Mat Hillman:

Well I'm an expert at blanking on just about every water in Essex, I'll gladly teach you all how it's done!

By the same token I am happy to cover the West Sussex area :D

Ben88, Anglers Net Members Club is a "club" run via this site whereby some of us put our hands in our pockets in return for a few additional benefits...certain fishins have been organised for members only, by other members for example, plus we get additional discounts at certain suppliers.....for me its a chance to give something back to Elton for hosting this site.


Budgie, aren't you a pro???


Anyhow, I'm up for it if anyone wants to learn how not to catch salmon and sea trout...I even have a stretch of river available where they are rumoured to appear, but as yet only brown trout have been caught by me.

Before we go off pop - I agree with what you are saying and thought of doing the same myself. I went into it quite deeply and discovered that you need insurance, a first aider, a 'risk assesment of the pegs/river banks and a police clearance certificate to show you're not a paedophile to name a few. While I will give my full backing to this scheme, please check into it or it could cost a lot of money.


Sorry to pour cold water on your enthusiasm.



fishing is nature's medical prescription

Not if you are just a group of mates getting together.

Used to be a proffesional guide (full time) but only guide the occaisional trip for money now.


Oi! Fatboy I will be beating my younger brother soon all right!

And thats my "non indicative opinion"!

Its not about teaching kids mate, I see it more of a social, a get-together, where we can all learn from each others' skills.


There's too much of this 'having a pop' at others because their choice of method or targetted species is different to theirs. This would provide the idea opportunity for bringing a little unity into it by sharing ideas/methods, etc.!


I've never used a pole, and probably never will, but if there was a teach-in, where several experienced pole users could guide and teach the rest of us, then I'd be up for it.

Great attitude mpbdsnu! That is certainly what I have thought it is all about.I have lost count of the times over the years I have known some one say they wouldnt like some branch of the sport or another only to really enjoy it once theyve had a go.

And thats my "non indicative opinion"!

I think we all could learn from this with a series of teach ins whether you are a AnglersNet member or not and let face it it would be a good day out or two with a bit of a laugh and you will come home learning something new.

I don't consider myself knowledgeable enough to run a teach-in (I just fish for fish, I'm not a specialist for eg), I would certainly be willing to help organise one and participate....
