Centre pin chub.
Bailiff special with a special centre pin and trotting tactics, one of many with the odd barbel. Upper Severn Bailiff Ann Wood.
I have also attached a couple of photos from a session last Tuesday 5th October when we fished the left hand tree lined bank at Grimley, opposite the properties on the other bank. We both had 5 barbel each, with two being doubles and others between 6-9lb each plus other silver fish. My best barbel was 10lb 14ozs and the bream was 6lb 3ozs. Tony Gowers
Comfortable day at Lindridge
I have to congratulate the Fisheries team for the swims they had cut at Lindridge, the one I fished was the most comfortable I have found on the river for many years, (picture attached). I had 3 trout around the 1lb mark and a small chub, all fell to maggot feeder down the margins. My mate fished the flyer, in front of the car park and his best fish was a 4lb chub, with lots of small fish. I had forgotten how annoying the gudgeon and minnow can be when fishing maggots, even when trotted down the river! Still it is a good sign to be seeing smaller fish in the river and in good numbers.

Upper Severn barbel.
Lovely 11lb 6oz barbel caught on the upper Severn by Kevin Shirley, one of two beauties on the day. Kevin was with brother Nigel on holiday, they will be back again. Kind regards Ann Wood upper Severn bailiff.

Fantastic mixed bag.
Nice bag of silvers with a brown trout caught on last cast, not netted just placed on top of silvers to show what a fantastic mixed bag of fish can be caught on the upper Severn. Kind regards Ann Wood upper Severn bailiff.
Upper Severn grayling.
Glen Irwin from Worcester had a good day catching lots of grayling to the 1lb mark on red tag, hares and also nymphs on a 4# rod, enjoyed his day, will be back soon. Kind regards Ann Wood upper Severn bailiff.
Just thought I'd share this great mixed bag of fish that I had today on the Charlton stretch of the Avon. All caught on a maggot feeder, even the zander was lip hooked on double maggot! Cheers, Ben Keen.
