18lb Pike caught from the Bristol River Avon at Swineford

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?!

The Bristol Avon Is Still Producing Amazing Chub!

Did I say that I'd had my last evening session on the Bristol Avon? Well, that was a slight fib...

It's been a month since I fished my favorite stretch on the River Avon at Saltford and with the evenings slowly closing in, I decided to head over for a last gasp session.

After a slow start, the river sessions on the Bristol Avon are really beginning to pick up now. This evening was no exception, with fish falling to luncheon meat from the 1st cast!

1st Decent River Session Of 2017!

Thursday 13 July 2017

The start of the river season for 2017 has been a bit of a mixed bag for me... A combo of snapped rods, heat waves and boats playing reggae has meant there hasn't really been a stand out session... Until this evening ;)

In a little under 4 hours I managed to bag 26 chub and 1 massive eel!
