The Holiday Inn Lake in Bristol

A New Venue - Carp Fishing At The Holiday Inn Lake

Monday 15 January 2018

I've not been carp fishing for ages now, the main winter focus being pike. But after my last incredibly muddy session on the Avon, I was craving something different... And as I've joined a new club with lakes closer to home the time was right for a water pig session!

1st Pike Session Of 2018 - And It's Not A Blank!

Friday 12 January 2018

Good golly it's been a grim end and start to the year... Snow, rain, a continuously flooded or muddy river and illness has all meant I've not been out fishing since mid December... But today the conditions actually looked pretty good so I headed out to the River Avon at Keynsham to see if the pike were in a hungry mood.

I got a surprise couple of hours this Saturday to go fishing so decided to head over to the Bristol River Avon to see if I could catch a pike or two.

Snow! It's bloody Snowing! Still gotta go fishing though right?! After suffering my 1st blank on the River Avon at Keynsham I was super keen to get out again, despite the conditions.

Waiting for the bite that never came...

Well I guess it was going to happen at some point... I suffered my 1st blank on the River Avon today!
