Young or Old…

Ive been fishing since the age of about 8. Starting off catching perch on the then iron coloured Bridgewater canal. Ive worked my way though most corners of our sport from general course fishing to dabbling in a little match fishing. From winter pike fishing and moving on to specimen carp fishing (like so many) mixed with occasional sea fishing adventures.

Eventually going back to course fishing again. So some of our pages will form a journal about our fishing trips in Lancashire (and occasionally further afield) plus details of the many Fishing waters.

…bear with us Fishing in Lancashire is a work in progress, once up and running a new design will follow !
