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 →

6lb 10oz chub for me

I didn't fish Saturday as me and Mrs P had a lovely walk around the H.Avon and the New forest. We walked about 25000 steps which works out at about 12 miles. Lovely. Sunday was my last chance of fishing before heading back home. I had chatted to Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley about fishing a swim that →

Friday fishing with Andy on the H.Avon

Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley was down for the day. I was shopping for the morning and went to see him in the late afternoon. He was fishing a swim with a couple of chub moving up and down quickly. They would stop occasionally and feed. I would give him a running commentary. It was when I →

A short 2 hr session on the H.Avon

I had a small window of opportunity one evening for a spot of chub fishing. The evening was a warm summer like one with a slight breeze and some high clouds. I had travelled down to Hampshire for the week. I started off in the same swim where I had a few big chub. This time I was feeding with →

2 more big chub and another 6lber

July had just arrived and there were some more serious chub to be caught. Some fish had just spawned by the look of their condition around the vent and underbelly. I had thought about using maggots as bait as here didn't seem to be too many minnows around. So I returned to a swim where I hoped there would be few →
