Back on the difficult northern water last weekend in the pouring rain and snow flurries. Arrived straight after work hoping to snatch a quick bite. Arrived around 5 pm straight after work with all my gear that I had prepared the night before. Knowing that daylight wouldn’t be on my side I had all 3 rods set up to a silty spot I found the previous week at around 90 yards range in 8 foot of water just at the tip of an overhanging tree. I quickly baited the 3 rods with half o...

Well where do I start its been a difficult few months fishing what with the weather but that still has not deterred me from the bank. My last blog I mentioned I was fishing a big low stock gravel pit but with not having any success along with every other angler on the lake I decided to fish my local syndicate water where after the first cold night and baiting up in the margins with a kilo of berkley gulp pineapple fever boilies and a bed of natural hemp the rod ripped off and...

From Sticklebacks to specimens by James Davies

Let me introduce myself, my name is James Davies. I live in Harrogate, North Yorkshire and have done so for the last two years. The majority of my fishing takes place on the river Swale and the Nidd, with the closed season limiting me to the local gravel pits and estate lakes. It’s not that I dislike still waters, far from it, I enjoy catching specimen fish off all types but there is a certain magic about being on a river, letting life pass you by at a sedate pace after the p...

Hard fishing....Adam Spearing

As of late I have been fishing a hard lake. Not having a bend in my rod for a month I decided to go to a lake I know that fishes quite well in the winter. There was a hard frost the night before and the lake had patches of ice on it. Having studied the lake for 30 minutes I spotted a patch of reeds twitching. I catapulted 10 gulp sweetcorn in the area. I then put two gulp sweetcorn on a hair and hooked a 50p sized mesh bag of gulp wheat on. It was only a cast of 10 yards, whi...

Winter carp fishing......Ryan Brown

Winter is often seen as a hard time of the year to catch carp and it can be if you go in with the wrong approach and tactics. A couple of years ago I didn’t see the attraction in winter fishing. Shorter, cold days and freezing nights plus the bigger chance of blanking all lessened the appeal. But now I am hooked on it, lovely dark fish that are at a good weight, and the chance of a nail biting fight. But the thing that has given me all the success over the winter is the ‘Hi-V...

When To “Think Different..........Kirk Smith”

For many carp anglers, the technical side of fishing can be overwhelming, and therefore often overlooked. It is very easy to fall into the trap of buying the latest pre tied rig or follow the current bait fashion, and while this may well put fish on the bank, it may not give you that long term advantage. Having an understanding of the technicalities can be a major edge to your own fishing. How many of us actually think of, or understand rig mechanics? I’ve seen so ma...

As I sit here writing this, I must say that I am most disappointed in the current weather we are having. Outside it feels more like Iceland than England as the current day time temperature is close to minus five! And it’s pushing in towards mid March. This Siberian burst of cold weather is certainly having an adverse effect on the fishing and on me. Today was the first day since mid February where I have had a chance to wet a line and as you can see I have not bothered inste...

How much do you think about your fishing? I don’t mean things like ‘where should I go this Saturday’, or ‘what should I have in my sarnies’, but more fundamental questions, such as ‘why is that swim fishing’, or ‘why did that fish eat that bait’? Amongst many other things, it was Richard Walker who really brought to prominence this more analytical type of angling, and whilst some might consider it sterile, and removing the ‘magic’ from fishing, it certainly suits my own minds...
