to be honest i fish the trent and this river stinks it hasnt been any good for along time so want to try a new river .I live near the M1 junction 28 (mansfield).So i want the nearest decent stretch of Severn i can fish on day ticket please.Wouldnt mind a chance of a Barbel on the stretch as well but i know im asking everything .
Thanks in advance for any replies it really helps .
P.s are the methods blockend feeder and how far out on the stretch if you tell me any .
theres a day ticket stretch called emstrey just outside shrewsbury and ive had some top days on there - barbel and big chub - heres some directions and pegs to go on - if you decide to go the best pegs are to your right from the car park head towards the style that says 'private water salmon fishing only' - go over the style and come back on yourself onto a large peg under the trees and cast right over to the trees on the far bank and get ready to battle some barbel!!!
Nutter, very restricted info on Emstrey i must say. The entrance has infact a sign saying private. Day tickets MUST be purchased before fishing. There are far more pegs holding Barbel and a few noted Bream swims to. I've found fishing into dark the best. Using a dropper to feed hemp I look for a steady comparative deep run preferably running under overhanging trees. Fish slightly down stream about 1 yes 1 rod length out. Bait, large chunks of meat. Most of my fish have come after dark and I suggest a baitrunner type reel is used the takes are SAVAGE Normal set up is 10lb bs line and an 8lb bs hook length. Just ask Trogg what the takes are like!!!!!!
Atcham about a mile down the road from Emstrey is also dy ticket.
Thanks for the info.Just one more thing where would i get the daytickets from its not pay a baliff on the bank then.And how popular are these pegs have i got to be there at 5 am in morning to get them .
