After The Floods – A Session on the River Dane

As you may recall a few weeks ago I became a member of Lymm Anglers which meant I’d get to fish the River Dane. Lymm A.C. has fishing rights to three stretches of the Dane, none of which have been remotely fishable since I joined due to the floods, rain, water and general moisture which have been a feature of this exceptionally soggy winter.

I’m happy to report that I actually caught two more trout on the fly although one of them was so deformed it looked like a Continue reading Talking Trout Fishing and Pole Testing

2016 Fishing New Years Resolutions

OK, so here’s The Compleat Angler’s New Years Resolutions. In 2016 I promise that I will:

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.
