This two part DVD set is essential viewing for barbel fishing enthusiasts. Presented by top all round angler, Angling Times columnist and front man for Discovery’s “Total Fishing” show on T.V., Matt Hayes, showing the methods and techniques Matt uses to locate and catch barbel in both summer and winter. The latest rigs and modern tackle feature heavily in the video and Matt shows you how he uses them to devastating effect by catching a string of barbel from two very different venues. The summer action takes place on the Great Ouse, a river which has a reputation for producing very big fish, but one that is notoriously difficult. Learn from Matt as he goes about tackling the residents of a club water near Milton Keynes, revealing in the process rigs and ideas which he has never previously publicised. To prove his point, Matt catches some superb barbel. For winter action we switch to the river Severn in Shropshire where, once again, the action is fast and furious. Matt reveals how to locate winter barbel, select the best conditions for success and how to use the very latest rigs and tackle to give you the best chance of catching consistently. No one presents “ How To” DVD's as well as Matt Hayes and, as always, theory is backed up by plenty of action. Aproximate running time 72 minutes.
