  1. Maybe, with on exception, most of the regular AN contributors are very anti Angling Trust and anything loosely related to the organisation??
  2. I entirely agree. I have been trying to get rid of this attitude for over 30 years within my club and the North East in general. As a member of NAFAC I was invited to a meeting of several clubs last year to give a talk and information about joining. Everything was great and all seemed eager to join... until I produced the membership application forms. Anyone would have thought I'd thrust a crucifix in front of Dracula! The reason...the front cover carried a photograph of a large barbel. I'm almost there with my own club, sadly the North East (Northumbria) will take a little

  4. Tags : None I'm looking for any information on the coarse clubs/founding mmembers/coarse fishing from the early 60's in Co Durham and Northumberland. A friend who has recently retired is trying to write up the history of coarse fishing/clubs in Co Durham and Northumberland. He was at Newcastle University in the early 60's just when coarse fishing was getting a foothold in the region. Later he fished in the very early North York's - South Durham Winter League matches with the Carlisle lads if anyone was involved with those. (must have been keen to travel from the NW to fish the Swale/
  5. A couple of the NE PAC regions have leased a new water, but anyone wanting to fish will probably have to become a member of the PAC NE PAC Blog Select Region 21/89 Blog from the side menu. Wednesday, 19 September 2007 Fairburn Fishery opens to Select group of PAC members
  6. With the shortening days I find it better for short late afternoon/evening chubbing sessions. An hour or so before dusk and fishing two hours into dark on the local river is the ideal compromise, and your back home in time for the soaps
  7. I wonder whether they obtained a Section 30 before the water was stocked? They obviously didn't seek the advice of the EA The sad thing is that it's not a wind-up and worse, it's in Co Durham. We already have problems up here with some game anglers playing the high and mighty, what image does this give of coarse/carp fishing to the 'uneducated'
  8. Hi Karen, Another option would be the Waveney for chub (you might well guess) especially at Bungay Common. Loads of water to take the 11 of your party, plus more water close by. Have not found the info I promised on the Wensum yet, its in one of the GSG mags I loaned to a friend
  9. I used to do almost all of my summer-time fishing wading. I get quite frustrated these days not being able to get in the water. There are several different types of waders, and widely varying prices. A lot of my game fishing friends use the type with the seperate boots. I would go for the best you can afford, preferably chest. Nothing worse than finding you have a boot full of water, or the dangly bits getting wet when you go that little bit too far, or having to stand on your toe tips to avoid it. Cant do that either these days.
  10. Slept in my Mini Metro a couple of times (not recommended when 6'-2" and 19st+) Have more sense these days and get B&B. Also slept in the back of a Transit van for 3 nights with a few other bodies in the car park by the river at Bewdley, that was quite luxurious compared to the Metro. Problem was we were rudely awakened by the police at 3-00am I have a friend who retired last year and spends a good 75% of his time sleeping in his car now he's not working, even in the depths of winter. Strangely people no longer accept a lift from him now.

    I'm about 23 stone and have used the JRC Classic for the last 4-5 years without any problems. I do believe they do a longer leg version which might be better. I have only ever used it on short (5-8 hours) river sessions though, not really a long stay angler.
  12. Not exactly angling but... A quote from the Chairman of the North East RFERAC "the committee (RFERAC) is neither set up to be democratic nor to be representative"
  13. Try HERE Chub anb barbel fishing on the Exe and Culm, or so a couple of friends tell me
