Amazed at qual­ity of fish­ing on the Broads

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

LAST year I en­joyed my first-ever hol­i­day on the Broads, and was stag­gered at the num­bers of fish in the rivers there.

Over the course of a week we cruised around most of the north­ern Broads, stop­ping each night so we could rest up and get a bite to eat.

We chose places on the ba­sis that they were con­ve­nient for moor­ing up, rather than be­ing ob­vi­ous fish­ing spots, but I still couldn’t re­sist wet­ting a line when­ever I got the op­por­tu­nity.

On the hol­i­day I must have fished in about six dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions – all picked at ran­dom – and I got in­stant bites each time.

I had bream to 5lb, lots of qual­ity roach and even a per­sonal-best perch of 2lb 7oz!

So if you are con­sid­er­ing a trip to the Broads, stop hes­i­tat­ing and get it booked right now – it’ll be the best an­gling hol­i­day of your life and the fam­ily will thank you! Roger Ma­callan, Dart­ford
