I've just added a few new products to the BFW Shop:
I haven't bought any new split shot for years and am just wondering if there's something that you guys use that doesn't damage the line too much? Is the modern stuff better that the old (but legal) stuff I'm using?
Also, I'm sure I've seen somewhere on social media something that looks like a...
I've recently finished a website refresh for long time friend/supporter of BFW, Richard, who runs the Haven on the Teme and also the stretch at Knightwick.
Here's the new website:
I love The Haven, I've spent some great weekends camping and fishing there...
I'd love to find a new tench lake close to home (Chippenham, Wiltshire). I used to fish Great Sommerfords but this has been taken over and converted into a carp syndicate in recent years :rolleyes:

Does anyone know of anywhere that does maggots/worms through the post?
I've just paid through the nose on Willy Worms (£6 delivery!!) to find the bag of maggots split inside the box on arrival. Very poor aftersales service without even offering to refund postage so I won't be using...
I'm planning on fishing locally with my boy next week for bits and bobs and need to buy some 3lb line that we can use for both ledgering and float fishing.
Does anyone have any recommendations please?
Just to let you know that I've upgraded the version of the software the website runs on (PHP). The last time I did this it caused a couple of issues with image upload on the forum. I've just tested it and it seems OK but if you spot any issues whilst using the website please let either...
