Trout fishing at Dever Springs

Once a year I normally have a day fishing on the Dever Springs Fishery. It stocks with extremely large brown trout and a good average size of rainbows. I was to fishing with Ross and Mike a couple of guys I had fished with before. Now I don't normally have the equipment for these fisheries so I had to borrow →

Perch fishing blank

The river season ended with a blank so hardly ideal, however I've enough big fish to satisfy my mind. it's this time of year where I start to think about perch fishing on some of the lakes around me. Normally these lakes are deep and very large large and the perch are late in spawning. Once the river season closes I →

Last day of the season and blanking

The wind and rain lashed down all morning. I fished so many swims from all around the fishery drawing a complete blank. The fishery was empty of anglers probably due to the river and weather conditions. It wasn't the best of sessions for both Andy and I. Still what a season I have had. Some highs and lows but enjoyed every →

Another 6lb 10oz chub

I was delighted at catching no 17 chub over 6lbs the previous day. I reflected on the fishing and decided to start very early today. The forecast was for very strong winds of 60mph and heavy rain from early morning. I was on the river at 7am thinkng that I would get a small window of opportunity on the river →

Monday 11th March and another 6lb chub

After returning to the river after going home for the weekend saw it dropping in height and colour. I was going to fish a swim that has been kind to me over the years. I had been fishing an area at the top of the swim where there was some slack water. I was using the feeder and short hooklink →

Another H.Avon double the very next day

Well after that huge barbel the previous day you could forgive me for fishing the same swim. I arrived at opening hour and moved straight to the swim. Using the same boilie and pva bag approach in the slightly deeper part of the swim. The river hadn't moved much in height and the colour had not improved. I cast out →

14lbs 13oz barbel 6th March

I had planned to fish 6th to 8th March with Andy ( you should have been here yesterday) Cowley. Andy couldn't make it early neither did I in the end. I had a few chores to resolve before I could set off on the 1hr 40 min journey time. Much rain had fallen over the previous day and the river →

David has been given the green light to join the Somerley Estate syndicate

I had guided David last summer on the Dorset Stour where he so much enjoyed the day. David phoned me to say that he was being given the chance to join Somerley fishing syndicate. I was so delighted for him as he is a true gent and loves and cherishes the days he gets a chance to fish. With this →

Anglers mail feature

Some time ago now I was asked by Duncan Charman to help him with a feature on grayling fishing on the river Itchen. I don't normally like these things as you expose venues and swims to others. It's the other anglers who fish the venues I feel for. Lots of publicity which is not welcome from their perspective. Anyhow this →

On the Thames with Andrea

Well where has the year gone. I have just returned from a couple of weeks in Mexico. The weather was super with plenty of sun and a great breeze. The only negative was that the wind dislodged plenty of weed from the off shore reef. It was unpleasant to swim in the sea and impossible to wet a line. So →

Another session on the Thames again.

So after a couple of days not fishing it was time to get on the Thames again. To be frank I'm disappointed with the size of the chub that I'm catching. On the H.Avon you would expect to land a 6lber amongst a few others. It's just me having the 5lbers and Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley →

Perch and chub fishing and trouble with an otter

Well after a difficult time on the H.Avon on my last visit mainly through minnows decimating all the maggots that I could throw at them. Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley and I decided on a perch trip to a commercial. We would ask mutual friend Ross along too. We arrived at first light to find a crisp frost on →

Hampshire Avon for a couple of days

I hadn't fished the Avon for a while and it was time to try again. Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley would be fishing with me. The weather had been dry with little rain and the river level had been dropping. I had it in the back of my mind about fishing a swim where I had 2 →

River Thames first cast again for quite sometime.

I had been thinking of fishing the Thames for chub for a couple of years now. The upper river had been decimated by otters a good few years ago but now things were starting to improve again. I'm unsure of the reason why the river has rebounded. Perhaps the otter numbers has decreased, maybe the crayfish, and there are plenty →

End of 2018 and the beginning 2019 and 2 6lb chub

Well that was Christmas over for another year. I’m not complaining as there is so much effort going into the preparation and executing all the fun and food. We had a great one with family. We decided to head to Fordingbridge for about one week. My aim was to complete lots of work on the house and find a few hrs →

Early Dec and two 6lb chub again

It was time to travel down to the H.Avon once more to fish for chub. The river had risen over the previous week and plenty of rain had fallen. Some good chub were caught during that period plus a few 7lbers. Unfortunately I was unable to get onto the river during this period. I was to have 2 days on the river →

Another 6lb plus chub from the H.Avon

Well the two weeks holiday was over in a flash. We left Boavista with the temperature at 28c and returned to Birmingham at a rather chilly 2c. We had one day at home then Mrs. P and I headed down to Hampshire for the weekend. I had a couple of small windows of opportunity to try my luck for the chub. →

Cape Verde Nov 2018

Our annual trip to Boavista one of the islands of Cape Verde for a holiday came along so fast. Mrs P and I had arranged to meet Viktoria and Marko from Sweden there for some fishing and R&R. We had met them a few years ago and kept in touch since. We were also met with Jo and Wilf whom →

Another 6lb chub and no. 11 for the season

I was down for a few days staying in Fordingbridge.  Family were staying for a while and fishing time was limited. I had one short session after a few frosts hoping the minnows were now not too active. Sure enough the minnows were not feeding together with the chub too. I blanked after a few hours. I was using a feeder with →

October madness 3 6lb chub in two days

Autumn was in full swing as I drove down to Hampshire for a couple days fishing. Also I needed to attend the naughty boys speeding school event in Southampton. The colours were spectacular as the leaves on the trees were reaching the end of their lives and were just weeks or days away from detaching themselves from the parent tree. After →

Michael on the river Wye

Michael had wanted a day on the Wye trying to catch a barbel. I had fished a couple of days previously and had struggled. We started in the swim where I had finished previously. There was supposed to be rain for most of the day however we had a couple of showers and it wasn't too bad. There was a strong →

Trevor and Ashley On the Wye

Ashley and Trevor wanted a guiding day on the Wye trying for the barbel and chub. They were there for the week. The river had been low and clear for a while and conditions were far from good. We fish one area to begin and had a barbel of about 8lbs. The conditions though were against us. We moved swims and here →

A day on the H.Avon with Ross

I've known Ross for a long time now having guided him for barbel chub and perch. He is a good fly fisherman too having seen him fish Dever Springs earlier in the year for trout. I had asked him to fish the H.Avon with me for a day to see if we could catch him one of the enormous chub or →

A short evening session on the H.Avon

I had a short window of opportunity to fish for a couple of hrs the evening before I take Ross fishing the next day on the H.Avon. I put out some pellets in the same swim I had the 6lb 2oz and 5lbs 14oz the previous week. Sure enough after 20 mins or so the chub and a couple of barbel →
