  1. Welcome to Lancashire Steve. Not fished the Wyre since I was a teenager, 30 odd years ago and that was up stream at St. Michael's. Mostly flatties, a few brownies and an odd chub from what I remember. Think you will just have to spin it to death and see if you can find a spot or two that might hold sea trout. Behind them bridge supports might be a good place to start and look for a channel.......
  2. Maybe, but it didn't look that way when as a kid I went to get the eggs from the duck pen and a mink had got in. 9 out of ten hadn't been eaten, but they were all dead.
  3. Think you would find a trailer hard work to manoeuvre and 4x4's as said high for loading. A quick google seems to come up with things that look like small vans with side windows and a rear ramp as a common choice. Whats up with diesels?
  4. I thought we did well Dave, as we did only have half the time of a couple of years ago, but got homemade apple pie served up twice as much.
  5. There are some good all round float rods out there Dave, but I think you need to buy an Avon rod first, as any good float rod that's soft enough in the tip for silvers, isn't going to last long rolling baits around and light ledgering. IMO their Just not built for it.
  6. No Martin, there's a clue in the name of this forum, "Non Fishing Chat". I see it as a forum for the users of the site (mostly anglers) to chat about things that have nothing to done with fishing. Things like the news.
  7. To answer the question. A fair bit, but not as much as I would like. Its a beautiful place. Not fished from the bank much down the west side, but if it's like the other sides, I don't think you will struggle to find access. As you say, its a vast water and a boat will give you good access and mobility. Down the west side Dalavich is the place for boat hire and fishing permits if you need them. Not been there for a few years but it used to be run by a chap called John who was a good source for up to date fishing info. They also do tickets for Loch Avich which can be good for bownies from the bank early season. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjJgf6qid3TAhUFLsAKHZsdBbUQFggmMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Flochaweside-marine.co.uk%2Fconditions.html&usg=AFQjCNHc335xcC83CaAKL0as4rcjVZfqyw ps. There is a loch called Tromlee north of there near Kilchrenan that should produce plenty small jacks to young spinning roders from the bank.
  8. That's ok, if you had another 10 lives I'd still have top family spot for mistyping bad spelling and poor grammar. But good to know others are at least trying a bit. Lol
  9. Yes got the larvae pupa thing, just didn't follow an overwintered pupa needing food. Back from work and just did a google and yes known to overwinter as larva. but a suggestion that they can be quite mature larvae and not need huge amounts of early season food before turning. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=7&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjDovTJqsDTAhWnD8AKHbdEAV8QFghMMAY&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wildlifeinsight.com%2Fbritish-moths%2Fangle-shades-moth-phlogophora-meticulosa%2F&usg=AFQjCNH5dtxL9Rnx9y4usWHUz1NDxPxang
  10. Caterpillars may need food but don't think you do from an over wintered chrysalis to hatch? ps plenty new growth on my blackberrys just now ready for a moth to lay its eggs on.
  11. Nice one Dave. You'll be back thrashing your way down the quiet unbeaten track getting brambled and nettled before you know it.
  12. You could always Vent your frustration of not being able to coarse fish the river by whipping it with a fly.
  13. Early and late in the season you generally are on big waters, but big waters can have big heads of fish, so if you can find the pockets......... Warmer times of the season when the fish are active/on the move and feeding everywhere will give you the best returns form putting plenty of bait in and waiting for them to come to you.
