Q: I’ve been a boat an­gler for 20 years and now want to start shore fish­ing. I haven’t got a clue how to read a tide ta­ble, can you help?

PF says: Tide books con­tain all of the tides for ev­ery day, dur­ing each month of the year and are bril­liant for plan­ning fu­ture trips and col­lect­ing bait. Most will give high water (HW) and low water (LW) times along with the size of the tide, usu­ally in me­tres. So, on Satur­day Au­gust 5th, 2017, HW at Lon­don Bridge will be 00.53am. The next HW on the same day will be 13.21pm and the size of each tide will be 6.3m and 6.4m, so, it’s build­ing up to a spring tide.

There is ap­prox­i­mately six hours be­tween HW and LW, depend­ing on the size of each tide.

See page 130 for the lat­est tide ta­bles.
