Caught this month.
This is my first year of owning a BAA card and it really is paying dividends. I’m finding you have some beautiful waters and this month I had my first ever session on the river Avon at Pershore after pike on lures. I started of near the weir and walked downstream on both the right and left banks. The further downstream I went the bigger the fish became. The largest of the day being a very modest 11lb14oz (the one with the jigfly in its mouth), the other fish I did not weigh. I also banked two jacks. Regards Stephen Keeler.
Personal Best Chub
5lb 4oz Chub caught on 14/11/20 from Upper Arley, River Severn. Regards, Adam Brownhill.
First ever grayling.
During the Lockdown I had been reading up on catching grayling as it is one of the few species that I have not caught in over 60 years of angling! They are not whoppers but I caught them on a trotted “bloodworm nymph hook” with brandling worms on the hook at full depth. Reg Smirthwaite.
Local member Andy decided to do a bit of social distancing on his favourite peg at Fladbury today Friday 6th November. Fishing the stick float and using just half a pint of bronze maggots and a little hemp, he has put eight cracking chub into his net going to an estimated 12lb overall. Andy said he had pulled out of a number of big chub during the day but only got bust up on two. Picture from Colin Townsend (bailiff)

Phil's catch report 01
Made my first trip to the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal at Hinksford. Quiet and pretty stretch with the countryside looking stunning as the trees turn from green to yellow and red. Short session of three hours weighed 9lb 12oz including three dog roach that went 12oz a piece all on breadpunch and caster. Looking forward to coming back and trying the other local stretches.
