PAUL's COARSE FISHING DIARY
05.01.07 - Wood Lane Farm Fishery, Iver, Buckinghamshire.
After all the excesses of Christmas and New Year, Jim, Connor and I decided to clear our heads and get in an afternoons fishing at Wood Lane Farm Fishery, situated in Iver, Buckinghamshire.
25.10.06 - Thorpe Lea, Surrey.
Regular readers of my diary pages and the Fish South East Fishing Forum will know that for some time now I have been itching to try some carp fishing at Thorpe Lea in Surrey, a venue in Surrey renowned for its huge stock of fast growing carp and as a quality "bagging" water. Anywhere with "easy fishing" suits me to a tee !!
13.10.06 - Lizard Fisheries, Middlesex.
An afternoon session at my "local" Lizard Fishery tempted Jim and I on a reasonably mild, early October afternoon.
Lizard wasn't really on it's best form and we both found the fishing hard going, despite some early success for me in the shape of a quality looking common carp just shy of the 10lb mark.
There were few signs of fish being caught by the handful of fisherman at Lizard and when the roach and rudd aren't in feeding mood, you just know things are going to be tough.
A couple of skimmers and roach were the only reward over the next couple of hours, followed late on by another good condition common carp which weighed in at 9lb, which is a decent enough fish for lake 1 at Lizard Fisheries.
So, like so many of my fishing adventures, an OK day with a couple of nice fish despite the fishing being generally hard going.
If you would like to submit an item for the diary [such as a tackle fare, your clubs match dates etc] or you would like to comment on my attempts at fishing, please send them to Fish South East via the contact page.
10.09.06 - Gold Valley, Aldershot.
The weather man was right for a change ! Highs of 27 deg c were on the cards and I felt like another fishing trip coming on. I knew jenny would need little or no persuasion to sit in the sun for afew hours and I desperately need to redeem myself after my woeful performance at Lizard last week. [See diary 07-09-06]
07-09-06 Lizard Fishery, Lake 2 - Middlesex.
I decided that working too hard makes Paul a dull boy and gave myself the afternoon off. I was meeting up with Steve, an old work buddy of mine who is an avid carp angler. Last time we went fishing, neither of us got a bite all day so we were determined to set the record straight.
Partly due to an email I recently received from Nigel laughton, who had enjoyed an excellent days fishing there a week or so ago, I decided to show Steve the delights of Lizard Fishery. As I hadn't fished on Lake 2 for some time we decided that we would try for some of the larger carp at Lizard.
We met just after midday and bagged two swims on lake 2. This wasn't difficult as there was only one other guy fishing. Steve set up his two rods, bait alarms, pods etc etc and I set up my one rod, no bait alarms, pods etc. It probably isn't too difficult to guess who had the better day !!
The fishing was slow and neither of us got a take for the first hour or so. Then I heard the unmistakable sound of Steve's bite indicator going off and he was soon playing his first fish of the day...which turned out to be his best....a 14lb common.
Enthused by this success we both thought this was the start of something good. Well for Steve it was. He caught 4 carp and one tench which weighed in at a credible 4lb. I caught..........1 skimmer.
I'll let the pictures of Steve tell the rest of the story as I'm too depressed to say any more !!
21.07.06 - Gold Valley, Aldershot.
Phew what a scorcher !! Although the record breaking weather of earlier in the week had given way to slightly more bearable conditions, the thermometer in the car still read 31 deg c as we headed down the M3 to Gold Valley in Aldershot, Hants. We debated the effect that the recent hot weather would have on the fishing and expected that things could be quite tough going.
05.07.06 - Wood Lane Farm.
Its always a pleasure to try out a brand new fishery. That sense of the unknown just adds to the excitement you already feel when going fishing. Well that was definitely the case today. Jenny had spied a sign to Wood Lane Farm Fishery on her way back from work one day and had been suggesting we try it for some weeks now. Then funnily enough, Nigel Laughton [check his pics out in the gallery] sent Fish South East an email explaining about Wood Lane Farm and the fishing on offer there.
24.06.06 - Manor Farm.
Despite still suffering the effects of a chest infection and subsequent muscle strain from coughing so much [god I'm getting old !!] I was determined to get out of the house, get some fun on my face and hopefully catch some fish. I decided to hook up with my mate Steve at his "local" venue, Manor Farm in Bedfordshire.
