  1. I live 15 minutes from the River Dronne (16210) and fish mainly for barbel and chub. My biggest carp to date is 27lb and I catch them purely because the tactics and baits are pretty much the same and not because I am targeting them. Lost an estimated 40lb fish a couple of weeks ago and have lost one or two monster cats. This is surprising because the Dronne where I fish it although deep in places is fairly narrow and very slow flowing. On baits, have any of you tried Frolic dog biscuits? I was put onto them by a French guy who told me that more big fish have been caught on them than anything else. To be fair most of my biggest were caught on them. My biggest barbel is 6lb and I have had many that size but I am convinced there are some bigger fish there. If the carp and cats grow to such sizes surely the barbel must as well.
