Match Fishing magazine requested a head to head competition between myself and Shakespeare Superteam member Tony Marshall. The venue we selected was the  River Soar at Sutton Bonnington near Loughbrough and we used different tactics and baits on pegs next to each other. Tony pole fished breadpunch, hemp and chopped worm whilst I fished maggots on Bolo, waggler and straight lead. See details of this head to head in the February Match Fishing magazine and ...

Having not had much spare time to get on the banks recently, I and a friend decided to do a day session on the 30th November. Given the limited time on the banks this would yield we opted to stay away from our usual haunts of larger day ticket pits and opted for a small fishery in the Sussex countryside a picturesque little water with a good stocking of small carp with the sole intention of trying to get a bend in the rod regardless of size. The water is runs water, but has t...

This blog is about my long awaited trip on Holbrook Mill pond. Due to work & family stuff it has taken over a year to meet up with my good friend Rob Nunn and fish my favourite mill pond. It was years ago that I fished here before moving down south. This place is so peaceful and tranquil; there are plenty of overhanging trees to hide your traps in for Mr. Carp. The lily pads have all died back unfortunately, as they are a great holding area. I arrived just after 6pm on...

Mid-winter off-shore.....Terry's Travels

As the temperature plummets, our coastal waters cool dramatically, sending most viable species well off-shore and into deeper water. There are still plenty of options open to dinghy anglers willing to brave the elements and head out, if wind speed, direction and tidal flows allow! A recent adventure saw us out and over a new deep-water mark, anchoring through the flooding tide to see exactly what was about. Constantly trying out new marks such as this doesn’t always wo...

Also known as Small-eyed Ray ( Raja microocellata) The opportunity recently arose, to take a trip south to the surf beaches of Southern Ireland, in search of Painted Ray. My beach-angling buddy, Andrew Wolsey agreed to join me on my quest, and with some hasty preparation in place, we were on our way, on another fish-hunting adventure. On arrival, we wasted no time in putting the gear together, but it soon became apparent that a heavy presence of weed would destroy a...

Bag a Bull-Huss.......Terry’s Travels

One of the advantages of targeting Bull-Huss from a boat is that you rarely have to travel too far off-shore to find them. This can be a handy contingency plan when poor weather conditions hamper an off-shore trip. Huss prefer mixed ground, that is to say, sand and shingle that borders reef, broken sea bed and kelp beds. Huss that inhabit pure weeded areas are often darker in colour, whereas the sand-shingle, reef fish tend to have an amazing leopard-spot colouration. ...

Managed a 24 hour session last night with a few of my mates at Old Mill Lakes in Lincolnshire. I have never been to this fishery just heard some good things about some good sized carp on the bank in the lake known as birch this lake has carp including 11 known 30s around 60 20s and a few just under which to me was perfect for a chance at bagging a winter cracker. don’t be fooled thinking this will be an easy water as locals reported to us that to have one fish out of the lake...

Session 1 Members Lakes

 A new year and a new lake to fish, my last two blogs involved me pre-baiting the smaller lake on the complex so that’s where I started. The weather was ok a lot of cloud cover though but it was mild something that  I thought the carp would react to. I decided to go with a mobile approach and fish with one rod, so that I can pounce on any showing fish. I started down at one end of the lake where I saw a lot of bubbles a sure sign as to where the fish were, by the time I had s...
