ADRIAN LANE - Specimen Angler   Facebook   Follow me on Twitter  

Hi my name is Adrian Lane, I am a dedicated specimen angler. I was a professional match angler for 10 years in the 1980's, I decided that I wanted to do something different this time.
I spend a lot of time patrolling local waters as a Voluntary Bailiff, I care very deeply about the waters I fish, I will do what needs to be done to help safeguard & promote angling for future generations.
I am very lucky to live in a beautiful part of the country, I am located in the severnside town of Lydney, Gloucestershire, England, my favorite river, is the majestic River Wye, which is right on my doorstep.
You will find lots of information about Bailiffing as well as angling here.
The Lydney Canal must be the shortest canal in England, It is only one mile in length, it looks very good in places for fishing and I have heard lots of stories from the locals of big fish being in there, well I intend to find out, I have also heard of matches of 100 plus anglers.
I am going to be doing a year long study into this great little water that is right on my doorstep, I shall be monitoring everything from water condition to fish catches throughout 2019.
If anybody would like to join in & work with me in anyway, then please get in touch, my contact details are on the Contact page.
Please watch the articles section for our progress under Lydney Canal.
I am very passionate about my angling, I care very much about my sport and things that effect it in my area and beyond.
You will find me out on the bank patrolling most days and some nights, I am very active as a water bailiff, I patrol a lot of waters in and around Gloucestershire for various clubs and organisations.
Angling is up against a lot more illegal activity these days, than I seem to remember years ago, the only way we can protect our sport is to work together & report what we see to the authourities.
Report any fishery crime to the Environment Agency on 0800 807060 (24/7) or the Police on 101 or 999 if a crime is in progress. 
I would like to introduce to you a product that has assisted me in protecting myself when I have been attacked whilst patrolling local club waters & fisheries.
