I do consider myself these day's to be a specimen angler, although I am temped to enjoy the pleasures of match angling again though.
My main quarry these days are Barbel & Pike, but I do still enjoy my carp fishing, although I am happy to fish for any species.
I much prefer river angling, as apposed to a stillwater fishing, my favorite rivers are the mighty & beautiful River Wye and the River Severn, I am lucky enough to have these two great waters on my doorstep.
The Gloucester to Sharpness Canal was a favorite of mine in my match fishing days, I am looking forward to getting back to some of my favorite sections soon.
There are only have two species of coarse fish I am yet to catch, they are, Catfish and Zander, but I am sure I will cross these of my list soon.
