French trip.......and more....
First off, I again owe all the regular readers of this blog an apology for being so slow this spring in updating my pieces. I’m slack I know and really there is no excuse.
So now I have finally sat down in front of the PC what’s new. Well if you are a regular reader of all things JRC and bloggy then you will be probably aware that we have all (the consultants) been on a bit of an adventure over the pond to France. The lake this motley crew descended on was the infamous Cryst...
Fish at last. By Bob Naisbitt.
At last the fish have started to show themselves on my local water. Showing fish made the selection of my chosen swim on my latest trip much easier than of late . Unable to find showing fish on my last four trips meant that I have blanked on all of those trips. Most of the time that have been I have been the only angler on the lake which on a water of thirty four acres makes things difficult as the fish can hold up in an area of water for days without being found.

Battling Through The Bream!
So once again Thursday had arrived which meant only one thing, my next evening session was on the cards. After finishing work and riding home as fast as my legs could pedal me I loaded up and made the 15 minute walk down to the estate lake with high hopes after previous capture success. With the temps turning colder over the following few days I knew this would be the best chance of any for a bite so dropped into a favoured swim which had produced...
Kicking Off My 2013 Campaign – Mike Linstead
With this seemingly endless winter finally releasing its icy grasp on the country I’ve been able to begin putting my plan of attack together on my new water.
As I’ve mentioned in earlier articles, my prep work began back in December and I’ve been visiting the water over the winter months to get a feel for the place and try to formulate a plan for this season.
Whilst I have did fish a couple of times for the Carp in this lake, I haven’t classed those sessions as the start ...
The Only One...........................Tony Lewis
Hi Guys. Here is my first blog since joining the army
As my club Lakes are closed to get them ready to fish for the beginning of May I decided to fish a lake that I have never fished before. I chose to fish Birds Green Fishery, main reason is that it has a aerator which would keep the ice away as I knew it was going to be a cold and frosty morning. The Fishery is situated in the peace and tranquillity of the picturesque River Roding valley in the heart of the unspoilt Essex ...
Red crusty........Ashley Broughton
Finally back on my syndicate again this week. Unfortunately when the lake froze a few weeks back, it did so taking my rod tips with it and I have had to have my tips repaired.
Couldnt wait to get back here I love this lake its very peaceful and just enjoyable fishing.
This time on the bank I decided to fish peg 19 which fishes the left of the boathouse on the far margin around 200 yards to the other side. The reason was the fish were there and to get m...
There's a time and a Plaice
April has been a busy month for me work wise, so this blog is a catch up on what’s been happening since late March, fishing wise.
My last blog detailing huss fishing ended with me suggesting I would target a shore plaice. Normally I’d look for these from about the end of February, but the bitterly cold east winds the whole of the UK endured, pretty much from the end of January, had postponed the hoped for early spring. Sea temperatures on my local Welsh coast were some 2C ...
Early Evening Screamer.......
Early Evening Screamer.
Been a while since my last blog, unfortunately the weather; end of year reports for work and the best part; Granddad duties have kept me from the banks. Plus my desire to catch winter carp is waning fast as I get older, having caught them in all winter weather conditions over my 36 odd years of carping.
On arrival at the lake I was surprised to see how busy it was, I made my way up the banks till I found a quiet spot. No signs of any fish but tha...
Sitch success......Tom Forrester
With my Rh Fisheries Sitch ticket rapidly running out the Easter holidays could not come quick enough, the weather was forecast to be unseasonably cold for the holiday and many thought it knock the fishing back considerably, but my eagerness to get back could not have been greater.
I had the first weekend of the holiday pencilled into my diary for a day session, I attended the work party on the Friday previously as I broke up from school on a Thursday. Rob Hal...
Pike angling, back on the River Erne
Launching at the Carrybridge slipway, Fermanagh, is comfortable and straight-forward, albeit in full winter flood conditions at the moment. This area offers the opportunity to target pike around the back-waters and sheltered marinas en-route to the main lough. The bait-fish are inclined to move out of the strong current in favour of a less demanding environment under these winter conditions, with pike close behind them. With Glenn and me choosing the fly, and Andy opt...
