Good to see you posting again Andy, I wondered where you'd got to!


Hi Andy, fishing has taken a back seat this year unfortunately, it's been a busy year with my family, house and work. Couldn't miss a trip to Timsbury though.

Thought I would bump this a bit, could really do with a few more names guy`s, I know Tony pays for the beat in advance and as it stands either the price per person will almost double or Tony will go bankrupt :rolleyes:

Another bump as it's not too far away, could this thread be pinned?

I'm happy for the price to be adjusted if we don't fill the 20 spots.

For those who haven't been before I was lucky enough to get a cancellation spot last year and despite the weather being cr@p it was a brilliant day and a wonderful location, I wouldn't want to miss the chance this year. It's got everything you'd want, fast trotting water, a gentler paced carrier and a big stretch of the Test where you can trot or pitch up under a brolly if you want. I believe you can fly fish too so my travel rod will be in the car.

A couple of photos I'd forgotten about;

A tiny section of the fast carrier

A decent Perch from the slow carrier. This was a bonus as I was walking back to the hut having been blown into oblivion by the strong winds, I just fancied a last dapple to use up maggots. If there's one there's others so lobs will be on the menu as well this year

You're making me salivate now!

(Every time I close my eyes I see a stick-float dip beneath the ruffled water, then the rod tip pulls around, and the pin begins to pull round against the pressure of my forefinger

Oh! and the smell of bacon-butties drifing across the dewed field calling me back to Lyn's van for second helpings, not to mention the smoke drifting across from Tony's Kelly kettle)

ok ,as a way of helping alieviate any shortfall from places being taken up ,i'll sort of sponsor the trip via sales of floats ,i have some crowquill avons in production ,if anyone wants any .all are between 6-8 BB and between 4-6" and will come with 4 float rubbers a fixed .

Posted Image

in three body shapes ,some painted others have several clear laquor coats & all tips are painted with florescent colours ,red ,yellow and orange .the tips can be matt black if needed


Posted Image

i`ve the whippings too do in fine black silk and sealing coat of lacquer and a touch of final banding .should take about a week or so too finish them & float rubbers too fit .there should be plenty of each to go around


Posted Image

all gone now ,but i'll have see about making some more maybe a smaller size .

Posted Image

(15) 5 of each colour red ,orange,yellow. ( the bottom half of the body can be green if required )

Posted Image

(18) 6 of each colour red ,yelow ,orange

Posted Image

5 of these all blacks


i might just have time too make some smaller floats suitable for the carriers ,if i get kracking. or modify the body colours etc of the above if needed ,i'll add pictures of any more floats if i do any .might also consider any special requests .but i only work on these after work and weekends .


all are 2.50 each ,too be payed on the day ( & available too tony if its needed :thumbs: ) if we've a full take up of places ;then i guess my pocket will do ;) .please Pm any orders too save posting on this thread .

  • Interests:Fishing and other sports mostly. My river fishing obsession started with fishing for Barbel on the Bristol Avon, with limited sucess, but its not an easy river! Still love general course fishing and summer mornings catching Tench. Have spent the last 4 years concentrating on River Fishing, and feel I'm just starting to get to grips with it! <br /><br />If you ever fancy a day on the Bristol Avon, let me know and I'd be happy to arrange!

If you are still looking for more people to come along, I'd love to be included.

Love the look of the floats chavender, nothing better than watching a crow quillgently wind its way downstream, or into a tree in some cases!

Would love to come along as well but i would only be able to stay up till midday or thereabouts so cannot really justify 18 for four hours fishing so will have to decline... :(
