River Stour - 22.01.12

My friend Simon another keen fisherman lives in Honington just outside Shipston on Stour, so after a few beers in Shipston Saturday night we had a few hours fishing the river the following morning. We ended up at Honington Bridge as there was a match on at Halford Bridge.

To cut a long story short we both blanked, I travelled light and tried various swims with cheese paste, bread and lobworm but never had a touch. Switching to maggot I couldn't get past the minnows :( I should have bought my Pike gear too, as looked ideal conditions.

I plan to explore the Stour, never fished it before but looked some cracking swims in the small section I walked, when there are leaves on the trees again it will look stunning.
