- This trip is the start of my campaign to catch a nice big lump out of the Hampshire Avon. With this in mind, I headed to the area where I have seen them before and have tried this area a few times before (without a great deal of success), location appears not to be the issue for me, it’s finding their feeding spots and their everyday patrol route. This is time consuming and I clearly need to put more effort into that part of the challenge. The section I found them in regularly is about 200 meters long and consists of many features; form pads, reed, wide open areas and plenty of weed.It’s certainly going to be a challenge and I also can’t ignore other stretches of the river. As it’s the 16th June, it would be rude not to wet a line today.
I tried a couple of likely spots on the way back down river. I had put some bait out on the way up stream, other than one Carp, load of face and a couple of Chub that’s all I spotted. However, I did find some very interesting areas that need further investigation.
I will be back soon for another look around.
Until next time
