Where you all going for the new season?

Recommended Posts

Not telling where I'm going, but it'll be quiet.

The barbel swim pic would show you exactly what it looks like and it also has a couple of barbel in the pic as well but I have no webspace to upload to     :(

You can do it here , that nice Elton has sorted it for everyone.

pike to 30lb (can't fish for them until I have attended/passed a course through the club)


im impressed if only more clubs did this, all to often come october time i see people fishing for pike without a clue of how to handle them or the correct gear to handle them.

DG, I'm only quoting Farnham AS on the size of pike, it did seem a bit on the large side to me and more wishful thinking than fact :D

 

 

Here is a pick of the barbel swim I found, it was very relaxing watching them move in the current.

Any ideas on the best way of targeting the trout in there?

A 30lb+ pike does indeed inhabit a Farnham water but not the Lodden ,you were quoting the fish from ALL Farnham AS waters ,p.s the Bream are bigger than stated and exist as "nuscience" fish in Baddy Big :D these are just nice mouthfulls for the 50lb+ cat in there :D and bread is an excelent trout bait whether floating or sunk

I was quoting what Farnham's glossy leaflet says about the Sindlesham stretch chesters :) Every venue has a breakdown of species and weights, the website also does this.

 

Thanks for the tip about bread, i'm going to do a bit of prebaiting with vitalin/molasses/liquidised bread/flavoured meat on Tuesday evening and hopefully get to fish those swims on Wednesday afternoon/evening :)

 

 

I'm aware of much larger bream :) and will attempt to catch some at Big Badshot Lea and do some livebaiting for the huge cats.

The above is in jest and not serious.

I hope to be on the river Stour, Kent, at either Plucks Gutter or Grove Ferry trying out my new closed face purchase.


Fishing seems to be my favorite form of loafing.

 

"Even a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work."

 

I know the joy of fishes in the river through my own joy, as I go walking along the same river.

 

What do you think if the float does not dip, try again I think.
