OK, so here’s The Compleat Angler’s New Years Resolutions. In 2016 I promise that I will:
1. Catch a Pike. I’ve never caught one in my life. I’ve “hooked” a few while reeling in tiddlers but of course under those circumstances the pike is holding on to the little fish and they always let go right at the end. So, in 2016 I’ll have to set some time aside Continue reading 2016 Fishing New Years Resolutions
Today was a glorious, mild, sunny December day, a wonderful day for fishing thus it goes without saying that I couldn’t go due to prior engagements. Tomorrow is forecast to be windy, wet and just plain ‘orrible, and so it’s quite probable that the weather will scupper any chance of fishing.
In the meantime, it’s on to Continue reading Still Looking At Pole Options
Last month I paid £7.00 to join Llay Angling Club. This was their discount price for joining so late in the year. Today I found out Continue reading Llay Reservoir, An Absolute Welsh Gem!
This was my second visit to Founders Pool at the Antrobus Golf Course, one of Lymm Anglers waters. The first visit was marked by very patchy fishing on the pole with only a few small roach and rudd to show for it. Today Continue reading Maggots and How To Kill Them. Plus, Founders Pool Report
Pool Two at Cheshire Fising provided a great afternoon of silvers fishing on what was forecast to be one of the few decent weather days of the week. Click on the Google Earth image above to see exactly where I set up. A couple of anglers were already set up and fishing when I arrived around midday. One was feeder fishing towards the middle of the lake, Continue reading Cheshire Fishing Pool Two. Magical Margin Fishing.
I wanted to go over a few money saving gear options in today’s column. Now, this is bad news because it means I didn’t go fishing today but we’ll still make the best of it by Talking About Fishing Gear.
First on the list is a set of Elasticated Feeder Pellets by Avanti. Actually with all the hype surrounding a certain Sci Fi movie Continue reading Talking About Fishing Gear
As you can see from the above photo, Parkfield Farm Fishery is near the border of the Radioactive Zone in the Wirral. For some reason Google Earth’s seventeen billion Dollar camera shows the coast of the Wirral as some post-apocalyptic wasteland. Continue reading Parkfield Fishery, A Short Session in the Rain
This is Leasowe Lighthouse, pretty much at the entrance to Lingmere Fishery at Moreton, The Wirral, Merseyside. Yes, we were going Coarse Fishing By The Sea. Lingmere Fishery is only 300 yards from the beaches and mudflats of the Wirral. I was actually afraid that this part of the U.K. had been the victim of some giant radiation accident Continue reading Lingmere Fishery – Fun in the Sun
First of all, I received tremendous news this morning. No, I had not won the Euromillions, but the next best thing plopped through the letterbox. It was a communication from Vehicle Control Services Ltd., the company which has the lucrative contract for imposing fines for vehicles they allege are parked “illegally” on private property. Remember my Parking Ticket at Telfords Warehouse last month during my day out at the Shropshire Union Canal? Yes, the parking ticket which ruined my day and caused me untold Pain and Suffering and caused me to send in an appeal with loads of supporting photographs? Continue reading Festive Mood Spoiled By Need To Fish!
Manley Old Hall Fishery is actually one of the waters that Lymm Angling Club members get to enjoy without having to pay the £8 day ticket charge. Continue reading Manley Old Hall Fishery Great Fishing For Good Anglers
