Favourite freshwater species

Post by fishdorset on Wed Jul 14, 2010 8:14 am

I grew up coarse fishing and I'm going to be doing some more this year.

Bream fishing on the feeder or chub on the river, great sport!

If I had to only fish for one species, I think it would be chub.

Hopefully get together soon and fish a few lakes or rivers. Very Happy

Floater fishing, forgot that!

Now that is a memory, a lot of freshwater fishing I haven't done for a while like surface fishing. With the weed and fish situation on Chesil at present I may be heading to the lakes to get some fishing time in.

Good idea to put a course section up john, I still do a bit of course fishing we have a farm near me with two carp lakes and 1 general lake so pop up there every now and then.

I love stalking our local River Piddle Grayling, beautiful fish Smile If I had to pick a non-game fish it would be the Barbel. They give a great scrap on a fly Very Happy

When I was a kid I loved hunting Brown Trout in the stream at the bottom of the garden, and trying for Gudgeon that lived in a cooling pond down at the colliery near my grandma's house.

I still do a lot of fluff chucking, and winter trotting for roach and chub. My club waters are on the Avon, Nadder, Stour and Wyle around Salisbury so i've got a good choice. There is a few lakes owned by the club too but i don't really bother with them, sometimes go for a bit of carp on the fly which is awesome.

Well I only had 2 years of coarse fishing when I was in Liverpool going my studies.. My favourite fish would definately be the Tench!!

My Best catch at GreenBank Park a bagful of tench on the pole with paste as bait.

That's what I like to see, another man on the pole........see I'm not the only one.
Paste is a killer method and is great when the carp or tench have really got there heads down.

Well I used to be on the pole back in the UK.. Now that I'm back in Singapore.. It kinda boring not been able to fish with a seatbox and my trusty 16mtr Pole.. We don't have those type of fishes here.

The pole is a killer method to fish.. Exact bait position.. Excellent Bait presentation if the rig is shot properly..
However the angler himself/herself have to get the fish into the 'mood'!!

My usual practice on matches would to fish the 16mtr out on side... 8trs out in the centre... and the shallows in the last 1hr Smile
Had me winning a couple of matches like that Smile

Thats on a different level... I tried for the longest time for the bass in UK but caught none at all.. Bait and lure..
Cod wise my biggest was about 2lb that's about it from the Mersey River.

I've been devoting a little too much time course fishing of late, 6 sessions in the past 8 days, the Stour is only 10 mins away and membership is peanuts. Plugging rod is has now taken up residence in the back of the car ready for an hour in the afternoon between service or a fleeting pikeathon before breakfast....great!!!
