Hi Stalker

Most of the lads are in Elvington near York, on the annual charity fish-in so you get lots of replies after the weekend.

Oh Welcome!

allright stalker,

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!!!

enjoy

A49 Battlefield Roundabout, Shrops
Follow signs Leominster A49, Telford (A5)

A49 Junction with B5062
At roundabout take 2nd exit (signposted North Wales, Oswestry)

A5 Junction with A5
At roundabout take 2nd exit A5

B4380 Junction with A5064/B4380
at round about take 1st exit B4380

As you turn onto the B4380 heading towards Atcham you'll see a little gateway (white fence next to it) drive down there right to the bottom & turn left just before the very end shed.

You'll see the bright yellow LMS sign park in front of it & off you go.




cheers

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.
