My Top 8 Fishing Blogs

Here’s my top 8 fishing blogs (in no particular order!). Hopefully this list contains the best fishing blogs but if you know any more please pop a link into the comments below.

Number 8 – Totally Awesome Fishing

Graeme and Mike Pullen, seem to be at the forefront of the video magazine format style video. Any angler could learn from Graeme’s wealth of experience, I myself have put the infamous “twitching sprats” technique into practice more than a few times, to erm great success. Being from a similar neck of the woods as the TAF team, I have fished many of the waters which feature on their TAF channel, in fact, I was once fishing the Throop Stretch of the River Stour struggling for bites when Graeme and Mike swooped along the opposite bank hooking into pike time and time again. It was a shameful performance on my part but I don’t feel so bad because it was a bit like playing five a side with Ronaldo on the other team.

Number 7 – Chris Wesley Fishing Videos

Chris’ string of films demonstrate a masterclass in specimen angling. Chris latest videos are some of the best produced angling videos around. There is always some good fish in the net at the end of the day. Perhaps Chris’s speciality are beautiful carp from established southern gravel pits.

Number 6 – Carl and Alex Fishing

In a sport which is dominated by grey bearded pipe smokers Carl and Alex are proof that fishing does still appeal to the younger generation. Now teamed up with Anglers Mail, the young duo are already far more capable anglers than I will probably ever be.

Number 5 – Dan Jones Carp and Coarse Swansea

South Wales finest fishing blog, features an angler and his exploits around the local still water fishings and some prestigious welsh rivers. A talented angler and an all round nice bloke. Recommended viewing.

Number 4 – Wilderness TV

Wilderness TV are purveyors of fine fly fishing films both informative and well shot they are a pleasure to watch. My personal favourite “Fly Fishing in the Black Mountains” was the inspiration for a recent trip up to Grwyne Fawr Reservoir in search of wild brown trout.

Number 3 – The Wild North

My perfect life would be living in a cabin in Canada driving around boats and quad bikes, shooting guns in the air and doing fishing. Of course there are further aspects to a life in the wild. This film documents them,  a window from the civilised world out into the Wild North.

Number 2 – Fishing Britain

This is a fairly recent edition to my youtube playlists, a spin off program from the Field Sports Channel (also excellent if you are into your hunting and shooting sports). This youtube magazine is fronted by Hywel Morgan fly fishing legend backed up with regular appearances from angling legends like northern monkey Ant Glascoe Junior and submariner Richard Chapman. This show is the best thing to happen to fishing since the invention of the always hilarious boilie throwing sticks.

Number 1 – Back of the landing net

This channel provided me the inspiration to bore people with my own fishing exploits. Although, Back of the Landing net is far from boring, with genuine laugh out loud moments my personally favourite is Jay falling into King Vincent’s Lake on Somerley Estate (another one of my old stomping grounds). If you watch the series from start to end you truly do see an evolution of Chris and Jays fishing abilities, as well as increased production value. Despite recently breaking it into the main stream with fast cars and sponsorship deals on tap these two Dorset lads remembered there roots and built a friendly active community. On top of this they regularly organise charity events which include matches and the Three Peaks Challenge, I partook, in the Three Peaks Challenge with the boys and it was hard work but a great laugh.
