Hello guys , i am off to the Wye in a weeks time , but for 1 of the days i will be fishing a stretch new to me . This stretch being the Wye Lea at Bridstow.Has anyone fished here /opinions of.
Hi Graham, I did fish at the Wye Lea, when we arrived we drove past the grey haired old man in the dressing gown who waved at me and Fred, and the phone number you said you had removed still seems to be there. and is on many other sites as it is a day ticket fishery which you have to book to fish, And you say you are a Fishing Guide, I dont think running up and down the banks of The river Kennet is a good way to try and catch Barbel. do it in my swim again and i will report you to the Head Bailiff who i understand knows you very well, Regards Ray ThorpeHi Neil.(Chaucer) Yes the Wye Lea is a very nice stretch of river. Been guiding there for 4 years and very enyoyable. Finish at the end of this month and for my last season guiding could not have asked for a better finale. I have been a guest of the owners who are my friends.
Well done on your barbel captures on the syndicate Crookham stretch of the Kennet. Plenty of barbel there as well and to think you can fish the opposite bank just by joining the Thatcham Fishing club. Its often very peaceful and lots of fish.
Bit confused by the other posters comment about fishing there a couple of weekends ago though.
As I assist with the fishery daily he wasn't seen and his name is not listed as (as all anglers are)coming since being blacklisted.
Indeed its sad to say he was banned after a previous visit on the 7th August for unsporting behaviour and also listing a private/personal phone number on this site to the Owners home. (thank you mods for removing it)
I also re iterated his ban to him when I saw him on the Kennet as well as a couple of weeks after his 7th August visit. I left hi8m in no doubt he was not welcome.
So either he broke the ban and came again with an alias - and was not seen by either the baliff or me or is simply dreaming. Heaven forbid he would simply be trying to make it busy to spite me. :wh
Scene/combat fishing............good title, but if anyone really is inolved in that sort of fishing they really need to sort themselves out.
Perhaps I'm being naive, but this thread was started by Chaucer and solely responded to by Ray Thorpe. Graham Elliot says the information in the posts is not accurate.
The phone number posted on another thread by Ray Thorpe in August was removed, he posted it again the following day, we removed it again. The number reappeared yesterday on the six week old post, we deleted it.
Ray Thorpe seems to think "this is going to get nasty".
Steve Pope says "..threads will degenerate".
Only if they descend into the pit and then will be closed - shame.
