Hi Guys

I am a fairly inexperienced coarse angler from Ayrshire who holidayed at Hurst Farm last year, near Bridgenorth, and had a great time catching decent carp and tench using waggler, method feeder, margin pole and off the surface by floating bread. It was heaven and I learnt a lot from other friendly anglers. Only down side, not a lot for my wife and kids to do as they dont fish, crazy or what?

I want to visit this area again and am looking for good fishing with good accommodation and close to amenities etc etc.
Can anyone help?

Any where will do as long as the fishing is good, I just love this coarse fishing, wish I had discovered it 30years ago.

Many thanks guys

Alex

If you go to Shropshire probably best to stay close to, or in a town, most have decent fishing nearby. Ludlow, Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth, Ironbrodge or Bewdley to name a few. There's lots of fishing on the Severn and/or Teme and the clubs are decent value for money and there are plenty of commercial stillwaters. There are some decent caravan sites as well I believe.

Thanks Bluenose, I think you and I have something in common, being bluenoses and fishing.
Thanks for reply, popped into Bewdley last year, lovely place but didn't manage to cast a line.

Hard to find fishing, lodge accommodation and some sort of things for kids to do all in the same place.

Back to surfing the net......

Cheers

Alex
