One of Britains best known and respected barbel anglers, Steve Pope is leading three courses on the River Wye. Since catching his first barbel in 1963 from the River Lea, he has caught a huge number of fish, the best being 15.12. He was  instrumental in setting up the Barbel Society and has been chairman since 1996. A respected fishing guide for some years, many people have caught a personal best barbel on one of his guided days. A regular contributor to the angling press, he also writes a monthly diary for Fishing Magic website. Although living in an old cottage on the Welsh borders, he spends the winter months fishing in Australia. Sponsored by Dynamite Baits, Free Spirit and Peg One, he gives talks and slide shows around the country as well as television, radio and video commitments.