12.05.06 - Gaywoods Fishery.
Definitely been working too hard lately and not doing enough fishing, so when Jim rang and suggested a day out...well what could I say. This particular Friday was one of the warmest days of the year so far, so not only did I think the fish would be up for a bit of a feed, but I figured if they weren't then at least I could get the tan going.
14.04.06 - Lizard Fisheries.
Bank holiday Friday and why am I surprised that it's raining. Undaunted, Jim, Connor and I headed to Lizard Fisheries in Cowley, Middx, hoping that the warmer weather of late would have brought the fish onto feed. We obviously weren't the only ones to be thinking the same thing - lake 1 was pretty full when we arrived so we had to settle for the only swim left which the three of us tried to share. There seemed to be quite a few fish being caught so things were lookimg good.
09.03.06 - Hemp Fishing at Lizard.
The arctic weather of recent weeks has given way [finally] to much more familiar British weather, wind and rain !! And boy did it rain today !!
19.02.06 - Farlows Main Lake.
Regular readers of my diary page will know that I have been on a somewhat desperate mission to catch my first ever pike this winter [and no doubt getting fed up with my lack of sucess!!]. My recent appeal to the nation for "any help available" in my quest was answered by two kind souls, John and Tom.
11.02.06 - Lizard Fisheries.
Never before have I had to break the ice at a venue before attempting to fish [shows what a fair-weather angler I am], so today was a novel, if not rather chilly experience for me. I hadn't even considered that Lizard would be frozen when I arrived at about 11.00am. I was tempted to head straight home agian but having spoken to the only other soul fishing who told me that the fish were deifnitely feeding, I decided to give it a go.
14.01.06 - The River Colne.
Those of you who have read these diary pages before will know that this winter I set myself a target of catching my first ever pike. I have failed miserably on my last two attempts at Bury Hill Fisheries so I was hoping for third time lucky !!
04.12.05 - Lizard Fisheries, Middlesex.
My planned pike fishing trip to Bury Hill Fisheries failed to materialise, largely due to my inability to get up early enough. Guess it will wait !! So, I settled instead for a few hours at Lizard Fisheries in Cowley, Middx. Not having fished since the end of October, I was well up for it.
The weather was a cool 7deg c, overcast but generally calm. I knew the carp wouldn't be "having it" so I planned to target the many roach and rudd at Lizard. Armed with a pint of the wriggly fellows, I arrived about midday and chose a swim on the far bank. The only other anglers brave [or stupid] enough to also be on the bank were a few old timers who seemd to be having little success.
012.12.05 - The Elusive Predator [part 2].
My long awaited trip in search of the elusive pike finally became a reality today. After several aborted attempts I was up at the crack of dawn [for a change] and Jim and I were soon speeding down the A3 from London to Surrey. Choice of venue, the picturesque Bury Hill Fisheries in Dorking, well known as one of the best pike and zander waters in the South of England.
We had phoned ahead and reserved a boat, which as it turned out was not strictly necessary. Surprisingly on a cold mid-December day we were the only hardy fools wanting to hire a boat. In fact there were only 3 other pople fishing at all !! It was strange to see Bury Hill virtually deserted but kind of nice to have the lake almost to ourselves.
22.10.05 - Lizard Fisheries, Middlesex.
The best of the weather has certainly deserted us by now and with it I fear, the best of this years fishing.
11.10.05 - Gold Valley, Aldershot.
Another trip to Gold Valley in search of beating my PB [15lb common carp] before the winter months set in...and more importantly, trying to beat Jenny's PB [15lb 8oz common carp]. Neither of us could beat these weights although Gold Valley again offered some excellent sport, particularly later on in the day. A dozen carp to 12lb 8oz, a bream of about 4lb and two stonking perch to about 1lb 10oz were the results of pop-up boilies fished using the method feeder and waggler fished halibut pellets in the margins later in the day. I'll let the pictures speak for themeselves.
25.09.05 - Gold Valley, Aldershot.
After my thrashing of Jim at Lizard the previous Friday, I was full of confidence as Jenny and I headed south down to Gold Valley in Aldershot. After taking advantage of the on-site tackle/bait shop and the cafe we settled for a swim at the far end of Gold Lake, the main lake at Gold Valley that holds the biggest carp.
23.09.05 - Lizard Fisheries, Middlesex.
