This site provides mainly information on fishing in the county of Gloucestershire. From the Forest of Dean to Bourton on The Water in the Cotswolds. The county is not only the venue for the world famous Cheltenham Races in March of each year but is a popular venue for pleasure and corporate angling which is available on day ticket or club card as well as the commercial day ticket fisheries. Just click on the navigation tabs at the bottom of the page. Remember that season and/or day tickets are required to fish these venues in addition to the Environment Agency licence which can be obtained online, Click here or at a Post Office. Gloucester boasts a long tradition in the first division of league fishing in both team and individual events (yes it does exist) perhaps the most well known local team being Daiwa Gordon League.
Check out the new Birds Eye Images on the Gloucester Canal home page. Big Carp as well as large Zander and Pike are becoming the prime target of many anglers. I have included piccies of Carp that Jamie caught in the Gloucester Canal towards the Sharpness end (thanks to Julian) one of 24 pounds and another 28 pounds, awesome, thanks for the photo’s. Click on directions to venues and click on tab 3 for two mile bend. When image loads click on birds eye view tab!
I have included a link on some of the pages to the waters that are featured particularly those for the Forest of Dean Angling club. By clicking on the directions link this opens Microsoft Virtual Earth. It may take a short while to load but its worth it. The beauty of this is that you can view the location from an aerial view as well as obtain directions and mileage to the waters. When loaded If the menu does not appear in the left of the page click on collections/ open, then in the menu box right hand side click on unsaved collection hover mouse over the selected venue then select. Aerial is the best view, click on a pin to take you to the location. You can adjust the slider control in the window to + for greater resolution and check out the distance view in lower right of the window. I found best resolution is at around 90-100 yds. Click on directions, if you need them to the venue.I have also included details of some walks in the Forest of Dean in the proximity of Cinderford these include details of the Mines that used to be in these areas and from which a lot of the local areas get their names.Ruspidge halt on the road to Speech House provides free car parking. You can walk up to Steam Mills and the Northern United Colliery site which closed in 1967. Go to the FODAC page. If you have a favourite walk send it to me to share with others on the net.
