What are your targets for the new season?

Some (maybe unrealistic) targets for 21/22.

A barbel from the upper, upper Thames. One or two more from lower down the river.

A big Thames chub.

Some big stillwater roach on bait and perch/pike on flies.

A return to saltwater fly fishing, but god knows when………

I can't risk my usual fishing alone and in darkness. I have knee replacement surgery scheduled soon, and my (wishful thinking) target is to have my first session of this season in October/November.

At least I won't blank before then :D

To diversify from just barbel fishing (perhaps :eek:)

I do fancy some bass fishing and going for big perch (as well as barbel fishing, plus some chub winter fishing).

This year A big Nene double …….. a barbel from the Ivel there’s still a couple about…….and a double figure pike ….last season was pretty poor apart from a 14.14 from the tidal Trent ( do Trent fish count 😂😂)

Thankfully the start of the season is just round the corner so would be good to see some targets and goals that you’re aiming for this year!

I’ve got a few on the wish list for the season so I’ll get it started -

PB Chub so anything over 6.13

A Thames PRB, a 12lb plus fish would do it for me

And my main target and focus for the season is a Kennet 16lb plus fish, I know they’re still there, somewhere!

Good luck all and tight lines.
I didn't get the PB chub (best a 6.4) blew out completely on the Kennet and didn't bother fishing it after August but I did up my Thames PB a few times to 13.8.

But on a series note , I would like to beat my PB of 13lb 6oz,only managed a 9lb fish last season.
