Bread Head

Great article in the latest edition of Total Coarse Fishing, on the Wensum with a loaf of bread.

Fishing liquidised bread in a feeder and punch on the hook it was good to go back to basics and the results speak for themselves.

To control the spread of the OTTER

The OTTER is quickly spreading across the country and as they travel, they are killing coarse fish. many of these are large carp costing thousands of pounds, that many anglers look forward to having the chance to catch. Many fisheries are suffering huge losses due to the Otter. After killing the fish,they eat the area around the organs then leave the rest of the fish. Then move on to the next fish.Anglers pay yearly to be allowed to fish to the E.A. as well as putting a lot of money into the economy. We want the Government to address this problem and allow fisheries to cull Otters

Stop Illegal Fish Thefts!

Responsible department: Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
I'm asking for your support to get DEFRA to take greater action to prevent the Illegal theft of fish from waters, particularly but not confined to the Fenland/East Anglia regions. For some time now organised gangs have used all manner of illegal methods to target native fish stocks, including the use of set lines, trawl nets and other such illegal boating activities. The ecological balance of many fenland waters have already been critically damaged, this is also having a financial effect on those whose livelyhoods depends on the tourist & sport fishing trades. The laws to prevent such actions are already in place, they just need stronger policing & heavier penalties on conviction. Please support this petition, before our waters are ruined forever. Thank You.

Happy New Year

Firstly a big apology for not posting much in the last few weeks, with so much on my plate its been the last thing on my mind.

OK so lets put that right, firstly a very happy and prosperous new year to each and everyone who reads my blog.

Had a few fishing sessions so far in the new year, managed a few perch and skimmers last week at a local lake just a few hundreds yard from our front door, then today its been great to be out with Ginger Tommy and Lady T. We decided a spot of piking was in order so just like the good old days we met at first light, my brief was the tackle and bait and Tom sorted the bacon and sausage baps, Lady T sorted out what ever ladies sort out!!!! and Ginger was the gillie for the day.

First blood went to lady T

Pike fishing made easy for us with the Korum Snapper Range, simply open the packet tie a knot and you are ready to fish, we used a mixture of live and deadbaits with more runs coming to the lives but better fish to the deads.

Tom is a bit unsure as pike have big teeth so was thankful our gillie was on hand to take the hooks out, especially when this superb fish well into double figures picked up his bait.

We packed in just before dark after over 30 runs and 26 pike landed and had a cracking day.

Doing a magazine feature tomorrow, hopefully a good session on the chop worm
