I haven't included details of the pike fishing at Chew as this forum has a seperate section covering fly fishing for pike. http://www.completefisher.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=141
However for those interested, details on pike fishing can also be found on the BW website : http://www.bristolwater.co.uk/fishing/showNews.asp?newsID=737

Nice one England, don't you just love the Auzies getting one in the sporting world....?

Good call Al,
so what are your plans then chaps and chapetts?

I like the idea that the Tanks go first, but how busy will it be without Chew the same day? I love the Tanks. You have to give them a go! A lot of you see the reports and say I must....... go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, in the words of Mrs Doyle.. If you figure it out and hit fish you will be an convert. Best eating fish o BW.

I, and this is not like me, have applied for a boat opening day on Chew. Why...., never had one and although it was a good or sought after option in days gone by, it is one thing you have to say you have done.
I was dubious about applying with the last two years as the fishing has not been what I would like it to be but we have to move on I guess. I have not been privileged enough to hit Bristol Waters in what might have been the good old days but I stay optimistic.

2011 is under way, good luck all.
Mark

The later opening day at Chew has been a godsend to me because I am on a training course the week before when you would have normally expected the season to open. Needless to say I have pencilled the 23rd March in my diary. Cool

Mark is right about the Barrows. I fished them more last season than I have for a few years and I had some great sessions. The stocked fish are smaller hence the lower ticket cost but that is not to say there aren't any good fish to be had. I was very pleased with this Brownie last May from No.3 ...



I note that there is no mention of afternoon tickets in the new price structure for 2011. I hope they will be continued. Confused

Nice one chaps. I will aim for Chew opening day. Lake levels are still really low at about 51% - so it may be a bit of a strange opening if we can't fish the usual place Sad

I fished the tanks last opening day it was crowded from ivy bank round to the platform but the rest of three was empty but agree will be a different story this year. I fished 12 times last season 11 of them were at the tanks so i need to try and fish blagdon more and im yet to try the mighty chew. I purchased a book of ten tickets last year which made each ticket roughly the same price as a evening ticket so reckon i will try and do the same.

cheers mike

Hello All
Happy New Year

Paul & I are planning a week in mid May to fish Blagdon, Chew and the Tanks plus a bit of course fishing if we can fit it all in.
Every year to date we have bought with use bright sun so get your sun tan cream ready.

More fantastic fish! Cool

Anyone got a photo of a Barrows 'herring' to balance things up a bit? Laughing Laughing
