The best coarse fishing in Europe

July 27th, 2009

Holland is consistently the best coarse fishing location in Europe. Vast natural shoals of Bream, Roach, Hybrids, Tench, Carp and Rudd to name but a few. The fishing here provides easy access to a huge choice of waters. Most lakes, canals and rivers in Holland carry a bit of colour and fish feed close, that is perhaps one prime reason the fishing is top class.

You can fish waters that suite pole, feeder and waggler tactics. Theres a huge choice of rivers, canals and stillwaters that have excellent access. All are close to ports of arrival. Excellent value accommodations from Self Catering to B&B on offer.

April to October is the season. April in particular offers great value package deals with Anglers World.

A special DVD with Bob Nudd fishing in Holland is available.

Prolific Hard Fighting Wild Carp

July 27th, 2009

Canada is the tops for serious carp and pleasure anglers. But its about catching lots of hard fighting carp rather than just a few big ones. Here you can land over 20 doubles in a day with ease when its on song, and teens to twenties are the norm. There is always a good chance of a thirty and forties/fifties are there to be caught. Bait is simple – boiled maize available locally, nothing fancy in rig terms – 15lb mono or 30lb braid as main line. 1.5 to 3 ounce inline leads and size 4 to 2 carp hooks. Canada has tons of big hard fighting carp, its just a 7 hour flight away and summers are hot. Add nice scenery and plenty of space and you have a carp paradise. See Mick Gee escorted trips too.
