Greeny
Seriously you should look at joining one of your Local clubs like the ones I mentioned in an earlier post.
They represent tremendous value for money, when compared to the commercials and offer a huge variety of fishing, rivers, Sstreams, lakes and ponds each lending itself to a variety of methods and techniques.
Ask at your local Tackle shop for details of the nearest to you.

If you are camping by a pond that has fish, IMO you would be silly not to fish in that pond. Certainly, travel to larger waters if you wish but for times when you don't want to travel, fish where you are.

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness  it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

Newt:
I pretty much don't fish a lake below 30-40 acres unless there is a social event of some sort and rarely any under 100 acres. Having said that, I can only fish small pieces of the larger lakes at any given time and add that to the fact that maybe 80% of the water will never be very productive and I'm basically fishing small lakes that just happen to be inside of larger ones.

I'm just dropping by to tip my cap to the above!

Very well worded & maybe puts where any of us fish into a different perspective. There's always a bigger piece of water etc.

"I'm basically fishing small lakes that just happen to be inside of larger ones."

Beautiful!

Jim, I was the bloke who caught the goldfish in the garden pond in the "fishing Race".

I couldn't give a toss whether you think it was in bad taste...maybe you should get a sense of humour and proportion.
Was it also "in bad taste" to fish in an AQUARIUM for a piranha?
For those who never had the good fortune to see what could have been a superb series, it may help to know that the garden pond Jim is referring to was a concrete pond 2.4mtrs X 1.8mtrs in the back garden of a council house in Sidcup, Kent

A lot of things about that series were not right, but the garden pond episode was done as a spoof on Richard Walkers book Still Water Angling, and referred to fishing the side where the sun rises as the fish were supposed to move around with the sun. The barking dogs added the finishing touch.

Unfortunately most of the banter about failing to catch one of the goldfish (a 2 pointer) was edited out, also the advice given to JD to fish "the swim opposite".
Jim, I know that you have said that you regret taking part in those series but the only problem with it was the producer and he was responsible for the failure to show much of the excellent fishing sequenses, indeed it seemed to me (and Brian Harris and Clive Gammon) that he was not really interested in the fishing at all, but in how we (the 6 anglers involved) reacted to the stress of 72 hours non stop fishing and travel.

As for myself, I stopped writing articles soon after the progs were shown.

"was it also in "bad taste" to fish in an AQUARIUM for a piranha?"

Yes it was.

So I didn't do it.

By the way, Den, I've never said that I regretted taking part in the series. Taking part enabled me to enjoy the most fantastic fly fishing for wild trout and grayling (in Lapland) that I've ever experienced. I saw the aurora borealis in all its mind-boggling magnitude. And experienced travelling to and from venues in float-plane and helicopter. Flippin' fantastic. I wouldn't have missed it for anything.

But I still think the garden pond and "aquarium" (it was actually an indoor pond) episodes were ill judged and ill advised.

I'll work on my sense of humour....

Sorry Jim. I was obviously misinformed about you regretting taking part :o but that producer was a right a hole wasn't he :(
