Double Figure Barbel Challenge. Updated 26th September 2021

 

 I have decided to attempt to cross the length and breadth of the country in search of a double figure Barbel from 40 of our counties rivers where they are present, the list will include titans such as the Thames, Trent, Hants Avon and the Severn but then much lesser rivers will also be on the radar. 

 The list is taken from the BFW home page and I know a couple of those records aren't up to date but still registered as doubles, so that is fine with me as this challenge isn't to break any river records, it is simply to register a 10lb+ specimen off of each of the below rivers.

 Rivers target counter: 10 out of 40.
