Re: Harris's peg

I've recently been reading The National Angling Championships, a book by John Essex. It says that Harris used an Avon type float in a turbulent swim with a 3 x AAA bulk and 2 x BB down above the hook. Feeding maggot and caster his catch was made up of Barbel, Chub and Dace. It was only his 2nd visit to the Severn and he had previously only ever caught 1 Barbel. Leicester won the team match, captained by the great Ivan Marks with the brilliant Clive Smith's BAA in 2nd place. Known as the Barbel National due to The Angling Times stocking of the fish some years earlier.

Mini 20 AC Worc/Bham 46-47 Whitford Bridge 7/12/19

1. Andy Lacey 10-13-0
2. Keith Jones 6-8-0
3. Dennis Evans 3-3-13
4. Mick Stewart 2-13-0

Double figures for Andy up near bridge 47 with some good skimmers, roach and perch to maggot and caster across. Skimmers and roach on bread punch @ 5m for 2nd place. Not a single boat on a pleasant day with no breeze. Had some decent catches on this section before. It can fish as well as anywhere along this cut. Sweetcorn over groundbait is a good offering for the skimmers in summer.

Re: Travellers Rest AC Staff/Worc Canal BR 17-18 16th Nov FUR N FEATHER

We also moved our match from river to Staffs/Worc canal yesterday. 8 of us fished Caunsall again and only 2 Perch caught between us, so 6 dry nets. 4 weeks ago, same anglers on the same pegs had nearly 30lb of roach and perch between us. So where have all the fish gone? Water temp yesterday was only 4 degrees. Have they just switched off the feed, shoaled up or moved out?