Jim and I decided it was about time we did battle once more on the fishing front and we duly headed off to Lizard Fisheries in Middlesex. We arrived about 10:30 and chose a swim near the carpark. The wind was blowing towards this end and we figured that the fish would be drawn in this direction....and of course we couldn't be bothered to walk any further. Armed with a selection of baits including meat, corn, pellets and worms we both adopted a waggler approach. It was a dull, overcast day. There was little sign of fish feeding near the surface and we reckoned the overcast, coolish conditions would mean the fish were feeding on or near the bottom.
11.09.05 - Royal Berkshire Fisheries, Berkshire.
So we are into September and I have been reading alot recently about this being the month when carp really come onto feed big time. The hot summer days have given way to cooler conditions and the carp stock up on food before their winter lay-off. Well, the carp at Royal Berkshire Fisheries obviously had not been reading the same articles I had.
14.08.05 - Twynersh Fishing Complex, Surrey.
What better way to finish off my 40th Birthday weekend than a few hours fishing at the renowned Twynersh Fishery near Chertsey, Surrey. After a later start than usual [it's never that early at the best of times], we arrived at Twynersh at about 2pm. Pit 1 seemed strangely quiet and as the owner later explained that some anglers had already gone home, we were not overly confident. The weather was slightly overcast but on the mild side [about 20deg c] with a brisk westerly wind blowing across the lake. We chose a swim near the car park end with the wind blowing towards it as I have always read that fish tend to follow the direction of the wind.
30.07.05 - Gold Valley.
Gold Valley in Aldershot was the venue for the inaugral Fish South East mixed doubles challenge. [Actually it was just another day out fishing with some great friends of ours, a bottle or two of wine, a few cold beers and some munchies.] Three teams took part in this years challenge. Here's how we got on:
25.07.05 - Cotswold Water Park, Gloucestershire.
If you are after peace, relaxation and free fishing on virtually unfished lakes, you could do alot worse than get yourselves down to the Cotswold Water Park, near Cirencester in Gloucestershire. Thats exactly what Jenny and I did last weekend! Urgently in need of some R & R we booked into Costwold Willow Pool for a couple of nights to re-charge the batteries....and of course to do some fishing!!!
17.07.05 - Gold Valley, Aldershot.
Gold Valley in Aldershot is a 6 lake coarse fishing venue that had been recommended to me by two seperate people who maintained that the fishing is quite easy there. That was all I needed to here so Jenny and I set off there on another gloriously hot summer's day. The Lakes are about an hours drive from where we live in West London and we were both full of anticipation and hope as we made our way there - well, I was anyway.
10.07.05 - Thames, Runnymede.
What a gloriously hot summer's day. Probably more suited to sun-bathing than fishing but decided to try a bit of river fishing for a change. I had read recently that the stretch of The River Thames at Runnymede is a good roach and dace venue and is also noted for some decent barbel and chub and even the odd big carp. The river bank was absolutely packed when we got there....not just with anglers but with sun-worshippers.
03.07.05 - Lizard Fisheries, Middlesex.
Date - Sunday 3rd July 05, Weather - overcast, about 20 deg c, physical state - severely hungover!!
21.06.05 - Lizard Fisheries, Middlesex.
Took the day off work supposedly to wait for the gas man to service our boiler, but really that was just an excuse to sneak in an extra days fishing at my local venue which is nearly impossible to get on at the weekend [especially if, like me, you don't like getting up with the lark]. The temperatures were down slightly on the weekend although still bloomin' hot although a gentle south westerly breeze kept the edge off, so I felt confident that the fish would be in a feeding frenzy.
About an hour into the session, I hooked into what felt like a pretty decent fish. It wasn't fighting really hard but I had to be careful as I was only using 4lb line. The fish soon succumbed to my superior fishing skills [yeah right !!] and the result was a fine 10lb 8oz mirror. [Yeah, I know the picture makes it look smaller - it doesn't exactly flatter me much either. Think I'll keep my shirt on next time].
So, one of my more succesful days of late. I knew that Lizard wouldn't let me down although, believe me, the fishing can be a lot better than that when it really gets going. Nor being a carp specialist or ever bothering to weigh the fish I caught, I reckon that 11lb could well be PB for me. A most satisying day.
18.06.05 - Twynersh Fishery, Surrey.
