"great fishery "

"I have visited this venue many times and had a great time on every occasion. While I have fished for all freshwater species I am having great fun on the river which on two consecutive occasions recently I have had really good sessions in differing conditions. In sunshine and warm temperatures I had a really busy 5 hour session with a variety of roach F1s. skimmers and reasonable bream. A great day! Yesterday I enjoyed even more. This time I employed match fishing tactics using my 9'6" Drennan Red Range carp feeder. The windy and overcast conditions forced me to switch spools to a heavier 7lb mainline, after which the bigger fish started to bite. The great thing about this venue for me is that it represents a good challenge to a course angler like me who has fished rivers and lakes all over the south of England and Ireland. I'm looking forward to going back and trying my specialist rods on this. it's just a pity that I can't stay longer than around 5 hours as I have to get back for my medical treatment, else I'm convinced I would have had a major bag here given the way the fish were starting to respond

I noticed yesterday that some anglers were using two rods on this river section. I thought that odd using tactics that work better on a lake, when the fish on offer are employing habits more commonly associated with those caught in drains or canals. Float fishing seems the obvious choice for this water particularly the bream, but being a feeder man and the fact that there a a lot of F1s in here, a feeder seems a better bet. The roach seemed to like my bait, as did the F1s, skimmers, and Bream. There are also some nice carp in here, which on previous visits I have netted , but not yesterday, and no tench which I didn't fish for given the conditions".
