Hello and welcome to the madhouse.

 

Never fished Willowmarsh and, to be honest, even if I were in the Midlands I wouldn't because of the ridiculous rules.

 

It looks like you can just turn up and fish (Days only).

 

If you're interested their contact number is 07597 940843.

To be honest my 1st couple of fishing trips have been to the severn and not had a single knock wether it be a bad day or just me so thort i would try a pool although not wanting to give up on the river as i used to enjoy the barbel as a youngster going with me dad i just need to catch something as im getting back into fishing

hi! welcome to the font of all  knowledge for species Cyprinus

if you are that close to shenstone i know of at least two other pools that are rated much better than willow marsh.

i only ever fished it once and given that i am in my 60s i was the youngest one there, i dared to chuck a freelined mixer at a show and the bloke 2 pegs up grassed me to the bailiff when he did his rounds :lol: 

two pools i would fish instead are Top Barn and holt pool, both at Holt Fleet on the severn.

Top Barn is a complex of 5 pools, rules are a bit restrictive but not as bad as willow,rates are £6.50 for one rod and £11 for two.

holt pools is a 3 pool complex, rules are pretty basic, was £7 per day for two rods and the bailiff is on site all day, irish geezer who's ar se is stuck to his car seat :lol:

 

i can supply directions if needed but they are both easy to find off the A443 Holt Fleet to Worcester road.

just read your comment about fishing the severn, there is a great spot at Holt Fleet again for chub, barbel and pike to the right of the bridge. look on Google Earth for the holt fleet bridge and follow upriver about two to three hundred yards, there is an island with a weir and a boom to one side, get in there and you are set.

we used to access it by parking on the camping site by the river and crossing to the island via the lock. you may have to check ownership and access now tho but worth the hassle if you can do it :wink:

Take it from a man who never goes fishing , if I did I wouldn't go there , they are THE most ridiculous rules I've ever come across .

 

Aimed at match men I would imagine which may tell a story in itself but wtf is "spinning a pellet" when it's at home ? :(

 

 

Oh sorry Lee , welcome to this formerly mental but now totally sensible forum :wink:
