Hi,

Just stumbled across these forums by accident.....and got stuck here for hours. :D . I'm looking for some advice on fishing Chesil - I used to fish it around a dozen times a year and have so far failed to catch anything of note. As luck would have it, I now have accomodation near Eype, and so will be able to concentrate my efforts a bit more. Being based in Birmingham, a lot of time was spent practicing casting, and in my prime I was capable of 230+ yards. I lost the urge for casting some years back, but have got the fishing bug again. Can anyone guide me in tackle and tactics for bumping up the catch rate a bit?

From reading some of the other threads I have a feeling that always aiming at the horizon may have been utterly the wrong tactic...... I'm looking at day sessions as well as night, and would love to catch just about anything that isn't a pouting!!!

Thanks, and well done on a cracking site.

Excellent. In all the time I've fished Chesil, I've only managed one or two bumper sessions of doggies at night- otherwise it's been pouting at night, and bugger all during the day (except mackerel, bless 'em)

A bit of coaching would go a long way - thanks. :)
