Thread: Fresh start

  1. #1

    Default Fresh start

    Hi everyone out there, just hit 60 thought I'd would start up fishing again after a 15year break.
    My it all looks a bit serious, so got some bits together for a little bit of course fishing.
    Going to try some spots I used to fish, and hoping to find some new ones too!
    Based in Faversham but came fro Canterbury, now also have a place in Confolens France on the river Vienna pointers for any of these areas much appreciated.

    Hi Andy
    Welcome to FM.

    You’re local to me, what sort of fishing do you enjoy? There are plenty of day ticket waters, clubs and the river Stour to explore.

    Hello Andy and Welcome to FishingMagic.

    While many of the current vogue methods might seem a little daunting just remember that the methods you used in the past will STILL catch fish.

    A decent bait presented well under a suitable float will always catch, providing the fish are there in the first place.

    Ask for advice on here if unsure and good luck . . . .

    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. ~

    Not sure if I know three arches, Thanington maybe?

    Yes the old mill is now a housing development but as a sweetener the builders made a riverside walk including some beautifully crafted platforms which I fish from occasionally.



    Some good chub and carp in there but their numbers are diminishing as fish are being taken sadly. Another new development under way at Kingsmead, so more swims lost I suspect but it is still free between Thanington and Sturry. Downstream of there the CDAA control stretches at Fordwich, Grove Ferry and Plucks Gutter with some lovely lakes as well. PM me anytime if you’d like further information.

    Hi Andy, welcome to FM.
    Fishing’s changed as much as you want it to. The fish are still the same, some of the modern methods are good some I think are over complex. Most of all enjoy

    Welcome to the forum. Enjoy your fishing and at least you are not starting from scratch.
