The Society has several stretches on the middle Teme, a pool and several visits in the year to a private stretch of the Upper Wye. This gives us varied year-round fishing.
The Teme has Barbel, Chub, Dace, Grayling, and a few Trout and Salmon. The banks are steep in many places and it repays winter fishing or early Spring reconnaissance to work out the best spots and access to them. The barbel can be very big and hefty tackle is the order of the day if you are fishing for them.
The pool contains Carp, Roach, Perch and the odd Rudd, Tench and Bream. The carp are mainly in the 1 1/2lb to 4lb bracket so normal coarse tackle can produce epic battles when the bigger ones make an appearance. Good fun.
The Upper Wye venue that we visit has good Trout, Grayling and Chub. It is ideal for fly fishing tactics but often coarse fishing tactics result in the biggest weights. If you are going to wade then studs in the waders are a distinct advantage as the stones and rocks are very slippery. Click on the images for more information.
