First 2 weeks of July 2022

Well due to illness plus the really hot weather I didn’t have too many angling adventures. Those that I did complete were pretty successful and I think there was only one blank.

There were plenty of chub and a couple of double figure barbel caught in what is turning out to be a very difficult opening few weeks as temperatures rose to over 40c in the UK for the very first time. Little rain has fallen in the southern part of the UK and the river Wye and Usk have stopped fishing a few times due to the high temperatures.

The Hampshire Avon chub are still really thin after the successful spawning this year. It’s going to take them some time to put the weight back on.

I’ve not seen the southern rivers so low before, and once the weed starts to die back then they will be on the bare bones. At present there is plenty of weed in the river which fills the volume of water. Some places the weed is such that it has increased the height of the river by 18 inches. Its a false impression though.

The water companies are issuing hosepipe bans whilst taking more water then ever from the Test and Itchen. They have just applied to take more. It’s utter madness!!

Whilst there is no appreciable rain fall the water authorities are still pumping out raw sewage into our rivers. It’s utter madness!!!

Here we are paying £100 billion for a railway system (HS2) to get people to offices they don’t use quicker by 20 minutes. Now that is madness!!

The money would be better spent on building more reservoirs or pumping water from the lake district down south. Any how it’s 33c outside and too hot for fishing and much else. We have 4 days of 35c plus coming which isn’t going to help matters.

Anyhow enjoy the fishing blog on my adventures early July 2022

Start of the river season 2022

As said Andy was late joining me for the glorious 16th June but would be down the following day. We had a great social at the Wood Green Wagon and Groom pub with Matt Tan and Steve Spillar as we had done the previous year. They said they had never witnessed so much weed up […]

April and May Tench fishing

Tench fishing got off to a reasonable start in April. Plenty of fish and a beauty of 9lbs 6oz. The weather patterns are defiantly changing and the spring are coming earlier. Our Tench Fishers National was cancelled due to carp spawning. And most of May the lake was closed due to this. Plus I had […]

March and the end of the river coarse season 2021 to 22

Well here we are right at the very end of the coarse river season. It’s been an eventful one in more ways then many others. Covid rules and regulations were still around throughout the season making life difficult. I managed to organise the Tench Fishers national fish-in on The Carp Societies Horseshoe lake happen with […]

January and February 2022 adventures

There was little to report for December as covid was rife again near Xmas plus I had a cold which slowed things down. Plus the river conditions on most of the rivers I fish were not inspiring me. They were in flood with plenty of rain in the systems. I hadn’t properly got my perch […]

Pollution issues

It’s refreshing though to fish the crystal clear waters of the Avon or Stour I wonder how much longer this might be the case. I’m no expert however with the water companies allowed to release untreated sewage into rivers at permissive levels and frequency cannot be helping particularly with low flow levels during summer levels. […]

August fishing with more large chub

The weather continued to be hot throughout August with some very hot conditions. The barbel wouldn’t come out to feed very often. You could locate the same fish in the same swim. Although it was unfair to target the same fish. I had found a great shoal of chub which enabled me to obtain some […]
