Welcome to the new Ilkeston Fishing website, my name is Andy Morley. Fishing was a huge hobby of mine as a kid where my dad started taking me from the age of 10ish I think. I used to go every weekend, mainly fishing the local Erewash Canal with my good mate Matt.
I have recently taken up fishing again, I have a family of my own now and my son Thomas has always wanted to go. Tom is 7 now so I thought he was about the right age to start (maybe a little young still).
I started looking for “Ilkeston Fishing” in Google to find useful information about the local fishing scene, there was hardly anything online and no site to fit the bill.
The reason I have set the site up is simple really, I wanted to record my progress and what I learn from each trip, I want to create a site which both me and Tom can look at when we are older and smile!
I also wanted to create useful pages about local fisheries, venues, tackle shops etc… So watch this space.
I run my own Internet marketing agency in Ilkeston which has given me the knowledge and opportunity to create the site.
Ok, thanks for reading my first update.
