      Hi mate the best thing to do is jion a club and fish matches with them. I run a match under the TA eastern banner and some lads come from worksop etc so if you fancy it let me know and fish the match with us you will have a luagh and learn from some of the anglers.

          don't know if it's still running mate, but years ago i was a member of the earl manvers club based in nottingham, they used to run a match every sunday and had control of the long higgin stretch of the trent, sorry no contact details but they won't be hard to find if they're still going.

            I fish with Carlton - a really friendly bunch of lads. The matches finish at the end of october, but take in Holly Farm, CJS, Sherwood farm park, Portland waters etc. Maggotdrowning.com run some fantastic matches too and have a fair few midlands based ones coming up too. Let me know if you would like to fish any of them.

                    were you a member in the 90's mark? in those days we used to get fifty turn up on a sunday to fish the long higgin matches and plenty on the other venues, a great club in it's day but i guess them no longer having long higgin is a sign of the times, with most anglers wanting to go to commercials on a weekend now.
