GERRYS FISHING

She has a 12 litre 500hp Scania engine, enabling her to cruise comfortably at 14-15 knots, with a top speed of 20 knots.

MCA 60 Mile Licence. All Year 24 Hours. 12 passengers plus crew. We practice Catch & Release of Conger Eels.

ALASKA SALMON FISHING CHARTERS

Would you like to try something different? Want to catch big salmon? Then this the place to go - ALASKA. Try Alaska Salmon Fishing Charters.

WHITEWATER CHARTERS

Want to go Shark Fishing. Then this is the boat to get on! with skipper Andrew Alsop on "WHITE WATER 11" out of Milford Haven, West Wales. "WHITE WATER 11" captured the Welsh Blue Shark Record in 2005 with a fish of 214lbs. Where did he get the fishing bug? Fishing out of Plymouth on "ELECTRIC BLUE". That will be another wife chasing me about being a fishing widow!

KENT CHARTER FISHING

Want to go Bass Fishing in Kent. Then try this vessel.

FIRE FOX FISHING CHARTERS

Skipper Mike Williams operates an Evolution 38 from the busy Port of Dover. Mike operates both diving and fishing charters. Take a look at his great website for more information.

OCEAN WARRIOR CHARTERS

Come fishing with Dave Elliot on "OCEAN WARRIOR 111" and maybe catch the BIG ONE. Dave fishes from the Port of Newhaven, Sussex. Like all modern day skippers Dave practises "Catch & Release" so conservation of our specie of Conger Eel will occur. Bring your camera for memories of the day.

EXCALIBUR 111 CHARTERS

Operating from Eastbourne Marina Excalibur 111 Charters operate a Blythe 33 Catamaran powered vessel for angling charters.

FISHING REEL REPAIRS

This website will get you interested should your fishing reel have a breakdown or you fancy new bearings after each seasons use. These guys are few and far between so bookmark this site for the future.


WESSEX SPECIMEN GROUP
Are you a shore angler in the Wessex Region? Do you have a real passion for angling? Do you enjoy specimen or match fishing? Then why not not join our dedicated team?

TRADER JACKS

A new Online fishing tackle website located in the UK for all of your tackle needs. Buy your Eddystone Eel Lures here.

NATIONAL FEDERATION OF SEA ANGLERS

This site has been recently updated and is now pretty generic. All angling Webrings and Banner rings have been discontinued without informing anyone.........even the BCC. Do these people really care?
The organisation working for the sport of sea angling in England and recognised by the H. M. Government and Sport England. The N.F.S.A is prominent in Conservation, Youth & Development, it's Members Services and the promotion of the English Sea Angling Team for competitions globally. The website also contains a list of all the U K Sea Angling records together with some pictures. A list of specimen sizes is also listed on the website for those interested in obtaining N.F.S.A medals etc.

European Federation of Sea Anglers

The web site of the E.F.S.A, with all the information about events, championships, records and rules you could need.

Electric Blue Fishing Charters
Tony Allen (webmaster of the BCC), of Electric Blue fame from the Port of Plymouth, now operates from Jupiter Inlet, Atlantic Coast of Florida, USA. In the year of AUGUST 2017 will see the operation of a new vessel, which is a 35' AMERACAT. Everything you need to know about fishing here in Florida and the part Electric Blue played in the history of British conger fishing is featured on our website. Want to fish in the sun....its usually in the 90's. Take a look and see what we catch.

I.G.F.A - International Game Fishing Association

The BCC recently sent I.G.F.A a life-size model of the record eel for their soon to be opened World Fishing Centre in Florida - this link is to a mention of them on the World of Fishing web-site - some other interesting stuff there too.

The webmaster recently visited the I.G.F.A in Florida in 2006 at Dana Beach and I have to say I was disappointed at the state of the place. The I.G.F.A certainly needs an injection of money as a global organisation. Many of the exhibits need important maintenance as they are showing signs of neglect.

Deepsea.co.uk
Chris CAINES, Skipper of Tiger Lily out of Weymouth and some more skippers have put together a nice site with loads of info - check it out. Probably the top site for gaining info on Charter Boats & Skippers in the UK and now Internationally. This is a professional organisation operated for its Charter skippers members. This website grows monthly and is professionally maintained.

CARRICK LEE 111 FISHING CHARTERS

Skipper BCC Member Frank Shaw and his new Procharter P3 Boat operating from the Port of Newhaven.

http://www.charterboats-uk.co.uk
A site that lists all of the UK Charter Boats that are licensed in accordance with the MCA Regulations. If your charter boats not listed here is it operating illegally? Are you covered by insurance? You may be surprised to learn that if it does not conform to the MCA Regulations then you are not covered by any insurance company.

