Fishing means lots of things for lots of different people, to me it's a great way to catch up with friends and share a great life-long passion.
Like many anglers, I like to try new venues to fish. Usually I like there to be a chance of a good size, specimen fish of a certain species as well, as it adds to the excitement for me.
When tackling a new water, I see it as a jigsaw puzzle, I need to get all the information and put it together to complete it. Firstly, this involves getting the time to be able to fish it, then working out the tactics that should work, finding the areas to focus on which should produce fish, researching local information and of course watching the weather.
