    Re: Barbel east anglia

    River Lee, the Great Ouse or the Nene are probably your best bets. I don't think there are many on your doorstep and you'll struggle to find Wensum bank that isn't on a syndicate - that which isn't,...
  2. Re: Looking for a Cambs/Lincs/Northants venue...

    You'd think, but the problem is that we have a few thousand EEs who work the land, so they get right out into the fields and see these places, then I guess stay after work to go night fishing.

  3. Re: Looking for a Cambs/Lincs/Northants venue...

    Fair comment, but my head's been full of river fishing for a couple of years and I pick up the pike rods so rarely, I'm out of the loop.

    I'm not looking for a miracle, just a well-bailiffed, day...
  4. Looking for a Cambs/Lincs/Northants venue...

    Hi folk. I pike fish Boxing Day every year and, though I've had a few seasons barbelling, I want to stick to the tradition. I'm a very experienced pike angler (32.8 Llandegfedd, many Fen 20s) and...

    Re: Newbie piker

    It's a matter of personal preference, rod length. The Americans like their short rods but while they're fine for boat fishing, I like the extra reach of an 8' or even 9' rod for bank fishing.
    I...

    Re: Newbie piker

    Hi Newbie Piker - I'm not sure your screen name is going to be so relevant after three or four years on here!

    Loads of waters around London which are suitable; the Thames, for one. There are some...

    Anyone know Baston Fen?

    This story slipped under my radar. Anyone who knows the area will know these superb lakes, which have been subjected to a number of disjointed and absurd development plans over the last 20 years....

    Fenland anglers - anyone been out?

    I've a few friends coming Wednesday and we'd like to catch one or two pike. If anyone's been on the Fens recently and can direct me to a spot where we have a chance of a few jacks, I'd be very...

    Re: The Great Squid Hunt

    I can very nearly forgive the references to 'sea bass.' They're bass, just bass.

    I've been right there, over those Weymouth squid. It's fun and they're quite big. I convinced the crewman, Adey,...

    Re: Loving the Fish we Catch

    I'm not sure UK angling can make great claims for fish welfare when its favourite 'sport' currently is catching carp from overstocked puddles; surely no better (or worse) than driven pheasant...
  13. Re: Aldi's finest back in stock on Thursday 12th

    Lights are built into the peak. FFS, it's a fiver. Throw caution to the wind. It's Christmas.
  14. Aldi's finest back in stock on Thursday 12th

    I've got to say that since I got a pair, I'm a HUGE fan of the bib and brace and this one looks superb value. Plus the LED hats - got one, and it's brilliant.

    If you're going to read any of Jack's books, read The Old Country. It's his take on ecology. Very interesting and really quite profound.

    Re: RiverFest Triumph!

    I'm no big fan of match fishing but those weights prove at least one of our rivers is back on form. I remember covering matches on that stretch which produced patchy weights and loads of dry nets.

    Re: Urban Gems

    Great read, Stephen. It occurred to me some time back that I have rarely if ever seen a cormorant in the town waters near me; they are just so wary of humans.

    So I suspect the fish will be rather...

    Thanks for that advice. I was thinking of giving drifting a go. Are these ressies fairly even depth?

    Re: Angling and the Food Chain

    You're quite right, Geoff. To be honest, I'm a bit fed up with the hand-wringers who say 'but what difference will it make?' What they're really saying is 'I can't be bothered to do anything.'

    Awareness is half the battle, and maybe ATr could do a little more to bring this up, after all it is a sea fishing issue.

    In think I acknowledged the small effect angling may have on these issues, but they are issues. And there are few issues I think more important than the health of the world's oceans (or any other...

    Re: Angling and the Food Chain

    You may well be right, Sam, but it's time we all divorced the two permanently. We certainly seem to think a pond full of stocked carp is a more healthy fishery than a river with a natural stock of...
