WHILE BREXIT IS DIVIDING OPINION, SEA ANGLING IS trying to gain some advantage. For example, many anglers hoped the Fisheries Bill would provide a Brexit dividend in terms of the UK seizing control of its own waters, but our representative body, the Angling Trust, is calling it a missed opportunity. On what could be a more positive note, those seeking a legitimate bluefin tuna fishery in the UK hope to use Brexit to their advantage. A campaign has been launched to establish a regulated, live-release UK tuna fishery, which would set a new benchmark for how such fisheries should be managed globally. Campaigners hope Brexit will help us to grab a share of the tuna quota. Find out how on page 40. Back to the subject of the long-awaited Fisheries Bill. It…

down in the darkness

UNLOCKING THE SECRETS AND potential of some marks can be frustrating, even for the most experienced anglers, with tidal and weather conditions often being a major factor in success. That’s before we even consider if the target species plays hide and seek. One such area is the beach to the east of Swanage running up towards the towering cliffs at Ballard Down, which eventually drop down to Old Harry Rocks, a very fishy area in its own rights. Over the years I have fished this area of Dorset on a number of occasions with a varying success rate. Some hefty rays often figure at the top end of the beach just before the rocky section starts, especially over the low water period at night. Low water allows anglers to cast out on to…

light fantastic

WALTON-ON-THE-NAZE, IN Essex, is a seaside resort where I grew up and, although I now live a few miles away in Clacton, you will usually see me fishing somewhere along my home town’s shoreline. It also boasts the second longest amusement pier in England, which is also good for fishing, along with stretches of golden sands adorned with multi-coloured beach huts. Anglers sometimes forget how well these beaches can fish, but with a bit of thought, and the correct bait and tackle, there are some good catches to be had here. It’s a great place to fish for most of the year. The only time I avoid it is in January and February when those pesky sprats arrive in the Thames Estuary and most of the local fish are preoccupied feeding on them. These…

a personal best - i’ll drink to that!

A QUICK PINT IN THE PUB TO discuss fishing tactics always seems a sensible idea, and even more so when your drinking partner is the local expert and runs a tackle shop. In my opinion, Steve Liddle is the master when it comes to fishing around the Somerset holiday town of Minehead, so who was I to turn down his suggestion of a pint? We’d set up this trip to seek spurdogs, which, until about two years ago, were fairly rare from the shore anywhere in the Bristol Channel. There were always occasional spurs landed further down in North Devon, but now they seem much more commonplace in Somerset. Being able to actually target them around Minehead is only a very recent occurrence. Some anglers put the increase of the species down…

day of destiny

HAVING SEEN SOME ANGLING Adventures footage of me abseiling down a cliff to target rays, I was set a challenge by top Yorkshire angler Paul Medd. He wanted to introduce me to a magical venue known as the ‘Bempton Bird Dash’, which I’m told is one of the best cod fishing venues in Yorkshire. Not for the faint-hearted, it involved me turning into a mountaineer and using a harness and attaching myself to ropes to descend the 300ft cliff face. It was something, I was told, that had never been covered by any magazine writer. Many have reached the point of the entrance to the mark and returned to their car. My date with destiny was during September’s 108th Scarborough Angling Festival. In the history of UK sea angling, the week-long event is…
