I’m learning so much about fishing in the U.K. So much is new to me. My last three fishing sessions have been dismal failures and this has got to change otherwise I’ll have nothing to write about. So, after running some errands (drop daughter off at train station, shopping with the wife, ALWAYS one of[…]
So off I went to the Shropshire Union Canal to see if I could winkle out a few roach and perhaps a skimmer bream or two. My destination, the stretch near Waverton.I’d never been there before but there’s a first time for everything except for anything you don’t end up actually doing during your lifetime.
Today started off very warm for December. In fact it felt like August but only because we’ve just had a lousy summer and August was particularly bad this year. I got up bright and early (ie. before 10am) and drove to the River Bollin at Reddish Hall just outside Lymm.
The Compleat Angler Website Woes continued through this morning but after some serious brain twisting it looks like all is finally working properly. My only regret is that you’ll no longer see the Bouncing Fish Maps as they tend to clog things up when loading the pages.
For those of you who didn’t catch my heinous error in the Kitas Pool post yesterday, I’d said I was going fishing again “Tomorrow, a Monday” but of course “Tomorrow” as posted yesterday was today, a Sunday. So, off I went today, fishing, although it is worth mentioning that this particular article won’t be published[…]
Kitas Pool at Tarvin Sands Fishery provided some fun and games when I fished it for a few hours yesterday as part of my Okuma rod review which I posted last night. Today you get the Fishing Report.
What do the following all have in common: “Grim Reaper”, “Venom Pro”, “Darkside”, “Nemesis”, “Carp Cruncher”, “Carp Basher”, “Beast Master”, “Shock Core Fusion” and “Battlezone”? Answer, they’re all fairly violent or sinister names for fishing poles. This is a curious and even baffling phenomenon that pole manufacturers have adopted when it comes to naming some[…]
And so today is a Non-Fishing day and thus I was sore depressed and so I decided to figure out which one of three Big Fishing Clubs to join. I was actually looking at three different club options:
A week ago today I was on Pool Five at beautiful Cheshire Fishing. You may recall I had a great time and caught loads of fish. Of course while I love to fish on Pool Five at Cheshire Fishing I owe it to you, faithful reader, to explore, to try new waters, to see what[…]
Browse our selection of great Fishing Seat Boxes. Get comfortable and organised on the bank. Great for match or pleasure fishing! Note, I’m not including any seat boxes that don’t come with footplates. I can’t see the point in adding the extra weight of a fishing seat box without having the comfort and practicality of[…]
I knew that today would be a windy and wet brute and so The Old Warren Pool seemed like a good place to go. Yes, it’s a bit of a hike through some slippery deep mud and cow pat infested fields, up and down a slippery hill and over two slippery stiles. But the idea[…]
I didn’t go fishing today. Among other things I watched Spurs play Chelsea and it was like watching a Man Utd. game, it really was a bone-numbingly snooze-worthy load of rubbish. I really SHOULD have gone fishing today. You’ll just have to put up with some funny videos from YouTube.
Last week I fished Llay A.A.’s main pool, Llay Reservoir and I was impressed. Today was Incredibly Filthy Weather day which meant (a) it had to be a weekend
No fishing today. Bleh. Car went in for servicing, by the time I picked it up there were only a couple of hours daylight left plus it started to bucket down. I’m going to try and get out tomorrow for a session even though the weather gurus say it’s going to be
The Old Warren Pool just outside Broughton is controlled by the Connah’s Quay A.C. of which I’m a member. This would be my first visit to the venue.
