just to say now then new to the site thought i should join as going on first braods holiday in august and wanted to get some good info from people who actually have been rather then in a flier or book.

going to be fishing solid for a week so any hotspots or tackle recommended would be a great help dont mind any type of fishing and do a bit of fluff chucking to deabaiting not really bothered about about the pole fishing though.

anyway any advice is very welcome.

Hi Rob, welcome to the forum :wave . I`m sure you already know the Broads is an anglers paradise, which can produce huge bags all over the network. The best person to ask is w44nty who i believe is Norwich born and bred, and is probably the most knowledgeable forumite on fishing the Broads. I think he`s away in his caravan for a week, but i`m sure he`ll point you in the right direction as to baits, rigs, species and locations, as well as the best times of day, year etc. I`m assuming you`ve hired a boat, which will give you an excellent opportunity to get you places you can`t get to via road and foot. What boat have you hired and from what yard?. One last thing, groups of fishermen (and women) are well known for hiring boats for a week and getting to their favourite spot early, so don`t be disappointed, there are simply loads of good "out of the way" moorings on quiet rivers to set up for a days (or nights or weeks) fishing. Have a great holiday. Regards .............. Neil.
