STEVE FITZ­PATRICK ED­I­TOR-IN-CHIEF

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

IHAVE to agree with Steve Ringer’s com­ments in his ex­clu­sive col­umn this week, where he says this is a fan­tas­tic time of year for fish­ing. There is so much va­ri­ety on of­fer right now – the carp are hav­ing a real munch be­fore the colder weather ar­rives, bar­bel are feed­ing well, while the rivers and still­wa­ters are alive with roach, skim­mers and bream.

Re­ports of some mas­sive perch are al­ready fil­ter­ing into the Angling Times of­fices, and the preda­tor sea­son hasn’t even kicked in prop­erly yet!

Any­one think­ing about putting their tackle away in the next few weeks must be mad!

Talk­ing of va­ri­ety, Martin Bowler has been filling his boots with all man­ner of fish from some great lo­ca­tions, and his col­umn this week gives us all a glimpse into what it’s like to be a true all-round an­gler. It’s re­ally in­spir­ing stuff.

So what are you plan­ning? If you’re not sure what to go for, or where to head, then our Where to Fish and Match Re­sults sec­tions can put you di­rectly on the swims where the fish are on the feed.

We’ve got two new ad­di­tions to the mag this week as well – Tommy Pick­er­ing’s new Tip of the Week col­umn and the In the Swim fea­ture which goes be­low the sur­face to re­veal how you can get the best out of your next peg. What­ever you choose to do, en­joy your fish­ing…
