Ben tackles the River Severn at Atcham for the first time…

Ben Topham had a trip to Atcham and catches one of the resident Barbel as well as getting some advice from our local bailiff…

River Severn at Atcham.

My first visit to Atcham since joining the club, caught the 5lb12oz barbel about 9:30am. Nothing then for a couple of hours, then Steve Holland showed up doing his bailiff work. I explained to him that I was a novice river angler and he kindly gave me some great advice about feeding the river. I followed his advice and had a mad hour about 6.00pm where I caught a further 3 barbel (all about 3lb) and a 2lb chub. All fish caught on 12mm halibut pellets using a 3oz ground bait feeder . Thanks once again to Steve for his advice.
