    Re: Pike Books

    This is easily the best Pike book I own, lots of great stories from famous anglers and some fine paintings by Maurice Pledger, there's even a drawing from a not so famous artist in there ;)

    Re: How local is local

    Lucky to have a canal within walking distance now, maybe that's payback for those bus and train trips as a kid, even so I'll often drive somewhere that isn't match fished where the fish are pristine...

    Re: Favourite bird?

    Wrens are quite impressive lurking in the hedgerow behind your swim kicking out the most disproportionate volume of sound for their size. A dour looking bird that punches above it's weight in attitude

    Re: Tragedy on the Colne...

    I was thinking that, the amount of times I've cast a float out and a Kinger has come from nowhere and missed it with ease and you think how did it do that?

    Re: Seymo Reed Cutter

    I got a single blade one ages ago seemed pretty robust to me, maybe the production has changed. Found it very handy when in a tight spot on a couple of occasions especially when attached to a metal...

    Re: Chub and the future

    We shouldn't think that loads of chublets are a sign of the river ever coming 'back' Its probably a case of decent recruitment from a decimated population of breeding fish , these chublets are...

    Wingin' it with coarse gear...again

    This could be my last catch report for a while so thought i'd put a diary entry from last week on here for anyone who's thinking of sea fishing following Whitty's Dorset post

    Once again we’d...

    Re: Tonbridge sortsground, Medway river.

    Yeah I only walked round it as the other option was to go shopping with the mother inlaw, not a tough call.This was a few years back now. From memory it looked ok but as you say just a normal bit of...

    Re: Tonbridge sortsground, Medway river.

    I've walked round it when visiting the inlaws, the river splits in two either side of the park if my memory serves me rightly. It didn't look barbely at all when I went there but that's not to say...

    This is a river which sums up what chub are facing in urban stretches and I hate to say it but I think it's going to go downhill for you there. There will be the odd big one left and a seemingly...

    Re: Weighing in my landing net?

    Yes I do, That's a good point that the net is likely to get heavier when releasing a fish on the whole, to be honest I'd rather lose an ounce or two, knowing the only thing the fish has touched is my...

    Re: South East London

    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?

    Re: How did you get on?

    Me neither to be honest, I can't explain it and I know many Severn regulars cant either. I've fished a fair few rivers and never seen any go that colour, maybe there's a Guinness factory upstream :D

    I couldn't resist a last minute dash up the Severn yesterday, the flow levels looked perfect like last time but instead of going for chub and barbel it was an opportunity for big roach. I was armed...

    Re: Weighing in my landing net?

    I used a weigh sling once, couldn't believe the amount of slime it had on it after, I guess you'd have to really wet it first so find using the net is easier. I take a plastic bag for the mini...

    Re: Weighing in my landing net?

    In the net is the best and safest way to weigh fish that aren't huge or tiny

    I always weigh the net after releasing the fish too - The weight is often slightly out depending on how wet the net is....

    I'm still learning about prawns.

    I find Asda's ones work well and Sainsburys don't, of course the lack of confidence could be a self fulfilling prophecy when using both but it has happened so...
