    Yer a nice part of the world ,my parents ,( God bless them ) used to live near Warminster ,and when I visited them ,apart from fresh water fishing would make my way over to chesil ,but don't forget the other way and the Bristol Chanel marks ,can give good returns to ,and somewhere else to go if a change of scenery is needed good luck ,ps as mark said ,read as much about venues before you set foot out , safety is no 1 good luck n tight lines :)

    Your carp gear will be fine for a great many locations on the south coast. Chesil isn't the only place to fish, Preston beach can give some good fishing and a carp rod and 3oz weights are as much as you need.