Decided to try Twynersh Fishery in Surrey again despite mixed success there two weeks ago. The weather was outstanding - the thermometer in the car read 30 deg c as we headed down to Surrey and I'm sure it got hotter while we were there. Great weather for sun worshippers, but not you may think for fishermen.
The hot weather combined with the lack of success meant that many people packed up and headed home mid-afternoon, whcih meant that swims were now available on lake 1. We didn't have to wait long for a bit of action. Small roach, rudd and skimmers were soon taking our offerings and then Jenny hooked into a nice tench about 1lb 8oz. Almost immediately I landed a tench about 2lb 8oz with a couple more smaller ones following quickly. All fell to chocolate boilies fished with the method feeder. There was no sign of any carp being caught at all on any of the lakes - too hot I guess !!
13.06.05 - Royal Berkshire Fishery, Berkshire.
Royal Berkshire Fishery has a reputation as a decent enough mixed coarse fishing venue although the last few times I have fished there, results have not exactly been brilliant. Time to give it another go I thought. The weather was slightly disappointing for early June, overcast and decidedly chilly. Taking the advice of the bailiff, Jenny and I decided to fish Lake 2, a lake we have not fished before. Fishing a waggler up in the water, alternating between corn, luncheon meat and banded pellet as bait, things started slowly with small roach and skimmers all to show for our efforts.
We decide to move swim, chosing a corner swim with some enviting lilly pads to one side which looked like it may well hold cover for some decent fish. Immediately, we started to catch slightly bigger fish, rudd and skimmers mainly up to about 8oz. We continued to catch regularly, mainly on corn, but failed to tempt any fish of note apart from the bream of about 2lb that Jenny landed.
04.06.05 - Twynersh Fishery, Surrey.
Having had mixed success on my last few fishing trips, I was determined to try a location that I had not fished before and one that I knew could produce some excellent sport on the right day. After conduction some research, I settled for Twynersh Fishing Complex, an 8 lake coarse fishing complex just outside Chertsey in Surrey. I rang the owner, Paul, for directions and advice on bait and tactics before setting off, again rather late in the day thanks to a very late night courtesy of Jenny and our friends Paul and Jenny. Initial impressions were excllent as we entered the venue, with plenty of others fishing and the venue looking in first class condition. Twynersh makes you think you are in the heart of the countryside with plenty of wildlife around even though you are only just outside London.
13.05.05 - Spring at Lizard Fisheries.
What better to do with a well earned day off work than switch off the mobile and head for my local water, Lizard Fisheries in Cowley, Middlesex. After another leisurely start to the day [not that the lie in did much for the bags under my eyes] we got to the venue about midday. Things started poorly though as I realised I had left my tackle box at home so after another trip to the tackle shop to pick up some accessories, we finally settled down to some fishing about 1pm.
03.05.05 - Earlswood Lakes, Earlswood, West Midlands.
Visiting the parents in Birmingham offered the opportunity to try out one of the West Midlands premier fisheries, Earlswood Lakes set in pleasant wooded countryside next to the village of Earlswood to the south of Solihull. This venue consists of three lakes and is widely recognised as the finest of its type in the Midlands and one of the leading fisheries in the UK. After a leisurely start, we arrived about midday. The weather was warm and overcast, excellent fishing conditions you may think.
The place was packed which I took as an encouraging sign. It soon became apparent however that the many anglers on the water were having little luck on what is renowned as an excellent carp and bream bag-up water. Un-daunted, we set up at the far end of the main lake choosing to fish a feeder with white chocolate boilies on a hair rig which are rumoured to be the bait of choice at Earlswood. The fish just weren't feeding sadly despite trying many other baits such as sweetcorn, pellet, maggot and luncheon meat. I did manage to catch 2 decent bream about 3lb each which meant the day wasn't a complete wash-out.
However, my parents, Jenny and I had a great day at this stunning location and I will definitely give it another go soon.
03.04.05 - Lizard Fisheries.
After a very late start I headed off for my first taste of Lizard Fisheries in 2005. By the time I got there, Lake 1 was pretty full so I had little choice but to fish a swim I wouldn't normally choose, at the far east end of the lake. Alternating between waggler fished luncheon meat and banded pellet, things started fairly slowly, only manging a small skimmer of about 6oz in the first hour.
28.03.05 - Bury Hill Fisheries.
