River Kennet - Brimpton  
 
0730 - 1230
 
Cool, bright and breezy after a showery start. River low despite recent rains.
 
2 Chub: 5lb 1oz, 4lb 0oz. A dozen brownies to 2½lb. 1 bleak!
 
Lovely brace of chub caught from the same swim (the 2nd and bigger fish after resting it for 90 mins). Trout were a bit of a pain!

5-7.9.2017 Sea fishing at Swanage

Posted by The Flying Tench in The Flying Tench's Blog, 10 September 2017 · 0 views

My experience of sea fishing is limited, to say the least. The first fish I ever caught were in the sea, when I was about eight. My dad took my brother and me out in a rowing boat at Hastings for an hour. Hand lines and bait (lugworms) were supplied. From memory we only went out about 30 yards, but we had 27 small whiting and three dabs. It all seeme...

Latest River Session

Posted by AddictedToScopex in AddictedToScopex's Blog, 26 August 2016 · 0 views

Just thought I would post about my last time out. Been a very long time since I did so  :)
 
Myself and my brother decided to have a go at the usual stretch we go to when targeting the larger specimens. It is a stretch of the Ribble know for producing some very large fish.
 
We arrived at around 5pm and got our stuff sorted but I didnt rig...

Couldn't have blanked at a nicer place

River Kennet, Aldermaston Mill, Tuesday 8th  March 2016
 
The clue’s in the title, a blank of biblical proportions with not a single bite coming to the four anglers on the river. The background to this trip was curiosity, I’d read about Aldermaston Mill on the web and seen a few YouTube videos but most of the information I had was quite o...

16th July The plan Always good to have a backup plan!

Posted by Paulg in PaulG's Blog, 30 July 2015 · 360 views
Kennet, dace, minnow, cancer

The original plan was to go and spend the whole day at a new venue, after the large bream that inhabit the lake. However, as happens quite a lot in our family life at the moment, cunning plans sometimes fall at the first hurdle!
 
So, plan A fails when the hospital ring to say they have a slot for me to come in and be measured up for a dose of radio-...

Crashing back to reality

8th December - Berkshire Stillwater  
 
As I mentioned in the last installment, the rest of my bait had been spread around the productive area ready for a return as soon as possible. 
After managing to wangle the day off I planned my return, obviously full of expectation.  They'd had a free meal and a few days to get themselves comfortable....

Trout on the Kennet

Posted by viney in viney's Blog, 06 August 2013 · 709 views

5/8/13

I decided the rain we had yesterday should have put a bit of flow and colour into the river (very little as it happened) so I set off for a few hours on the Kennet.
Using typical gear for trout catching on the Kennet (quivertip, pellet hookbait and a small pva of small pellet) it wasn't long until the first showed up at around 1.5lb, it did a very...

VAC League Match 3-Newlands Hall, Moat Lake-July 7th

Posted by Maddog in Colin's Fishing Blog, 19 July 2013 · 731 views

A hot, sunny, still morning greeted us when arriving at the venue. I was grateful to draw the far side (from car park) of the lake as that side was fairly shaded by the trees behind the pegs and the trees and bushes between the pegs.  

My plan was to catch 100lb+ of carp from  the 5m line on paste and the margins on corn or bunches of dead maggots...

Chilly day for carp....

Posted by kirisute in Kirisute's Blog, 02 March 2013 · 892 views

But that didn't stop us!!Started at Reepham fishery just after 8:30.The fishery consists of a large square lake that is connected to a "wilder" lake via a channel. The "wild" lake makes for very pleasurable fishing with its many cut backs and reed beds. Plenty of features to fish to.My father, brother and I headed to that lake, getting into a swim large e...

River Test & LRA - 05-06/02/2011

Posted by Nicholas S in Nicholas S' Blog, 25 February 2011 · 6,885 views

After receiving the all clear from my girlfriend I set about organising a fishing weekend that I was really looking forward to. Saturday was to be spent on the Little River Avon (LRA) in search of Grayling and the icing on the cake was Sunday where I had been invited down to fish the hallowed waters of the Test. I would be trotting the main river (the las...

Sea Kayaking

Well I hope to spend more time in the boat tomorrow. Going to Caswell Bay, Gower. Can't wait to catch some kippers; although stability is giving me some concern! I don't mind falling in the drink but find getting back in scrapes my shins to the bone. Never mind Captin Ahab is my role model and nothing put him off.Smell ya later dudes

Saturday May 16th 2009. Will I ever learn?

Posted by OwdTrout in OwdTrout's Pursuit of Brown Spotty Fishisessess, 17 May 2009 · 5,391 views

Alan arrived first at the river and had three or four fish before I joined him. While he got a brew on I had a cast, taking one of the rivers natural population. It was too small to be one of the stockies being only 7 inches long. After refreshment we headed downstream. Soon I was thankful that I had remembered my waterproof. Today the rain was a good thi...
