The ABF Charity barbel challenge

North vs South

Starting on the 15th august 10 friends will embark on a quest to catch 3 double figure barbel and a barbel each from 10 rivers in 5 days

2 teams of 5, 1 from the north and 1 from the south will fish 4 rivers at the same time in an attempt to catch a barbel each including 3 doubles from each river.

The rivers will consist of some of the following, dove, derwent, trent, teme, severn, goyt, wavon, Kennet, colne, thames wye and nene.

Both teams will then meet on the river wye where working as a team they will attempt to catch 4 double figure barbel and a minimum of 2 barbel each.

The northern team will consist of Jerry Gleeson, Paul Floyd, Matt Marlow, Phil Smith and Julian Barnes the southern team will be Dave Chambers, Gary Lucas, Justin Beale, Steve Ward and Christophe Pelhate both teams will have a guest angler on each river.

It is hoped the angling community, family and friends will once again get behind the lads and help them raise a fantastic amount of money for the army benevolent fund by sponsoring the event as a whole or per barbel caught.
