Recently I popped up to the tidal Thames at Teddington for a session with Richard Crimp and one of his friends. I has been encouraged to fish the Thames when I looked into the Thames Anglers Conservancy website and forum. The chosen section was at Teddington Lock and when I arrived I could see that it was popular with anglers with many already setup on the island in the choicest swims. Even through the best angling is to be had at high tide when the river flow slows to a crawl, anglers were there in numbers several hours before this.
Well it is that time of year again and Christmas is here, sadly this year it also brought the snow and all the lakes around me are frozen solid.But don’t let that stop you from getting out and enjoying the unique fishing that this season offers.
I am having fun on the rivers, the above pic shows me on the Thames near Weighbridge lure fishing. No fish this time but it was just good to get out and wet a line. By the way this section of river has been fishing very poorly recently it seems ( from speaking to the people on the bank) and probably is not enjoying the extra pressure from the lake anglers who now have no where to go 🙂
Anyway I hope that you all have a superb Xmas, dont eat too much and get out on boxing day for the traditional session !
A couple of tips if you do venture out :