NORWOOD ANGLING
Norwood Angling Centre is a Fishing Tackle Shop in the South East of London with over 40 years experience. All tackle can be purchased from there extensive online shop.

Shark Angling Club of Great Britain (S.A.C.G.B)
This site needs updating. It now contains some history of the S.A.C.G.B. but is not really a S.A.C.G.B website. Its all about sea angling from LOOE in Cornwall rather than the S.A.C.G.B

FAQ - UK Sea Fishing
FAQ = Frequently Asked Questions (in case you didn't know!) - not too many graphics but loads of other links - saves me some work!

"Fishing with Shelley & Courtney (TV Show)
The people who gave us that very nice award for the BCC website.

Professional Boatman's Association
A professional body representing the interests of boatman and lists the regulations governing the operation of UK Charter Boats etc. produced by the MCA. Never go fishing from an Unlicensed vessel as you will not be covered by insurance as this will be revoked by the insurance company. If your a Charter Skipper it pays to be a member of this organisation.

BASS ANGLER'S SPORT FISHING SOCIETY
A site dedicated to the conservation of one of the UK's premier sporting fish.

STRIPERS ON LINE

BOYCE IMAGES
Renowned photographer William Boyce has a great website. Take a look at the images of underwater fish scenes you cannot fail to be impressed. Great work William.

REALLY WRECKED S.A.C
In their own words...this site is packed with more crap than a Shakespeare Catalogue. If you want to read it as it happened this is the website for you. They all have a good sense of humour......the only requirement for joining the club. Nicely designed site, however I think it may dead as its not been updated in the last few years.

GAME FISHING IN MADEIRA
Go Game Fishing in Madeira on the "OUR MARY" introduced by the late Ron Cowling from Weymouth. Great website with super photo's. Wish I was there! Thanks Ron, you were one of the pioneers from the UK.

NATIONAL MARINE AQUARIUM OF THE UK

The National Marine aquarium of the UK. Now featuring the largest fish tank in Europe with 18 inch thick glass.
I have viewed many aquariums around the world and this one for a National prestige can only be termed as poor. Also it's very expensive for a family to VISIT!!

TED TUCKERMAN ONLINE
Well known Westcountry TV celebrity and fishing correspondent Ted Tuckerman has his own comprehensive website with a lot of topics on sea fishing and now some abroad. Sadly the content is not well organized and many of the ICONS do not work!

MARINE TIMES
Irish newspaper for the fishing industry, but includes a useful section on Scottish fishing news.

TOTAL SEA FISHING MAGAZINE

FISHING FAN
This has to be one of the most professional fishing sites I have seen. Yes it's a UK site. I won't give to much away. Just have a surf and you can't failed to be impressed.

SEA ANGLERS CONSERVATION NETWORK
As the name implies it's about conservation. Well worth a surf.

LEGEND LURES
WELCOME to the website of Legend Lures and Capt. Roddy Hays - bumbling globe-trotting big-game skipper, itinerant creator of innovative and experimental lures, and sometime inventive designer of tackle and fishing methods (well, that's what some people politely say, anyway. Unfortunately not everyone else is so kind.....).

SEA FISHING IN IRELAND
Here is a website that any angler visiting Ireland should look at. Actually, I will re-word that.....ALL ANGLERS should take a look at this great site. The authors says he an amateur? It lists all the shore marks and all the charter boats info available in IRELAND. Just check out the new TUNA CATCHES in 2001 and 2002.

OFFSHORE SPORTFISHING CHARTERS-CAPE TOWN-SA.
Sportfishing in Cape Town, South Africa. If you want any further information email our treasurer who has just returned from a trip. Perhaps I can get him to write an article.

KINSALE ANGLING-IRELAND
We organize charters with our 3 sea-angling boats. We also offer accommodation - both self-catering and B&B. A tackle shop also forms part of the Co-Op. Last year we had a party from London for a 5 day charter. On that memorable charter we took 27 congers on one day, and 21 more the following day. \we have great fishing generally. Our prices are very good I think by any standards. However, they are particularly good when converted to sterling.

LEADERTEC
A company involved in terminal tackle and leader supplies.

BRITISH DISABLED ANGLING ASSOCIATION
The British Disabled Angling Association is a registered charity set up in 1996 to develop fishing opportunities for disabled people. We were created following increased calls for the formation of a group to develop coarse, sea and game fishing opportunities for people with disabilities.

NORTH SOUTH & CENTRAL SAC
The founder members were all fed up with the politics of clubs they were in. The various clubs around seemed to be run by rules regulations and dictatorial committees. We decided to form a club with as few rules as possible and no committee. Although we have a president, chairman, secretary and a treasurer. All members are equal every member including juniors have a vote. We came up with the idea that as our members would hopefully come from all over Bristol and beyond we could call ourselves North and South. Read on...........
