However, the report also came with a warning... follow this link to find out more.

Phil's 'calmer' option lands him an 11lb barbel and 5lb chub

The decision by a self-employed Oldbury angler to fish the calmer and deeper water off the Meadow rather than the more popular Island pegs at Anchor Meadow on the River Avon paid off handsomely when he landed this 11lb 8oz barbel (left) and a chub which tipped the scales at 5lb 4oz. Follow this link to find out how he did it.

News bites...

Between April and May 2018, anglers can fish Butlers Hill on the Warwickshire/Oxfordshire border for 24 hours at a discounted price of £12.00 instead of £18.00 for adults and £15.00 for OAPs and Juniors.

In common with an increasing number of fisheries, Staffordshire's Pipehill Fisheries has banned the taking of stink bags onto the site in a move to prevent the spread of disease.

Derbyshire's Birch House Lakes has relaxed its regulations on the use of keepnets. Having banned pleasure anglers from using them completely last year, the fishery is now allowing them to be used on Buzzard, Mallard and Teal lakes. The fishery has also increased the cost of match pegs from £6.50 to £7.00.

Free licences attract the youngsters

The number of young people going fishing has increased significantly since the introduction of free junior licences last year.

According to the Environment Agency a total of 79,000 junior licences - which are freely available on the internet - were issued over the year, representing a 53 per cent increase.

The age bracket for free junior licences has changed from 12-16 to 13-16 year olds. Those under 13 do not need a licence to fish.
