New website - a work in progress - Beta live now! new website Beta versionMy old website, despite a couple of updates & minor facelifts, is vastly outdated, not very visually striking, nor compatible with mobile devices.  So a couple of years ago I started work on a replacement, based on the WordPress platform.  A server error lost all of the work I’d done and my backup corrupted, so I had to start again from scratch!  This setback put me off for a while but there are so many fishing articles and features on there that I felt I should really give them a new, modern home. 

At the moment I have the main nuts & bolts in place. It's still very much in "beta" but I’m steadily importing & updating all my old articles, blog posts & photos, as well as adding a few new reviews, videos and features.  It's almost as time consuming importing the stuff as it is writing it in the first place!

Please take a look at the beta version at:
Leave a comment, on there or on here, and let me know how you think it's going, along with any ideas of how I can improve it (the looks will definitely improve!).

Over the winter I'm planning on improving the looks & layout and once I’m happy, everything will move to and the old site will be no more.  So please check back to see new content & improved looks as soon as I find the time!

Meanwhile, I’m also looking for guest contributors to have their fishing-related articles & blog posts featured on the revamped site…
