A NEW barbel fishing group has been formed and they already have 250 members across the country.

The Association of Barbel Fishers strated last October and have just had their first AGM and raised over £500 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

They don’t aim to get too heavily involved in angling politics but have a friendly, social club and they’ve already got three stretches of river fishing and hope to get more.

To find out more about the, visit their website at: www.barbelfishers.com
