19702660 1407085285995039 7591770062563719513 oThis blog was actually my answer to another blog penned by my friend Nigel 'Fennel' Hudson of Fennel's Priory http://www.fennelspriory.com/ 
I have always enjoyed Fennel's writing style and the fact that he tackles some rather difficult subjects which will often create a bit of a stir. The blog I was answering was one about what defines a traditional angler.
Is it the tackle they use, the clothes they wear, or their state of mind and angling ethics?

Bob Brookes Questrami Big Barbel Adventures

15.04 a

15.01 aThe last time I wrote about my adventures with Questrami was back in the summer when the story was about catching 14 barbel, including 4 doubles, during a red hot sunny day in August this year. After then I continued to fish for barbel but moved to my autumn stretch, again on the middle Trent. 
The stretch I was concentrating on was an area from where I had caught my personal best barbel, a stunner of 15.02 in 2014, which I recaptured 12 months later at an ounce lighter. It is also where I saw an otter with an enormous barbel in its maw, which may well have been the same fish. Who knows, maybe the stretch was now devoid of barbel and not worth targeting! Undaunted, I decided to have a campaign there, again using Questrami boilies and paste wrap.
