Bristol Avon and a 17lb skinny pike

I had just returned from the session on the Severn for 1 small chub. I thought that since the river is 15mins away I would try for a pike on a stretch I had not fished for 20 years. I arrived to see that the bankside had not been worn and it looked like nobody had been fishing it. The river here was a huge slack on my bank with the flow on the other bank. With the high water levels and weeks of floods the small fish move into the area for protection. Obviously the smaller fish being present means the pike move into the area. My setup was simple two rods with identical rigs. A float set slightly over depth and roach for dead baits.

I only had 3 hrs of time, but I thought that was enough. The river was not as clear as it could be which had me worrying. So I cast out and sat back. The baits were just on the bottom in 9ft of water. I had one bite and one fish.

It went 17lbs 10oz. But look at the head on that one. It must have been a big fish previously. Long and lean.

A couple chub from the H.Avon

I won’t bore you with all the outings on the H.Avon. There have been plenty of blanks and just a couple of chub. Nothing very large but at least it’s fish. One was caught on a maggot feeder session when the river was still in the fields but at 0.8m high. I hooked and landed […]

Bristol Avon and some dace and roach

The Bristol Avon is very much a spate river and comes up and down quickly. I fish a syndicate stretch around Great Somerford where there are some good roach and dace. Plus the odd good pike. I fished for an afternoon with the river fining down from a flood. I was using some maggots from […]

Perch fishing

The rivers have been in a serious flood since November. The H.Avon has been so high it almost reached it’s highest ever 1.36. The Stour has been in the same situation with water in the fields for weeks on ends. I was desperate to get out. Perch fishing was the answer. So I returned to […]

We couldn’t fish everyday as the weather blew up with huge waves coming onshore. Our friend Mustaffa was there again selling his gifts. We had a […]

A guiding day with Dennis on the Wye

Dennis had contacting me asking if I could help him catch a barbel. Now coming from Devon there are very few barbel down his way. Our window of opportunity was short as I don’t normally guide on the river Wye after October. We had so much rain over the previous couple of weeks the river […]

Another 6lb chub from the H.Avon

I had an opportunity to fish the H.Avon for a few hrs over the weekend. The river had been up and coloured but was now dropping back in height and clearing. There was still plenty of weed coming down in the flow which with other debris can be a pain. The weather though was warm […]
