Angling Trust recruits migrant anglers to encourage legal fishing

Two more Eastern European migrant anglers have been recruited by the Angling Trust to further encourage lawful angling in England.

Many migrant anglers come from cultures where coarse fish are regularly taken to eat and over the past 10 years some migrants, often unaware of UK laws and conservation-based angling culture, have continued this practice - causing tension amongst the angling community in England.

Avoiding such community division is one of the reasons why the Angling Trust's new Fisheries Enforcement Support Service, in partnership with the Environment Agency, has established this issue as a priority for angling. The Environment Agency has commissioned the Angling Trust to deliver the service, which is paid for by rod licence income. Click here for more information.

Bluebell's 'Dave' comes to the net again - this time at 55lb 12oz

Kevin Hewitt with Bluebell's Dave Just two months after being caught by Cheshire angler Jay Mills at 53lb 12oz Bluebell Lakes' 'Dave' has been caught again at an even heavier weight.

This time Dave, who had obviously been stocking up for winter, came out 2lbs heavier at 55lbs 12oz when he fell to Bluebell regular Kev Hewitt who is pictured right with his fish. Swindon-based angler Kev works as manager for Hinders Fishing Superstore and was fishing the Garden Swim on Swan Lake on a 48-hour ticket when he saw fish showing. Fishing a pva bag of pellets and a single piece of plastic sweetcorn, he took a fish of 37lbs before catching Dave on the next cast.

When Dave was last caught in September he fell for a small cube of luncheon meat fished on a size 10 hook in a small PVA bag of freebies.

Alan Clough with his 4lb 4oz Andy's Lake perchAlan lands 4lb-plus Andy's Lake stripey

Winter is traditionally regarded as the best time to go for perch, but Hereford angler Alan Clough got off to an early start when he caught this cracking 4lb 4oz Andy's Lake perch during the last weekend of October... and not on a traditional predator bait.

Alan, who works as an aircraft antenna production manager, was fishing Andy's Lake for carp and packed a cage feeder with this year's ground up spare pellets on 8lb mainline to a 12" hair rig and Size 14 hook baited with two grains of sweetcorn.

His reaction on catching the fish was simply: "Greedy perch!".

Prototype boilie lands unknown specimen for 'Batman' Mick

'Batman' Mick  with his unknown Fisherwick Lakes fishMick Smith - known to his friends as Batman because he wears shorts over his trousers and has Batman stickers all over his car - caught a specimen Fisherwick Lakes never knew they had when he took this 26lb 5oz ghost common whilst fishing the venue's Specimen Lake.

The fish, believed to be a descendant of a bull-nose common the fishery had for many years, was caught one afternoon at the end of October on a prototype tandoori flavoured boilie which Mick was testing for by Phil at Misty baits.

Mike is pictured above with his catch and Fisherwick Lakes manager Peter Jackson - himself doing a superb impression of a Batman villain.

Recent additions - two well established new fisheries

Small but perfectly formed is a good way to describe Wild Oak Fishery. Set in the Staffordshire countryside outside Coven near Wolverhampton, Wild Oak (right) is stocked with a good mix of fish including common and mirror carp which are known to run to 26lbs with a decent smattering of 20s; a good head of crucians to about 2lbs; tench to a similar size; bream to 1lb 8oz with a few larger specimens and roach, rudd and even dace. With a mix of open water, bays, islands and sheltered channels this is a lovely varied venue where you can't help but catch.

Another long established pool which only opened for day ticket angling at the beginning of the month is Leicestershire's Little Fishery Farm (left). Used as a stock pond for the original waters at nearby Peatling Pools Fishery, it is crammed with fish including common and mirror carp, tench, perch and roach. Because of the large number of fish in the pool it is an great spot for catching a lot of fish quickly and is ideal for a 'dads and lads' session or a family day out. An added attraction is that the farm breeds Alpacas, chickens, ducks and even pigs - so offers more than just the fishing.

Pete joins Broad acres and sets to work

Pete Rice on one of the new pegs at Broad Acres FisheryPete Rice, the former manager at Tunnel Barn Farm for 18 years where he helped the venue grow from four pools to its current nine, has joined Broad Acres and set about making improvements to the fishery.

Pete has already built 40 new timber and slab pegs on Main Lake (left) and a further 30 on Bill's Pool and is currently improving the pegs on Charlies in a way which will keep the surroundings as natural as possible to retain its current character.

News bites...

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.

Staffordshire's Pipehill Fisheries has stopped match fishing in 2016 and become a pleasure only venue.

Anglers intending to fish Anchor Meadow are being requested to call at the bungalow to obtain their tickets before driving down to the river and setting up.

Staffordshire's Hamstall Pleasure Fishery has reduced the price of day tickets on its general pleasure pools to £5.00 for adults and £4.00 for OAP/junior and disabled anglers until May 1, 2016.

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

Jack Harness, co-owner of Meadowlands, says the fishery has banned the use of 6mm and 8mm pellets on the grounds that visiting matchmen and pleasure anglers were getting fed up of having to fish at long range just to get bites. The experimental ban will stay in place until April 2016 after which anglers will only be permitted to use 1kg of 8mm pellets per session.
