    Fishing in Lincolnshire Wolds

    I fished Toft Newton many times in the 1980s and now am considering moving to the area. There appear to be some chalk streams in the area - does anyone know if there is any river trout fishing in the area?

    Boat partner for Carsington?

    I'm intending to fish Carsington Water over the next couple of weeks. I've done a little boat fishing at Chew and Farmoor but still consider myself to be very much of a beginner.

    Fishing in Limousin

    I live near St Yrieix la Perche and have been unsuccessfully searching for some decent river fly fishing for some time. Any advice would be much appreciated. All the rivers near me seem to be devoid of fish, probably because the locals kill everything they catch except carp.

    Chew Valley Boat Seat

    I was lucky enough to use one of the original Chew Valley Boat Seats manufactured by the late Dave Wheeler on my last visit to Chew. What a revelation! The only seat I've ever used that remained comfortable for a whole day on the water. I'd love to get hold of one but am aware that they are no...

    Reservoir fishing questions

    I have bought a Shakey Agility 9'6" #6 rod specifically for boat fishing as I don't really want to take my trusty old Sage SP on a boat where I suspect it is more likely to be at risk from my clumsiness. I need to line the rod for boat fishing plus the occasional bit of reservoir bank fishing...

    Two of us are planning a week in the Chew Valley in late April/Early May. I'd be grateful for any recommendations on good accommodation in the area. Obviously can go the Google and Air BnB route but looking for personal recommendations if possible. Many thanks.
