The Barbel Society is running a two-day teach-in on the River Teme in July.

Open to all comers, the courses will cover rigs, baiting strategies, fish handling, location, watercraft and swim selection on the picture-postcard River Severn tributary noted for its exciting barbel sport. It’s £20 per head which covers two days of fishing and tutorials, with food and refreshments provided and a limit of 20 participants. For more information, email Fred Bonney at .
