Last chance for a Warks Avon Barbel?

With the promise of cold weather by the end of the week a final fling for a Warkwickshire Avon Barbel was not to be missed. Fishing the same swim that produced the 9lb 6oz fish, I opted to fish a boilie wrapped in paste since the river had dropped to almost normal and much of the colour had gone. Despite a slow start, I ended up with four fish which was not a bad result for three hours. However, there was no Barbel with three Chub and a Bream of about 4lb coming my way. With the cold snap now with us attentions will have to turn to other species. Even when the weather is cold, so long as it's settled there's always a chance. I will give it a few days so that the fish can acclimatise then see what happens.
