Thread: 100th thread!

    I've posted regularly since the forum opened and have found it generally useful from a reference perspective. Barbel fishing also seems to polarise opinion so the political angle is well covered as well. But is there enough specific material relating to Barbus Barbus to warrant having a separate section or should it be rolled back into Coarse Fishing? What is there to discuss in the close season and doesn't it get covered in depth elsewhere (BFW et al)?

    but its still the off season and things should pick up after june 16th and i think it should stay as it is got quite used to it being at the top of the forums listings.

    Anyway,why go to BFW,when you have all the help you need here.
    You'll only end up with some one disagreeing with you,just for the sake of it,on there. ;o0

    Baz,
    I hope you have got some evidence to support that allegation ;-)

    He sold them the vehicle and one of his confiscated bivvy's ;-)

    That said and not wanting to hijack the thread ;-0

    I am somewhat ambivolent to the Barbel Forum not having fished for them for a long, long time.

    I suppose two schools of thought are evident:

    1. It keeps some of the major arguments off of the Coarse and General threads, but . . .

    2. Is there really enough content to justify a separate forum?

    If I were to be honest then I'd have to say that giving the Barbel a separate forum only served to further segregate the Barbel angler from other Coarse anglers and adds to the 'cult' status that this fish has attained in recent years.

    Still, each to their own.

    so by setting up a separate interest forum, the participants become segregated from the wider community eh? interesting concept peter..


    can we have a bailiff forum? ;-)

    MJ, maybe my comment came across a little 'heavier' than intended - if the Barbel threads had remained within the confines of the General or Coarse forums then I am sure that a lot more FM readers would have seen and read them, as like me, I only open the Barbel forum once in a blue moon.

    Mind you, I'd second a Bailiff Forum ;-)
