Love to fish the Royalty stretch of the Hampshire Avon. Only used to live 10mins from Christchurch too
That’s only cos you havent done it yet. You’d be totally addicted I reckon. My dream would be to spend the river season here and spend the closed season travelling. Would spend the first half trying new places like cuba, Belize, Bahamas etc and the second half the fishing capital of the world that is Florida. River season I’m more than happy to be here tbf although our winter in OZ wouldnt be bad hahaI'm the opposite re UK. I'd prefer to fish here. The UK is full of both known and also hush hush waters that I hope this thread will mention but maybe they won't. Fishing abroad would feel like cheating to me.
Similarly I'd love to have a pairing with Dai Gribble or Paul Garner on some of the places they fish.Fishing a venue, not exactly. But i'd love to be part of a pair with Terry Hearn on one of his campaigns ( which ESP usually turn into a video) - just watching, helping out and learning.
Yep it’s the only place I’d leave oxfordshire for both from a general life and fishing point of view. Still got mates there from uni and it’s got beautiful countryside and coastline and nice towns and is not too remote then got the stour, avon, frome, two big harbours, the open sea, various lakes really only thing it’s really missing fishing wise is canals. And in normal life possibly not the best job market.Dorset has some great places to fish.
Silverfisher is right that it's only because I haven't tried it. What are those Barbel you get in Spain? Comizo/Gyspsy Barbel or something! Seen Dean Macey have a go for them.Sea fishing in places like the everglades would prolly be high on my hit list.
I've alaways fancied fishing the rivers of canada for the huge grayling also.
Then there's south america, tiger fish etc.
Africa, fishing for nile perch is another want....there are so many!
A few lucky so and so's such as John Wilson, Matt Heyes, Jeremy Wade and who was that crappy actor lol, get to go and fish all those exotic places.....jammy barstewards!
If you ever make it to Marsh Farm do talk to the several members here, we can get you guest tickets and fish together!If you could fish any venue where would it be?
I would like to fish
a) Marsh Farm, Godalming. Probably the preeminent Crucian fishery I know of.
b) Sutton Lake, Shropshire. A Carp syndicate that also holds big Crucians.
Feels like I haven't shut up about Crucians since catching a few big ones this year, they're addictive. Only other place I can think of right now that I'd like to have a dabble on is Walthamstow Reservoirs for the big Bream. Maybe a lottery win or something and I'd buy a property close by.
Suggestions for me welcome, otherwise what are your choices?
