    Don’t you get bored fishing the same water, using the same method to catch the same fish?…. No?…. Then maybe you should stick to Carp fishing. For the rest of us a change in species, venue or method is often just the thing to keep things interesting and exciting. So this week I decided to […]
  • Quick one on the Stour
    Waking up at 4.30 on Saturday to be on the road at 5 to get up to the river pant for a mornings perch fishing with Russell and Andy was the easy bit, arriving in the dark and tackling up under a head torch. I was ready to head down to the river. Getting down […]
  • Sliders on the beach – with surprisingly good results
    Let’s face it, Northern hemisphere sea fishing isn’t exactly seen as a sexy sport. I know we love it but it is hardly likely that we attract thousands of drooling followers who tune in to live streaming of our endeavours every trip. This is so different in the Southern Hemisphere and especially South Africa where […]
  • Summer Rudding
    A Red Letter Rudd Day Sitting with the dark afternoons at 4pm now this is a blog on my best late summer session at Thornwood Springs, Epping chasing the massive Rudd that frequent there. It was a perfect mild day with prefect light breeze north easterly direction which made for perfect presentation in the swim […]
  • Urban River Fishing
    Well, today with my isolation over, a session Fishing was needed no matter how long the session, even with this brief 2 hour session on the River. I headed back to where I caught that warrior 2lb Roach before I had to self isolate and this time went to use the Pole, in hope I […]
  • 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 […]
  • Farlows in the Sun
    Once again adult life takes a firm grip on my fishing and unfortunately I haven’t been able to hit the bank again this week before the blog is due, however i shale be on the bank tomorrow trying my hand on the river! Woo! So this week’s blog is a very quick re-cap of a […]
  • Tackle Box Darent Valley Specialist Rod
    Review I was asked to test out this particular rod which is one of 10 in this range of Darent Valley. As an active angler I decided that I would test the rod with Carping and Float fishing. So, over the last four weeks that’s what I have done. First let’s look at the design […]
  • A Bobby Dazzler
    I have to admit that I am not, nor ever have been, a big Darts fan. Back in my youth I used to pe partial to a game of arrows over a pint or six but that’s as far as it went. Seeing todays darts players being worshipped as sporting hero puzzles me somewhat, although […]
  • Sentimental
    As I sit here with all the modern trappings for carp fishing, costing hundreds of pounds. Nothing is sentimental and can be replaced at a click of a button. Even if you think you cherish it you don’t unless you have had it handed down and it belonged to someone who had sadly passed away, […]
  • A tribute to the Essex Piranha
    The world is a crazy place right now. Divisive politics, Covid confusion… wherever you look opinions are deeply engrained and more polarised than ever. Thankfully one thing remains a force for bringing us all together in agreement and that is of course the Essex Piranha or as they are sometimes called, Whiting. Oh come on […]
  • My Approach to Rivers
    Well, unfortunately due to Covid getting a bit closer than I would hope, I have to self isolate! So it means I can’t get Fishing this weekend! Lucky I have the memory of last weekend firm in my head, and that lovely 2lb Roach! So a different blog from me, hopefully you enjoy! As a […]

  • Getting Ziggy with it!
    This week’s blog isn’t what I was hoping it would be as I was hoping to show you some glorious fish from a trip to the river I was planning. Unfortunately, like all of the best made plans this never came to fruition, a few things came up at home and alas my net was kept dry (I know, I know, I’m hurting too)  So, in reflection […]
