Perch caught on a lure at Keynsham Lock

At Last, A Fish On A Lure!

Friday 18 January 2019

So... I had to go and do some boring stuff at B&Q today and as I was so close to Keynsham I thought I'd pop in to Premier Angling and pick up some more lures... and then seeing I still had the gear in the back of the car, it seemed rude not to drop in on the lock... Just to see if there were any perch or pike around...

Just after Christmas 2018 my mate Jim asked me if I'd be interested in him helping me catch a pike using lures in return for helping him to catch a pike using deadbaits...

Challenge accepted!

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...

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.
