Hi gents - sign in sorted now - problem was self inflicted (as usual)! Forty-five years working in IT does not make me immune from occasional cock-ups....

 

Yes - I mainly fish the river Thames around Oxford - The section that was always known as "Peter Stones barbell Swim" in particular just below the Wolvercote car park - must say I have never seen a barbell from there myself which probably puts my poor efforts in perspective with those of the great Peter Stone!  I also tend to fish the Medley stretch although that can be a bit of a walk for my aging and aching bones - likewise Clifton Hampden.  I tend to fish for Tench (Jubilee lake and elsewhere) in the spring and summer, bream in summer into Autumn where chub and Roach become the main targets. having a bit of a club match fishing background I tend to fish for a steady flow of bites rather than specimen fish - although I get the occasional bigger fish.  At the moment I am waiting for the rivers to drop back after the floods and for the Oxford canal to clear a bit - will then look for a better Perch amongst a few roach.....

Just noticed Admin is in USA - I have done a bit of fishing over there - bridge fishing in Florida, beach fishing off both Atlantic and Pacific coasts and thoroughly enjoyed it all - people were very helpful and free with advice.  Also spent some time in Hong Kong where I fished with some Chinese folk with handlines and caught a few minnow size fish of indeterminate species!

Anyway - many thanks for your response - I hope to be an active member - at least until these pesky floods drain away.......  :icecream:

Yup.  I tend to cover the really late night stuff since its 5 hours earlier here.  Retired IT guy myself.  It got to the point that either the field was changing too fast or I was learning too slow so I decided to let the younger folks deal with it.  :D 

 

My wife & I have just finished booking two days of Florida fishing in the mangrove swamps with a great skipper.  We went out with him last year and had a great time.  He posts trip reports here and gets some bookings from UK anglers - mainly those who are visiting Orlando and want some time on the water since he's pretty close.  In fact, I have a son in Orlando who will be joining us one or possibly both days.
