July’s fishing adventures

July was an exciting month for me there were plenty of insects around and so my wildlife pond provided some wonderful video work. https://youtu.be/GHgbsTTIoqU The fishing was truly magnificent with some big chub and barbel caught. The summer was extremely hot at times 32c plus. The river Wye has been so disappointing this year with low flow and looking stale. Little is →

First few days on the Hampshire Avon with the new season 2021

I sit here writing this blog it's July 11th and England are playing Italy in the final of the Euro 2020 and I can't believe I've not written much about the start of the season. Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley has joined me for the first few days of the season. We normally visit the Dorset Stour →

Final session Tench fishing this year with 9lb tench and carp to 33lbs

Much as the previous post my recollection of exact details other then weights is lost in the past. I have had to rely on the video taken at the time. The only thing I can say is that it pays not to be complacent about swim knowledge and assumptions. As I fished an area that I had known for 12 →

Session number two and 3 for tench

Again the weather was still cold and I arrived on a Sunday evening to see what had been out. The fishery had been quiet for the weekend with little being caught. A few carp anglers had been catching a few tench on boilies during the night time. I was going to be using worms again. Everything was quiet during the →

Spring is here but not warm weather

The spring should bring warmer weather however not this. I normally start my tench fishing the very first week of April however this year the spring weather meant frost for most of the month. They said it was the most number of frost in April ever recorded certainly the coolest. I think our area was something like 15 nights of →

End of March and lockdown is relaxed a little

Well it's been a long winter and I've not fished since the first week of December. The local venues within 5 miles of me have been busy with walker dog walkers and anglers. So I have reluctantly stayed at home as the government insisted. Having said that I've seen plenty of anglers travelling long distances to go fishing. I despair →

I’m still alive

Well things have been very difficult on the fishing front. We have had a second lockdown but fishing was allowed even night fishing. We were supposed to be not travelling too far. However how far can we travel? There is no stipulation. WE WERE IN A TIER SYSTEM WITH EACH LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA ASIGNED A LEVEL well that didn't →

Another Covid 19 lockdown in November and 9 chub

Well it's not been great news as a national lockdown has been served again. Us fishermen are allowed to still go fishing but shouldn't travel too far. So I started off by going to the Salisbury area for a spot of dace fishing. I was using bread flake under a float. It was a difficult day to be sure and →

A couple of short afternoon sessions and another 7lb chub. 15th 6lb plus chub of the season

Having stayed in Fordingbridge for a week it gave me an opportunity to fish a few short afternoon sessions on the Hampshire Avon. The weather had been extremely rainy over the last week of October. Hardly a day passed without some heavy rain showers and on some occasions it would rain for a whole morning. The river had risen and →

An evening barbel fishing and 8 chub from the same swim

I decided that it was time for an impromptu barbel session on the H.Avon as we had had a significant amount of rain and the level was rising. I arrived at about 3pm and settled in a swim which I thought would give me the best opportunity. I could squeeze a couple of rods in the swim. I was just →

14th 6lb plus chub and a recapture.

A couple of days later I was returning once again and trotting a float through. This time the wind had eased and decided to complete some video work and try and get a bite, playing and landing a chub. I almost achieved this. I’m trying to edit it whilst I’m writing this. The same process of pulting and trotting occupied most →

5lbs 15oz but no cigar

The following evening I returned to the swim to see what else I could catch. The process of pulting and trotting was made. The wind had changed direction and had increased in speed making presentation more challenging. I only had 2 hrs fishing time. To make thing much worse it was supposed to be dry however I caught a heavy →

12th and 13th 6lb plus chub for the season. First 7lb H.Avon float fish chub!

I was soon heading down to Hampshire back on the Avon familiar territory. I expected to find the river still up a little as a few days earlier it had been in the fields. Not so the river had returned to it’s normal low October height. I decided it was time try out maggots on the float to see if →

The big chub that got away plus Jeremy on the river Wye

We have now moved into October and the rivers have had a good flush through as we had about 4 inches of rain over a couple of days. This was great news as the rivers were going stale as we had little rain. It was excellent for me personally as during lockdown I had the opportunity to dig a wildlife →

River Severn and not a bite

The floods had me looking at the river Severn as it normally fishes so well when in flood. It had been up 9ft and started to drop. I caught it at 4ft and thought it would fish really well. I arrived to see that few if any had been fishing it. I drove along the banks and found a couple →

Staycation and a 6lbs 6oz chub for Cliff

Me and Mrs P needed a holiday so off we went for a holiday to Cornwall and St Ives . Staycation. My sister was there for 2 weeks and we would see them for the second week. The previous August,  Robert and Carol ( my sister) got married in St Ives and what a weekend that was. This year we →

11th chub of 6lbs plus

To reach double figures of 6lb plus chub for the traveling angler is a great achievement. However I was still able to complete some short sessions on the river as Mrs P and me were staying close to the river. Holidays had been cancelled due to covid 19 and so we were staying in Fordingbridge more frequently. The 11th chub →

Barbel caught and lost plus more 6lb chub

The memory is not what it used to be and having not written down the numbers of chub caught I can say without doubt this has been the best start to my chub fishing ever. I do know the number of 6lbs plus chub and some recollection of some others of epic tales and disappointments. One of my biggest disappointments is →

8th and 9th chub over 6lbs for the season

Well there we go the river in late August the river looked mature which means that the weed had probably reached its peak for the year. I really fancied a swim where I’ve seen a couple of big chub plas a few rather large barbel.  Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley was down fishing too. He was after →

Very late putting blogs online Normal service is resumed.

Wow I’ve not posted too many blogs over the last couple of months however that needs to change. I have been fishing mostly on the H.Avon and some guiding on the D.Stour. Time has flown by. The last time I wrote on here I was on my 6th chub of 6lbs plus for the season. Since that time I have →

A couple more trips on the H.Avon and another 6lber

I had a couple more short trips on the Avon over the last week. One was with a friend of mine Paul. I've not fished with him for sometime. He is a member of the syndicate but seldom fishes for chub. His pb was a modest 4lbs 12oz from Throop. Well at the end of our days angling we had →
