    Anything by Trefor West or Tony Miles, Fred Crouch also, there are a few more I've forgotten as well am sure. Do a search on amazon or google mate!

    Also have a look on the rigs page here, or check out some back issues of coarse fisherman!

    There are a few barbel websites that might be worth checking as well!

    Quest for Barbel (Miles and West) is a good read as is Understanding Barbel by Fred Crouch, although Fred's book (nope I am not on first name terms) is a little older and does not cover more modern tactics, but I would say it is still a truly excellent read!

    I've also got Barbel Mania by Andy Orme but don't think, with the greatest respect, that it touches these other two!

    Fred Crouch is also on the verge of releasing his latest book, also Trefor west latest book " Barbel a lifetimes addiction" is a must read.
