Angling (62 topics)

A new section (experimental for now) for any Members who fish for/as well as keep fish.
Let's have your fishing tales - yes, even "the one which got away" - and pictures.
It must be stressed though, that this isn't to become a Fishing Forum, we still are predominantly a Fish-Keeping Forum...but let's give it a go to see how it progresses.

Member Profile (42 topics)

Enter your Profile here, this can be a resource for each and every Forum member, but not compulsory, to tell the rest of us something about themselves. For example, some personal (no, not that personal) information and some details of their fishy preferences, including details of both their tank(s) and fish kept. Members will be able to amend and update their profile as often or as rarely as they choose. As ever - photos (within reason) are encouraged.
