Hi Bill, welcome to maggotdrowning.

what sort of fishing are you after?
I lived in Leigh a long time, and there's all sorts, from park lakes to Pennington flash, canals to the tiny river Glaze, there's a good choice within a small area. Let us know what you like and someone on here will point you in the right direction.[;)]

Hi Crusty,

Thanks for the welcome...

Any general coarse fishing, on any type of water around that area will do me to start, then maybe branch out futher once i'm settled...

So long as i'm fishing that'll do me...

I've seen the canal Phil... it's about 200 yards from the place i'm moving too.... Any idea who controls it??

Wow.. a lot of water on the Wigan ticket and all for 22 quid... definately worth looking into....

Thx MIB.... Don't know where that is, but i'm sure i'll find out, if the matches are advertised i'll sure be having a go at some time or other...

Thanks guys... keep 'em coming... And look forward to maybe meeting some of you once i get up there...

Bill....
