Jb

A stunning venue, especially the abbey field. Fishing is excellent. I've mainly fished for barbel and chub, am new to the club and have only had 5 or 6 trips so far. On the last trip of last season I had a 4lb 14oz chub. So far, only one barbel of about 4 - 4.5lb, not huge but immaculate and put up an immense fight too!! Lots of quality roach and small chub can be caught legering or trotting maggots. A beautiful stretch of river and a meal in the Red Lion is a cracking way to end the day!

Tips

Jb

Try meat, fishmeal boilies or halibut pellet for barbel and chub with a feeder or lead fished running style on a long (2-3 ft) hooklink.
