Welcome to the homepage of the ABF – The Association of Barbel Fishers where you will find information on Barbel, Barbel fishing and a Barbel angling forum.
We at the ABF have formed our association with a clear view of what we want in the future. We are a natural evolution in specialist groups and will be run democratically with elected officials and will continue to evolve as required.
We want a group that values it’s members and becomes the place for friendships and shared experiences to develop, to bring enjoyment to our fishing.
Initially, membership of the ABF will require a small donation in order to prove identity; these donations will be used to finance the ABF running costs.
In the near future, the ABF, given your support and encouragement, will provide: -
- An Interactive blog and forum
- Members ‘Away Days’ forum to arrange fishing days on each other’s waters.
- Weekly News
- A regular on-line magazine as and when we grow
- Regular fundraising events for charities nominated by the membership.
Given good support and a firm financial base, in the medium and long term we plan to provide: -
- A robust membership base and a group managed by elected officials.
- Associate memberships of various barbel rivers around the whole country.
- Group ‘get-togethers’ and ‘fish-ins’ and other similar events.
- Support for barbel welfare in the form of habitat improvement working in conjunction with other appropriate parties.
One of the main aims of the Association of Barbel Fishers is that the membership contribute and have a say in the way it operates.
