A lot has been written in the angling press about the effects of weather and lunar conditions on catch rates. However, this is often based on perception and experience and there is little evidence to support these theories.


Many anglers will keep a log of catches, venue, weight, bait etc. but anglers lack the resources to equate catch location, date and time to detailed weather conditions.


‘The Angling Edge’ is a web site (and a future planned mobile app), that allows the angler to gain never before seen information on their catches. Catches can be entered from July 2008 onwards (so dig out those old notebooks and catch reports!), and each catch will be associated with detailed weather and lunar information, based on the date, time and location of your catch. This means you can get a unique insight on your fishing straight away.


After entering your catches, the site provides intelligent and insightful statistics relevant to your fishing, unlike other so called predictive apps and sites, and will help you decide, when, where and how to fish.


The charts can be filtered by venue, species and or month of the year. Want to know the best wind conditions for catching carp on your particular lake? Do the moon phases really have an affect on my lake/any lake? Want to know your peak catch times? ‘The Angling Edge’ will provide you with the information!
