I was giving a couple of 70's fishing books by a mate in work, anyone else seen the book in the attachment? Bloody good book covers shore fishing marks all around the coast of Wales. Some of the marks are quite different to how there described in the book now but a good read never the less.

Intresting paragraph on "conger hole" not far from where the Warrior was moored in Milford. Any body ever fished this mark it supposed to be 60-70ft deep holding conger around the 75lb mark.

I used to fish the warrior when i was a nipper, the dangler is probably the best man to ask about the conger hole. they have put a lot of moorings down there now, so im not to sure if it is still fishable!

in recent years clive gammon wrote for a mag called Waterlog (subscription only).
A month ago he was on the Pier at Mumbles talking to the anglers.
His well known book is Tide of Fish.
He has a limited edition book out now called 'Castaway' with Medlar press. Covers the old stories.'

It's a good book so long as you remember when it was written! I have a well-thumbed copy myself. However, compare it with Mike T's notes on Welsh marks on this site - they are far more representative of things as they currently stand :)

Cheers - John
