Terry’s Travels Having received a trout angling invite from the lads at Lee Reservoir Angling, I made hasty bait and tackle preparations for this un-expected adventure. Unusually for trout angling, this would also be a night session. It is well known just how effective ledgered worm baits can be for trout, and so, bait supply would start with one hundred black-heads, courtesy of my old mate Alister Smyth, Tight Lines Tackle Shop, Belfast, but I needed something extra.

April has been a busy month for me work wise, so this blog is a catch up on what’s been happening since late March, fishing wise. My last blog detailing huss fishing ended with me suggesting I would target a shore plaice. Normally I’d look for these from about the end of February, but the bitterly cold east winds the whole of the UK endured, pretty much from the end of January, had postponed the hoped for early spring. Sea temperatures on my local Welsh coast were some 2C ...

Pike angling, back on the River Erne

Launching at the Carrybridge slipway, Fermanagh, is comfortable and straight-forward, albeit in full winter flood conditions at the moment. This area offers the opportunity to target pike around the back-waters and sheltered marinas en-route to the main lough. The bait-fish are inclined to move out of the strong current in favour of a less demanding environment under these winter conditions, with pike close behind them. With Glenn and me choosing the fly, and Andy opt...

John Hole from Sussex landed his personal best Spurdog which weighed in at 18Ib. John caught the big spur while anchored on a bank aboard Flamer IV. John was using a Shakespeare up-tide rod with a pennel rig of Sakuma  6/0 and 4/0 hooks baited with a cocktail of Ammo squid and Mackerel. He also had a right old struggle trying to land a 25Ib Blonde Ray. Both fish were returned alive. Dave Metcalf (above) from Dorset also landed a personal best Spurdog which w...

This is just a quick blog from the week-end. Took the two Shakespeare Agility Barbel rods out again, looking for a “lunker” perch to put a bend in one or both of them. I thought the weather had improved from the recent bout of snow and easterly winds. The snow has gone, thank goodness, but the biting easterlies remain persistent. The breeze would cut you in two, but thankfully, the brolly gave some amount of respite. This time, I teamed the rods with an old pair of...

Two of my closest angling buddies from County Cork have recently opened a guided angling business in the area. Their natural ability to locate and tempt specimen and record fish is second to none, and one of the main reasons that I have so much angling success and fond memories whenever I travel to that part of the world. These guys are Sidney Kennedy and Ross Macklin. Their chosen venue for this new venture is the Lee Reservoir system. It has been one of Ireland’s...

It is around the middle to late March I start targeting huss on my home ground in North Wales. These fish start to move back in numbers on to the deep water rock marks and, along with early plaice, herald the arrival of spring. My tactics are pretty simple. I aim to fish a tide with low water falling around dusk or in to dark. I tend to favour the smaller neap tides on the marks I fish as fast tide runs induced by the bigger tides tends to push the fish in to sheltered bay...
