The bit you should read.

I’ve always been an angler and after around the country moving I wanted to discover and document the best places to fish (where ever I might be) in the way of rivers, lakes, canals and ponds. When previously fishing in South Wales I often fished in club and winter league matches, however living up north presented me with new challenges, venues and angling clubs that I acquainted myself with. Now down in the South West I plan to do the same.

This fishing blog details my angling adventures around the UK (although depending where I am in the country I also sea fish from both Boat and Shore, Carp, Pike and Fly fish). I will be giving a summary of 3 values considered by most anglers as well as the additional Disabled Access rating. Since being diagnosed with CIDP and regaining my motor function Disabled angling and Disabled access is now something I always consider when visiting venues. They will all be rated on a scale of 1* to 5*;

1. Fishability *****

2. Accessability *****

3. Value for Money *****

4. Disabled Access *****

I think these 4 points are the key issues which are readily identifiable with all anglers. Feel free to take a look and add your own comments along the way!

Trip #27 - Non Go Bye Farm - Bottom Lake (2nd Visit)

Easter weekend had arrived and the weather was not living up to my expectations. My brother had arrived and I had promised to take get him out on the bank at least once while he visited. Although Yorkshire has a whole multitude of venues to choose from I wanted a reliable one where I knew fish were going to be caught no matter what the weather was going to throw at us. With that in mind we ventured out as soon as the torrential rain had stopped, packed the car and headed for None Go Bye Farm.

Lots of work has been carried out on the main island.

Crayfish Questionaire

I've been asked by an academic from the University of Leeds to help get anglers to answer a questionnaire about how Crayfish can and have affected angling venues. Please read the below information and give the questionnaire a whirl. It would be greatly appreciated. Theres also the possibility of getting a few quid!

Trip #26 - Kippax Park, Rainbow Lake.

Kippax Park Lakes have featured quite heavily in the press over the last 6 months, and I have read accounts of good weights coming from both Lapwing and Skylark lakes. So with that in mind, I thought it about time that I get round to trying all the lakes on the complex for myself. As they are also partly owned by Leeds DASA it would also mean a cheaper session than on some other commercials in the area. Setting off, rigs tied and car packed I was expecting a carp filled day out on a busy and promising fishery.
