Let's see your river catches 2019

Recommended Posts


Impressive catches mate .Otters all but fecked our local barbel water .Couple of dead fish found with just the brain eaten and well into double figures too .Had a 14.7 from same river 22 years ago and made the angling times back then ,caught on a huge bunch of maggots with a maggot feeder ,size 8 hook .

Had numerous teens from there and chub to 6 1/2 .

Had a decent barbel taken by a pike at the net one evening ,scared the crap out of me .Fish was ok though once essox let go .

Played a pike for 40 minutes recently  on a lake that took a 4 pound tench that died of its injuries .Pike was 30 plus without a doubt when I saw it take it in the shallows .

Got to love the savage takes from a barbel and the first run is the same as the last .

You ever had to walk down /up stream with a running fish mate ,that when you know it’s a good un .

Can’t go wrong with the source boilies. Went to France carp fishing last year for a week and they were what worked best. Always got a bag with me even if I’m not going to fish with them that day it’s good to have a few with you. My mate swears by them
