  • Foxhills- Can i clear something up

    I have read now numerous posts on here suggesting that there are barbel in the top pool of foxhills fishery. I have fish here almost weekly for around 15 years and have never caught one, never seen one, never heard of any1 catching one or saw any1 catchin one. Im not saying there arent im just saying is this just idiots who cant tell the difference between a barbel and a carp or am i just missing something???

    would just like to add, a few of my ex workmates fished a match there a few yrs ago, and a friend had 2 small barbel on the peg to the left of the bridge entrance, 1 was around 1lb the other was about 2-2.5lb

        mate i was there, and i do know the difference between a carp and a barbel, just because you are yet to catch 1 out of there, it doesnt mean there are none in there

          Foxhills-Can I Clear something up ?......obviously you cant.....Jagman says he's seen them caught that should be good enough.

          And why should anyone who has trouble identifying fish, be classed as idiots. Might just be a case of experience.
          Plenty threads on here with photos asking for confirmation of species and not one from an idiot.
          Whatever you do, someone will always say "they knew you would"....!. :(:(:(

                              chill out guys all im saying is seeing is believing! hadnt heard of them being in there til bout a week ago so think i have every right to be dubious, not trying to slag any1 off but i was also told there are catfish in the small pool there so u can understand my cynicism. No offence intended
