    Re: How did you get on?

    A couple of hours on the pier yesterday, high water at 12 but missed that by an hour and only frozen lug for bait but it turned out a nice afternoon and I needed the fresh air. The sea was OK-ish and...

    Microwaving bread?

    Found an old sliced white loaf of bread in my coarse bag today I forgot about, I thought it would be mangy but it's still OK. I was going to throw it away but then thought why not microwave it just...

    Re: Tonbridge sortsground, Medway river.

    Thanks Art, it did split in two, I found a few swims in the narrower bit the other side of the high st but it was shallow and I don’t think this is part of the day ticket water.
    The main bit around...

    Re: Tonbridge sortsground, Medway river.

    Thanks, I couldn't find if any barbel were caught in this particular stretch apart from the club blurb. It is probably the nearest chance of barbel fishing to me so was thinking of doing it one day...

    Tonbridge sortsground, Medway river.

    I understand this is a day ticket water from a Tonbridge Club, it's just off the town center and their blurb states barbel occasionally cruise in this stretch. Does anyone know if this is the case...

    Re: A Few Words on UK Wildlife Depletion.

    That's a shame Cliff, I guess too far gone and past restoration.

    Re: A Few Words on UK Wildlife Depletion.

    I don't know any of this but could it be rejuvenated with money from the EU or there are several other sources. I am just thinking of what has been done with some coal slag heaps for example and some...

    Talk about complicated if anyone manages to understand all of that. I still say we will be better off managing a 12 mile zone or where it is equidistant with the French coast. The author says it will...

    Re: The red stuff.

    It's noticable that nearly all coarse fish have some sort of red or orange on them, must be a significant colour in thier world and probably red maggots are the most sucessful maggot and casters,...

    Hope no one minds, a sort of how have others got on but might be of interest to sea anglers.

    Re: Chub and the future

    Hadn't thought of that Mark and add cormarant and otters. Chub would be an ideal size meal for them I imagine and not the quickest of fish either and a lot might be taken.

    This is just a footnote really, nothing much to say about yesterday, just a short couple of hours on my free stretch and it was as dead as a dodo. However, I had a good little session last week and I...

    There does seem to be some relation to red and fish, maybe they see it better or it excites them in some way, maybe both but would they be as effective if they were robin greens?! There’s an...

    Re: Chub and the future

    Chub are a bit of mystery to me. A mate and I fished one river about 20 years ago on a regular basis. We caught lots of chub up to a lb. We were looking forward to them getting bigger, and then they...

    Not my area but I know some of it, the river Ouse through Lewes and the Arun running through Arundel. Some of it is free fishing but its tidal which makes things a bit difficult but, roach, bream,...

    Re: North Sea Cod back on the danger list.

    I looked this ship up and it's listed as both a trawler and a factory ship, if it’s a trawler how can they claim to only catch mid water fish, trawling is a bottom method mainly and if it's also used...

    The one i caught last week, probably only about 4lb but it is the catching of a wild river carp that does it, something very satisfying about it I find whatever the weight.
