Don't get hung up on rod choice. I fish for barbel with anything from a 1lb tc 10 foot cane rod to a Travel Avon to a 12 foot 2lb tc carbon rod. The fish don't know or care what you are using.

It all depends on the river too as Danny will tell you if your fishing winter an fast flowing rivers like the trent near me you'll be wanting something decent that can hold bottom an punch a decent fe

I’ve got a few different set ups, in all manner of TCs. I think the Korum Xcalibre in 2.2tc in 12ft coupled with the shimano ultegra 5500s(I upgraded with ice washers) would be a very good outfit for

Have you used the torrix? Or taking a leap of faith 😁 let me know if you decide to sell an I’ll check me piggy bank at time, no promises tho 😳😂

I’ve not used them but know someone who is an uber tackle tart and has multiple free spirit hi s barbel and specialist rods and once he tried the torrix’s he’s had a few sets built to replace the hi s’s and if he says they are better I’ll take his word for it

When you get in the the Albert give me a shout and I’ll take you round and show you some of the stretches . You’ll be struggling on Pendles stretches for barbel , I’ve never heard of one that far up but I have had them on hyndburns stretch behind the abbey . A fair few of the barbel you see on the ribble groups on Facebook are off the free stretch , don’t be put off going down the deeps because of the scare stories , I’ve never had a problem down there and neither have any of my mates

It doesn’t bother me either . As long as I can leave the car somewhere reasonably safe I’ll fish anywhere . 
The ribbles got some surprisingly good fish of all species . Aswell as big barbel there’s big chub , roach , pike and perch and it wouldn’t surprise me to see the dace record go on there , I’ve had some huge dace when I’ve been barbel fishing and they are not uncommon

Yea im same.ive caught perch before but only small as a kid and same with roach but never caught a chubb or dace so be good to hook into a few different fish 🐟
