Barbel Fisher magazine is published twice a year and members receive their copy free of charge. They are full of informative articles written by the members. Since the very first issues edited by Lawrence Breakspear, the magazine has evolved to become one of today’s “must read” publications. It has gone from strength to strength thanks to contributors and advertisers, but without doubt mostly due to the fine work of the late Gordon Scott, whose vision and dedication has left a solid foundation on which we can all build.

Newsletters are sent to members twice a year to keep them informed of all Society activity. News from the regions, fisheries, conference etc. and updates on all the major issues the Society is involved with make for an interesting read.

A web-site forum is available to registered members only, for discussing all aspects of their fishing .

The Barbel Show is held every year during the close season and is now firmly established in the angling calendar. All the biggest names in angling have given talks, but it is the spirit and camaraderie that brings the members back year after year.

As a member we welcome suggestions to our research and conservation projects, as well as being able to contribute to the research and conservation auction held annually to raise funds for this area.

The biggest benefit of all though, is that you are now part of a strong national organisation full of like minded people who are dedicated to the continued well being of our friend the barbel and its habitat.
