Ive always fancied giving it a go but aint got a clue where to start, gear/tactics etc. Is that Dyffryn place any good? Not too far to travel from me? (Barry). Will deffo invest in a licence 1st if i do decide to try it as i seen in the local rag (Barry & District) a few people caught there without licences recently and they got fined a few hundred quid.
i fished warren mill yrs ago m8 when it was used by glamorgan anglers. but a bit of advice if u want 2 try course fishing 1st is 2 not get a season ticket, but go 2 course lakes that u can fish daily for a few quid, c if u fancy doin it this way. there r a few about apparently. i only no of cefn mably lakes, that u can buy day ticket. but u can fly fish 4 trout there as well. hope this helps..that is st mellons way cardiff, right opposite the old cefn mably hospital....... ....
Never fished either of the above fisheries but go to Ian heapses a lot went to day and fished the tench lake it was hard going fishing at 11 metres my back was aching a bit afterwards hooked 4 carp and lost 3 landed 1 about 6lb had a nice tench and a few roach bream etc from the match lake a hard session though!!! Cant wait to get sea fishing again!!!!!!!
i go to heapses alot in the summer all 3 lakes are great but for this time of year id fish the bottam right hand side lake(which is the deepest) feed little and often and u,ll catch plenty. use light line and small hooks too, more chance of catching
