Pictures of the week?

Anyone know how the photos get on pictures of the week on the home page? Seems to be fairly regular updates to it, but hardly anything posted in the "What Have You Caught" forum? How do you submit a photo for possible inclusion? Haven't got one, just curious in case one day I do have one worth of inclusion.

Re: Game Fishing for BAA

What new water at Aberbechan? Can't see anything on the site about any new water?

Re: One for the eel anglers

Sorry should have said 3/4in cubes of meat on a size 4 hook to avoid the chublets.

One for the eel anglers

Personally I can't stand them, but for those who can this may be of interest. Decided to try some luncheon meat infused with hemp oil via standard freezing in bag technique trying for barbel as they like meat and hemp so seemed a good mix. Went to Hampton Loade with a view to working my way back to car park trying some swims here and there along the way. I started at the peg below spinney above waterworks in 3/4ft water about two rodlengths out on a low clear river on a very bright sunny afternoon. In four cast in 25mins I hooked 4 eels, landing 2, at 14ins and 18 ins approx but not a barbel all day. A few weeks later I tried the same bait on the Ribble in Lancs at Ribchester village stretch again in bright sunlight early afternoon and fast shallow water, first cast another eel about 16ins, 40 mins later another over 20 ins long, at which point I went back to pellets. Interestingly the bailiff who came along said not many eeels were caught on that stretch normally so 2 in 40 mins was very unusual? Food for thought for our anguilla anguilla loving anglers perhaps, just thought I might as well share it as it might help someone catch a nice eel.

Re: Shrewsbury BAA fishery i:e Underdale

Am I the only BAA member who finds it amazing that a BAA bailiff has to resort to pleading on the forum for his stretch to receive some maintenace from BAA work parties? Out of curiosity I went to Underdale today and walked the downstream stretch, nice looking stretch of river I have to say but totally overgrown as far as a "senior member" like me who can no longer do an impersonation of a mountain goat to get down to the pegs. Looking at the "planned work" on this website it is clear that most resource early season or close season is put into the Warks Avon, but why? Many stretches of the Avon as far as I remember (used to fish it regularly 30 yrs ago when I was young and fit and I lived in Birmingham) have the main bank level are only 2-5 feet above normal river level, so don't really need much looking after. Most stretches of the Middle Severn are 10-15 feet above normal river level, so need work to make pegs accessible safely for everyone, not just old gits like me. Come on BAA admin, at least provide a response on the forum, after all you set it up we didn't! No point having this forum if the BAA mgmt ignore it is there?
