    Hi All

    Only been fishing properly this summer. Learnt a lot, along with my 16 year old son caught a few big...ish carp and been seafishing in Greece and river fishing in new forest. Now I'm looking for places nearby , preferably rivers.

    Regards

    Not much in your area but there is a nice little stream with chub resident, needs Ralph (Fishplate42) to chip in as this was until recently his local patch. Unfortunately Ralph rarely visits FM nowadays, next time I speak to him I’ll give him a nudge.

    I've fished the Darent and Cray and they are really really tiny, further afield the Medway around Maidstone may be a better bet

    Where in the New forest did you fish a river?

    Whereabouts are you in the Southeast? I belong to Edenbridge Angling Society which is an excellent club but you may live too far away for this to be practical.

    All the best people come from there, but not the most observant, lol.

    As this is also my home town I would say the Cray and the Darent have rather limited possibilities. About 35 mins not in the rush hour you can reach the Medway, Eden and Beult. Edenbridge angling club have stretches of all three plus a couple of lengths of the Rother. They additionally have access to Bough Beech reservoir and Weir Wood reservoir, as well as some very nice smaller lakes. There are several other clubs that have nearer waters. Orpington have some lakes just by Tesco on Edgington Way nr Sidcup, they also have some river waters as do DDAPS.

    Fond memories of Eltham, use to visit Well Hall road back in the late sixties quite regularly.
