    Hi Nav,

    I thought the Barbel was something we have over here and you called it something different. That is not like anything we have over here. What is that hanging down at the front of its mouth. Do that use that to dug or steer up the bottom for food?

    JP: Good one, that was funny! If I ever get you over here to go fishing with me you will have to bring a nice bottle of wine that we can share around the campfire!

    I've had many a great meal in France centered around a barbel for the main course. And Larry, as far as a great bottle of French wine around a campfire, that doesn't compute - but a good bottle of Kentucky Bourbon would sure fill the need
    On the whole, I'd rather be in Wyoming . . .

    Here is a small stream in the french Pyrénées.

    4 barbels spotted (not easy, but they're here) :



    A heavy nymph to reach the bottom quickly, and it starts :


    A surrending barbel :






    PS : where should I post some other fishing reports ??

    nav: That is a nice looking stream and the photos were great. Thanks for sharing.
    I put my fishing reports in the Rocky Mountain forum because that is where I live but they don't have something specific for you so I guess you could put your reports in the Cold Water Fly Fishing Forum, maybe Frank will jump in here with a better idea!

    Nav welcome to the forum! You'll fit right in here! Great pics.

    I think a good place for your trip reports would be the General Forum- it gets the most "eyeballs" and I'm sure other folks would love to see them--- It's always great to see fishing from far away places and I'm sure all our folks would enjoy seeing the pics of your waters, the flies you use ...... and the fish you catch.

    Again welcome to the forum. Looking forward to your posts.

    Welcome to the site... Your barbels look similar to the various species of sucker we have here, and they can be tough to catch and when you do hook one you do get a fight.

    Hi nav,

    Under the General Fly Fishing Discussion heading there are two forums you can use. The Coldwater Fishing Forum or the Warmwater Fishing Forum. Use the one that is appropriate for your fishing conditions.
