Product Review: Lightweight Fishing Seat Box is Well Worth The Money for the Roaming Angler

Now I feel quite qualified to review this particular item as I own and use one myself! It’s a lightweight fishing seat box with two slide in tackle boxes, side and front pockets, adjustable legs/feet and a strong shoulder strap which can be converted for backpack-style use. My take on it is that it’s actually […]

Stunning Casting Skills in Thailand

This is absolutely ridiculous. The casting skills these Thai anglers possess are out of this world. The fish they’re catching are (mainly) snakeheads, great sport, great eating (unfortunately for the snakehead, that is). There’s also the  Hampala Barb in a couple of scenes. Two videos, one great talent! A GoPro or similar camera is used […]

Nice! Drop the float in, relax, enjoy. This Is Why We Fish.

Coarse Angler David at Badger Lake, Lloyds Meadow Fishery, practicing for his match in a few days. He had over 60lbs of carp and silvers. A word about the camera I used. It’s a Panasonic FZ270 camera with a ridiculous zoom on it. You can see that from how close we get to the float […]

Ledger Fishing and The Fact I’m Useless At It

I have to admit, I’ve done 99% of my fishing on the float. Even when I visited Thailand to go after some of the monsters there I tried to use the float as much as possible. There’s just something about watching that little float tip do its dance when something is sniffing around considering whether […]

Fishing Rod’s Eye View of a Big Striped Catfish Strike

Thailand a couple of years ago at Bo Sang Fishing Park. Strap the camera to the rod, chuck the line in and BANG! And a photo of my Tropical Wife with one of these fish. I say “Tropical Wife” because it’s now nearly November here in the U.K. and I can’t get her to come […]

This Fishing Station Looks Like a Great Deal!

This is an intriguing fishing station for those who don’t want to spend £400 or more. The Amazon User Reviews are very favourable. It’s obvious that you won’t get a top of the line fishing seat box for the money but quality and functionality look very acceptable all round. And £160 for all of it […]

This Is Why We Fish.

As long as we stay on the rivers/lakes/canals, quietly partaking in the magic of fishing we all love, we will never encounter horrors like this. (The Compleat Angler would like to apologise for any distress caused by this article but cannot accept any responsibility for injuries caused to those daft enough to click the link). […]

Lloyds Meadow Fishery 5 years ago

Found this great video on youtube by Mark Davison. Look how low the “trees” on the island are compared to the veritable jungle you see there now! Lloyds Meadow was quite beautiful 5 years ago, it’s even nicer now.

Hello U.K. Fishing Nuts! It Has Been A While…..

I joined the Army in 1975 as a 16 year old. I left in 1988 after almost 14 years of service. During that time I had many memorable coarse fishing sessions in Germany and the UK. I was always a fishing nut but when I left the army it felt right to start a new […]
