Living in Poole, Dorset am less than an hour from Chesil to the West and Milford Shingle to the East, with many good areas in between. Might as well be the distance to the moon at the moment though.

I am continually amazed at some distances some travel to fish. Guess I am really lucky these days as can hear the sea at High tide from where sitting writing this now. I tend not to wander far now..But even from here at Westward Ho some the guys go up to Chesil at weekends....Long run....! I sort think now if I cant catch it here...then not bothered about any where else.
about 20 min walk to beach or 20 walk to river waveny.Best of both world

Scotland Poole; Poole Scotland; Extremes of the country but both alluring from a fishing perspective, as well as many others. Hope you're happy up north, despite the weather:)

Where do you fish in Poole then mate?
Hi Eric, apart from the two extremities of Chesil & Milford, there is Southborne beach upto Hengistbury Head, a number of the Chines right down to Sandbanks, and Poole Harbour of course. I'm getting back into sea fishing as the last few years it's been mainly river fishing for barbel & chub, with the Hampshire Avon & Dorset Stour excellent fishing venues, practically on our doorstep.

I used to fish with the Poole Dolphins Sea Angling Club in the eighties. Did Hamworthy Eng ever fish in the Neptune League back then?

Up to 150 miles each way. Denge Marsh, Dungeness, Eastbourne, Brighton or Portsmouth. I try to get a couple of trip a month. Either beach or boat

Just measured it with Google Maps. 100 metres to the beach. If you've been to Hoylake, you'll know that the sea is about another 20 minutes walk away most days.

I feel bad for some of you, because if I walk out of my back gate and on to a bit of track for 15 seconds I'm on the beach. Being new to sea fishing I'm only now getting tackled up for beachcasting. I've got some three small harbour piers within 10 mins of me and some promising rock marks along the way.
