  1. Operation Ducky

    Friday 5 July 2019

    Tonight would be the beginning of three night shifts over the weekend. After getting out my pit at 10:30, the day was my own until picking the kids up from school at 3:30. The Ducky had been on my mind, I could have grabbed a few hours fishing on numerous, nicer waters, but I had let my previous failures on that snaggy puddle get under my skin. This was personal. I was soon heading to the tackle shop for a pint of red maggots, a bait I have confidence anything ...

  2. No luck lake

    The closest fishable water to home, about a 15 minute walk, is a rather neglected park pond. It's known locally as The Ducky. I have only ever witnessed one fish being landed from it, a pike of about 8lbs that fell to a spinner. The place screams PERCH to me every time I'm on the bank.

    My return to angling came off the back of watching dozens of YouTube videos about drop shotting, people hauling out perch after perch on bitterly cold winter ...

    I discovered the small pond on a bike ride with my son. We noticed a couple of people fishing, I found that no special permit was required to fish, and heard the usual rumours of “a couple of big carp.” The pond reminded me of the little places I would fish as a youngster, I couldn’t wait to see what was in it.

  4. True Fishing Story: BIGGEST CRAPPIE I EVER (nearly) CAUGHT.

    My old fishing buddy, Pat, past away last year but if he was here, he would, grudgingly, back me up on this because real fishermen never lie.

    Now in that part of Alabama (I'm currently living in Costa Rica) crappie fishing is taken seriously, and they are especially hard to find during the dog days of summer. But me and Pat, being such smart fishermen, had a secret honeyhole. There is a place in nearby Hokes Bluff, where some of the lawless element regularly strip cars and push them ...

  5. Entry 1 - New Year, New Approach

    Hello and welcome to my blog. I’m a dad of 2 that is the wrong side of 35, my days of playing football are just about over and I have a new obsession to focus on!

    I’m from Northern Ireland and I have always had a love of the outdoors, as a family we go camping and love walks in the middle of nowhere or up a big hill just admiring the beauty of creation. But with all this I have never dabbled in angling, that is until a few years ago when we had a family holiday to a cottage in ...
