Off down to the Wye at Bredwardine on Sunday with my mate for three days chasing the barbel and chub. Can't wait. Last time I fished a river Noah came past on a boat.

A mate was down Ross 2 week back had plenty of Barbel in the 5 - 8 pound Bracket but no doubles Most on Halibut pellets.

Club match on Rookery Waters Magpie lake Sunday. Same lake Bettsfan struggled on on Tuesday. Last match a week ago saw me land one fish. So confidence not high despite a reasonable day on a club lake Thursday.

Might try a session on the local river this weekend, for some chub and roach. There are some barbel , but not had one yet. Not been out for 3 weeks due to work commitments, and a couple of jobs have cropped up for this weekend , so it will be a short evening session. Good luck to all those fishing.

Match, Pleasure, Speci or on the rivers chasing Barbel?
Just walked inlaws dog, washed / dried up, had breakfast,read and replied to a few posts, wife and girls.all asleep - going to take speci waggler rod, landing net, mat, bag of bits and some prawns and will sit on high bank fishing small slider for Perch and Tench until lunch time.
Kettle on for small flask and prawns jjst out of freezer (I find semi defrosted attracts big fish as scent wafts off).
Sun is out, birds are.singing and caffeine rushing through veins - going to sit, relax and enjoy the buzzards, kingfisher, deer, butterflies, damsels and any other nature that pops up!

Going Hampton Loade LB for a day on the stick now. Had a few beers with my brother for his birthday this afternoon so just sent my dad to the tackle shop for 4 pints of maggots and a pint of casters. Bagging time. :beer-toast1:

Returning to the Llangollen canal in the morning, and hoping that the boaters are all having a nice lie in. My target will be the resident roach, l am only taking hemp, tares and some elderberries. Fingers crossed the roach are hungry.

I rarely plan to fish at the weekends. I probably won't this weekend but if the weather is particularly nice, the sport particularly boring, or the neighbours especially noisy, I may yet venture out. It's hardly imperative that I get out, I've been out four days this week.

Had a shorter than usual session today as was too windy to fish properly for my ability. I know I normally moan about anything more than a slight breeze but this was something else was genuinely white horses on proper waves on the river! Float fishing was out of the question which was not ideal as I’d picked a stretch that’s not great for feeder in the hope that it was sheltered which it obviously wasn’t. Had a few fish but nothing like the numbers that I’ve had most of the summer and a smaller stamp as well which would have been alright on the float but not much fun on the feeder.

Better than no fishing though and its still only been a week since my best session of the season so can’t complain too much! Looks absolutely lovely weather on Monday typically though ?

Not me, I don't usually fish weekends, I leave that to those who can't or don't fish during the week. But I won't be fishing at all for a while as my usual fishery, Cefn Mably Lakes, is inside Caerphilly Borough boundary and they are locally locked down. :cursing::cursing2:
I fished there last Monday , I live in the Caerphilly Borough , it's right on the border I think the river counts as the border , there were people from Cardiff there .
