Wye Barbel On the Method

bowler-barbel2If you haven’t tried the Method feeder for river barbel, Martin Bowler thinks you could be missing out!

The top all-round specimen hunter is a massive fan of the tactic, as he proved with an early season session on the River Wye. He typically tackles up with a Drennan Big River Barbel rod and freespool reel matched to 15lb ESP Syncro XT line and pre-tied ESP Mega Method Rigs braided hooklength.

The real key to the tactic, however, is the feeder and Martin swears by the extra large ESP Method feeders. Loaded with fish-attracting Richworth Xtracta groundbait laced with pellets and crushed boilies, it’s a winning combo you have to try this season!
