Irwell Barbel Quest Pt9

And so after a gap of 10 months, I decided to squander a few hours this evening on my futile search for a Barbel from the Irwell. I'd virtually given up on the idea of catching one from the Irwell until someone texted me whilst I was away on holiday that they'd taken one at 12lbs.
With renewed ardour I cast my pva bags and halibut pellets into a deep channel near The Cliff, tightened my lines and waited, and waited........... til it went dark when I packed up and went home.
Nice to know somethings in life don't change.
