Hello there, due to kids turning into teens and a change in work circumstances I have found the time to come back to fishing. I actually live next to the Grand Union Canal in Harefield so have caught a few carp and pike outside my front door to keep my hand in but I’ve decided that river fishing is more for me. Before I temporarily put away my gear about 4 years ago I was a keen carp angler, but the appeal of a 48 hour session taking a barrow full of stuff has worn off and walking a river with the minimum necessary is much more appealing. I’ve been reading this forum for the last few weeks and have learnt a great deal, so this weekend I decided to join and next week I shall hopefully be joining Uxbridge Rovers. Cheers!
