SonningFor all the river anglers out there, we have over a mile, of the Thames at Sonning, down stream of the French Horn where there is car parking. It is a lovely bit of water that is surprisingly under fished.

There have been 14lb+ Barbel and 7lb+ Chub, caught from this stretch, along with 6lb+ Bream, 2lb+ Perch, 20lb+ Pike and  Carp to over 26lb. During the summer months, the shoals of Roach, Perch and  Dace can be taken to trotting tactics, but beware the pike , which always seem to show up. Three matches a year are normally fished on this venue.

So if you enjoy trotting a float, spinning for pike, or just sitting behind your rods taking in the atmosphere, ready for the big ones to take, then this is the place to try.
