Ken Aske RIP

Thought it would be remiss to not pay tribute to Ken Aske on this forum. What Ken did for junior angling in Birmingham can never be underestimated, and there will be hundreds of successful anglers for whom the Starlets were a great launchpad. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Starlets, learning something new every week, and the knowledge and experience acquired have held me in good stead.

Thanks Ken, and may you rest in peace.

Re: Underdale fishery just asking at the moment about a fish in ? NOT GOING TO BE DONE NOW

So let me get this right, for the sake of clarity...

The Underdale stretch bailiff offers to set up a fish-in for any interested anglers who might like to have a bash at Underdale, by way of promoting the use of the venue he so clearly cares about, and is shot down because he mentions the slight possibility that the attendees might want to have a sweep for the biggest fish caught on the day. Then the usual protagonists get stuck in and a slanging match arises. So the bailiff decides he's had enough of the petty bickering and decides to withdraw the offer of guiding visitors to his stretch, but the bickering continues.

Grow up gentlemen please, and act your age not your hook size.

BailiffDale, I've never fished Underdale but would be keen to give it a go one weekend when I haven't got a match. No interest in specimen barbel or anything of the sort. If it wants to eat my bait and pulls my float under, I'm more than happy to catch it, whether it's a dace or a confused puddle carp. At the end of the day it's a day's fishing, a day's relaxation and enjoyment of being by the waterside.

Re: Naked swimmer at broadwas

Trotting a maggot always was an effective method at Broadwas smiling

Not seen this particular swimmer, but did get the shock of my life at Ribbesford once when there was a naked swimmer suddenly appear in my peg (first peg down from the KDAA stretch). Right on my waggler line too!

Re: 1980 BAA Guide to Waters

Spot on JC I think, parking is the big issue for me as I can't walk very far and transporting gear is a nightmare. As much as I'd love to spend every waking hour on the rivers, there's only a few stretches that I can actually get to without crippling myself, whereas I can usually manage ten yards at a puddle. Think I need to buy one of those park homes on Northwood Lane!
