Good day at Eckington.
I thought I'd share a good days fishing today at Eckington Bridge on the Avon. After a bit of a battle with the undergrowth to even find the river it paid off for both me and my mate. We both had a decent bag of silvers plus I had 4 monstrous bream (picture attached) of 6lb, 6.3lb, 6.4lb and 7lb and my mate had two good barbel of 3lb and 8lb and a lovely tench of 3lb (no pictures unfortunately). A lovely stretch to try out! Cheers, Ben Keen.

This absolute whopper graced my net shortly after arriving below the weir on a krill boilie cheers guys thought I would share this awsome fish. Josh Burton.
I caught at Nafford on the Avon using a hair rig with double cheesy red pellets. It weighed in at 10lb 8 oz, it gave a hell of a fight taking me 20 minutes to land as I only had a size 16 hook on. Andrew Gardner
