Great carp action on floating baits

After my assaults on the tench or the non action in Kent it was time to obtain a bend in the rod. Now Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley had a right result earlier in the week. The sun had come out and he was off to fish a local water which contains some good size carp. He →

First couple of weeks Tench Fishing and Andy’s 60th birthday weekend

The winter has continued right into April with cold nights and day for that fact. I'm fishing some lakes in Kent this year. Not easy and a fair amount of travelling to be done from home. There are some good tench in these lakes and I'm hoping to perhaps get a double this year. I'm trying several types of baits to →

Dever Springs with Steve and Ross

I had given Steve a days fishing on Dever Springs for a 60th birthday present. It was difficult organising a day to link up as we both lost parents close to each other and I guess we were both busy. I arranged a date in March as normally there are still a few large brown trout in spring lake. Well that →

The last two days of the 2017 -18 river season

The time this year seems to have flown by. With Mum being ill and eventually passing away left me with plenty to do. I know it not an excuse however sometimes I just wasn’t interested in fishing. Then I think you get out of the habit and before you know it, it’s March. That’s the feeling I defiantly had as Andy →

Early March and the end is in sight.

Last year I decided to go on holiday for the last 2 weeks of the season and regretted it as most of my mates caught some special fish. The weather warmed up and they came on the feed. So this season I wasn’t going to be fooled. Well that’s what I thought. Mark Woodage (Woody) has been fishing the Avon a →

Late February on the H.Avon

The weather had been up and down temperature wise for early February. Not for Mrs. P and me. Normally at this time of year we head to the Caribbean for some winter sun for two weeks. This year we headed to Jamaica. Now we were told that there was a state of emergency announced a couple of weeks before our →

Perch fishing

We had plenty of the rain over the weekend and Andy  (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley and I decided to try for some perch on a commercial. We arrived to find one other angler there and he headed off to fish for perch. Andy and I decided to face the wind and fish next to each other. The bait →

A few days later in Jan 2018

I had been able to fish again on the Friday and headed down the Avon valley to see if I could temp a chub or two. My aim with the river being the same height was to fish the same swim. Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley was going to fish too. I arrived at 7.15 with a →

Early January 2018

Well the festive season was now and truly over other than the New Year. I had been staying in the Avon valley from 28th to 6th Jan. The weather was far from being kind to me strong winds rain and cold. No problem I thought there is plenty of time. Mrs P and me had a great New Year eve →

December 2017 fishing

December started off really cold with north winds blowing and snow showers. The river remained so low and clear making fishing difficult for chub. Barbel fishing pretty much on the back burner for the first couple of weeks. I fished the H Avon for a few days and it was tough going. I wasn't alone in this as others were →

Hampshire Avon sessions and another 6lb chub

Well my cold had been still around and was in the 3rd week. I was though feeling well enough to tread the banks of the river. I have to say also the death of my Mum in September had the fishing put on the back burner. The appetite just wasn't there. So with my mojo returning  it was time to get →

Dorset Frome grayling fishing, Tench Fishers AGM and Iain McDonalds talk

After returning from Cape Verde and holiday I caught a lovely dose of cold on the plane me thinks. This laid me low for a couple of weeks. I did manage a few visits to the river. Neil Maidment kindly invited me to fish the river Frome in Dorset. I was going to try and catch a few grayling from this →

First double for me from the Wye

I fished with Andy again a couple of days after Chew on the river Wye. The river was low and clear making it difficult again. I put Andy into the swim that normally produces a few fish whilst I wandered down to a swim I had not fished for a while. Soon Andy was into a nice barbel which he thought →

Chew Valley piking and a 16lbs 12oz trout

My annual trip with Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley to Chew was disappointing for me. However Andy was over joyed at landing what is probably the biggest trout we have seen from the lake. it went 16lbs 12oz . Andy let a few expletives go when he saw it jump for the first time. All around us people →

Andy and Stu barbel fish the river Wye

Now going back about 4 years ago I guided Andy on the river with his mate Paul and he caught a 10lb barbel. The river was in flood at that time in mid summer so almost perfect conditions. This time around the river was low and clear and not looking too good. We were to fish for 2 days as we →

Scott and Dad Paul fishing the river Wye

Sadly my dear Mum passed away towards the end of September and so fishing was put onto the back burner for a while. What I did though was to honor my clients who had booked with me. My appetite for fishing myself just wasn't there. Paul had caught a few barbel before however his Dad Paul had never caught one. So →

Paul and Geoff on the river Wye and a 11lb barbel

Normally I guide Geoff Paul and Jeff barbel fishing on the river Wye also some tench fishing. This time there was to be only two as sadly Jeff had passed away at a young age. I was so sorry to hear about this. We met for a 2 days session on a very moody Wye. The beginning  of the week with →

David and Mike on the river Wye

I had guided Dave before on numerous occasions. Tench, pike, barbel and chub. This time he wanted to have a session with Mike one of his friends. Mike is a keen sea fisherman and had never caught a barbel before. Dave wanted to give Mike a special day as within the week Mike was going off to live in Australia. So we →

Fishing with Roger and Colin on the river Wye

I had guided Roger and Colin a few times before and in May they had caught some impressive tench from Horsehoe lake. They always like a session on the river Wye for barbel. The only problem for them is because of their busy life we need to book months in advance so can never tell what the river conditions would →

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. My first visit is just a look and see. I like very →

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 in August Mark Woodage decided →

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 the blue he contacts me, or his →

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 river has been low and clear →