Easter Bank Holiday monday and it's not raining. In fact it was a beautiful day and surely the fish at Bury Hill [see venues - Surrey] would offer some excellent sport. I had phoned the day before and pre-booked two of their boats that can be rented for £5.50 pp, so we [myself, Jenny, Jim and Connor] were all set for a day messing about on the water. Bury Hill main lake has a section called "The Jungle" which can only be fished from a boat so we headed straight for this spot. Things started promisingly as Jim and I both hooked into decent carp, sadly only to loose them. Despite trying various baits [pellet, corn, boilies, luncheon meat], that was about all for the morning session as the fish refused to play the game. From what we could see, no one else was doing much better.
20.03.05 - Royal Berkshire Fishery.
The glorious spring weather of the last few days tempted me and Jenny to try out Royal Berkshire Fishery [see venues - Berkshire,] which is just outside Windsor, Berkshire. The hot weather sadly deserted us and the many other anglers hoping for some early season sport. The fish were sadly lacking too with very few fish being caught. That is apart from my better half, Jenny who caught a fine 10lb common carp on her first cast. Using a single grain of corn on a size 18 hook with 4lb line, the fish took some landing but was well worth the ticket price in itself. Jenny certainly put all the other fishermen to shame today - her fish would have been good enough for 3rd place in a match that was taking place on Lake 3.
Hopefully this will encourage a few more fishing trips for us both this year - it surely has to be better than watching the Eastenders omnibus edition on a Sunday afternoon.
06.02.05 - Farlows Lake - Another Stab.
After my usuccessful attempt at pike fishing at Farlows Lake [see Venues-Buckinghamshire] in December, I thought it was time for another stab at conquering what is known as a decent carp and match fishing venue right next to the M25 in Buckinghamshire. The morning was sunny, still and about 10 deg. I headed for the match lake and set up two rods, one feeder fishing at long range and the other waggler fishing close in, both using red maggots as hook bait, which I had been reliably informed was the bait of the moment. Sadly this proved not to be the case, as both rods failed to catch, well apart from the perch I caught just before packing up. And that was so small it wouldn't have registered on the most sensitive of scales.
31.12.04 - Farlows Lake - The elusive predator.
I've been itching to try some Pike fishing for some time now, never having been before. I'd read that Farlows Lake in Buckinghamshire [ see my Venues - Buckinghamshire page, ] holds a good head of pike on both the main lake and the match lake, and with it being fairly local, it seemed an excellent choice.
15.12.04 - Winter at Lizard Fisheries
What better to do with a day off work than freeze my jacobs off trying to catch fish!! Its been almost three months since my last fishing trip so I was full of anticipation as I set off for Lizard Fisheries in Cowley, Middlesex [ See Venues - Greater London ].The temperature was a little up on recently (about 10 deg), overcast initially with very little breeze so I thought the fishing could possibly be quite good. I began to think again when I arrived and was the only soul brave enough (or mad enough) to be out fishing. Using a medium waggler and red maggots brought some success with 6 roach about 3-4oz each and a perch about 8oz. The carp were obviously not feeding and pellets failed to tempt them. I know why fish generally don't feed as much in the colder months, but it doesn't half piss me off sometimes. Anyway, not a complete disaster of a day...and it beats work anytime. Until next time....happy fishing.
27.09.04 - Lizard Fisheries
Almost a month since I last went fishing so I decided to take a day off work and check out my "local", Lizard Fisheries [ see venues - Greater London ]. The weather was overcast, a mild 17 deg c with a gentle South Westerly breeze - ideal fishing conditions I thought.
29.08.04 - The Colne, Yiewsley
Bank holiday Sunday....and it's not raining.... so set off for a spot of river fishing for a change. Decided to try the River Colne at Yiewsley. The river there is shallow and has a combination of swims ranging from very shallow fast moving water to slower, deeper channels. There is also a fairly large lake rumoured to hold some good Carp and Tench. The river and lake can all be fished for £3 per rod per day.
I drew a blank on the lake but caught quite a few Dace and Perch on the river. Although all were fairly small, I was quite happy trotting down the river on light tackle...and fishing with maggots for a change. It brought back happy memories of fishing in Devon when I was a kid....with lake Carp fishing so predominant these days it was good to get back to some good old-fashioned river fishing. This stretch of the Colne is noted for some reasonable Barbel and Chub so give it a go....at £3 per day, what have you got to lose.
