The Angling Trust survey
Survey shows a third of adults have tried fishing

A survey of 13,000 people carried out for the Angling Trust has revealed that a third of the adult population of England have tried angling at least once and of those about half have some interest in going fishing again.

The survey also showed that angling attracts higher than average numbers of disabled people and that 61 per cent of anglers who responded started fishing before they were 10 years old. A third of anglers who responded said they go fishing more than 40 times a year. Follow this link to find out more about what the survey revealed.

Andy smashes Broad Acres record

Broad Acres regular Andy Checkits has smashed the venue match record with a 304lb 12oz catch when fishing a Rocklands Angling Club match.

Andy fished pole down the edge in one foot of water on Stock Pool using 0.16 line, Size 12 hook and a 0.2 grm float. Using bread flake on the hook he fed two kilos of mashed bread to keep the fish going to end the match with a net which consisted mainly of 1lb 8oz to 4lb carp but also included one fish of 17lb 14oz during a match in which several double figure carp were caught - the next biggest weighing in at 16lb 10oz.

Finishing second was Antony Carter with 187lb 14oz followed by Steve Reynolds with 138lb 2oz.

Lee Osborne with his 14lb 3oz Anchor Meadow barbelAnchor Meadow regular Lee Osborne has landed Anchor Meadow's biggest fish of 2016 with a beautiful 14lbs 3oz specimen (left) taken off the point whilst night fishing.

Having arrived as it was going dark, Lee hand-fed boilies and hemp close into the margin with one rod and set up another out in the main river. He then fished a pva bag filled with crushed halibut pellets, boilies and hemp on 12lb line to a Size 8 hook.

Catch a barbel and get your peg fee back

Having been stocked three years ago as nine inch fish, Hamstall Fishery's barbel are proving so difficult to catch that fishery owner Paul Ford has said he will refund any angler's peg fee if they manage to land one from either Pool Two or Pool Four.

The fish, which now weigh more than 3lbs 8oz, are in all of the Hamstall Fishery waters but to be eligible anglers must take a photograph of their fish and show it to Keith the bailiff. They must also be able to prove the date and time the fish was caught - a facility available on most modern phones. Only one refund will be made per angler per day.

Chris sets new Astwood pool record with 233lbs

The match record for Astwood Fishery's Bluebell Pool has been smashed for the second time in just six weeks with Darlaston angler Chris Small taking a 233lbs 11oz catch whilst fishing a Roost AC match.

Drawn on Peg 7 at the Worcestershire venue, Chris pole fished corn and meat over pellets and for the first half of the match was busy catching crucians to 1lb 8oz before switching to the margins and getting stuck into commons and mirrors to 17lbs 12oz. He beat the previous Bluebell Record which was set just six weeks before with 191lbs and was only a few pounds light of setting a new venue record which still stands at 236lbs from Buddlea.

Furnace Mill hots up to become 'stripey superwater'

Worcestershire's Furnace Mill Fishery near Kidderminster has been stocked with large numbers of huge perch to turn the venue into a stripey superwater.

Owner Ed Brown (right) has stocked more than 60 fish to 4lb 12oz to cater for the growing number of anglers who want an alternative to carp and to provide even better year-round fishing. The fish have been split equally between the fishery's Mucky Meadow and Furnace pools.

News bites...

Warwickshire's Studley Angling Club which has two stretches of the River Arrow has announced its 2016/2017 prices. Day tickets cost £5.00 whilst annual memberships are £24.00 for adults; £16.00 for OAPs; £15.00 for students and trainees; and £5.00 for juniors.

More than 300 tench weighing about 8oz have been added to Top and Middle Lake at Warwickshire's Lanny's Lagoon with the bulk of the fish going into Top Lake.

Last year's stocking at Pool House Farm near Tamworth of 100 barbel and 400 ide, all between six and eight inches, is providing dividends with the barbel now coming out at a foot long.

Warwickshire's Kingsbury Water Park will once again be hosting a programme of angling events in 2016 including the Midlands Carp Cup, night fishing sessions and weekly 'Let's Family Fish' during the summer school holidays.

Meadowlands restricts the use of 8mm pellets

Coventry's Meadowlands Fishery has restricted the feeding of 8mm pellets on its Lamsdown Lake after anglers complained that fishing was becoming 'too one-dimensional'. The move follows a similar restriction two years ago on the smaller Warren Pool.

The change means that anglers are now only allowed to feed 8mm pellets between April 1 and October 30 and must restrict their use to 2kg per session.

It is hoped the move will improve the fishing and catch rates all year round, especially in winter.
