TRY THIS COM­MER­CIAL’S RIVER SPORT

Angling Times (UK) - - MIDLANDS -

AN­GLERS flock here to fish for carp and F1s, but just a stone’s throw away are two ex­cel­lent fish­ery-con­trolled sec­tions of the War­wick­shire Avon of­fer­ing some of the best bar­bel and chub fish­ing in the re­gion.

The 90 pegs in ques­tion, with park­ing be­hind, can be fished on a day-ticket. The main sec­tion runs be­side Harv­ing­ton golf course and con­sists of three mead­ows. The first field fishes well to wag­gler and stick float, with the feeder work­ing well when the fish are feed­ing on the bot­tom. The bot­tom two fields have a lit­tle ex­tra depth and fish well on the feeder or stick float. In warm weather the wag­gler to­wards the mid­dle works well too.

The Lock Cut has pegs on the lock arm and on the main river. Th­ese fish es­pe­cially well with ex­tra wa­ter in the river.

This sec­tion con­tains a large head of roach, chub and perch, carp to 20lb as well as a few qual­ity tench.
