    Nomads? Or just repeat captures

    Kevin. My experience is that larger fish will often stay in a certain area for a lot of the time, disappearing for a few weeks or more but usually still coming back. And they often get caught when the conditions are less than perfect and smaller fish are not showing. This is especially true of...

    Peregrine GTx Barbel Rod 12' 2 Piece 1.75 tc

    Funny isnt it. I love my 12ft x 2lb Torrix and the fact that they are sensitive enough in the tip to show me indications that on many occasions meant that I left the bait in place for longer than planned. This has been especially useful on low density waters with good sized, cagey fish.. It...

    Have a go at fishing for grey mullet

    Andrew helped me catch my first Mullet. Great fun to fish with. Very knowledgeable. Needs a hearty breakfast before he wakes up properly though.

    None at all. But visited a pal on the Wye today and after 4 chub had 2 lber on pellet

    The Zander on the LS and WA probably outnumber the pike 200 to 1! I always have long nose pliers and metal glove just in case. Just a double hook pattern. No worries
  15. Graham Elliott


    To answer both questions. I use Partridge double hooks, Ideally size 4 or 5. Lip hooking heads or tail root. To 15lb soft strand. 15lb because I find 10lb has a tendency to kink too much. Couple of pointers. Use a lead much heavier than you think. I use 4oz on the Lower Severn, It will...

    Yes, small roach half. Bought on ebay packs of 10. But I'll be harvesting some bleak soon. I find them better than roach.

    No monster but hard earned on a very windy day on the Lower Severn.
