Morning all,

Just popped in to say Hello.

Am a returning maggot drowner after being away from the water for a few years.

Looking forward to the 16th as I'm not far from the Medway at Teston. (Teeston to us locals)


Anyway, happy fishing to all.

Yup.  Welcome to the forum.  Glad to have you with us.

I've only drowned a few maggots in my time due to them being in such short supply on this side of the pond (at least for fishing) but I had fun with those few and wished for more.

I've also left fishing for a time more than once but the returns were always great fun.
