The Teme is never easy in summer conditions with long dry spells, but there is one way to tempt bites from those Teme tigers and that is by using small baits and a smaller than normal hook, size 14 is about as big as you want to go. Casters are probably the No. 1 bait on the Teme at any time but even moreso in clear conditions and I have caught in blazing sunshine in those conditions using 6mm or 8mm pellet but they won't even look at big pellets.

There is one consolation Steve, if you are going to blank you won't find a nicer place to do it, a Mr Crabtree river if ever there was one. Where did you fish mate?

Myself and Alan Whittington fished above bransford bridge (wards 84) on Monday. The river was at normal levels showing a tinge of colour. Fishing was tough but we managed 4 barbel and I think about 8 Chub. The biggest fish was about 6-6.5 lb. Although we fished the whole stretch the majority of the fish came from just 2 swims. Indicating the fish were shoaled up.
It was interesting to see the banks showing very little usage this year, with only half the normal numbers of pegs being cut out.

Jolly, you must know people in high places ;)

I've looked at the website a couple of times and can't make the entry requirements, neither do they appear to offer day tickets and the site doesn't even list their waters.

It appears easier to join the masons :wh

I wish...now don't quot me and bear in mind it was a while back but you got a day ticket off Alans Tackle on Malvern road..... I can't remember if that was for above the weir and below was club water only or vice versa..... I should remeber as I flippin lived on Malvern road....my memory ain't what it used to be:eek:

Downstream has been hammered first couple of weeks of the season, as has what used to be Portabello (now BAA) below Wards.

I had to walk miles (on St Johns lol!) on opening day to find the fish and some peace and quiet.

First bite, 11lb 2oz! :) Went home after that, the day couldn't get any better...

I'd love to find a way of getting to the Chub sitting under the road bridge at the bottom of Wards. I've spent many an hour feeding them.
11lb 2oz Quallity.

My Mrs has started getting suspicious as to why we end up at the Fox so often for lunch at the weekend, and why I take chum mixers for a walk :):w
