Public car park just over Jubilee Bridge. This gives easy access to our fisheries either side of the bridge and is useful when the meadows below the bridge are wet and muddy and can't be parked on.
Just downstream of Jubilee Bridge, good for barbel.

What's being caught here - 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. 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. August 2016 Regards Chris Saunders

Whats being caught here - early 2017
Hi. I did a bailiff visit to Fladbury today just as member Martin Branch was landing this hard fighting 5lb Avon barbel. Although there was a lot of water on and it was pulling through, this was the 3rd one Martin had hooked although he had lost one. I have also attached a picture of his very simple rig using big cubes of curry flavoured luncheon meat anchored down with a 4 oz lead. Colin Townsend.
