I move ino my new house on the 23rd which is just a short walk from the banks of the wyre. My syretch has a lot of big chub i believe. Will be applying for my club ticket this week. My first ever river campaign and im so excited. Expect plenty of questions from me over the next few months. Im an experienced stillwater angler but a river novice.

I look forward to all the catch reports again this year, as well as a greater variety of youtube videos to watch again. (y)

I just hope its even nearly as good as last season. Had so much time to fish last year that by the law of averages more sessions than usual meant more good sessions than usual plus it let me get into more of a rhythm with it so I fished better and conditions were good so was my best season to date. If I can get as many good sessions from probably half as many sessions overall this year I’ll be well happy!

I hope to have a good season but basically this year will be all about variety for me... match type tactics with maggots, casters.... specialist type tactics with pellets and dumbells... but most significantly for me, big baits fished on the float... meat and bread.

i remember fondly thirty plus years ago my friend and i waiting eagerly for the 16th ,we used to fish a stretch of the great ouse between great barford and bedford.The run up to the opening day of the season was a time to repair the fishing platforms and check out our favourite spots the excitment building as we read the fishing magazines and discussed new tactics our main quarry being the chub.Great times for us.
