Nice, those little reefs round there can be very good for Bass, surface lure or live prawn.
Much better when the water isn't too coloured, however....which isn't very often!

Great posts and blogs Rob. I like the tales of the cows. I meant to read them last week and put it in my dairy. :)

What with work and family commitments I am unlikely to get out on the bank much so there's only one offering for November.

Good news though it's from a guest writer and probably one of the most popular characters on the bank, just a bit of fun really although this could be the most definitive guide to anglering ever.

I enjoyed them all Rob as usual. Well done to you and thanks. By the way the collective noun I made up for delivery drivers is a deliverance. That for a bunch of lawyers is a boring.

Here's my blog if anyone's interested, It's quite new and a work in progress as I basically wanted to have some new (and old) stories immortalised in print for future generations to think........What an idiot :D

It's Just a bit of fun and all about not taking fishing too seriously, it features some articles that you may have seen on here with added content and will feature many more in the future that'll do anyway even if it gets very few views.

A few more blog posts for April, there was the snow remember that? A seemingly endless northwesterly blowing down the canal, and a frost most mornings, the sun threatened to warm things up but hasn't quite managed it and the crowds going back to the shops and leaving the canal (well sort of), all in all it made for some interesting sessions.

Ok, What can we say about May? Well it was pretty wet and for the most part flippin' cold, everything seems to be late but we had some decent days out didn't we?

Started off with more cracking chub from the canal, they weren't pretty but they were as hard as any I've caught.

Got in the mood for the upcoming river season by starting a series recounting some of the days I had fishing 100 rivers, in no particular order this was a trip to the River Leam a couple of years back, it's fun remembering these trips.

Back down the club pond last Tuesday, hard to believe it was so cold given this bank holiday weather but it was, the fishing was good though, especially those cru's.
