Nice Barbel mate. Not being rude mate but are you fishing for the Barbel when catching them or fishing for the carp. I just ask as thought Barbel liked the faster paced runs and the carp liked the slower stretches.
Also is it possible to carp fishing methods and rigs to catch Barbel?

Hi mate,
I am after the carp and have caught one just in the flow but belive it or not most of the barbel have been caught under my feet out the flow. The rule about the carp like the slow and the barbel like the flow is not how its been happening for me this season, i am fishing the same as i would on a lake carping same gear, rigs and bait. I have caught lots of barbel using a size 8 Korda curved on Korda IQ2 hooklink in 10lb with running leads and only use boilies in 14mm. You should get on your local river and give it a go you never know what your going to get. I had a go last night in a peg which i had a 20lb+ carp out of last year, and guess what this peg is right in the flow with just a little slack bit of water at your feet, I spooked a big last night while moving my bank stick. I did get one take about 10.30 and got a barbel at 8lb6oz which stuffed me in the weed and thats using my carp gear if you go to light you wont get them out.....
