River Blithe – Loxley
A small shallow river that at first glance does not warrant a great deal of attention, however on closer inspection is full of fish holding features and catches of up to a dozen chub in a session are not uncommon with fish running to around the four pounds mark. As with the Trent a stalking approach is recommended with cage feeder and bread flake scoring well. There are a good head of brownies that will readily take a well presented dry fly but only the stealthiest of anglers will succeed.
