warwickshire avon barbel


james hunt

i have just booked a weeks holiday on the warwickshire avon. my first and second choice was the hampshire avon or river severn. but couldnt find any suitable accommodation. so the warwickshire avon it is.
my problem is location i am staying at rayford caravan park. which according to the owners aint really known for its barbel fishing.
so if anyone knows of a good barbel strech close to stratford apon avon. or anyone who has stayed at rayford caravan park with any advice on that strech of water would be very handy.

James - I don't fish the Avon, but I would have thought your best bet would be to buy a Birmingham AA ticket when you get there, which is only ?20. Assuming you have a car, you are within easy reach from Stratford to the Avon, Severn and Teme all of which you can fish on the BAA ticket and all have good barbel stretches.
