    Default Bloemfontein Barbel Challenge

    Hi Gents
    Checkout Flyfishing magazine.There is an article about the inaugural BBC (bloem barbel challenge)The festival was a real success and awesome weekend fishing for something different(for most entrants anyway).It is certainly a completely different experience than what you are used to.Hope to see more forum members at the next one though.

    Hey, only those who were present on the BBB1 ( Bloem Barbel Bonanza ) are allowed to use the word reprobates. Otherwise just eat your green mielies.

    No WAYS. Special water is for "Reprobates ".
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.

    I thought Barbel was "by catch"...didn't know that anyone would want to target them specifically.....I must be real snob.
    Disclaimer.... none of my posts are intended to be "expert advice"..just opinions from someone who is willing to help where he can.

    Depends where you fishing.If in the vaal or orange its not my fish of choice,but in their "home" waters not much comes close to hunting big baber in shallow waters.The take,the explosion,the run etc,its something else
