Observing the Seasons – Mike Linstead

Over the winter I packed away the Carp fishing gear in favour of targeting a few other species over the colder months. I feel it's important to practice a diverse array of methods and also to observe the traditional seasons of our great sport. Not only does it improves your general watercraft but it also keeps your angling year filled with excitement and variety. So, over the winter, I've been fishing for Grayling on the stick float and centrepin and also targeting ...

The last week on the Tarn.....Steve Peach

The last few months on the Tarn have been very hard. With the mild weather it has brought a lot of anglers out and too much bait has been introduced and with all the rain and floods the quality of the water has suffered and the fish have really not been on the feed. And with only a week of the season left on the Tarn I really needed to catch a fish or two. My last trip resulted in me loosing on and I was gutted as it was my first run in 10 nights! The weather had really tak...

Back in November 2012 a few months before I was made a Consultant I bought three spools of various sizes of a brand new line called Berkley Nanofil which, at the time had only been out for a few weeks. What appealed to me was the super fine diameter and also the fact that it has no stretch - it sounded perfect for lure fishing. Straight away I noticed that it felt very different from the braids I'd been using previously - in fact, Nanofil is not a braid, not a fluorocarbo...

The Split Belly is the best search lure I know, catching Pike, Perch and Zander....Paul Garner

The Split Belly is the best search lure I know, catching Pike, Perch and Zander. I have thousands of lures, most of which are quite specialised but, if I had to pick one lure to fish with for the rest of my life it would have to be this one - simply because it catches just about every predator going! The slim body and over-sized paddle tail gives a distinct fast action that can be fished either slow and deep or fast and shallow depending upon how the fish are reacting. ...

It was in Kent where I set out to complete my first 24 hour session and with the weather being in everyone’s favour there was little choice of swims available to me on the day in fact there was only one swim left on the lake. The lake in question was one of Frant lakes specimen waters, with a good head of high teens and low twenties I set about catapulting boilies to the island which is visible in the pictures. I had just recently placed a bait order and just the d...

  After our successful Flounder bash earlier in the day, we made sure that we were well fed and suitably geared up for the night session ahead. This would be on one of the many surf beaches Cork has to offer. On this occasion we were in search of Painted Ray, and in this particular area, if lucky enough to find them, they range from 6-14lbs. With light southerlies and relatively calm seas, our optimism was high. The ever-present “doggies” made an early ...

Mid winter

Mid winter If you are a river angler then this winter surly has to be one of the poorest we have had to suffer for some years but if you are an angler who frequents still waters then what a bonanza! This really has to rate as one of the best winters I have had in angling on the lakes and pools of Shropshire for many years. The almost constant stream of warm west to south westerly low pressures that have rolled over our fair isle have made the carp of Shropshire feed harder t...

With both of us armed and ready to go with the great smelling peach and black pepper. we fished small ...
