Estimated 20-pounder on the Margin Pole

Posted 02-09-2009 at 09:41 by Graham Marsden (Digital Diary)

Forgot to tell you about this one, it was caught a couple of weeks ago. Luckily I'd stepped up to 10lb line on the pole as I was targeting the bigger fish with bigger baits.

Anyway, I'll keep it brief, but I managed to catch a carp on the margin pole that must have been around 20lb. I didn't have any scales with me as I don't catch anything I'm interested in weighing when I'm pole fishing, but on this occasion I wished I had taken them with me.

It took me about 20 minutes...

Rochdale Canal / Jam Works

Posted 31-07-2014 at 11:12 by 58osbornest

At 7.55am the canal was normal, at 8.05 when the hot water started to be pumped into the canal, the centre of the canal was a mass of fish of all kinds, perch, roach, occasionally a large carp, goldies could be seen and heard taking floating bread and other discarded bait in the weeds just a matter of feet out. All of a sudden a swirl would signal the arrival of a pike and they could be seen with fish across their jaws which they would then turn head first and depending on size scales would cascade...

No time to make bait?

Posted 07-07-2009 at 17:25 by Frothey

People are always going on about not having the time to make bait, and how expensive it is to buy readymades. But a spare hour or so a week is all you need.

I've gone back to an "old skool" attractor profile - mainly because I know that no-one else will be using it. It can work against you, because you have to establish the bait, rather than jumping on a "bandwagon" of using whatever everyone else is

The Beginning - Mid March 2009

Peter Jacobs was the catalyst for my re-entry into the world of The Fly Fisher.

Having gleefully accepted his invitation to join his End of Season get together I then realised that the second day would be at Avon Springs Trout Fishery, Wiltshire.

I didn't take too long to decide to invest in some appropriate gear and suitably kitted out, I couldn't wait to get started.

Diary of an 80's throwback

After making the bait the other night, I nipped out for a quicky last night. Then when I finished, I went angling

I popped down to Furzebray Lakes as I'm thinking of fishing it over the winter - it's important to see the lakes over the summer as you may not get to see fish movement on overnighters later in the year - you arrive in the dark, leave in the dark and if it's chucking it down with rain, you aren't going to want to sit outside watching the lake!
