  • 2015 Barbel Season
    on Dec 12, 2015 in Barbel Monkmoor Severn Sydney Avenue
    I'm fortunate to live in Shrewsbury with the river all around. It really has become part of my life since I moved here 10 years ago. I believe in the close season as I enjoy taking advantage of the still waters but come June I'm just gagging to get o...
  • The Wild Wild West!
    on Jul 16, 2015 in Carp
    I'm no big Carp angler, I generally prefer the river, but now were well into Spring my attention focuses on still water. There's a lot of unfavourable opinion about Carp fishing from the river fraternity, some of it is justified, it seems more about...
  • Has Spring Sprung?
    on Feb 23, 2015 in Bream Monkmoor Severn
    Close season on the river is fast approaching and I intend to get as much fishing in as possible. It's still cold but there are occasional signs of spring. Warm fronts keep moving in and bring rain, pushing up the river a little with nice 'bubbles' o...
  • In Pursuit of Pike
    on Jan 9, 2015 in Monkmoor Pike Severn
    And so it's Pike Season, that time of the year I sit freezing my balls off on a dark river bank wondering why I ever got involved in this waste of time. To top it all, I usually end up covered in the innards of whatever stinking, half rotten bait tha...
  • Cold November Rain
    on Nov 3, 2014 in Barbel Monkmoor Severn
    Rarely do I have much to write about in November, so this post is something of a bonus. The water temperature has remained high as has the water level, not too high, just enough to keep the colour. Perfect Barbel conditions! My previous session surpa...
  • Target Achieved!
    on Oct 27, 2014 in Barbel Monkmoor Severn
    A long time ago, having just rekindled my interest in angling, I set myself the target of catching a Barbel from my local river. With that in the bag the target quickly changed to a double figure Barbel and little did I realise what a challenge that...
  • Barbel Tactics Explained
    on Sep 11, 2014 in Barbel Severn
    I've been almost exclusively in pursuit of Barbel for the last three months. In that time I've landed 42 fish mainly from short evening sessions. For a change, and for my own reference I thought I'd write a blog entry about the tackle and tactics I'v...
  • Back On The Feed
    on Aug 27, 2014 in Barbel Severn
    The season started well this year with Barbel coming from all sections of the river in Shropshire. But it wasn't long before they went off the feed and the hot dry weather combined with full moon made for stale conditions. I blanked a few times befor...
  • Moments of Clarity
    on Aug 4, 2014 in Apley Pool Carp Mousecroft
    My normal angling routine has now been thrown completely into chaos and any precious time to fish has been consumed with moving house. Having not fished for a couple of weeks and the stress building I needed a few hours to relax. Having not been on t...
  • Chub
    on Jul 11, 2014 in Barbel Severn
    The frenzy of the start of the season has died down a bit and I've managed to get a little more sleep! The Barbel too have calmed down, the river having continued to drop over the last couple of weeks has become a little stale. Low oxygen levels and...
