    Re: Favourite presenter on youtube

    I enjoy Easy Fishing with Bill Allen.
    Can't imagine he's ever muttered the word "awesome" while fishing!
    He gives good advice on getting kids fishing cheaply.

    Yeah! Its become a habit now on my last night shift, if I sleep in the day I struggle to adjust back to daytime life. Much better to go straight to some water and fish until I have to get the kids...

    Re: Whips

    If anyone is looking for a very inexpensive whip setup for kids, I really recommend the 3m set from Decathlon. It is £11 and comes with 2 rigs and floats, a disgorger and a plummet. My little girl...

    Re: Why oh why oh why...

    I agree about the music on angling videos, I also switch off any once somebody uses the word "bruv" when talking to their mate on them.
    I fully accept I have become a miserable old git.

    Fishing, cycling and running after kids will make you fitter than an Olympic athlete! I like roving predator fishing, but can't catch any! Best of health to you and enjoy the angling!
