Long Lonely Nights. By Dave Weaver

It’s been a while since my last blog but times have been hard . I had been concentrating on the river but due to the severity of the rain we have been having the river is a no go area at the moment. On my last visit to area of water I had been fishing the actual river had burst its banks and was about 400 yards into the fields, so that is a definite no go area at the moment. So off to another water for me. I arrived at my chosen lake to find I had it all to myself so decided ...

A look back and my aims for 2013 – Mike Linstead I suppose like so many anglers, 2012 has not been a vintage year for my fishing but I’ve taken plenty of positives from it. Being one of the wettest years since records began it was hardly going to be plain sailing, but it felt as though every time I had a window of opportunity to get out for a day or two, the rain did it’s very best to destroy any chance of it happening. It’s strange because my year started off with suc...

This was my first session of the new year and I determined to break the new year in with a bang! I got my ticket on the 1st of january for my new water. So I was straight down there on the gates for when they opened! I got to my swim which was the last swim on the whole lake so it was a very long walk! I got to my swim and chucked out two chods both on yellow pineapple fever pop ups in 16mm. I only had to wait 10 minuets until my JRC defender was bent into a reasonably har...

With work just about wrapped up, it was time to load the van and head north with my old friend Gordy Howes from St Ives Lakes in Cambridgeshire. Each year we normally manage an extended trip away somewhere fishing. Past ‘somewheres’ have included a couple of trips to the Ebro in search of carp and zander and trips closer to home after barbel, but this year I had a hankering to head north, and pike were very much on the agenda. Initially, the plan was to head to the Lake Di...

Three months of Pure Fishing!.....Sam Edmonds

Three months of Pure Fishing! It is over 3 months now since I joined Pure Fishing's Predator Squad - and I can't believe where that time has gone!  The weather has played a big part in deciding when and where to fish over that period of time. My Dad and I had been hoping to fish the Thames, but due to there being so much rain before Christmas, we didn't even get one trip in before we went away on holiday. So, most of my fishing has been on local rivers and lakes.  ...

We are not all mad! One of my annual treats is a four day winter fishing break at the lakes that I bailiff, this session is not spent freezing my extremities all night in my bivvy, but a Bed, Breakfast & Fishing break at the Inn that is attached to the complex, this break usually coincides with the annual pike championships, a competition that I am yet to win! I realise that I am in a privileged position to have these facilities by the lakeside, getting on to the lakesid...

Another day of poor light conditions and more rain . Seems to be no end to this sort of weather of late so today  I decided to make my first trip of 2013 , a day only trip. Arriving at the lake at 7.30 am I find that all but 2 of the swims at the top end of the lake are under water , I have never seen the water level so high on this 34 acre pit .Thankfully one of these 2 swims was one that I planned on fishing. Having fished the swim be fore there is no need for marker ...

Light pre-baiting for short session success… Jonny Molesworth

Bucket loads of rain over the past month combined with ridiculous amounts of exam revision have meant I’ve found it impossible to get any time on the bank. However I’m fortunate enough to live 10 minutes’ walk from a small private lake. Well it’s more of a glorified pond really; weedy and snaggy, but stocked with tench, crucians and small but attractive carp running into low double figures. Connecting with any decent fish is quite difficult, due to the very low stock of reaso...

Plan to shoot more video to show the testing and capabilities of these new rods.Please excuse the low quality, video was taken using a basic ca...