The river and lake are both located on Old Mill Lane, Yiewsley. Some parking is available and tickets are sold on the bank.
15.08.04 - Durgan, Cornwall
A slight departure from the coarse fishing theme as Jenny and I set off last week for Cornwall and a spot of sea fishing. We were staying with our good mate Jim and his son Connor in the tiny fishing hamlet of Durgan on the Helford River, just south of Falmouth. What a delightful spot, not only for fishing but sailing, swimming, messing about on the water and generally taking it easy and re-charging the batteries. Having hired a small motor boat from the nearby
Helford Passage and armed with a load of sand eels and lug worms we set off not really knowing what we could expect to catch. Several mackerel were the first fish caught and then between us we caught a Pollock, loads of Wrasse and assorted weird and wonderul species that we are still are unable to name. Never having been sea fishing before I was to be convinced of its merits - needless to say I can't wait until next year. Many thanks to Jim and Connor for a superb week and brilliant company. Sadly back to work tomorrow, but with some wonderful memories.
08.08.04 - Perch at Lizard Fisheries
Took advantage of the Mrs. going shopping and headed off for Lizard Fisheries. The lake I usually fish was full (serves me right for getting up late) so for the first time I thought I would try Lake 2 which is reported to hold much bigger fish than Lake 1. Unfortunately, the carp were not feeding (my excuse for not catching any) but I caught loads of small Perch up to about 1/2lb. The weather was dry but very hot and humid. [ See Venues - Greater London ]
29.07.04 - Royal Berkshire Fisheries
Royal Berkshire Fisheries, near Windsor [ see Venues - Berkshire ] was the venue of choice for Sunday 25th July. I dragged my unfortunate better half along with me who enjoys fishing...if she catches something and the weather is sunny and over 25 deg. The weather was OK but the fishing was slow. Half a dozen skimmers and a few small roach were all that was on offer. The carp seemed loathe to feed apart from the one that pulled my rod in. Just about rescued the rod (it was very close) but lost the carp. I've certainly had livelier sessions at this venue before. Anyway it was all too much for Jenny...as you can see. Have you had any experiences of Royal Berkshire Fisheries? Good or bad, let me know. Just nip over to my contact page.
22.07.04 - Blanking at Bedfont
My first fishing trip for nearly a month. My mate Jim wanted to try a bit of pike fishing so we decided to try Bedfont Lake in Feltham [ see Venues - greater London ] which allegedly contains Pike as well as good numbers of Carp, Bream etc. We were full of optimism....unfortunately this did not last long.
Neither of us had a bite in 5 hours fishing and the other brave soles fishing faired little better. According to one guy I spoke to the lake fished well some years ago although it has been overrun with weed and not well maintained. At least Jim's good sense of humour kept me going. His Avid Merrion
impressions are first rate - shut up Stephen!! If anyone has any recent experiences (either good or bad) of Bedfont Lake please let me know via the contact page.
13.07.04 - Fish South East up and running!!
The wait is over....fishsoutheast is finally up and running...at last !! I put this site together partly for a HTML web site design course I am taking but I was also driven by the desire to see a simple web site that provides all the information coarse anglers need to go fishing in the South East of England. I hope you enjoy it !! Your comments on the design and content of the site as well as anything else you feel like letting off steam about are more than welcome. Just visit the contact page.
That's me...on one of my more successful fishing trips.
I first started fishing with my two brothers (Tim and Bill) when we lived in Exeter, Devon. God that was over 20 years ago !! Most of our fishing was on a small tributary of the Rive Exe called "The Leat", trotting with light tackle for small silver fish, mostly dace, roach, and the odd trout. We also made the occasional ventures onto the Exe itself , Exeter Canal and a beautiful reservoir called Squabmoor. To say we were obsessed with fishing would be a major understatement. If we weren't actually fishing, we were talking about it, reading about it or planning our next fishing trip. Happy days !!
Although I hardly picked up a fishing rod for 20 years, I always fancied giving it another go and last year I finally got round to it. All those feelings of excitement, heading off for a days fishing and first feeling the tug of a fish on the line soon came flooding back. Guess I'm hooked again.
Now living in Ealing, West London this site is for those of you, like me, who want to know the best places to fish in the South East of England. So, enjoy the site, enjoy your fishing and as they used to say in the West Country...."tight lines".
