Steve Collett is on the River Severn near Hampton Loade fishing for barbel. The river here isn't wide and with some recent rain is now running fast so Steve goes through the tactics and set up you'll need to make the most of a session in these conditions. Using a little watercraft, Steve is able to identify where barbel will be sitting in the heavier water and target them accordingly.
