    Dubrovnik big game fishing

    I'm in Dubrovnik for a week, lots of big game angling boats. Anyone got experience or recommendations? Searched on Google and it appears to be 'inconclusive'. I'm not interested in tiddler bashing! Thanks in advance.

    Ebro catfishing

    I've recently returned from four days fishing for catfish on the Ebro in north-east Spain. I can highly recommend my host and guide Al Henderson, his expertise ensured that I got off the mark at the first time of asking and my incompetence in dealing with very big river catfish meant that I...

    Lake Windermere

    Once the river season closes planning on a few days close to Windermere. Sure I can sneak a lure rod and maybe a fly rod in the car. Internet a bit contradictory, some say that the whole of the lake is free fishing, some talk about day tickets. Any advice on target species? At the moment I'm...

    Mink cull

    Some more good news after the recent cormorant story. Mink being culled in Scotland after they 'devastate' rivers. I hope it is extended south. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-12323300

    Mr Whiskers has lost them

    Just sorting through some of my summer photos and noticed this odd looking barbel with just a couple of whiskers and a strange nose. Anyone know what's caused this? The river I caught it from hardly sees an angler from one day to the next so I doubt it was hook damaged as a tiddler.
