Welcome John,
A wealth of knowledge is to be found and shared on our forum, TFF,".
I must admit I haven't done much in the way of angling up in your neck if the woods but I had a lurcher who enjoyed herself on Bottisham Fenn! ( not sure of the spelling now)
Say no more.
Mr B
The close season is an important and interesting time for the Angler who set out to catch big fish. It is a timely opportunity for him to make new tackle or renovate old. There are no end of jobs to do, apart from those horrible things called Gardens!

John Welcome to the forum, I fell in love with the fens in 1954 for its angling and wildfowling, many happy memories.

Many thanks to you all for your welcome.
Mr B...I remember learning how quickly a lurcher can cover ground as I watched mine disappear into the distance near Crowland.

Welcome JL I’m sure you’ll enjoy the banter, pull up a pew by the fire and pour a glass of your favourite tipple… :cheers:

I'm due to stay near Boston for a week next month, but that's not very near you.

Welcome aboard John. :Hat:
Not a fish was visible that first time I visited Beechmere; an utter
stillness brooded over the place and I felt the strange and sinister atmosphere which, so the story goes,
has been the cause of several suicides.’
