Terry’s Travels A friendly invite
Opportunities to get out to sea have been rare recently, so this blog is about a past trip I had the pleasure to be involved in. I had invited my mates, Sid and Ross up to my neck of the woods for a crack at the Spurdog and Cuckoo Wrasse, two species that are not overly abundant around the waters of Cork.
Weather and tides were perfect, and we were soon over the Mackerel marks. A few bonus species showed whilst feathering for bait, including Codling and brightly co...
Well things have been pretty busy with work over the last few weeks, but with the river season open again now, I have been taking full advantage of the opportunity to patrol some of my local stretches of river in pursuit of some scaly warriors.
I have been baiting a couple of spots that have produced fish for me in the past, and though I have yet to spot any carp, the bait is getting cleared pretty regularly now, so it will soon be time to make a start. I have been baiting...
Canal Session....Nicky Howard
I have just finished a 48hr session on the canal at Stoke Prior Six mile lock. It is a great section of canal with a good head of carp to target. The area I chose to fish had lots of features with reeds, trees and brambles giving plenty of cover for the fish to move under. I had chosen to fish with Berkley Gulp Tuna and Spice in 16mm.
Once settled in my swim I spliced on a new leader with an inline lead, added a rig and then baited with 16mm tuna and spice. I used a PVA bag ...
Terry’s Travels.....Well actually Sid's travels this time
My good friend, Sidney Kennedy took an angling trip to Norway, I asked him to write a short blog on this adventure.

Terry’s Travels Contingency plan.....
This is just a quick blog to keep my hand in, as they say. I tried a new water this week in search of Tench, but having set up the STi bivvy, and committed the bucket of particles to the swim, the temperature dropped (not in the forecast!) and I knew straight away that my three day excursion would be dramatically cut short!
Unfortunately I was right, and apart from a few decent Roach that attacked my popped-up corn hook-baits, there is little else to mention. There...
Bound for France, part 2......Matt Groves
This is the second part of my "Bound for France" article (the first part is here: http://www.eu.purefishing.com/blogs/uk/james-vincent-2/2013/04/16/1665/) and so I will assume you've read that one, and are ready to start digging into a little more detail…
I hope you found the spreadsheet of some use, without it my last 2 trips would have been much harder to plan, please feel free to offer feedback if you've used it!
I got back from my holiday a couple of weeks ago and onc...
White Springs in June....Chris Raftery
White Springs June 2013
Took a trip to white springs for a week’s fishing with a few mates. What a surprise we got when we arrived, weather was unbelievably hot and to make matters worse the carp were spawning like crazy. Found a nice double swim this covered a large amount of water and an island out in front. All rods were set out in conjunction with pineapple fever boilies and my own prepared particle mix. I had no action for the first two days. At about 0330 on the third ...
I and my good lady wife decided to have a few days away in our touring caravan. I am not one to miss a chance to wet a line. So I scanned the internet and found something that looked ideal. The venue was to be Cobbleacres Lakes located on the doorstep of Norwich. We arrived tea time on Sunday with six days of fishing and relaxing to look forward to. We sorted the van out and pitched the awning, after a well-earned can of beer we walked around the lakes to get a feel for the p...
A busy overnighter - Jonny Molesworth
My tiresome summer exams were finally over and the warmer weather was (finally!) making an appearance. With a week or so to spare before heading off for a week of pure sea angling down in South Devon, I was eager to squeeze in some carping. A last minute decision on a balmy evening had me heading off to fish an overnighter on the specimen lake down at the local gravel pits; a venue I hadn’t fished in months.
Getting down there at around 7pm and after a scout around the wat...
On the Red......Ryan Brown
Hi it has been a long time since my last article and a lot has happened since then. I have been out most weekends and a couple of afternoon sessions and have had quite a bit of luck. Now the weather is warming up I have been introducing more bait into the lakes using the ever faithful red crustacean!! This has resulted in a couple of great results, not getting into the big fish but some lovely Cambridgeshire Carp as you can see in the pictures below.
As I men...
