    Aldi Fishing Gear

    Been down to Aldi today and had a look and came away with the Green Fishing Holdall / bag which for £12.99 is a no brainer perfect for roving around, light and loads of space. Now the Green Neoprene Boots,tried a pair on to my surprise they were immediately very comfortable but very heavy...

    Warwickshire Avon barbel

    The Roach fishing on our bit of WA is taking precedence over the Barbel at the moment and there have been some very good catches of them in certain swims ! Graham was fishing with me last Friday and he was bashing out the Roach whilst i was blanking on the Barbel ! We have plenty of pictures on...

    Tench 2016 - 2018 and counting ......

    Hi Guys, Thinking of buying a Drennan Acolyte 15ft Plus for Tench on the Float as my Drennan Tench at 12'9 struggles a bit in the deep water i fish ! Anybody use one ? Dave

    I have ordered some different hooks as you guys have recommended and will try them out on my next visit and see if they make any difference. I do foul hook some of the average size fish and usually land them also some nice Trout fairly hooked that stay on despite their aerobatics ! Maybe most...

    Yes i was wondering about the action of the rod ! I'm using a 14ft Drennan Acolyte Ultra which i thought would be perfect ? These fish are in quite fast water and maybe i need to be a bit more forceful with them as they seem to come off quite quickly ?
