    Rother ? Didn't know that had barbel WoL. What about the Medway, Fordcombe, about 20 mins from the office.

    Never tried there myself (yet!) but there's also the Teise, you can fish it on a day ticket from Frant Lakes.

    Serious indeed Bully, apparently the barbel population in the Teise is on the increase.... or so I'm told!

    Deliverance?! didn't think it was quite so bad myself when I've fished the lakes at Frant ()

    The "upper" Medway at Ashurst through Fordcombe to Pensurst and below contains a reasonable head of barbel. Controlling clubs are Royal Tunbridge Wells, Penshurst and Bromley.

    South of you there is the Sussex Ouse that contains barbel as well above Lewes at Barcombe Mills and above. Controlling clubs include Isfield and Ouse Angling Preservation Society.

    AFAIK there are no day tickets for the Upper Medway but I think you can get day tickets for the Ouse from local tackle shops.
