    Well done getting out in this weather guys.

    Mike, Ipads just shouldn’t “play up”. Factory reset mate.

    It's the keyboard John. It freezes and then just switches off. It's at least 7 years old so it's probably time to replace.

    A good excuse to get up to date, but a factory reset will most likely iron out any bugs. Just make sure to do a backup to icloud first.

    Default How did you get on?

    I went to a club lake at Edenbridge this morning. It’s a quite prolific lake in the summer but today was a proper grueler. The car park was pretty crowded for a week day, there was probably more anglers as the rivers are well up at the moment. I had four small roach and I think that was four more than anyone else had. It’s a mixed fishery and there are some fairly large carp, barbel and tench, so I am loath to fish too fine as you are liable to get snapped up. Just before I packed up I picked up a bonus carp of 12lb 2oz which put my Drennan Floatmaster through some rather interesting angles to say the least. I believe they have been discontinued which is a shame. Some anglers don’t like them as they have single leg rings up to the tip excepting the first ring. I have Acolytes and Free Spirit rods but I prefer the action of the Floatmaster over them all. The carp picked up a little finger nail sized piece of rolled bread encrusted with Lo-salt, over liquidised bread. I was using four pound b/s line with three pound hook length to a sixteen barbless animal hook.

    Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.

    A good day and good company as usual with mikench yesterday despite the weather. Really cold and wet first thing and after a couple of hours with nothing to show I thought we were in for a blank then along comes Mr Common in 41" of very clear water, most unexpected. First one snapped me off in a snag, landed the second, around 3lb+, third just threw the hook, still no sign of anything else. Mike helped me retrieve one of my floats with his version of markg's post Old tip for retrieving hook from trees., worked a treat on the end of a landing net handle. Started picking up a few Roach as it warmed up. Looking forward to better weather. Took a pic of Mike hauling Carp but it didn't turn out very well.

    Thanks Gordon. I mentioned my rig retriever in the thread started by Markg and how well it worked.

    Simple report from me. Yesterday I was up on the canal (which anyway would be the only place at the moment).
    So windy! Even a 30 gr feeder and a strong tip didn't let me fish correctly.
    The stretch I planned to fish was taken, and I crossed a few anglers. I suppose everyone got the same idea to enjoy the only dry day on the only possible water.
    But it was too hard at least for me, and about 45 min later, I was back in the car!
    You've never seen dawn. The real dawn. Only the angler knows the exact taste of the morning, the taste of a dawning spring day's bread and coffee. He's the only one having the exorbitant privileges. (René Fallet)
