    Does anyone know somewhere along the Thames where you can hire a boat for adays fishing, i would be lure fishing so if it has good pike, chuband perch it would be great.

    Joe,

    As it is the Close Season on our rivers I'm afraid that until June 16th you won't be able to fish for Pike, Chub and Perch on the River Thames, even with a lure.

    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. ~

    Joe,

    In that case hopefully Jeff Woodhouuse will see this thread as he is the 'oracle' for spinning on the Thames.

    You can rent huge punts at Georges Boatyard, on the Thames between Kingston and Hampton Court. Afraid I don't know the number. Paddle power but once you get them going its not too bad..
