The River Kenn showed two of the club members just what it could produce when conditions are right.
To the left is Simon Carvello with a huge net full of roach caught from Peg 98 above Kenn Road.
He did not have any scales but we estimate 45-50lb of roach. Not one of them weighed less than 4oz.
Caught on single and double red maggot.
On the right, Scott Smallwood’s tench brace – a truly fantastic day fishing for the pair of anglers.
November 2012 also saw the introduction of over 2000 roach in the River Kenn.
This made a small impact in the fishing, with roach up to 1/2 a pound being caught in numbers.
We have not seen this in a few years so may it continue!
Here are some photos:
One of our members, Ivan Currie, has set up a blog on how matches are fishing.
Please show him your support and have a look at some of the latest matches by visiting his site here:
We now have another tackle shop in the area and they have agreed on allowing anyone with a Clevedon Fishing license to have 5% off!
It is situated at the boatyard in Portishead marina they stock all sea and coarse fishing tackle.
Go down and have a look (don’t forget your Clevedon license). This is just another good reason to get a Clevedon tab now and support your club.
With lots of fishing venues and tackle shops offering a good discount in the area, it will pay for the cost of a license over the year and you get to fish some very good venues.
CLEVEDON Freshwater Angling Club raised more than £900 from a charity match at Acorn Fishery in Kingston Seymour. The cheque for £906.47 was presented to Stefanie Madin from the Over The Wall charity by Steve Bonwick. Clevedon FWAC is holding its annual Christmas match on the River Kenn, Clevedon, on Sunday.
The draw will take place at the Bridge Inn, Yatton. Breakfast will start at 7 am, with the draw at 8.30pm. Fishing will last from 10 am until 4 pm before returning to the Bridge Inn for drinks and a raffle.
