There have been quite a few fishing games available on the market but before Dovetail Games released Euro Fishing on PC and Xbox the vast majority seemed to concentrate on lure fishing for Bass. Today came the announcement that Euro Fishing will be available on PlayStation 4 on the 11th of April and is available to pre-order now, if you do so you will receive […]

Carp Fishing is a Dangerous Sport

It has now been three weeks since I managed to fall into a freezing cold lake. Whilst I try to keep the majority of my blog posts light hearted and not too serious I have come to realise that things could have turned out a lot worse. So here are a few of my top tips just in case you are prone to the odd […]

Support your local tackle shop

So you may be wondering why I would write a blog about this when there are loads of bargains to be had out there on the World Wide Web! At this point I am going to be honest and say yes I do use the internet and order online but hand on heart I think that 95% of my purchases are from two local tackle […]

Surely it can’t be another blank!

Most of my family and friends think I am completely mad when it comes to fishing and arriving at the syndicate at just before six in complete darkness does tend to make me agree with them! I could not believe that it was a barmy six degrees at this time in the morning in January. My hopes were high as they always are and I […]

Last few sessions of 2016

I managed 48 hour sessions in October, November and December, I also managed to blank on all 3 sessions. The first session I opted to fish Pads again which was a mistake as I had seen fish in a swim just along the bank from Pads but still opted to go in my favourite swim. This was mainly because I got to the lake late […]

Aqua Products Bedchair cover

Following on from my review of the Nash sleep system I thought it only right to do a full review of my bedchair cover. I have had this one for about 5 years which goes to show just how well made it is. Made out of the now legendary Aquatexx material with a poly cotton quilting; in layman’s terms this means that it is 100% waterproof, […]

Fishing Doldrums

Maybe just maybe the title of this Blog post is a little on the dramatic side but 2 months without getting on the bank is driving me a little stir crazy. I had no free time in August due to work and family commitments. I know I could have done an overnight session here and there. Whilst we are talking about overnight sessions just what […]

Nash Fang X and Twister hooks review

If you have read my earlier post about My Golden Rules of Carp fishing you will know that I believe a sharp hook is of great importance. I think that hook choice is a very personal thing and I would say that it has a lot to do with confidence more than anything else. As for pattern choice my general rule of thumb is Fang […]

A couple more Carp from the syndicate

Another trip to Selby and guess which swim i went in? Yes the same one again but to be fair in my mind I was planning on fishing a different swim as I travelled to the lake. Unfortunately it was already taken and as I spotted 6 different fish in front of my favourite swim it seemed rude not to fish it. It did not […]

My Golden Rules of Carp Fishing

have five things that I feel I must get right to be in with a chance of catching a Carp or in fact any type of fish that I am targeting be it Carp, Barbel or Pike.  In reality what getting these things correct gives me is confidence and being confident means that I fish 100% better then when my head is full of little […]
