Welcome to PurePiscator.com

Pure Piscator was produced between the years 2006-2009, from the efforts of a rag-tag group of normal, everyday anglers, referred to collectivily as 'The Work Party'. Saltwater or Fresh, Coarse, Game or Sea, traditional or modern, here it mattered not, the idea simply to create a varied collection of articles and writings from across the angling world.

Hopefully this site has reflected all that is positive about the pastime of angling, reminded us of its purer virtues and that a little bankside etiquette still has its place. At the same time, the aim of this site was to be a little different, somewhat entertaining and, most importantly, a welcoming place - an online piscatorial refuge if you like.  So whilst that rod can't be in your hand, delve within, relax, look back and hopefully enjoy.

Today's Quote

They fish to a ritual and they won't get up early or stay late. Like most people these days they want their success dished up on a platter and they regard the word 'work' as synonymous with 'unpleasant'.

- Richard Walker, taken from the Carp Catchers letters, 1954
