Re: Me thinks the gilt is fading

Good luck Derek
It comes with age. I now find it difficult to do as much walking as I used to previously and also have a skin condition which involves taking a large 50+ UV brolly when the sun is...

Re: Hitting the Eastern European problem head on, morality v’s self interest?

I can't put what I really think on this thread or the PC brigade would want me banned from this site. Needless to say all of my fishing friends are like minded. It really is a problem in our area....

Re: Tench rod

I am currently using a Drennan Acolyte Plus 14ft for float fishing for carp. I have caught carp to high twenties on this rod so I am sure it would be great for big tench, plenty of power but nice to...

Re: Christchurch Angling Club. What is going on?

Hi Pf0x
I, like most of my fishing friends, have not rejoined CAC. As you say they have lost most of their best waters over the last few years :wh. In my opinion what they have left does not...

Re: River Close Season – Is it time for a rethink?

Can't argue with any of that Paul.
Personally I have no problem with a close season for coarse fishing, in fact I miss the excitement of waiting for June 16th to come around. The preparation and...

Re: River Close Season – Is it time for a rethink?

My views remain the same on this one. Why have a close season for rivers and not for lakes? I would prefer both to be the same, either have a close season an all waters or not have one at all.

Re: Which of these fishery rules would you disagree or agree with

A couple of these rules amuse me.

No keepnets except matches - I don't like keepnets but I don't understand why they would be less harmful when used in matches.

No floating Poles - has...

Re: Hampshire Avon first few days..

Hope you have a good day on Wednesday, the river looks great. I can't make it as I have already arranged to fish on Wednesday. I will be on the stillwaters until the Autumn but will be...

Re: Hampshire Avon first few days..

Hi Chris,
The Avon is looking really good and hope you have good results. The dace seem to disappear in the summer these days and the roach are not widespread, although some stretches hold some...

Hi Peter,
I will be targeting big perch after my annual holiday and hope to have something to report, although I will have to extremely lucky to come anywhere near the 4-11 already reported.

Re: Autumn approach ?

Hello Dead Peg.
I fish exactly the same until the weather starts to get colder, which it is starting to do now.
Rather than adapt my tactics I then tend to switch to different species. Whatever the...

Re: Royalty Fishery - First impressions

On the rare occasions I fish the Royalty I head for the areas Mick B mentioned as I don't like crowds.
Simon, you may get a similar response from me on my regular venues, as I like things nice and...

Re: P b perch

What a fantastic fish Bob. :)

Half a pound bigger than my best, which looked huge, so it must have been a spectacular sight on the bank. They always look bigger on the bank than in a photo.

Re: fishing guides.

I fully agree with you Chris. For me there are three elements involved. There is the tuition. This can only be a good thing as it teaches people how to fish properly and it is essential from a fish...

Re: fishing guides.

I really don't like the concept of fishing guides. Everything has become far too commercial over the years and money seems to drive everything. This is for people who are too lazy to find their own...

Not having been a member of the Chub Study Group for some years I did not know about John passing away until talking to a friend, Terry Brindle, a couple of days ago.

Re: How do you start on a river ?

Hi Benny,
I would agree with chub on the block that a light feeder rod and 9lb line is a bit unbalanced. Peronally I would not go above 6lb with that type of rod. If you bought a heavier rod you...

Re: Throop,Beat 3 Dorset Stour

The fishing on Beat 3 is very hard these days but there are some very good fish there. I would agree with Neil that a mobile approach may be best at this time of the year. I know the stretch well but...

Re: how was your weekend fishing?

I try to avoid fishing at weekends and prefer to go a couple of evenings during the week when it is quieter.
The one exception is Sunday evenings. I go fishing on a Sunday evening more weeks than...

Re: Advice to Specimen Hunters

Pick a couple of species, preferably one river and one still water, that grow to a reasonable size locally. Try and make them species that can be fished for for most of the year. Possibly avoid carp...

Re: Is it fishing or just catching now?

I love these waters. Nearly everybody fishing them goes after the, usually mediocre, carp all of the time. This means that I can fish for the big roach and perch that many of these waters contain...
