REC­OM­MENDED SEV­ER­ALS, HANTS AVON

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

FOL­LOW in the foot­steps of John Wil­son and fish one of the most pro­lific stretches of the Hamp­shire Avon.

The Sev­er­als and Avon Cas­tle stretches of the river be­came fa­mous when they fea­tured in an episode of Go Fish­ing. Nowa­days the stretch, which is con­trolled by Ring­wood and Dis­trict An­glers As­so­ci­a­tion, is as good as ever, with stun­ning scenery and fish­ing to match.

The fish­ery, lo­cated just be­low Ring­wood, has rel­a­tively fast-flow­ing wa­ter over a gravel bot­tom, with shal­low and deep ar­eas, mak­ing it ideal bar­bel coun­try but there is also a big head of spec­i­men chub to 7lb, bream, roach, dace and pike.

Mem­ber­ship to the club also gives ac­cess to other sec­tions of this fa­mous wa­ter­way, along with some stretches of the Dorset Stour.

PRICES: £160 a year adults, £100 con­ces­sions plus £20 join­ing fee
