An­gling

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Sport All The Week’s Action... -

If your thing is sea an­gling, then do not miss the plaice bo­nanza from our beaches right down to East­bourne. Be sure to put plenty of bright beads and at­trac­tors on your snoods as plaice love a bit of bling, with lug­worm, rag­worm and sandeels as bait. Please take only what you need and re­turn any you don’t. This way we can, in a small way, try to as­sure the next gen­er­a­tion of an­glers have the same sport as us. I was down the beach at Hythe re­cently and think the dreaded ‘May wa­ter’ could hap­pen this year in April! This al­gal bloom is the kiss of death for the shore an­gler and hangs from your line in strings. It is a nat­u­ral phe­nom­e­non and thank­fully lasts only a short while. The odd mack­erel is show­ing from Dover’s Ad­mi­ralty Pier and this is more proof of our warm­ing sea.
