It was with great excitement, expectation and slight trepidation that I boarded the ferry. My destination was a large public lake in central France. At around 600 acres it wasn’t going to be a pushover but being in a very rural area I felt it was an ideal place to unwind in complete solitude and tranquillity while spending some quality time with my younger brother. An aerial shot of the lake After 9 hours on the ferry and 8 in the van we were both very happy to reach our destination on the Thursday evening. We didn’t commence fishing until the Friday morning as we had to sort out our regional fishing licences and get a few last-minute supplies. By around midday we had set...

This month I have well and truly had my carp fishing head on fishing three 48 hr and one 24 hour session. My time was invested fishing one of my favourite lakes, Upper Tamar reservoir near Kilkhampton. In my angling I always adopt the motto if it isn’t broken don’t fix, after two sessions and one bream to show for my efforts something definitely needed fixing. Before my third session I decided to up the anti by visiting the lake after work on Monday night and prebait a favoured spot. I must admit I was questioning my sanity as I stood in the lake introducing a couple of kilos of boilies surrounded by darkness and rainfall. Tuesday evening couldn’t come around soon enough. I...

Feeding The Birds In The WInter

Feeding The Birds In The WInter

1. Know your birds Different species eat different things. Sparrows and finches like seeds; tits like fat; and thrushes and robins like fruit and worms. And starlings will eat just about anything. Make sure you're providing the right menu for your diners - find out what to feed birds. 2. Look out for leftovers... Some of our own food can be good for birds – for example, fruit cake or mince pies, dried fruit, unsalted nuts, or apples and pears past their best. Try sprinkling grated mild cheese under trees and bushes for more timid birds like wrens and dunnocks. 3. But choose the right stuff... Birds probably won't eat your unwanted Christmas Day sprouts. And putting out turkey...
