    I can't comment on the timing as it's not a river that I'm familiar with but on the flouro, as discussed recently in another thread, I am perfectly happy with Drennan Supplex.

    It's reasonably cheap, readily available and doesn't break below it's stated strength, either on the knot or on the line.

    cheers Steve .

    i use supplex in mono but not tried flouro yet .

    If not the avon i got a small strech on a club ticket of the thames but its the boat traffic that puts me off .

    Local knowledge is the best you can get have a chat in your tackle shops or take a walk along the river and chat to others fishing .but if People have told you not to bother and wait until later in the year that’s probably the best info

    local tackle shops know nothing about the river and last year in all the trips down the river i only saw 1 person ( same river but belonged to another club ) and . I was told that the avon has lost most of the decent fish in the area i got the ticket for due to a few years ago there was a otter re settlement program and they introduced many colonies of otters in the area . Thats crazy

    only 2 close rivers is Avon and River Thames which controlled by more clubs no day tickets

    It sounds like you've got enough problems with the otters Matt, but in case you need any more...

    Looking on the bright side you should at least get a clean trot through

    I've found due to boat traffic decent chub virtually disappear from the face of the earth until September-October,unless your on the upper river where waggler and hemp and tare against cover can work.
