I just took a feeder rod and some pellets so out went a lead and pellet, threw in a couple handfuls of mixed pellets and 2 minutes later the rod was nearly pulled in resulting in what turned out to the biggest barbel of the evening at 6-2.
Second cast brought a barbel of about 5lb and the third cast resulted in a 4-2 chub. I had a few more barbel, all around 5lb, a few small chub, a little trout and a roach of about a pound.
I saw at least 4 different carp swim in and out of the swim during the 2-2.5 hours I was fishing.
I'll be back!
