    I like pole fishing when I'm coarse fishing. If you were thinking of pole fishing , especially at the end of your road as it's local, the Preston Innovations Edge Monster Margin pole in 8.5m & 10m is recommended.

    Dhb Aeron shorts (I use the bib shorts, waist shorts also available) are good from Wiggle. Not too pricey and comfy.

    Evening all, I had a couple of hours on my club's river stretch, which is near to me. I fished the French Leader in a deeper than I thought section but with no takes. The water was moving through this section, I caught a tree and lost my 3 fly set up. So moved out to the lower pool which I've...

    Well done Baz , thats a Grayling. Yellow pectoral (?) fin and looks like red on the dorsal fin. Possibly a male . Ged will confirm.

    Morning all, hope you are all well. I visited the Calder on one of Club Stretches a couple of evenings ago, for just over an hour before sunset. It had been a warm day, but was a good time to fish even though time was short. I found below a fast section that my point fly had snagged on a weed/...

    Morning all, fill the rivers!!! I cycled on Wednesday around the Ribble Valley, the Calder at Whalley and the Ribble at Mitton were very low. I'd never seen the river bed rocks sticking out in those locations.
