The Cadbury Angling Team Fish the River Wye. Summer Barbel and Chub Sport. Part One
The last couple of weeks have seen Dan, Toby and myself all enjoy fishing on the River Wye at Lower Lydbrook. Day one found Dan and I, accompanied by two friends, Dave and Roger, fishing the river at pretty much normal summer level. The day was a struggle to be honest and unusually slow. The barbel just didn't want to know and Dan, Dave and myself only managed a barbel each to pellet and boilie tactics. Roger enjoyed a good day though. He opted to fish the float and caught steadily all day. Bleak, dace and small chub were very obliging and a couple of larger chub showed up as well, the biggest fish weighing over 4lb. A day of mixed fortune. Day two and it was Toby's turn to give it a go! The three of us - Toby, Toby's friend James and I, enjoyed a much better day this time. To find out more about our day, take a look at Toby's blog post - The Cadbury Angling Team Fish the River Wye. Summer Barbel and Chub Sport. Part Two. Below, you can view a picture of my highlight from our day - a chub, just a couple of ounces shy of 5lb.
