I’ve wanted to fish Draycote for a long time and I recently got the opportunity to fish for its hard fighting trout with Mike Jnr.
There’s a proposal for a complete lead ban for fishing in the USA. Here’s what I think if such a ban is brought in to the UK.
A run down on what I got up to in January and how difficult the fishing has been in some areas due to the unseasonal weather patterns.
Mike takes stock of what he did, and didn’t, achieve during 2016, and looks forward to 2017 with some big plans already in place.
My autumn catches were a real mixed bag, including some good wreck pollack caught in difficult conditions.
The quest to add to my species list takes me to a small fishery in the historic town of Chirk in search of a Brook Trout.
Having unsuccessfully tried to bag a catfish in the UK before I head to a local lake in search of a Wels Catfish for species number 114.
