  • An Angling Memory of a Forgotten Fishing Club, a Bitterly Cold January Evening and a Codling
    Most anglers at some point in their angling lives will join a fishing club and depending on their individual circumstances and interests, some will happily remain within a club structure for many years, or others will decide to move on and fish solely freelance. For young anglers and beginners it was and still is always […]
  • Carping On with Steve Quinlivan
    My Fishing Journey, by Steve Quinlivan My first memory of ‘fishing’ was crabbing with my father and brother. Ok, not what you would call fishing today, but that was nearly 30 years ago. I then got into fishing a bit more seriously at school where we had our own lake, mainly stocked with silvers and […]
  • A Passion for Tench
    I began fishing with my late grandfather when I was six years old. Usually, I played gilly in the earlier days but even that was a right buzz for me! Just spending precious time with my grandad was enough but the fishing was an extra bonus. We’d usually fish the Basingstoke canal or a local […]
  • A Season to Remember
    As an all-round angler, the start of each season brings excitement and new challenges. Plans that have been made, start to become reality, as tickets are purchased and new bits of tackle are unpacked in hope they will be the tools to help me achieve my dreams.A couple of seasons ago I prepared more than […]
  • 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 […]
  • Using Bread as a Fish Finder
    Bread is such a cheap bait to have on your side tray or even have a couple of slices in your bag it always gets me a few extra fish on these winter days where the fish are not moving around much and you need to search around your swim to find them. Back to […]

  • Chalking it down to experience
    Having unexpectedly relocated back to the area I grew up in, one of the biggest challenges I had faced was finding places to fish! I’d moved to London some 15 years ago having given up fishing as a teenager. I didn’t really get back into fishing until I was in my early 30s, but I […]
  • A Day in the Life
    Hello-my name is Dan James. I am extremely fortunate to live in the countryside. One of my favourite places to fish is the River Windrush and it is a tributary to the River Thames. I started fishing at the age of 8, but I stopped for about 10 years. Life became busy. Then I realised, […]
