Amazing Chew Pike

We've just finished the second week of the 2015 Chew Valley Pike Trials and in just 10 days, over 20 pike in excess of 30lbs have been landed, topped off by a massive fish of 42lbs 9ozs.

I guided Mike Anderton and his son Will from Keswick last Thursday and Friday on Chew.  They managed 13 pike to 12:08 on lures, which included PB's for them both.  Mike also landed a fantastic perch of 4:10 - a real fish of a lifetime!

This Monday Dave Sproston and I had 4 pike up to 10lbs on lures and yesterday I joined John Synnuck and Neil Leaver for a day of fishing deads at anchor.  The flat calm conditions and high pressure all week were not conducive to bringing the pike on the feed, but Neil managed a superbly conditioned pike of 30lbs 4ozs from Spring Bay.

Next week I am also out on the first day with Daryl Hunter, who is hoping for one of Chew's leviathans.  We could certainly do with a bit of wind to help the boat to drift and thereby cover plenty of water and lots of fish. 

Trout Season bookings

I am now taking bookings for the 2015 trout fishing season.  Blagdon opens on Saturday 7th March and Chew a week later. 
Please drop me an email to:  to book a day on either lake.
