Korum River Feeders on Test. Bristol Avon 18/11/2014


A quick visit to the upper Avon on Tuesday to perhaps catch a Barbel and to test the new Korum River Feeders ,
Met with mixed success while the river which happened to be flowing a touch too high proved a good testing for the river feeders I would be using ,
Fishing with a 12mm Halibut pellet and Sonu baits Hemp & Hali ground bait, produced a couple of small Chubb of around a 1lb plus a 2 lber, so not a blank and I will be back to re try the feeders in the near furture,

Autumn Round-up

It's been a busy month or so for me. I've fished local rivers, lakes, rocky marks along the Devon coast, the Bristol Channel from the sea wall at Severn Beach and the famous Shambles Bank from the deck of Colin Penny's boat, Flamer IV of Weymouth. The fishing has been good with a whole host of species caught. Roach, chub, dace, a new personal best grayling, perch, bream, tench and carp to low double figures have all kept me busy on the rivers and lakes. Sea fishing trips have produced codling, bass, plaice, wrasse, my first turbot and first tope. I've also seen black bream, tub gurnard and blonde ray caught. All good fun and very enjoyable.
