August fishing blog…Lanzarote fishing at Costa Teguise

Fishing at Costa Teguise Lanzarote   I haven’t done much writing of late because I came to the point where I found that I was a bore to myself by repeating the same stuff over and over and sometimes over again but I have just returned from the family holiday and found the whole experience […]

West End Fishery “KJS”

Sometimes I fancy a blow out on a commercial lake, they have their uses as in they are good places for bait testing and they are good to blow the cobwebs away and give you a bit of a boost when things have been a bit tough. My good mate Dan Stewart Smith has been […]

A guest article by Ron Clay….Alderfen Carp Lake

ALDERFEN  CARP LAKE   By Ron Clay   Since I have already written a piece about Alderfen Fishery in general but as I had never fished the big carp lake,  I thought that I had better do something about that, as this particular lake is extremely attractive with its landscaped shoreline and stock of Leney’s […]

Carp Fishing…Using Method Feeder Rigs at The Delves!

Alderfen Fishery review (MATCH LAKE)

I like Alderfen, there is a lot to like about it, it is responsible for a lot of anglers getting a lot of personal bests, plus it is a rather good looking venue that is just starting to mature into its true self. I fished Alderfen with my good mate and fishing buddy Dan Stewart Smith at […]

A “Haven” for specimen Ide

I fancied catching a few Ide last summer and one place that has put itself on the map as far as Ide are concerned is the Haven Fishery in Doncaster, a quick call to the venue filled me in with all the details, the gates would open at 9am and be closed at 6pm and Sunday fishing finished […]

The lovely Ladybower

    So here I am  standing alone in the car park of Ladybower reservoir ticket office with my motley range of ancient fly rods and other bits and bobs slung over my shoulder, I have that giddy feeling in my guts…I think I am in for a good day Tina and Olivia have turned down the […]
