Thats’s it for the season and another big chub

Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley and I were discussing where we were going to fish the previous night. I had to remind him that the second day of the season I suggested he should fish a swim that produced a big 6lb chub plus 3x5lbers. He did and he caught a 7lb 4oz chub. I said I wouldn’t make the same →

At last 7lbs 3oz chub from the Avon

Well having returned from the Maldives and a great experience it was time to get fishing again. The season was drifting towards a close and all I had to show was a couple of chub to 5lbs 10oz plus a smaller one. I had been fishing some short 2hr sessions and half day ones and blanking. It was 4 outings on the H. Avon →

More perch fishing and yet another 3lber

The rivers were still in flood and high. The Hampshire Avon has been in the fields for months now. Sure enough the quantities of rain was diminishing however there is so much ground water that any showers go straight into the river sending the levels up once more. So Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley and I travelled to →

Rivers still in flood and Andy and I visit the perch lake again. I’m lucky this time

With the rivers still in flood and the fishing being really difficult Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley and I decided to revisit the perch lake once more. Now Andy returned to his swim from his last visit where he caught those two 3lbers. I wanted to fish another swim still in deeper water. As I wandered around →

Perch Fishing as the rivers are in the fields still. 3lb perch for both Andy and me.

The H.Avon and Stour has been in flood now for weeks. The Avon is running clear but you need chest waders to get to it and the Stour floods with each shower we have, or so it seems. Andy (you should have been here yesterday) Cowley and I normally head off perch fishing. The normal locations were not producing many →

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
