    Not sure about the Royalty except for a few barbel to maggot feeder. As Fred says, Davis Tackle will give you all the info you want and their reports for both there and Throop are very good even though they are not currently very regular (given by one of the bailiffs who is on both venues virtually every day).

    I'll be on Throop tomorrow, regardless of the heavy frost out there tonight and rain tomorrow. Trotting for chub with plenty of maggot fished as fine as you dare (20/22 hook, single/double red with regular and constant loose feed). Plenty of chub showing throughout the fishery averaging close on 5lbs and a good chance of a 6 or two.

    Kevin's book is a classic, but I'm biased!

    Not sure when you're fishing down in Dorset/Hants but the Stour at Throop is a bit low and clear but still has a powerful flow.

    Looked spot on today but I tried several swims up and down from School Bridge to no avail (except a lost seatrout). But I eventually settled in the 6th swim of the day below the bridge at around 3pm and found plenty of chub to about 4lb.

    All on the float (6SSG Drennan Loafer #20 to 3lb double red maggot). Lots of walking (unusual for me) but for the last two hours they were queuing up. No sign of the really big chub but it was good to see the 3lb/4lb fish and all in very good condition.

    Don't forget, if you fish Throop, you will need a key when you buy your ticket to gain access to most areas.
