  • We are now firmly into our second national lockdown of the year. Unlike the first lockdown fishing has been given the green light this time around under certain guidelines. With non-essential travel and long journeys being discouraged a lot of people can no longer just go to any venue they fancy fishing or would normally fish but this doesn’t mean you can’t go fishing. Many of us will have access to stretches of river or canal within a fairly close proximity to where we live and sometimes these are even within walking distance, perfect alternative venues to anyone who can no longer travel to fish.

  • I’ve always been one that loves the change in seasons here in England, there’s something about a crisp, sunny Autumnal morning that I really love and it always leads to a change in the way I go about my fishing. Ditching the surface gear and concentrating on putting a bed of bait down and trying to tempt a few decent fish before winter sets in, Novermber 2017 was one of those months where everything went my way. With frost most nights and bright days, the fish just seemed to love it and I was only managing one day a week at the time, or an extra half day if I was lucky.
