  4. Barbel fishing on the River Ribble - discuss

    It is now 18 months since I last caught a Ribble barbel. The foremost reason for this is that I don't fish that often these days and probably the second is that most of my trips are early morning to...

    Re: Cage Feeders

    Forgot to add that the River Ribble is for the most part a swimfeeder consuming monster (in my experience) so therefore you need items that will take some hammer.

    Re: Maggots

    Have found that River Ribble fish seem to prefer red maggots over other colours. Maybe this is because more red maggots than others go into the river ie a self-fulfilling prophesy.

    Re: Preston/Fylde area coarse fishing

    Hi Steve
    I'm a long time RADAC member and I also live in Lytham. There isn't much coarse fishing in the immediate Lytham area so RADAC is a good bet. Small correction to what somebody said above,...

    Re: feeder reel
