I was scouting the Fladbury Weir pegs last Thursday and got chatting to Alan (Guy in Photo). After an hour chatting and sharing stories he landed this nice barbel just above the Nait. Said I'd send it in hoping you put it on the web page Decided to fish the same peg on Friday so up nice and early and landed my 1st barbel at 06:15 similar in size. Nice hot day and the fish went to sleep until 18:00 when I landed 4 chub within an hour around 2lb a piece. Plenty of fish on the stick with Perch to a pound and Roach to 8oz. Some big pike taking my fish but a great day out Regards Chris Saunders
Zander on fly
Local member Glyn Williams fishing the Pershore stretch was trying his luck with a fly rod, not only was this his first zander but also his first "Z" on a fly rod. He did not weight it but estimated 6 to 7lb.
Hi guys, I ventured for the first time down to Marlcliff. A lovely looking piece of water especially upstream of the car park, wide with lots of Lilly's. I fished pinkie over groundbait for roach but suffered some terrible pike trouble from a very aggressive jack, I hooked and lost him four times. I also fed two worm lines and kept dropping in on them throughout the session, I was sure there would be some tench about with all the inside cover and sure enough half an hour from time I had this nice tench. I will go back and hopefully the pike will give me a chance of really bagging up as I'm sure there's a few roach there. Phil Mattock Coventry.
Evening fishing on the Avon
My Brother in Law and I spent Thursday evening fishing the Warks Avon. Was a little slow until the last hour and I managed a nice 6lb bream and he had an 8lb barbel. Great evenings fishing. Neezy13

My wife to be decided she wanted to come fishing with me so after obtaining a day permit for her we went to Coppice Lake on 31/7/16 to hopefully land a carp... Here is a picture of my fiance Lorna's first ever carp weighing just over 7lb, swiftly followed by another of 6lb. Needless to say Lorna is hooked and will be becoming a BAA member shortly. A great days fishing saw a total of 3 carp banked with the largest being 21lb, good stuff! Gareth Roberts
