they have all sorts of junk and rubbish thrown in them. its a wonder anything can survive in some areas.
some stretches of canal are well looked after and regular fishing competitions are held on there.
but eve in these stretches you wouldn't dare eat your catch.
woz
very true, i fish alot of matches on canals and rivers, as well as lakes... ive never tried tench, and never would try it... even if it was from a clean water...

Quote:
a lot of the rivers in the uk have got top quality water running in them. they are improving every year as well.
for those who don't know, to fish in the uk you have to buy a license. the money raised goes directly to improving our rivers and lakes.
its only about £20 $35 per person.
you can be fined £2000 if caught.
this is a public service message on behalf of the enviroment agency lmao.
woz
the water quality is getting better... though its still far from clean enough to eat the fish from in many cases... and yeah, the fishing licence... need to get one of those for this year, im probably going on saturday, so i need one...
the fine is up to 2000, normally its less, i think the max fine is only for repeat offendors... ive been checked loads of times, never on the river, but on quite a few lakes ive been checked...

how much fishing do you do woz?

and thats a huge catfish btw, my mate caught a 90somtehing pound catfish last year in france... theres some huge cats out there... they arent too big in this country, but im going for one this summer... as well as a 20lb common carp... thats my aim for the summer. and mabye a bigger sturgoen... wanna get one of those...

Mark, there's some big Catfish at Woburn Abbey where the Duke of Bedford lives, I have seen some big ones caught there in the 1960's.

Edit: I believe it's called Beaulieu Lakes and they have a fish called a Zander as well I think...

Little new potatoes boiled in the skins, and threaded on to a small treble hook were a good Carp bait, when I used to live in England. I used to live near Earlswood Lakes near Redhill in Surrey. I also used to go fishing at Bury Hill Lakes near Dorking, all sorts of fish there. The rivers I used to fish in mainlly were the River Mole near me, and the River Thames near Penton Hook.
