I have been asked if there are any
Barbel in the Bristol Frome?
I have heard the rumours that they have been caught,
I have never in the last 20 years caught one
or ever seen one being caught.
However there are stretches I've not fished
and there could be some there.
If anyone has caught one then I'd expect them to keep
quiet about it as they would never get to fish that area again
as it would be heavily over fished.
I'm going to fish the Frome again after the
summer holidays are over.
