Michael on the river Wye

Michael had wanted a day on the Wye trying to catch a barbel.

I had fished a couple of days previously and had struggled. We started in the swim where I had finished previously. There was supposed to be rain for most of the day however we had a couple of showers and it wasn’t too bad. There was a strong wind that I believe kept the clouds moving and helped in that respect. However these meant that there were plenty of leaves coming down the river.

We caught 1 barbel of 7lbs 15oz in the morning which is a slow start for sure.

7lbs 15oz barbel for Michael

We moved to another swim and caught a couple of nice chub 3lbs 10 and 3lbs 14oz however the barbel were not playing ball. I wasn’t alone nobody else had caught so it was going to be a difficult day.

I tried to get a couple of shots of the chub as they were nice well conditioned fish. Both times they leapt to freedom. This one shot is about all we got. We both found it hilariously funny.

Chub in flight

We moved for the 3rd time and still nothing came along. We fished the best 3 swims on the beat and only had one fish to show for all our efforts.  Today I was beaten by what I’m unsure I can’t put my finger on it.

Michael returning a barbel

Still it could be worst the river is up 4m today after all the rain of the past 2 days. A clear through was needed though.

A short evening session on the H.Avon

I had a short window of opportunity to fish for a couple of hrs the evening before I take Ross fishing the next day on the H.Avon. I put out some pellets in the same swim I had the 6lb 2oz and 5lbs 14oz the previous week. Sure enough after 20 mins or so the […]

Another 6lb plus chub including some others

September had been unusually warm and so was the start of October. Having said that we had a few frosts in the mornings which cooled a day or so down. Little or no rain fell during the period. The weed was dying back and so there was little of it to hold the flow back […]

On the river Wye with Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley

Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley and I decided a trip to the river Wye  should give us a great chance of a barbel or two. So we decided that a Tuesday just prior to me going way on the Thursday would suit just fine. I suggested that we meet at my place […]

September river low and clear

September has been very quite fishing on the Hampshire Avon. There has been insufficient rain and temperatures continued to be hit high for the most of the month. However the club and barbel  continued to feed. The weed growth had been static and if anything the swans were keeping it in check. I also managed […]

Bristol Avon magic (Turn on the volume)

Its 1982 and I join one of the best syndicates on the Bristol Avon. My heart has stayed here and I’ve been loyal. I’ve caught huge barbel to over 12lbs many roach to well over 2lbs. plus the 27lb+ pike. The reason I’ve stayed is that the guy’s have been working hard on river habitat […]

Back on the Bristol Avon

I hadn’t fished the BA for years in this area. I had an itch that needed scratching so I wandered around for a while looking to see if I could spot a barbel. I went to one of my favourite spots and found about 8 chub and a lone barbel of about 8lbs feeding on […]
