From: colinj :
   North Suffolk Anglers are reeling this week over news that a second low 20's Carp has come from Oulton Broad, This time the 22lb fish fell to floatfished Lobworm from the free jetty by the Boulevard. The captors remain anonymous but local sources tell me they were holiday anglers after perch. Where these fish have come from remains a mystery.

Boilie Basics - Fishing Boilies Recipes - Part 1
@ :: Baits ::     Mar 27 2007, 11:44 (UTC+0)

DTidmarsh writes: This article apeared on written by Dave Dowding.

Boilies, surely the most convenient bait devised for angling? But I sometimes wonder if the sheer success and convenience of these baits can actually pose problems to anglers who start using them for the first time.

Their first approach to a tackle shop in search of these will be a daunting one as they survey rows and rows of coloured baits with extravagant and mystic names, such as Assasin8, Activ8, Multiplex and the Isotonic range to name just a few of the multitude available. Now all of these baits are extremely effective and catch thousands of fish each year, but I feel that the high success rates of them actually means the continued...

Coombe Country Park, until recently better known as Coombe Abbey, has been a famous landmark on the outskirts of the city of Coventry since the current buildings were constructed between 1774 and 1777. The gardens, which were landscaped by Capability Brown, now form part of the extensive 500-acre country park, where visitors can idle the day away feeding the ducks or simply taking in the breathtaking view throughout the year.
Few of them can realise, however, that they are looking at one of the country's most renowned zander and bream continued...

Earlswood Lakes are three attractive large reservoirs set in pleasant wooded countryside next to the village of Earlswood to the south of Solihull. Nationally renowned as a prolific match venue, it is also popular with pleasure anglers.
Before the end of 1999 all three lakes were operated as unmanaged natural fisheries with the most common species being bream and roach. The quality of fishing was high but the demand from anglers for this type of natural fishery declined through the 1990's. In 1994 there were over 10,000 angler visits to Earlswood Lakes but by 1997 this continued...

Shatterford Lakes and Country Park

Tel: 01299 861597

Set in the heart of delightful Worcestershire countryside, the unusual but inviting Shatterford Lakes and Country Park has recently been purchased by new owners Tim and Claire Warrington who are investing much time and money in reinstating many of the attractive features of the fishery and park and who are already planning to add new features. From an anglers point of view the changes are set to improve both the coarse and game angling which are on offer.
The fishery is unusual in that, from the car park and shop at the top of the site you look down on a series of terraced lakes connected by stone-walled streams and waterfalls which gives an almost parkland feel.

Add to this the Sika deer which roam freely between the trees and continued...
