Des Taylor kicks off a new fishing series with a return trip to his favourite river, the Severn in search of some specimen Barbel. After prebaiting, Des talks us through his swim choice and the features that provide the Barbel here such a good habitat, before going into detail about his rod, reel and preferred rig set up. After casting his baits into a snaggy area on the far bank, Des sits back and waits and it isn't long before he's rewarded with a cracking 5lb Chub which although not the intended species is very welcome nonetheless. As the rain starts, Des gets into his first Barbel and although it isn't huge, it puts a up a great fight. In a break from the action, Des talks us through his special groundbait mix which he says has helped him bank more than 1600 fish in the past 5 years. The swim goes quiet for a while and Des notices big Pike loitering around so decides to pull the rods out and 'repair' the swim with some more groundbaiting. After giving the swim a good rest, Des is soon back into fish again, completing a brilliant session on the River Severn with a lump of a Barbel . If you like Barbel fishing then this a great feature length episode from one of the UK's best and most knowledgable Barbel anglers. To watch just login or join
