Barbel Quest Pt6 Going Hi Tech!

Whilst I've been sitting waiting for bites which havent materialised during my recent quest my mind has been working overtime as to how i can improve my chances.
Other than tipping a couple of thousand fish in the river, my options are limited to improving my rig so as to optomise my chances of hooking any fish which show an interest and of course location, location location.
To try to satisfy the first requirement i have this afternoon tied up my first ever hair rigs- with the help of Trigga (thanks).

Location wise, I decided to have one last try in my currently favoured swim before moving a couple of hundred yards downstream to some deeper water.

So i sat from 4pm til 8.30pm with nothing other than a couple of sharp raps. The quest continues!
