Chub And Perch On The Lower Severn Between Worcester And Tewkesbury

Angling is like life, with some thought you can get more out of it. That’s why, following the overnighter (last blog entry) on the River Severn, rather than go home immediately, I set up a cage feeder for another session.

The river is low at the moment – although with the lower Severn that’s very relative indeed. Even during drought it’s still deep, just that the flow will be reduced.

I set out to catch perch – which I did – and also added a number of small chub as well. There’s more via the video below.

I was fishing a Kinver Freeliners’ stretch and here’s a 2020 KFAC blog entries page, with links to sessions from this year.

Tackle was a Fox Barbel Special 11’ rod and an Okuma Zeon reel. The 6lb Maxima Chameleon went straight through.

The six-inch hook-length was created by a size 6 Dinsmores shot and a 5mm ESP bead. The cage feeder was a Drennan 15g and the hook a Drennan Super Specialist size 10. 

I fished worm on the hook and filled the cage feeder with brown crumb and red maggots.
