Happy New Tier


Lockdown again, but the end is in sight - roll out that vaccine. A month or two watching TV is a small price to pay. And hopefully we'll get out again before the season ends - I'd love a few pike & grayling.

Plenty of great blogs to read (or re-read) on the right, scroll down a bit. And I'll go back and look through some past glories - the advantage of blogging for over a decade. Stay safe - nearly there...


Edit: The Angling Trust has just announced that fishing is allowed during Lockdown 3. Check their website for rules and restrictions. They changed it a few hours after I posted this - to the river...

  1. Ever the optimist :o) If the vaccine doesn't get dished out a lot quicker we'll be sat watching shite TV for another year :o(

    1. Are you suggesting it will be another case of over-promising and under-delivering? Got to cling to that hope we’ll get back on the riverbank this season...

    4. Now the question is to wait a week for decent conditions or go out now in case things change again..?

    6. It’s weird, since hitting my target the barbel drive has gone. I’d love to chase down a pike but there no ‘local’ ones. I think perch might be the target - and they’re pretty rare in the local river... Might just pop down and chuck some lures about!

    7. My PB is 6 years old, might be time to start my campaign for a 3oz gudgeon again...

    1. If you can get there on your own, walk or drive & fish on your own - you literally can’t catch or spread Covid. I think public transport is too much of an unnecessary risk though. I’ve walked all season, but haven’t gone in lockdown yet - but that’s more to do with the weather!

  3. oh,i know.it's just madness that i can travel where i like to work,but can't travel out of hours to fish and stay there overnight.
