Anyone know the name of the road or a nearby postcode for sailing club or sailing club name ?This info is from last time....
I suggest we meet between 9am and 10 at the North car park which is situated on the road between Upper Boddington and Byfield. There isn’t an accurate postcode for it?
If you are approaching from Upper Boddington it will be on your right.
From Byfield, the left, beyond the sailing club car park.
There are no long walks involved but there are some steps or a ramp to get up to the bank. Not too strenuous...
Parking is free.
Day tickets are £7 or £4 OAP.
The pegs are all level concrete with steps down to them. There are 3 levels to sit on at different heights due to the rise and fall of the water level.
Average depth is 6’-8’ depending on water level.
What to bring?
Float and feeder gear mainly, good roach can be caught close in on waggler or whip.
Carp and tench on feeder, pellet waggler.
Pike to pike tactics.
Pole fishing is tricky unless the Ressie is full of water, I will check with the bailiff beforehand.
There are no food outlets on site, or anywhere near, so bring your own.
Hopefully the weather will be favourable. It can be quite windy there as it’s quite high up, so naturally
bring suitable attire.
Thanks, I was just on reservoir website,
It's about 40 mile and 50 minutes away. J11 off M40
I sometimes do a 300+ miles round trip to fish matches in the north west.If I lived only 40 miles away I would go there often. Mine is 110 miles each way and shall savour the day.
Hopefully when the covid thing is done I shall take a tent and camp nearby and have a few days there.
Did you try the bagging waggler on Clattercote Steve ,?I’ve never fished Boddington, but I’ve fished Clattercote several times. I’ve blanked a few times at Clattercote, but had some great days there too! My first short session there resulted in a 20lb carp that I had to drag out from under the board walk!
I look forward to Fishing Boddington for the first time. Distance wise both reservoirs are practically the same from Bromsgrove.
Do I take my pole ??? Decisions decisions,
It will more than likely be float and feeder rods, and possible margin pole to fish to hand.
Is that on a just in case basis Steve? I doubt I will fish 2 rods at the same time so shall decide on the day if it shall be the float or feeder. I always stress about Tackle for a new venue where it's not about trees and bushes and tight swims.I'm taking two waggler rods: 15 ft and a 13 ft, plus two feeder rods (one light and one heavy). I'm leaving the pole at home!
