    April Catch Reports

    Got out for a bit last week and struggled for the most part with the carp showing way out of range but did manage this old original common to save a blank.

    April Catch Reports

    Last day of the month and managed a 24-4 from the Islands at Warminster as well as a 12 lb'er. Luckily the fish decided to crash out which made location a bit easier. Decided to leave the spod at home and just went with PVA bags. It was pretty cold overnight and might be looking for a 6 season sleeping bag!

    May Catch Reports

    A late start for me this year after the winter lockdown and starting a new job in March. Hard to believe it is May before I have had the chance to get the rods out! I had the lake to myself and so, I perched up in a corner swim with a South Westerly rippling in. It was mild and drizzly and looked ripe for a bite after a few shows in the area but alas, the weather changed during the night and the bobbins remained motionless. Brew in hand, I watched the water intently as the morning broke and there seemed to be some activity a little further up the lake. Half an hour of watching gave m

  20. Hey everyone, My name is Reece and I have a fairly typical angling story. Iโ€™m based in Thurrock, Essex. The first time I went fishing, I was about 10. My dad and uncle took me, and I used a little whip. I remember catching more fish than both of them, and I was hooked (excuse the pun). I quickly progressed in to carp fishing, and dad taught me everything I needed to know (thanks dad). At this point, I would consider myself a pleasure angler. If i thought an area looked like it will hold fish, I would cast a PVA bag or a stick threaded down my hook link at it. Life ended up getting in

    Took a while to decide where I wanted to be, I know they are wonky ๐Ÿ˜‚ I am still in the process of getting organised, but I had an occurance on my left hand rod, whatever it was came off, didn't feel like a carp but it's a confidence boost, it was warmer round here earlier so I thought it felt a bit more carpy, its gone all wintry now though ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ณ L-R POP UP, CHOD, PVA BAG

    Evening all. Thought I'd try out chickpeas instead of corn. Glad I did. Lovely 13lb mirror and a great scrap on light tackle. Rolled chickpeas in egg and cooked in oven to try firm them up, worked too a degree

  25. I wish it were that simple mate! Iโ€™ve got to render the back of the house, the bitumen paint is for the bay window roof and the kitchen roof (an extension) needs to be completely stripped and the felt replaced... then itโ€™s repaint the exterior front and back, then redecorate the entire interior which has just been replastered throughout. Iโ€™ve done a new kitchen and bathroom so itโ€™s bringing it all together now. lockdown has a lot to answer for!! ๐Ÿ™„

  26. Just got back from a 24 hour session at Willow Bank at Todber Manor. To say it was cold last night was an understatement, my mates carp drenching bucket was frozen solid. Did have a 10lb'er at a quarter past 4 this morning which was more than welcome as I've been a good boy and observed the no traveling rule and so the first fish in 6 months.

    It's been glorious today, my skin doesn't know whether to be sunburnt or frostbitten, no carp still had a walk around saw nothing, I would have thought they might have got moving a bit today but nothing showing, the sun has been on this zone all day, all I 2ant is a sign ๐Ÿค˜ Left hand is now on a long parachute Ronnie rig ๐Ÿ˜ Middle chod Right hand rod, stiff rig wafter, been doing some underwater gardening and cleared a little debris trying one in the edge tonight still nearly 10ft deep though ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  31. This one is branded JAXON, and instructions are in polish, so yeah, highly unclear. The local tackle shop has a small shelf of mixed angling stuff; some hooks, floats, sinkers and feeders, three kinds of groundbait, and the occasional bag of boilies and other oddballs. The shopkeeper is mostly into fly fishing, and some perch, so he has the section under the premise "some people buy angling stuff, they probably know what they're looking for". Agreed. I've been fishing for thirty-odd years, but mainly spinning and some fly fishing, only got into coarse fishing a year ago, so it's still a w

    Back to pastures old

    Well I got the nod today and Iโ€™m in a syndicate for the first time ever. I canโ€™t fish till June tho. Back to pastures old is appropriate as I first fished there when I was 10 so a lot of fish has past under the bridge since then. There was only scrapyards and waste ground then and now hotels and luxurious flats abound itโ€™s very urban fishing. Going to be a Challenge and Iโ€™m looking forward to it.

    Desperate times got 2 on zigs one on a chod,glorious morning again though, I would've done 3 but I left my zig line at home ๐Ÿ˜ข4ft and 5ft hopefully that will be right cos I can only go lower ๐Ÿ˜‚ I was going to be baiting anyway this morning so I've had an idea, I'm going to make my mix a bit more cloudy, leave the zigs near the spots and hopefully boost the attraction that way,with a little and often approach, I think next session I will be zig and chod ready, The tufties found my chod this morning, luckily I managed to scare them off with my fake tufty torch, the grebe is an arrogant prick
