  • South West Brum natrural venues

    alright folks, just about to move to Harborne / Weoley Castle border area.. I really dont know the area or any venues to be fair, I detest commercials, so looking for canals, parks pools, or day ticket natural venues

    I know to the following :

    Brum Worcester canal - Selly Oak back to Brum, but dont know the decent areas except right in Brum, need advice on stretches, target species, and access points, Ive seen some bits on the train that look like you can park and fish opposite side to the towpath round Selly Oak way

    Shenley Pool, and Manor Park Farm.

    what else is there within say 5 miles ? any fishing yet on Bartley Resser ?

    cheers, a few of you may know me by the way, Im Lee Williams formerly of Fosters of Birmingham, Im leaving Kingstanding, to move to the other side of town, hopefully over the years Ill have helped a few of you, and need some help back now.

          Took my nephew to Shenley today for an hour with a 3m whip he had 13 fish including a Crucian about 10oz, seems solid, gonna go and plunder it next week on worm and caster.

                    If I'm reading Snake's initial post correctly, he is enquiring for NON commerical fishing venues...

                        yeah there was me, my wifes uncle, and her 2 nephews, I live opposite Stonehouse pub so we walked down there. Where do you use for bait and bits and pieces round here ? Is Trothy at Bearwood nearest ?

                          Hi Fella,

                          If you can make it over to Redditch, Arrowvalley lake is fishing its nuts off - stuffed full of skimmers and proper bream - a mate of mine had 53 proper bream, 20lb of small skimmers and 2 carp on the pole on Monday afternoon!

                            Sounds good, but got no transport so reliant on local venues. Shenley was solid, so will give that a go soon.

                              trothys is probably nearest..........smithys at northfield is good for bait....storeys halsowen......and pauls down mucklows hill are all the nearest ones.
