Thank you all for your help and recommendations.
welcome. You are in my home town. I have fished the Bristol Avon around Chippenham for over 45 years. If you need any info ask away.
The chub and roach fishing on the Chippenham Club water is great.

Head towards the sections from the pitch and put golf course upstream. Look for the obvious chub swims. Most of the swims have safe pallets.
Use bread or meat, a straight lead and a feeder rod. When there is flow use bread punch and a stick or bolo float.

There are some good chub swims at Riverside Drive by the clump of trees, also the free stretch from the town weir downstream has some good chub, finding a fishable peg tho is hard work. Not recommended in the winter tho when the weir opens as water can rise 2/3ft in a few minutes.
