Fishing In France – Baz Morgan – Part 2

In my last article I explained the basic licence system in France. What I failed to say was that as far as I know there are no concessions for pensioners or disabled etc, but I will check that out on my next visit.  The river Mayenne is one of those venues that I am really keen to explore in the future.

Summerhayes – Open – 26th March 2017

The match was on Longs this week and the good news was that the weather was a lot better than it has been, the bad news was that the Torquay Tart had text me to say he was fishing today! I picked Janders up and as soon as we pulled into the car park I could see the Tart waving at us

Perry St Pond – 12th March 2017

I didn’t get to fish the Perry St League last year due to the dates clashing with the Isle matches and I have to say I missed it, so I was delighted when Les phoned and said this years dates were back to normal. The last time I fished it, I’d done well fishing pellet shallow and meat at five metres and
