Re: coppice silver fish fishing

Hi ferret, your post seems to echo mine of a couple of weeks ago except I was getting tiny perch nearly all day, hardly ever saw a perch at one time. The catch has changed there I'm sure.

Maybe something to do with when the BAA took fish from a pool near B'ham airport a couple of years ago and put in there but they never said what to my knowledge, apart from a couple of barbel and the odd tench. It's not the place it was when they bought the place that's for sure, used to go a couple of times a week but rarely go now even though it's not far away. A shame because it's not a bad lake.

Re: coppice

GUR... Went last Thursday [18th] I don't specifically fish for the carp these days, though I have had god knows how many out of there over the last few years, but had one rod out for carp or whatever swims past, and one float rod to keep me awake. Fished the car park bank and had dozens of small perch, which was quite unusual, to the point where they were a pest, and a few small roach. Three nice perch came early on, the best probably near 2lb and a decent skimmer but after that all tiddlers. I can't quite explain it but I feel it has changed there, different atmosphere and the catch has changed so I don't go so often these days.

Just to change the subject, a bloke and his mates came about 4 o'clock and he never stopped yakking until I left about 7 o'clock, effing this and that three times every sentence, a right loud mouth and pain in the arse. Have a chat with your mates but have a bit of respect for anyone else, tone it down a bit, some of us go for a peaceful day not an ear bashing. Perhaps that's why I prefer the rivers. That's that off my chest smiling .

PS only caught on the float rod.

Cheers Belsh. May be useful one day if you have to re-rig on the bank and you have run out of new ones.

A USEFUL TIP... although they are cheap to buy, if you are cutting line off and want to re-use the Drennan type float/grippa stops that may be attached, just tie your line to the loop they came off, a single knot will do, and slide them back onto the loop. Quick and easy to do.

Re: Stubbs pool

It used to be a favourite venue of mine, loads of carp with some going into the twenties but after it was flooded when the Avon went over its banks a few years ago it was never the same.

Being the eternal optimist I fished it two or three times after that with just a couple of tiny perch caught and only saw one or two carp cruising when there used to be dozens, and it was quite weedy in parts. I believe a lot of very good fish were lost because of the floods. Such a shame as it was a good venue and I had it to myself some days, plus the option of the river very close. I haven't been for about 3 or 4 years so it may have improved. Never see much comment on it on these forums.
