Back to My Roots - Mike Linstead
It's been a little while since my last blog as my life has had a bit of a change of direction….for the better.
After nearly a decade of living in the North East I decided that it was time for a fresh start and I've been fortunate to land a brilliant new job in York and move back to a part of the world I love, East Yorkshire.
The change of lifestyle has been a real positive for me and not least for my fishing.
Although, I've had to understandably sacrifice quite a...
Short evening session by Kev Stokes.
As a mature student and full time dad I find it hard to do full sessions, so I've been lucky to stumble on a local water to me that is fairly well stocked with carp to over 30lb.
Within a few months I knew that the feeding times were first light and last knockings so short sessions were the key to success which were handy for my family lifestyle. Here is a lovely 20lb 8oz mirror caught on the Berkley squid and liver bottom bait over about 50 free offerings. Tight to snags ...
Rainbow lake peg 18 15th June – 29th June...Darren Waller
We arrived at the lake a 18:00hrs Friday, we slept in the club house over night after taking a walk around the lake to catch up on how the lake had fished over the previous week, peg 17 – 18 incorporated had had 6 fish from 12 runs, both guys fished from swim 18.
Saturday we arrived on the swim at 11:00hrs and set up camp immediately, weather was good to get set up. I put the Mrs. in a two man Titan and I had a one-man tracker with the front zipped off directly in front of...
Scaling down and stalking gets results - Jonny Molesworth
I was back from my sea angling trip down to South Devon, which yielded a variety of species and a new PB wrasse (but that’s another story!). After this short break from the world of carping, I was back and raring to go. With a few warm summer days on the cards I wasted no time in organising a few overnight sessions at the local gravel pit, including a couple of socials.
The first session, however, proved a tricky one. I took up a prime looking swim in the far corner of the...
Terry’s Travels A friendly invite
Opportunities to get out to sea have been rare recently, so this blog is about a past trip I had the pleasure to be involved in. I had invited my mates, Sid and Ross up to my neck of the woods for a crack at the Spurdog and Cuckoo Wrasse, two species that are not overly abundant around the waters of Cork.
Weather and tides were perfect, and we were soon over the Mackerel marks. A few bonus species showed whilst feathering for bait, including Codling and brightly co...
Well things have been pretty busy with work over the last few weeks, but with the river season open again now, I have been taking full advantage of the opportunity to patrol some of my local stretches of river in pursuit of some scaly warriors.
I have been baiting a couple of spots that have produced fish for me in the past, and though I have yet to spot any carp, the bait is getting cleared pretty regularly now, so it will soon be time to make a start. I have been baiting...
Canal Session....Nicky Howard
I have just finished a 48hr session on the canal at Stoke Prior Six mile lock. It is a great section of canal with a good head of carp to target. The area I chose to fish had lots of features with reeds, trees and brambles giving plenty of cover for the fish to move under. I had chosen to fish with Berkley Gulp Tuna and Spice in 16mm.
Once settled in my swim I spliced on a new leader with an inline lead, added a rig and then baited with 16mm tuna and spice. I used a PVA bag ...
Terry’s Travels.....Well actually Sid's travels this time
My good friend, Sidney Kennedy took an angling trip to Norway, I asked him to write a short blog on this adventure.

Acting on advice from lads that had already been there, and in particular,...
Terry’s Travels Contingency plan.....
This is just a quick blog to keep my hand in, as they say. I tried a new water this week in search of Tench, but having set up the STi bivvy, and committed the bucket of particles to the swim, the temperature dropped (not in the forecast!) and I knew straight away that my three day excursion would be dramatically cut short!
Unfortunately I was right, and apart from a few decent Roach that attacked my popped-up corn hook-baits, there is little else to mention. There...
