Blogs - check out five of the best

As the early onset of Autumn turns many people's thoughts to another winter's pike fishing campaign, what better than a good fishing blog to get you fired up ready to get out there and at 'em again..?

They're not all about pike fishing, but then some pike anglers fish for other species (apparently...).

Just click on the links to explore a few...

You've guessed it, Lumbland is the blog of one Dave Lumb, the PAC's webmaster as well as acclaimed rod builder and Abu Ambassadeur anorak. A boatload of barbel, where Dave's dour wit and passion for collecting interesting slugs shines through.

Eric Edwards's pikefishingUK blog charts his trips in pursuit of our number on predator throughout the winter, along with forays after other species. Click here to read about Eric's capture of a river 30 last season.

Matt Jahans never looked back after buying a Portabote. "Fishing afloat is a very enjoyable way to fish that allows better access to stretches of river and opens up previously un-fishable swims to the angler," he says. Go to HECHTJ√ĄGER (that's foreign for Pike Hunter...) to find out more.

Fishing is Great features Mike Hastings's trips to the Fens in search of pike and zander, often accompanied by his youngsters. One to savour if you're looking to start your nippers fishing.

Mike's Waterlog charts the angling adventures of Mike Kelly. Among Mike's claims to fame are organising the annual PAC Convention.

If you're looking to attend a meeting or two this winter, check out the links down the right hand side of the PAC's blog. Many regions now post details of speaker nights and other activities online.
