We are a small group mainly match anglers that fish inter-force competitions from Birmingham to Dorset. Including friendly matches against civilian clubs.
The match section tries to encourage non-match men to come along so they can try different venues and styles of fishing.
The force club subsidise us by paying the annual rent on about 2 miles of the Somerset Frome at Farleigh Hungerford. This is a small river that generally fishes better from October to March. Quite often you will have the river to yourself. There is 3 access points. The main one allows access by car to the first 12 pegs via a gravelled track which you park on leaving walks of only a few yards.
The fishing is varied form shallow pegs to 6 ft. deep. Pike to 10lbs, perch to 3lbs, chub to 4.5 lbs and there are a few bream to 7lbs and the odd barbell to 5 lbs. The river is full of roach up to 2lbs. We are a member of the Bristol & West of England Anglers which means included in your club tab fishing the Bristol Avon from Swineford to Londonderry Farm below Keynsham, about 3 miles of river.
