Is the Stew Pony pub still open mate been a few years since I been in there, family used to own some land up the road from there in the dip at prestwood.Know the Anchor well mate! So far I've only fished the canal and had my first canal Chub from there. I was a canal angler with my Junior club too. Years of trying for a Chub on the canal on a caster line on the far bank and never had anything even on the renowned stretches like Swindon and Womborne. Never saw a Chub get caught in Junior matches. Although I know they are there, especially now. So that's one place I'll be going after lockdown, the Staffs/Worcs canal for Chub. And of course the Stour.
Also there is a pool opposite the island pool pub, used to be private but I walked round a few times supposed to be some proper tench in there apparently
