Chub caught from the Bristol River Avon at Swineford

Monster Chub!

Monday 9 July 2018

I've been having an amazing time on the Bristol River Avon since the 2018 closed season came to an end but this evening was probably the best session since I got into fishing for chub...

An Excellent Start To The 2018 River Season!

Saturday 16 June 2018

It's the 16th June and that means one thing: the rivers are open for fishing again! With the season closing in March with an amazing monster pike, I've been itching to get back on the Bristol River Avon to chase down some of it's excellent chub. The question is, would it be a repeat of last years heat-wave, snapped-rod, boats-playing-reggae, virtual-blank disaster?!

My 1st 'Monster' Pike of the 2017/18 Season

Well it's taken some time and I've had to wade through a lot of jacks but today I finally managed to bag my first 'monster' pike of the 2017/18 season!

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.
