River Severn and a session on the Bristol Avon

A couple of trips one to the lower Severn after the large barbel that swim there. It’s the very first time I had dipped a line in the river. I had joined a syndicate there to fish during the late autumn and winter when the H.Avon is in flood.

The lower Severn

My first visit is just a look and see. I like very much what I see the banks are steep however the water was low with little flow. I was using some West Country Bait boilies and some chopped ones in a PVA bag.

I had loads of bites but these are from eels. A chap Laurence fished just upstream from me and caught a nice looking 10lbs 2oz barbel.

Me a blank but I’m looking forward to fishing it later in the year.

The second trip was to show Gareth a stretch of the Bristol Avon that I fish and he is interested in joining.

We tried a selection of the river swims and had chub feeding in most. It was great fun fishing floating crust. The flow on the river was very slow and tricking the chub was difficult. However out of 5 takes Gareth managed to land 3 of them.

I said to him that a 4lber would be a good fish.

His first one was about 2lbs followed by a couple of missed fish and one where the line parted for no reason.

We arrived at the weir pool where we had a couple of takes.

The first fish was about 3lbs.

3lbs average size

This was followed by a much better fish that tore off under a tree branch. We managed to extract it. What a fish it was of exactly 4lbs and a very good one for that part of the river.

4lb chub

I will take him to the venue once again when there is more water in the river.

Hampshire Avon some great 6lb chub

I have had little time for writing up my blogs or posts. Life has been hectic with guiding and fishing. I have been fortunate to be able to fish the H.Avon a good few times too. I have been fishing with Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley for most of the time and […]

Harry and Geoff fish the river Wye for the very first time.

Harry and Dad Geoff I met Harry about 3 years ago now working on a building project and we soon found out we had a common interest for angling. I gave him my business card and said if he wanted a guiding session the he could always contact me. Times goes on and out of […]

Bill and Dan fishing the river Wye again

I have guided Bill and Dan before and they are a pleasure to fish with. Dan and his brother had bought his Dad Bill a days guiding with me for a fathers day present. The choice was the river Wye. We met early in the morning ready to find the large barbel that frequent. The […]

Andrea and Giovanni (Gi Gi) barbel fishing on the river Wye

Fishing the river Wye can lead you to become complacent with the fish and particularly the barbel. However others far and wide return to fish it. Andrea and I had been friends for it must be 4 years now. He lives in Italy and travels the world with his job. Whenever he is in the […]

A few more visits to the H.Avon in less than ideal conditions hot hot hot.

The H.Avon has been calling for me to chase the chub and barbel. I fished with Andy and we both blanked, not uncommon that. I spent 5 hrs walking before wetting a line. Andy’s knees have been playing up so he can’t do all the walking. I’m surprised he hasn’t asked me to carry his […]

Tench Fishers teach-in at Summer Pit with Farnham AS

I’m not going to start to explain the reasons behind holding a Tench Fishers teach-in on the summer pit at Yateley in conjunction with Farnham Angling Society. The main reason was down to Bazz trying to sort out a venue for the Tench Fishers to fish and it all began to take shape with Ian […]

Hampshire Avon for a couple of short sessions in very hot conditions

Had a couple of short session on the H.Avon recently. I have been spending more time looking and feeding the barbel rather than fishing. The river has been painfully low this year and it’s only the prolific weed growth that has kept flow back. Without this we would be in dire trouble for sure. I […]

Ross and Mike

I had guided Mike and Ross a good few times over the years and I really enjoy their company. Both are good anglers fishing for most species although recently they had a few days fly fishing on the Wyle, Avon and Nadder. Ross had just returned from Scotland fishing for salmon. We were now off […]

Bill, Andy and Graham go on a Wye adventure

Bill and Andy Graham a pall of mine asked if I could guide two of his mates on the Wye catching barbel. Also would it be possible for him to tag along and make it a bit of a social. So the three of us met at 7am on the banks of the beautiful river. […]
