Hi mate, I assume the Iron man is marking the deeper water. How deep is it and is there a "sweet spot" there?

The Naze

Is the Naze still fishable, I used to fish there often as a kid when my parents had a caravan at Walton. Most reports seem to focus on the pier, is that where the action is now?

Light tackle/Travel rods

I was thinking of investing in something like this to carry with me during the day. Are there any venues on the Thames that you could get away with minimal tackle, sometimes im near the river but only have a lunch break! lol :D

I'd often wondered if there was anything worth looking at in St Katherines dock. So many sea fisherman work in London and walk down to the river at lunch and wish they'd brought a travel rod with them! :D

Hi mate, thanks for that. I know exactly where you mean. ;) Would tbe most productive time be a rising tide after a blow! I have been off the scene for many years, I used to drive to the coast so being able to fish relatively close to home on the Thames is quite handy; how do you know where you are ...

Hi mate, he had his fingers in lots of pies. Had a uni trace system. I bought a lot of tackle of him back then. I thought he was there to stay. Where do you get your bait and does anyone use the stuff they post to you?

Hey Guys, just to say HI

Im a newbie, after a 20 year break to get married have kids and get divorced, I am dusting off my fishing gear again. >:D< My old haunts were Walton on the naze and Suffolk (Dunwich, Aldborough and Southwold), hope they still fish ok. I have noticed that the Thames seems to be fishable up to Barking...
