A Slow and Stubborn Start.

Written by Top Imitator on . Posted in Articles

So finally the rivers are open again and for the first time in ages I was positively champing at the bit to get out and get amongst them; rigs tied, tackle boxes sorted, reels re-spooled, bait made. For the first time in a few seasons I was up for it big style.

Looking for Clues.

The ‘chuck it and chance it’ approach really has very little place in modern specimen angling and those anglers who put in the hours of homework are those who ultimately reap the rewards.

 

Jordan New What a way to start 2013.

In September 2012 I started what I had dreamt of as a young lad and that was to study fishery management at Sparsholt College in Hampshire. Sadly since starting there I haven’t had much time to get on the bank due to college work and whenever I came home I had work on so fishing took a back step for a while.

 

Close Season Thoughts.

Written by Top Imitator on . Posted in Articles

The pros and cons of the river close season always generates heated debate amongst anglers and although I’m one of those who believes it should be abolished – or rather the power to decide should be given to the fishery managers and owners – I do really enjoy the break.

 

The Balancing Act.

This year has seen many tackle manufacturers trying to join the plastic revolution, bringing out all manner of bits and pieces. This means that Enterprise Tackle really had to step it up a notch this year in order to stay the biggest and the best in the market, in my opinion they have raised the bar considerably with the new products that are set to take the market by storm.

 

 

Frost and Flood, Part 1 Frost.

The two weather conditions that strike fear into most river anglers, Indeed most anglers full stop, are ‘frost’ and ‘flood’ and this season we have had more than our fair share of both! In this two-part blog I’m going to be taking a quick look at both and, hopefully, be removing some of that fear from them.

 

Frost and Flood, Part 2 Flood.

For some reason floodwater seems to stump more river anglers than the cold, clear and frosty conditions I looked at in the first part of this two-part blog and that, to me is a mystery as flood conditions – so long as they are the ‘right’ type of flood conditions are the very best of times to be out barbel fishing – it’s when the whackers come out to play!

 

Frost and Flood, So It’s Pike.

Fishing floodwater – providing you are careful – can be one of the most productive of all conditions for catching barbel, especially if the flood is as a result of heavy, warm rainfall after a cold snap. Indeed, I would go as far as to say it is my favourite of all barbel conditions – the time I simply drop everything and get out there!
