The Rea Brook, often known as the ‘Brook’, is a very special fishery and holds a big foundation in Western Fly Fishing. As Thomas Barker (1591-1651) published a very early angling book, known as ‘The Art Of Angling’ which featured some of the first ever illustrations of Fly Fishing equipment and fly tying. Which Mr Baker was originally from ‘Brace, Meole’ which is now known as Meole Brace in Shrewsbury. Which is where our section starts, while our very own Thomas from Meole Brace is the Rea Brook Fishery Warden on our Fisheries. A tributary of the Rivern Severn, the ‘Brook’ section of ours starts at Meole Brace behind Moneybrook Way, then flows past the Brooklands Pub and the side of the Meole Brace Golf Course, then wedged between Reabrook and Sutton Farm Estates, then out into the meadows over looked by Lord Hills Columm. While sneaking behind Cineworld and Asda supermerket, which is where our section ends, before it meets up with the severn near the English Bridge. It’s a mixed fishery, containing all different species, while being known for both Brown Trout and Greyling, which delights both Course and Fly Fisherman alike. Salmon parr are often found, while the odd small river carp and jack pike. The ‘Brook’ is also a keen learning ground for our young anglers, who often catch their first fish from the ‘Brook’.
Lure fishing is the most exciting method of fishing known to man, with explosive takes when the rods in your hands and light tackle helping you to feel every bite and head shake. There's often times when you will be able to just grab your rod, rig up a drop-shot, find a boat. boom, perch. If it was that way every time we’d fall out of love with the sport. And despite the hard days being stressful they help us keep the hunger and wanting more! My favourite lure fishing conditions are a low pressure, cloudy, little drizzly. But with a busy schedule you cant always pick and choose on days. this is why its important to be fishing in all conditions and learn how to fish, this will make you a much better all rounder angler. From what ive found (everyone will most likely find different) a high pressure affects the aggressiveness and active status of your quarry. I should say this is on rivers around me i haven’t tested this theory on reservoirs and lakes. In a high pressure the fish will be much harder to find and ive found trying to get a reaction bite rather than a feeding bite will result in finding perch and will make your life a hell of a lot easier. The best way i do this is by annoying the target into biting, IE bright colours, rattles, vibrations etc etc. For this reason i like to pick bright loud crank baits when applicable. In winter ive found just using bright colours works well. The depth the fish hold up in will also be affected by the pressure. My theory is that the reason perch fishing is soo good in low pressure is because all of the perch rigs are on the bottom where the perch will be in low pressure. Following this same idea in a high pressure they are more suspended in the water, and as much as i hate the drop-shot its a very viable rig for high pressure situations. Rigging a lemon tiger slick shad on the drop-shot was a lethal method when i met up with Ben Smith. Let me know what you’ve found with your fishing and any patterns you’ve managed to home in on.

Getting down to a nice spot on the chelmer with a quiver tip and worms and pellets for chub and a light lure rod for perch! First few casts with the quiver tip had it bent double with some really nice chub biggest being near 3lb! Really hard fighting fish in the weir pool then had another 3 perch on the tip all wing around a pound! Now to the lures, Switching onto my Daiwa 7-25g rod paired with my Shimano fx xt reel, Onto the lures! The ever faithful FFS lures have done me a good job over the perch season this time on a 3G cheb I had a micro frog in pukka perch colour a few casts about the section I was on but then I decided to cast into the flow of the weir and hopping in across the bottom and what a hit felt like a absolute rocket a good few minutes and a pike tried coming for the beast I had and I extended my net to it’s full length and scooped it out the water as fast as I could! And wasn’t I happy 2lbs of striped beast which has officially beaten my chelmsford PB of 1lb 3oz! Casting back in and I was onto another fish of a similar size which I was absolutely chuffed about in the net he went, the next few casts graced another 6 perch to my net but nothing big. The quiver tip went off again with the nice surprise of a small trout probably only a pound then after that 2 mor little chublets All In all it was a amazing session and the next few lure sessions are gunna be a bing the for me! And also getting back to the tench soon! To all of you that are out tight lines! Author: Khan Emin Original Article: https://essexanglers.co.uk/chelmer-perch/
There have been reported sightings of this venomous fish in the UK waters The lionfish has around foot-long spines that are filled with very potent venom. In addition, the lionfish has fins shaped like fans, and they rapidly move through the water by waving their fins. Furthermore, lionfish have floating tentacles that give them a soft appearance. However, one must not be deceived by the beautiful looks of this deadly fish. These specific species of fish are native to the South Pacific and the Indian Ocean. Also, variants of the lionfish species are common in the waters of Australia, South Korea, and Japan. Lionfish is a voracious eater that preys on smaller fishes and shrimp. Their venom-filled spines have enough toxins to paralyse and kill human beings. If a lionfish attacks a human, its toxins can cause severe pain, sweating, respiratory issues, and paralysis in extreme cases. Recently, a Welsh angler landed a lionfish off the coast of Dorset. This is the first-ever sighting of lionfish in the UK waters. Afron Summers, 39, was fishing with his 75-year old father on the Chesil Beach in Dorest in the hopes of landing a triggerfish. Instead, however, the fisher was startled to see that he had caught a venomous lionfish. The lionfish had thirteen venomous spines and had colourful stripes. However, as the lionfish is an invasive species in the UK waters, Afron did not let the fish go as it might endanger other living species in the ocean. Experts are working to figure out the reasons why these predatory fish have invaded the oceans in the UK. A representative from the Angling Trust’s South West branch issued a warning to all the enthusiastic fishers and anglers to be very careful and told them to be on the lookout for the next few weeks. Perhaps of more immediate concern is the catastrophic impact Lionfish can have on fragile marine ecosystems. Being voracious predators and capable of reproducing rapidly, they could decimate native fish populations.
