  • The humble bass addiction
    As I stated in my first blog I’m relatively new to lure fishing and lure fishing for Bass was something that i had never even thought of.It all started around this time last year after meeting a rather good local lure angler. In the lure world he is pretty well known and has even fished […]
  • Lake District tarn fishing
    Now then, my names George Lamb and I run Bong’s fishing – an instagram community/youtube channel. When it comes to fishing everyone has their preferences regarding species and methods, and unlike most when I fish it’s not size I’m after. In my opinion the epitome of fishing, and what it means to me, is fishing […]
  • High Temperature Angling
    I would usually be preparing for cooler climates and heading for the mountain lakes and rivers of mid Wales for wild brown trout and Sea Trout. Alas not this year, I’m really missing the cool mountain air and fly fishing for a few weeks. However I seem to have regained my love of summer lake […]

    Firstly welcome all back to another of our blogs we really appreciate it, if you read our first blog you would know how much i loved mine and Jacks trip to Lake Chira, Gran Canaria a few years ago so im going to take this opportunity to talk about it (Any opportunity to talk about […]
  • Bag of Crucians
    Due to the scorching conditions it’s a weekend I won’t be Fishing, but in spirit of the great weather we are having (although a bit too hot for my liking!), I may as well talk about the perfect summer Fish! The Crucian! Now, I am lucky enough that my club lakes stock Crucians in some […]
  • Reservoir Diaries Part 1
    Rochford Reservoir is a venue I have fished a lot this year and a place I’m going to be putting some good time into over the course of the year, so it’s likely there will be more reservoir diaries to come.  It’s a day ticket lake, however they do offer a set number of memberships […]

  • Ramble on the River Roach
    Last Thursday, my mate Jack and I did a quick afternoon session on the River Roach. We were on our bikes so had to pack light, a rod, reel, net, some bait and some end tackle was all we needed. The Roach is a small river, running from the River Crouch near Paglesham to the […]
  • The Pike
    Only a few months until I go Piking and I can’t wait. I have already started to sort all my gear out, seeing if I need to get any bits and bobs. Then in September I start setting up my rods all ready to go. I have two dead bait rods (Fox Warrior) with EOS […]
  • My life of angling
    Fishing for me started almost 27 years ago, at the ripe age of 3 when I am pictured with my Grandad float fishing on the River Lea.Since then I’ve targeted hundreds of species from all over the world.I would say the passion really took hold when I was around 10 and I found myself constantly […]
  • Literally CHASING fish and children😂😡
    So. After 2 near blanks on my local hound mark, a trip over the water to the isle of sheppey was in order. Bartons Point for anyone wanting an easy to fish, scenic venue . Which was annoying as the night i went, the fish made a b line from this beach to the one […]
  • Mixed Morning Session
    With the weather being a bit hot and bright recently and the Rivers not Fishing very well at the moment, I opted to go to my club lakes. Hockley Angling Club have a lovely set of lakes with a nice range of Fishing, however they do stock Barbel in all the lakes, so really wanted […]
  • Slimy Surprises
    Last Thursday, my dad joined me on a 24 hour session to Chigborough fisheries in Heybridge, near Maldon. It was my second visit and his first. We were hoping to catch some stunning carp and beat my dads very poor PB of 15lb. I knew there were some stonking bream and tench present too so […]
  • Count your blessings.
    So, this has been BY FAR my best season sea fishing, even though it’s been trimmed in half already. There’s something about sea fishing that for me makes every session unforgettable. The blanks? A learning curve. Epic captures? A confidence booster, and sometimes for me, certain catches have literally made me feel like I’m floating […]
  • The River Crouch Bass Adventure
    I must have caught a few dozen sea bass in my life before. Nothing massive, the biggest probably a couple pound. Most were caught on bait and a few were caught jigging feathers. I’ve always wanted to catch one on a lure, the light gear and constant movement involved in lure fishing is what drew […]
