Guest Blogs

This is where we get Guest Anglers who are friends of the Blog from anywhere around the Country to do a blog! This way we can see how other places around the UK are Fishing and learn from different and new Anglers.

  • The Night Chub
    Even though we are at the end of January and the days are getting longer, by the time work is done it doesn’t leave much time for midweek forays to the river bank. It’s not very often night fishing is required. I seem to do just as well, if not better, in the daylight hours. […]
  • Fly Tying – Montana Nymph
    The majority of angling career had been for carp and coarse fish….until quite recently. For years I’d always been intrigued about fly fishing, so just over a year ago I decided to bite the bullet and buy myself a cheap off the  shelf fly combo. After catching a few decent trout on flies tied by a […]

  • Mystical Unicorns in the Crouch? Surely not.
    I’d like to start with saying thank you to Bailey for allowing me to share this blog with you all. On Tuesday I fished a familiar and local venue that suited my needs – The River Crouch. I live about 10 minutes from South Fambridge which as I am sure some of you know, on […]
  • The migration back to hunting Cyprinids
    It’s had been almost 4 months since I stepped foot on my syndicate, those that have read any of my previous blogs will understand the bass took over my summer with a final tally of over 500 ranging from fish smaller than the 130mm lures to just over 4lb.The river hadn’t had me as hooked […]
