MARCH BARBEL FISHING ON THE RIVER WYE

 

MARCH BARBEL FISHING ON THE RIVER WYE

 

March was a great month for fishing on the river Wye

 

With lowish flows I was able before the end of the coarse fishing Season to try out the new Heavy Feeder Rods from Alcedo

 

Modularis Heavy Feeder comes in 4 versions a pair of 160g and 200g rated rods in 12 foot and 13 foot and a 4.5 m 15 foot 200g version

 

 

I got one of these in early to give it a go as to my mind it is ideal for the heavier flowing rapid areas on the Wye with all those rocks and weed

 

The rod lost me no feeders whatsoever but I did eventually weedle out this 9llb 8 oz supercharged barbel on pink maggot in only 2 foot of very fast flowing water

 

 

I dont think the low sun bright conditions and the clear water helped but it was well worth the weight

 

The rod had no problems whatsoever, very stiff bottom section with a nice curve in the tip

 

 

It comes in the 5 versions mentioned and are available here

 

They have 3 full carbon tips in 1 lb to 1 and a half pound test curve
