The Bass family from the US OF A .
I really like the small American baitcasting rods and i envy the yanks being able to lure fish for bass.
I like fishing small lures for Perch and pike but would love to catch the hard fighting bass too.
I used to enjoy catching smallmouth bass. They fight very hard and leap from the water a lot, much more than their largemouth cousins. Just like steelhead.
I'd like to have bonefish here. I understand they're fun to catch.

I have seen photographs of a 186pounder caught in the Great Ouse in Huntingdonshire! The father of a guy I used to know caught it.
Sturgeon, can you imagine trolling the Thames and catching a couple of 400lb'ers in a day...

(Striper are a coastal fish, but happy to colonise freshwater, growing to over 60lb and fast)
Tiger Muskies, a barren hybrid of Muskie and Pike would also make lure fishing quite interesting.

I wouldn't mind seeing a return of fish that we have lost from our local river, like dace and rudd. A few barbel wouldn't go amiss either.
The US Muskie holds a certain appeal! That would upset Mr Collins!
I was down the Waveney the other week.
Trouble was it was the Waveney hotel Bar in Felixstowe.
I will return to the Waveney (river) at Beccles some time in novenmber/december when the boats and weed have gone!
