  • Back to Fishing after a long time...

    Afternoon all.

    Just a quick hello from me.

    Used to fish loads when I was younger (for about 5-6 years), fishing on the River Nene between Northampton and Wellingborough.
    But, with the usual exams, Uni, Women and stuff, stopped about 12 years ago.

    Last year, my darling other half, bought me a load of new equipment, so have really got back into it this summer.

    Only fish lakes now, but still a novice really (so many shiny new things ).

    Will have a read more thoroughly through the forum when I have a little more time.

        Welcome to the site and welcome back to fishing.

        The inspiration behind the Maver C-Loc method feeder.

          Cheers Peeps

          Looking forward to the weekend fishing the River Welland for the first time.
          Question is...feeder or waggler (have a seperate thread if anyone has any idea).

          Would prefer the waggler, but have the option of a feeder.

          I only have one issue...I dont seem to be able to go for more than a week without fishing before getting withdrawl symptoms

                  Wollaston for me. Left in 97.

                  I used to love fishing the Nene, but over time, it seemed to die down (Pike and weeds started becoming a problem where I went).
                  I remember in my early days using an extremely light float, and dangling just beneath where I was sitting. 72 Gudgeon in an hour lol
                  Those were the days when I just loved catching fish.

                  I remember there used to be some nice bream (never caught any apart from the skimmers), roach (I think 1.5lb was the biggests) and perch (about 2lb).

                  Saw the odd carp too, but very few.
