Bristol Avon and a 17lb skinny pike

I had just returned from the session on the Severn for 1 small chub. I thought that since the river is 15mins away I would try for a pike on a stretch I had not fished for 20 years. I arrived to see that the bankside had not been worn and it looked like nobody had been fishing it. The →

A couple chub from the H.Avon

I won't bore you with all the outings on the H.Avon. There have been plenty of blanks and just a couple of chub. Nothing very large but at least it's fish. One was caught on a maggot feeder session when the river was still in the fields but at 0.8m high. I hooked and landed one chub of 5lbs 3oz →

Bristol Avon and some dace and roach

The Bristol Avon is very much a spate river and comes up and down quickly. I fish a syndicate stretch around Great Somerford where there are some good roach and dace. Plus the odd good pike. I fished for an afternoon with the river fining down from a flood. I was using some maggots from my last perch trip with →

Perch fishing

The rivers have been in a serious flood since November. The H.Avon has been so high it almost reached it's highest ever 1.36. The Stour has been in the same situation with water in the fields for weeks on ends. I was desperate to get out. Perch fishing was the answer. So I returned to a small fishery that used →

3 weeks in Cape Verde

This year we decided to spend 3 weeks in Boavista with our friends Wilf and Jo. We fished for sharks during the afternoon and bait fish in the morning. We couldn't fish everyday as the weather blew up with huge waves coming onshore. Our friend Mustaffa was there again selling his gifts. We had a wonderful time catching a good →

6lbs 15oz chub from the Hampshire Avon

It's been a very busy time at home with many jobs to complete before I head off to Cape Verde for 3 weeks holiday. It had rained cats and dogs for weeks now and the H.Avon river has been over it's banks and in the fields several times. You have needed waders to find the river. For me this doesn't →

A guiding day with Dennis on the Wye

Dennis had contacting me asking if I could help him catch a barbel. Now coming from Devon there are very few barbel down his way. Our window of opportunity was short as I don't normally guide on the river Wye after October. We had so much rain over the previous couple of weeks the river had been up 5m and →

Another 6lb chub from the H.Avon

I had an opportunity to fish the H.Avon for a few hrs over the weekend. The river had been up and coloured but was now dropping back in height and clearing. There was still plenty of weed coming down in the flow which with other debris can be a pain. The weather though was warm 16c with some sunshine. The →

Canadian sturgeon fishing on the Harrison and Fraser rivers

Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley and I had an urge to fish for sturgeon in British Columbia. Alan Thomas used to fish for them there and used to tell me of their great fighting qualities. So at the beginning of the year we booked a 6 day guided session through BC Sports Fishing Group that had been →

First session on the Severn and a 10lb plus barbel

I had been waiting throughout the summer for a flood to arrive on the river Severn. The summer had seen the rain arrive on the eastern side of England for a change and the west had been bereft of much of it. The Severn had been really low with fishing for barbel being difficult. Some larger fish were coming out after dark but that’s →

Another session on the river Wye

I have been trying some rigs on the river Wye in preparation of using them on the river Trent later in the year. This has been my second visit to the river recently. It’s a stretch just above Ross-on-Wye. I seldom fish it often, as the H.Avon is my preferred river of choice. The stretch does produce plenty of bigger barbel too. The →

River Wye barbel adventure

I had been guiding on the river Wye this this year. It's not been easy as the rainfall in Wales has been insignificant since late June. The river has had plenty of brown algae which has made fishing difficult. Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley has taken a few people on the Wye a couple of times and sure →

End of August and some fine chub and barbel

I'm trying to put a little more video on the blog as it does save time and I'm learning from a new piece of software I have purchased called FILMORA. It seems to do pretty much everything I want. So please enjoy a couple of video's I have been working on. https://youtu.be/4CmvIKRtTMA A nice chub for sure https://youtu.be/ukz-_ApKZbk I really hope you enjoyed those. →

The day after Keith’s four 5lb chub on the Stour. More big chub today

What a great day I had yesterday with Keith with him landing those 5lbers. I was back on the H.Avon looking at catching some chub. My previous visit was with Simon. His 7lbs 13oz chub has been the highlight of this season so far. It's a funny old game, that's 4x 7lb plus chub I've had a hand in others →

A day on the Dorset Stour with Keith Snelgrove and four 5lb chub

Keith phoned me sometime ago to enquired about a days fishing on the Dorset Stour trying to catch some of the large chub that are in the river. I had guided Keith before on the Bristol Avon for chub however we only managed to catch some big brown trout. We decided to arrange a midweek day to avoid the crowds. We →

7lbs 13oz chub for Simon

I had met Simon about 5 years ago now fishing a bream water near Oxford. He is a quiet chap but a very able angler with some respectable pb's. Early in the year I had wanted a change of scenery and fancied some time on the upper Thames fishing for chub. I really wanted a 6lb chub from there. Simon →

Chub rigs and 2 X 5lbers

I have been completing one or two video's on chub rigs. This one is for fishing area's that are more or less clear of weed. The hook length is about 5ft long so you don't want to many obstacles for it to hang up in. I've used this rig for about the last couple of seasons. It offers little resistance →
