Wet And Windy On The Upper Severn But Lots Of Fish

The extended video below covers the session that I made after work. I’m really enjoying my visits to the upper reaches of the Severn and I’ll continue with those right through till the end of the river season.

The weather wasn’t as good as it has been on previous visits but, as I often say, the rain doesn’t bother the fish, they’re wet anyway.

The water temperature was 13.3C, so still good for general fishing. I talk in the video about temperatures – both air and water.

I fished with the following tackle: Fox Barbel Specialist 1.5 test curve rod and a Shimano DL2500FA reel. 

The reel was loaded with 4lb Maxima Chameleon straight through to a Kamasan 982 size 18 hook, which was attached via a blood knot.

A size 6 Dinsmores shot and a 5mm ESP shock bead created the six-inch hook-length, with a 1/3 ounce flat lead above the bead.

I fished with a single maggot on the hook and fed balls of brown crumb laced with mixed maggots.
