Articles by Eric Edwards

Eric Edwards

Eric Edwards is forty five years of age, a logistics manager and lives in St. Helens, near Liverpool with his wife and three children. An angler since the age of six, he has specialised in catching specimen coarse fish for the last thirty years.

Notable captures include a record tench, caught in 1983 and a bream of 15lbs 2oz, just 4oz off the record at the time of capture. More recently, Eric has had great success with big pike, taking a number of thirty pound plus fish including no less than three over 37lbs in weight with the largest going 41lbs 8oz, caught in 2001.

Eric's pike fishing ambitions include the capture of a Welsh "thirty" to compliment others from England, Ireland and Scotland. Most of Eric's fishing is done in the North West of England on such waters as the Ribble, upper Severn and Cheshire Meres. His constant fishing companion is his son, Joe, who is fourteen years of age.

Barbel Year - The Hunt Begins

This month I want to concentrate on choosing a swim for barbel. Most people only use one method of swim selection, information passed on from another angler who's either had a good catch himself or has seen someone else catching. This is ok, if a little unadventurous but barbel swims are really not hard to spot and with a little experience you can find your own swims fairly easily.
