There is so many good blogs out there and very enjoyable ones at that, ranging from those that not only impart the reader with more fishing knowledge and ideas, to those whom weave a very enjoyable story along with it. So I thought I would make a post covering just a few of the many angling blogs I enjoy, I will be sharing more in due course.
I have been reading Jeffs blog for a while now and like a good wholesome meal, you feel satisfied and contented by the end. Jeff weaves his words not only with the skill of a well practiced wordsmith but in an enjoyable and informative way too, covering many different topics and telling many an interesting tale and without doubt, remains one of my favourite coarse fishing bloggers.
You certainly don't need to be a fly angler to enjoy the msyteries internal. Erin writes very passionately and it truly shines through, covering her many fly fishing trips and taking in many different aspects that it encompasses, including life itself, I find her writing style refreshing enjoyable and so very evocative.
Dave shares many trips on his lovely river Wye and enjoyable forays to the river Lot in France to name but a few, as well as having a love for cane and pin, never a dull read as there is always something interesting, be that out on the river bank, or sharing his love for wildlife and birds.
Rob writes a mean blog, sharing his various trips, be that after roach, barbel or perch and he certainly has cauught some beautiful fish, always willing to share ideas, about rigs and species, as well as telling some very enjoyable fishing yarns, it has been a real pleasure to read his blog since it began back in December 2011.
I very much enjoy Nathans blog, covering many different rivers from the Avon to the Kennet and Loddon, be it trotting for grayling or after chub and barbel, every article is always a very good read and I wholeheartedly recommend it, certainly one that you should not pass by.
Russells tales from the towpath, is enjoyable and refreshing, sharing his trips on various venues, but what I really enjoy is reading his fishing trips on the Grand Western Canal, a place he really does seem to have an infinity with.
Dave Lumb, an exceptional rod builder, whom writes a long standing fishing blog and he certainly enjoys pike and eel fishing on local drains and lakes, to his roach and barbel fishing trips,as well as some superb photography and articles to help people take better pictures, this coupled with his rod building updates make for a very nice read.
Phil, needs no introduction and writes about many of his fishing trips, covering sturgeon,roach fishing in scotland, barbel and more. One of his recent articles recounts his record crucian capture and long awaited award. Always an enjoyable read and regularly updated.
James is as adept at fishing as he is blogging about it, showing a real forte with rod and pen, sharing some superb fishing trips from his local, urban waterway, I have only been reading his blog since December (I know!), but since that time it has become essential and entertaining reading.
Monty writes an interesting blog, that is a bit different to most and all the more enjoyable because it, covering his own fishing and with a bit of a sideways glance at all other things piscatorial, along with a regular, angling doppelganger feature, makes for quite an interesting and amusing blog.
Dannys angling blog, now I have a very soft spot for this, as he shares the fishing trips he and his father spend together on the likes of the river Dee, as well as other stillwaters and brooks up north. It brings back memories of fishing with my father a lot and I especially found amusing, one of his recent video clips, showing his father not looking too happy with the local bovines.
Brian not only writes an interesting blog regarding his fishing exploits on his local river Wandle, but also targeting pike on the Wye and Thames, a very enjoyable read and one I certainly never bore of. He also pens a very amusing comic strip called Jacks pike which never fails to raise a chuckle.
Darrens blog really shines through, a person who enjoys his fishing as well as sharing it with other people, especially his passion to get involved with his local club and try to get more youngsters involved and back on the rivers, he regularly blogs about his trips on the river Wye, chasing down an elusive double figure barbel, his recent article covering pike fishing at Blenheim palace is also a very good read, if you get a chance do take a look at it.
I have been a fervent reader of Joe and his blog for a long time now and he really is an angler for all seasons, always a joy to read about his fishing trips, be that after old warrior chub in winter, or fishing for trout, barbel or tarpon!
Stuart, someone who I do find a good read, whether he is chasing pike with friends in Ireland or back at home enjoying fishing for those lovely dark tench on a Cheshire mere. He has taken to doing a lot more wildlife photography recently and does tend to post these on facebook a lot, some brilliant pictures and a real joy to look at.
Ben Ward has recently taken to blog writing, a regular angler and one who has enjoyed some very memorable fishing trips, an all rounder who has now started sharing his trips with other bloggers, including some interesting bream and pike fishing posts, as well as a trip to a flooded Dorset Stour. Although he has only just begun, I really do feel his blog will go from strength to strength.
George Basham, is another young angler who originally started off carp fishing in Essex, as well as making his own fishing videos with Fred Philips, he has now started to write his own blog, although he has a passion for carp fishing, he has since started diversifying and has been enjoying some of his local streams and rivers. His first blog tells of his planning and eventual trip to hunt down a new personal best chevin.
