Default Your favourite "can't do"... ?

Does anyone have a type of fishing that they would really like to (realistically) do within the UK but you don’t because of the impracticalities of your location or maybe the cost involved?

I’ve long been thinking about shore sea fishing having really enjoyed it when I’ve dabbled in places like Pemberth and Lamorna Cove in Cornwall and I’d dearly like to try beach fishing for cod along with estuary conger at night, bass from the rocks and don’t even mention mullet on the float

I have often wondered about moving out to a coastel area later in life but reckon I’d miss my river too much.

Anyone else ever find their imaginations drifting off in such directions... and if so what are they and what are your reasons for not doing it?

I would like to be able to trot a float for Barbel but I cant stand for long enough and I have a condition in my right arm that makes it shake a lot, not good for presentation and is also the reason why I never walk about with my right hand in my pocket

My biggest cannot do is fish the area off Alderney Called the Casketts and is one of the best Bass fishing grounds in Europe. It is also one of the most dangerous areas of sea in the world. The Alderney boats do not Take anglers in there to fish as they fish it commercially with outriggers and lures for the bass and the skippers from Guernsey and Jersey will not go in there. We used to fish it with a Guernsey skipper Arnie Braehart known as Arnie the bass. Unfortunately when he died it was the end of our bass trips. I have been told in the last year that visiting boats using Alderney are warned off in no uncertain terms. The other channel island skipper will not go in the area. Arnie was the only man who went in the Casketts and alas he has been gone some ten years or more. Some of the reefs and races we fished were out of this world in more ways than you could dream of. His knowledge went with him.

Ooooh Phil you have my full sympathy with that one, slap it on thick and hope it doesn't need a second coat

Still... at least it gives you a broad spectrum on the wish list

Try the London dock system been stories of sea trout and salmon coming out of there for years on spinners. Afriend of mine see his first salmon leap off Rainham marshes this year about 20 feet out while fishing for bass.

I would like to do Deep Sea wrecking on a regular basis.

Unfortunately I am pretty far away from the sea.
