A great chat about floodwater barbel

Dr Paul Garner joins barbel ace Lewis Baldwin on the middle reaches of the river Severn near Bridgnorth for a chat about barbel fishing tactics, especially floodwater fishing. They talk about the development of Lewis’ barbel fishing, from his early days on the river Severn, to specimen fishing on the Warwickshire Avon, Dove and Trent. How baits and tactics have changed on these rivers and the changing face of barbel fishing. Then they go on to have a look at how to approach a flooded river. Covering swim choice, where to fish, rigs and baits. Along the way Lewis catches a few fish too.
