Getting Back to Basics

Due to work commitments my fishing has been limited to the odd day session here and there. I have decided to fish the farm pond whenever I can (see my post about small water carping for more information http://iansfishing.co.uk/carp/small-water-carping/). To make things a little more fun I have decided to use a centrepin coupled with a wagler float rather than the normal bolt rigs etc. […]

These are anglers that have influenced my Carp angling in a big way, some from the very start and some more recently. As you can probably guess at the top of this list is Julian Cundiff and in no particular order the other five […]

Short Session Carp Fishing

I am sure that like me most of you reading this blog have family and work commitments that mean you don’t get to fish as often as the big names you see in the magazines who are getting out there day in, day out, week after week. I am happy to admit that I am just a little obsessed by fishing and spend a lot […]

Another Successful Trip to Tyram Fisheries Syndicate

I arrived at the lake Thursday afternoon to find it completely empty. This has never happened before and quite frankly gave me too much choice! After an hour and a half of watching the water (and if I am honest I did not see one sign of a fish) I at long last decided on my swim. I was very tempted to go into the […]

A New Syndicate

  Well after lots and lots of searching and putting my name on various waiting lists (fingers crossed I will get an invite in the next couple of years to one of them!) I have finally joined a syndicate and have fallen in love with the place already. The fishery in question is Tyram Fisheries Syndicate near Doncaster which is roughly 77 miles from where […]

A Return to Fly Fishing

It has been quite a long time since I have done any serious bank fishing for Trout but last week I took the opportunity to get out and see if I could have a few. My casting was never the best and being rusty it took a little while practising on the field behind the lake before I was back into the swing of things […]

Selby 3 Lakes more Bream!

After what had seemed like an age (only a couple of weeks as my girlfriend keeps reminding me) it was time to head off to Selby 3 lakes for another 48hr session. So the car was packed and off I went and ¬†after an hour in the car I was pulling through the gates of the fishery. I met Roger in the car park and […]

First Visit to Selby 3 Lakes

Having followed Julian Cundiff for more years than I care to admit I finally had the chance to fish the Selby 3 Lakes complex which Jules had written so much about. I barrowed my mountain of gear around to my chosen peg which was the Oak tree swim. I really could have only chosen one peg that was further away from the car park but […]
