Great you have opened the comments box, Martin. Is this nearly the biggest you have taken?
Martin Robbins: Thanks Lis, It's not the biggest barbel, but I'm very happy when I catch them this size........the biggest barbel I've caught is 13 and 3/4lb, but the UK record is over 20lb! So there's plenty to keep striving for! smile
I would be mighty proud to catch a whopper like this, Martin. BRAVO!
Martin Robbins: Thank you Ginnie! I get the same satisfaction, as I did when I was a youngster catching tiddlers! smile

Good catch! Sushi, pan fried or coal grilled?
Martin Robbins: Thanks Louis smile Ah, this one should still be swimming around today........I released him soon after and he gave a strong swish of his tail as he rejoined the current!
That is a fine specimen...The fish is good too grin
Martin Robbins: Thanks Bill :-D
Hi Martin, nice to see you are still fishing. You might remember me saying my son fishes, well under the posting here for last Friday you will see what he caught last week, he hasn't had anything like it for a very long time.
Martin Robbins: Wow, that was a catch! A lovely common carp smile Yes, I still love fishing........always try to make some time for it. It's funny what you say about your son not having caught anything so big for a while; I have the same cycles of bounty and hope! Thanks Brian smile
Wow! I am glad we get to comment. That is a beautiful fish with it's very long pink fins. Well done.
Martin Robbins: Thanks Mary.....I really love the look of these fish; they're river dwellers, rather than still water fish, hence their shape. smile
