Just pack your wet-weather gear! Hopefully you won't need it![8D] The forecasting is terrible,it seems to have got worse?[:0] But tonight I did hear a forecaster admit she didn't know what the weekend was going to be like.That's computers for you!![:(] I went out this morning and it rained continuously till Mid-day.It stopped when we got back in the car and the afternoon turned out nice.Shame they got it the wrong way round!!!!![V]

Mate, do not believe any site other than http://metoffice.co.uk

The official website that people like the BBC use to give their forecasts, this is absolutely spot on for everything.

The best would be no wind lol

Ive heard that about North Westerly's but to be honest, it all depends on what angle your venues at i suppose if that makes any sense [:p]

please reply
A gentle breeze on a scorching hot day,CaRp Kidd especially when there is a continous bend in your rod,an plenty of beer keeping cool in the bottom of the keepnet.

In truth CaRp Kidd, it depends on the venue as to how it fishes when a wind is blowing, and how the wind catches the water.

the most accurate forecasts ive been able to find ever are powered by Foreca, far more accurate than the Met office.

when I'm not drowning maggots I fly model aircraft in aerobatic competitions, a hobby even more affected by the weather than angling.
the BBC five day forecasts are a joke and never happen. 5mph winds turn into 20mph and
light showers mean constant rain all day.
