Sunday 1st July

A beautiful piece of river, great for roving about and spotting barbel and chub.

Otter Petition

The Barbel Society have launched a government petition calling for the control of the otter.

It is for the control, and hence research of the otter. It has NOTHING to do with the word ‘cull’. Read the wording. Therefore, every angler can sign this petition with a clear conscience!

This is a chance for all of us to do something positive.

Barbel Society Newsletter – November 2017

Editor’s Note:

Hi everyone, and welcome to the latest Barbel Society newsletter. I’ve recently taken on the role of Newsletter Editor and aim to send out regular updates, hopefully one every couple of months. The Society’s members and the committee are working hard on many fronts, and our membership continues to grow. The annual RC&L auction should be out soon and plans are in hand for next year’s BS Show. The RC&L team have been busy, recently attending meetings with the Angling Trust and PAG (Predation Action Group). The latest Barbel Fisher magazine is about to go off to the publishers and should be out before the end of the year. Plans are ongoing for several European events in both this country and abroad. Negotiations are in progress regarding potential new waters to be added to our portfolio next season. This summary is not inclusive of everything that is happening, merely just a flavour of the activity that is ongoing
