Welcome to the

Phil (the Fish) Whiting

This is a diary of fishing trips around the UK as and when they occur, by myself (Phil Whiting .... yes I know a very apt name for the topic!!!) my wife Karen, and other fishing friends (Tony Swain, Chris Ball, Nick Cable, Nigel Evans, , Paul Davies, Steve Burling, amongst others...).

It is my hope that this maybe of some interest to others wishing to fish these venues. I suspect that most will be from the following areas:
Kent (Folkestone / Dover / Dungeness),
Bristol Channel (Aust to Lynmouth),
West Dorset (Chesil), and
Suffolk (Aldeburgh / Orford Island).

Bit about 'Phil the Fish'......

I've been sea fishing for the past 35 years on and off, and whilst not being a legendary match fisherman , nor indeed a specimen record holder, I'd like to think that I represent that ordanary breed of sea angler, who probably like yourself, simply enjoys catching fish.....

Last up-dated: Dec. 2010

We have moved ISP's ........
after over 12 years we are being forced to move,
due to UKOnline closing down (as of 20th Dec 2010)

I'm fully aware that site needs updating, and not helped by the fact that over recent years
my fishing time has been greatly reduced and then only really fishing for Mullet
I'll see what we can do over 2011.....

It is with great regret that Dean now feels unable to continue with this, due to a lack of support, from people helping to supply information / material required to make it work :-(

My thanks to Dean for his splendid work to date.

Venues for Disabled Sea Anglers :

Inconjunction with Fred Lawson and Jaybee of North East Sea Angling, we are hoping to construct a database of venues suitable for Disabled Sea Anglers.

In order to do so, I have added a simple entry system for you to enter information about appropriate locations, which will then be used by Fred on his own specialist site:

Read Entries    or    Add a Venue

Other things I hope to add to this site in the near future:

More Colour, add some Pics, More Trips, Index /links for places/dates, maps, more background, diagrams of rigs etc...
suggestions welcome...oh , and the fishing reports as well .. aquarium@uk-fishing.com
