    Default Is this the L.I.F?

    I went once, maybe 2010, but I can't remember that bridge. Perhaps it's much further up than I went. The river looks like the Itchen though.

    I like Graeme Pullen's videos, crazy, but good fun to watch...

    It looks like the top end of the Coarse beats upstream of our trout beats.
    If it is then the little sign on that gate actually says ‘please keep gate closed’

    it is relatively expensive for a coarse fishery but downstream and below Gator’sMill is a free stretch that regularly produces decent roach, chub and grayling.

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    It's the Itchen - I remember every one of those potholes...............................

    PS Looks like the bridge at the far end of the beat...

    That's about as big as a fish that big gets

    Yep! 2/3rds the way upstream on the first coarse beat (below the trout beats). Top of that first beat, first hut, is several hundred yards above the bridge. Access to that bridge was always difficult until Go Ape and other "entertainments" were established on the opposite bank and now give the fishery managers all sorts of problems with dog walkers, bikers and general wanderers.

    I can't imagine going to a new venue, paying that much, but only having bread and corn with me.

    Mick, I reckon the cost of a day trout fishing would come as quite a shock then?
    A fortnight rod for the season on the trout beats is just under £1500 but you get the entire beat to yourself and rotate every 2 weeks to a different beat.

    Mick....back in the day the goon was everywhere.....and you Northern blokes have no idea how cheap your fishing is.

    I thought perhaps Grimy Pullet had weighed in for the last time only to discover the tick had migrated to th'Interwebby. Its truly appalling stuff

    At least Matt Hayes had the decency to disappear properly. Not this git.

    Stop sitting on the fence, Skippy. Tell us what you really think of him.

    Must admit he's a bit irritating and one after the other fish comes up to be shown to the camera, doesn't wear with me. I have watched some of his madder ideas, such as using marshmallows for surface fishing, crazy, but interesting. What turns you on or OFF I suppose.

    That film came up as a recommendation from You Tube and I thought the river looked familiar, but not an area I've seen.
