Hi Greeny-- If you really want some rain you can have some of ours for your pool --since 8-00am yesterday until 8-00am this morning we have had 5 ĺ inches of rain. It is is still raining and the weather reports tell us that we can expect equal to that for the next 2 to 3 days with winds up to 100 kph. Some thing to really look forward to for normally it would be fine sunny weather here in this part of Australia at this time of the year.  Jayess

Hi Greeny -- Just to be awkward the rain gauge this morning showed there was quite a lot more rain than yesterday.. 270 mm or in inches it was 10.630 inches. That is now 417mm (16 Ĺ inches) in 2 days   --We were very lucky for it did not do any damage to us but in lots of places rivers & creeks waters rose so rapidly that it washed cars & trucks away. The TV news is full of scenes of the damage everywhere, houses are ruined & some of the high-rise buildings with metal awnings over the windows just ripped off in the winds. The wind & rain as now travelled for approx 300 klms down the coast with millions of dollars damage left in its wake.  I heard that the town where Herby lives was under water so I hope that Herby is OK & that no damage to his house  etc.  --Jayess

Ow do Greeny,
                   If you're local to it why don't you try the canal ?.Quite a few clubs own different stretches and most parts are really well stocked.Of all the years I've  fished it I've never been asked by a club bailiff for the price of a day ticket......just make sure you've got a rod license just in case.From Mossley to Guide Bridge there's Roach,Perch,Gudgeon,shoals of decent sized Bream,Common,Ghost and the odd Koi Carp and Rainbow Trout,Tench,small Pike and Rudd.From Portland Basin towards Hyde it's mainly Roach,Perch and Pike.
Let us know how you get on.

oh that brings back the memories as my husban liked to fish on canal with my stepdad at whitelands road. One time was very funny as we were on our own with son aged about 9 and my husband was deep in conversation with another fishing enthusiast when my son decided to check how deep the water was and fell in. Husband carried on talking while I cut knee on glass saving son. We had walked down  so son squelched all way home in wellies. Knott hill res. was also pretty good although paul my husband prefers lodges in glossop where he was born. I caught my first roache at knott hill and was so proud as paul didn't catch anything that day. We tried to get son interested but spent more tim de-tangling his line and he didn't have enough patience

Packed it in yonks ago.Rod licence? never heard of it. 6 pound a day seems a bit steep but I suppose $60 is for a round of golf.
Fishing=Empty belly, wet ar%e,empty keepnet.(my experience anyway)

Hi Greeny
              I've been fishing today here in Hertfordshire, using a pole its great fun especially when you get a big one on a light elastic.
                                 The only problem poles are not cheap.
