  4. Oh No Not Again,………Well can you believe it, 9 years later and the same factory has had a fire and explosion (Yesterday 22/04/2010) and again all the fish are dead in the Anker from Weddington (Near Nuneaton) as far as Atherstone and most likely beyond. It was devastating to see the fish yesterday dead and floating down the river, this company needs to be closed down, they have not learnt any kind of lesson from before and no plan was put in place to stop contaminated water getting into the river. Disgraceful, this is such a lovely little river with great fishing and well used locally. I was
  5. Try free lining bread for chub, fold a nice piece onto the hock, (size 8 or there abouts) dunk in the water an flick it out play line of the reel, center pin is best and wait for the action, make sure you keep in touch with the bait, the bites are very positive, also feed the swim for 10 minuets before you cast in.
  6. Yes it came on the float, I was long troting just below the wear (second peg) on the second Medow, the fish took at the junction were the boat lock cuts of from the river Its a good swim and often occupied, the baliff told me no one had fished it for over a week which is unusal. Its a gravle bottom mid river about 4 foot deep. Good luck
  7. Due to a change in my personal life I have not been able to wet a line for 3 months; finally I got out on the Bank on Tuesday. I went to the River Avon on the Seven Meadows stretch below Stratford, controlled by Stratford Angling Club. I took my trusted pin and 13 ft float road, a pint and a half of Maggots and a tin of Luncheon meat I started Long trotting and caught every cast, Roach, Chublet, Minnow, and all manor of tiny Fish, I upped my Hock Size to 14 and fished 3 maggots, the size of the fish improved slightly, then I caught a 1/2lb Barbel, which was really nice to catch, I carrie
  8. I was sea trout fishing in Sweden in the 90's with lures on a small river that ran from the Baltic sea to a lake half a mile in land. I hooked a fish that gave me a very dogged fight. it came to the bank and I was supprised to see it was a bream a fluck you might think but i went on to catch about 15 bream. The only reason I can come up with is they were breading and the males were chasing away small fish that were feeding on the eggs? also about a year after I was fishing the very same river this time with the fly when I landed a 100 Kronna Note (about £7.00 worth in those days) I had h
  9. As a kid I use to use Tadpoles as perch bait. Perch loved them. You had to hook them in the tail otherwise it just became a mush if you hooked the head. in an old pit I fished as a kid there were massvie clouds of tads, a sweep with the landing net got you all the bait you need for a day. (most of the tads went through the holes but you still had plently in the net)

    Lamprey

    I have eaten Lamprey, and have to say its is fantastic. I had it in Latvia were it is somewhat of a delicacy. It is smoked and jellied, you buy it in the markets were they keep it in what we would call washing up bowls It is layered and covered in jelly. As with most things, people would not eat it if it did not taste good; it’s just what your used too. I would eat it again if I could buy it in this country.
  11. Shockingly bad photos, Fine should be a minimum £1mil. And I agree it looks like they were going to hope no one noticed, at this the judge should be doubling the fine, not reducing it for pleading guilty early. Typical of this country currently, we need to get some balls.
  12. go on then I will ask, what you need it for?
  13. This is the earliest Angling Quote that I am aware of, there are fishing quotes earlier but not Angling, Quote used tentatively as this is a poem. Interestingly I believe he is saying he has had enough of commercials (owned ponds) and is going to fish the rivers, No really I believe that is what the poem is about. Source Trinity College, Cambridge, Auther Piers of Fulham Date Fifteenth century Poem Thefor I stonde cliere out of doute, Shall I never ponde wythe pykes store Breame tenche. Perche never the moore. But in rennyng ryvers that bee commone. there will I fisshe a
  14. I was flyfishing for sea trout in a river in the town of Norrtalje in Sweden when I caught a 100 Swedish krona bank note. Hooked perfectly in the corner. Paid for a couple of beers after. True Story
  15. Glad to see other Warwickshire Anglers trying out Stratford, ave you fished for Zander and perch yet, if you walk 1/2 a mile up river to lucy's mill, there is some great Zander and big perch fishing to be had. As for the fish and chips, I go to the chippy on Sheep Street, Cheaper than Cox's Yard
  16. I have fished street lights swims, I have found them to be no more productive than non lite swims. in the Summer there is a down side, you get more Mozzies in the lighted area and tend to get bitten more. Street light swims are good if you want to fish late and don't have apropriate tackle for night fishing, you also stand less chance of leaving tackle behind.
  17. If angling wants anglers to be awarded in the honors list then we need to make more nominations. The awards are only given if there are members nominated and a case put forward. if we are serious about having more awards for Angling then we the members of this site should decide who is worthy and nominate them, 15 nominations is the normal amount needed for one individual' for the nomination to be considered., sport gets on average 250 -300 nominations per year, so the odds are quite good. The sports minister said on radio yesterday that they are encouraging more nominations for people involve
  18. Mine was a daddy ruffe on the Seven, I caught about 12 fish just under a mooring platform and though it was easy, it took me about 2 more years to catch a fish again.
  19. I took my Center pin and a pint of maggots for a walk up the river Alne yesterday. The Alne is a small river that joins the river Arrow at Alcester in Warwickshire (the Arrow then joins the Avon about 3 miles down river at Salford Priors) I fish half a mile up from were it joins the Arrow, it is about 8 to 10 foot wide at this point, and is gravel runs’ and deep holes. I was trotting on some slow stretches of the river were the water is about 3 foot deep, I just feed 3 or 4 maggots and held the float back, I had a very nice if not cold afternoon, with 4 chub all of which were 2lb and a Dace a
  20. As a kid I used to collect flint stone of the beach at Hastings, these would have holes in them were chalk had been but had washed out in the sea, I then used to ties a bit of line through the hole and add a swivle, I used these for sea fishing. I still have one in my sea tackle box, it must be 35 years ago when i collected it. The benifit was that I used to lose a lot of weight fishing over rock ground in the sea, these were free and did the job. As an aside I also used to use my dads old spark plugs for sea weights.
  21. when I lived in Sweden I purchased these ice fishing boots http://www.outnet.se/meindl/vakuum-lady-gtx.php Water proof, warm up to -40c, good for walking and I have had them for 8 years and they are still in good order (used in two swedish winters and 6 british) I highly recommend them

  23. I was looking up vintage roach poles used on the thames (following on from my vintage pole thread) when I found this quote “The Thames is now home to over 119 different species of fish." EA spokesman 2005. (http://www.fishingmagic.com/news/article/mps/uan/3900) Are there really that many species in the thames and can we list them? It seems a little high to me
  24. Thanks Vagabond, do you know how old it is? It does not have the loop but it does have a noble on the end were a loop would have been. Its has no makers mark unfortunately. I think I might give it an airing on the Warwickshire Avon. It’s really nice to know what it is I thought it might be oriental for some obscure reason As for a pool cue if I don’t hide it away I am sure my kids would use it!!
  25. Can anyone give me any info on this pole, I purchased it about 5 years ago at a boot sale, and it came in a black card/materiel bag, its 13 foot long It is well made and very light. Any one knows how old it is? What type of fish would it have been used for? County of origin? Could it and would you use it today, if yes what for? (I am thinking of using it for catching bleak for live bait) Anyone seen or own something similar? I also wonder if it was made as a travel pole, as each section is aprox 1.5 foot long and would be easy to pack and carry when travelling!! Any info would be appre
