    Fish at the top end of the Burton Joyce bellow the wear. You only have to fish thirty or so meters out to be into the Barbel. 18" hook lenght of 10lb braid would be best. Keep a steady flow of bait going in and if luck is with you!
    I have only had Chub on this stretch during the day with the odd Barbel after dark.
    Good luck!
