Royalty Fishery Report 16th - 22nd June

 

The first week of the season took off on the Royalty with many of the regular anglers reporting captures from up and down the fishery.

Darrell Pike kicked his season off with a boilie caught 7lb Barbel from Trammels.

Peter Fellow targeted the Perch and was rewarded with a 1lb 8oz fish for his efforts.

A further Barbel of 6lb was caught from the Hayters area of the fishery but sadly we have no more details of this capture.

Fishery regular Ken Thompson started his season well with a brace of Barbel weighing a very honest 9lb 15oz and 6lb to rolled meat.

From the Johnsons area of the river, Jerry Lloyd reported captures of a 4lb 8oz Chub and a 3lb Sea Trout whilst spinning.

The first reported double came from Greenbanks and was caught by Denis Elderfield who tempted a fine fish of 13lb 8oz whilst fishing ledgered pellet.

Paul Yates can be seen here with another fine double, this time tipping the scales at 11lb 9oz whilst out rolling meat. Paul also followed up this fine capture with another at 8lb 10oz only two days later.

Brian Westwood also took a roving approach and whilst rolling meat for the day, he was pleased to report two stunning fish, a 6lb oz Chub from Watersmeet and an 8lb Barbel from slightly further up the fishery at Trammels.

The Great Weir Compound has started to produce a few fish and the most notable of these so far was an awesome brace of fish, a 14lb beauty was backed up by another fine specimen of 12lb 12oz which fell to Daryl Booth whilst fishing maggot. There was one other report of a good catch of Bream and Barbel of 12lb and 9lb being caught from the same area on opening day but sadly we have no name for the captor(s).

Denis Nye also got in on some fine Great Weir action when he slipped the net under a superb early season specimen weighing in at 13lb 12oz whilst ledgering with pellet.

Richard Booty made his visit down from his London home worthwhile with reports of multiple catches of barbel. His first day saw him catch 3 fish to 8lb whilst out rolling and he followed this up the day after bettering his previous day by catching 4 fish to 8lb 10oz adopting the same approach.

Another person who regularly travels the distance from his home down to the fishery is Kevin Attwood and like Richard, Kevin too decided to wander around the fishery rolling meat and was pleased to report the capture of a lovely Chub at 6lb 6oz and a Barbel settling the scales at 10lb.

Darrel Hughes fished Nelsons and during his visit, he tempted 3 pellet caught Barbel weighing 7lb 8oz, 6lb 8oz and 8lb respectively. The next day Darrel returned and adopted a roving approach on this visit and managed to tempt an 8lb 6oz Barbel and 4lb 8oz Chub whilst rolling meat.
