    Re: Clutch or backwind

    Thats one of the (many) reasons I hate double handles. Like having a mincer attached to your rod if a lump tears off.

    Re: Clutch or backwind

    I'm a shameless and unrepentant backwinder....probably because I grew up in an era when clutches were as sticky as hell. The clutches on my reels are almost all screwed down tight.

    I'm perfectly...
  3. Re: Why not have lure fishing at Farmoor reservoir?

    That is one of the most narrow minded and bigoted comments Ive ever seen on here. I’m glad Farmoor doesn’t allow spinning as it means I’m unlikely ever to meet you there.

    I’ve wasted far too much...
  4. Re: Why not have lure fishing at Farmoor reservoir?

    I’ve fished Farmoor for years. There is no possible way that I could ever be described as or mistaken for a toff.....as those on here who know me will confirm.
  5. Re: Why not have lure fishing at Farmoor reservoir?

    Good luck with that. Farmoor is currently closed.

  7. Re: Where will you go and what Tackle will you use when........

    Without wishing to sound pessimistic that's pretty much how I feel. I'm making no plans as the timescale is so uncertain. That's assuming I manage to dodge this bloody thing.

    re: Are you still buying new tackle?

    Its my birthday shortly and there was a rod I fancied. To be honest I did hesitate wondering if I'd ever get to use it ( at all...gulp) but in the end decided that was paranoid nonsense.....so I had...

    Re: Confessions of an Angler

    A few years back I was utterly obsessed with the Zander at Bury Hill and desperate to catch a double figure fish. I got close several times with “big nines” including one fish which looked easily...

    Re: What's your favourite feature to fish to?

    Totally agree....I am a sucker for a patch of lilies and not least because they have rarely let me down.

    Re: Auto-Renewing April 1st Licences

    If we are grounded for a few weeks I guess the administrative costs of renewing/reissuing licences would be prohibitive. However if we are grounded for [say] 3 months then I dont see why licences for...

    Re: Lockdown effect on fishing ?

    I dont think it will do the fish much harm...it might do them some good to have a proper break. It will certainly do the banks some good.

    I wouldnt like to say what effect ia break would have on...

    Re: Can we.......

    I’ve just remembered I have the best part of a pint of reds secreted in Mrs S’s fridge. I guess these need releasing back into the wild....a bit of home grown rewilding.

    Sadly I agree. I guess a few lucky individuals will have access to waters that dont breach the rules on non essential travel but for most of us I think its off for the forseeable.
