    Re: Rod endorsements

    As usual, the answer is that it all depends. Sometimes the rod has clearly benefited from the input of an expert. I never saw a Daiwa rod, for instance, with Tom Pickering's name on that wasn't an...

    Re: Another craft project.

    I stick mine on the round legs on another box, too, Mick. As long as it fits over it's stable enough, and only tilts a little bit if it's sloppy. Just don't fill your bait box to the brim!

    I've been trying to find out what this Slik is like. I'm not far along the road. In fact, I don't really understand what people mean by "hybrid", unless elastics can mate, and even then it must be...

    Re: Another craft project.

    Have you got something to put your bait and your bits and pieces on? For my little box I've got an old Drennan Baitwaiter bolted to a bit of scrap with a bit cut off an Octoplus thing. (There must be...

    I went back to the woodland pond. It had been a bit slow yesterday, but surely it would be better today? We all know what happens on water surrounded by trees at this time of year, and how hard it...

    Re: Flourocarbon Hook links.

    The few times I've tried fluorocarbon for hooklengths I haven't particularly taken to it, and I've been happy enough with the brands of mono I use. That said, I wouldn't want to be missing out on any...

    Re: Renewing elastics, they are due.

    Apart from a couple of carp-crunching beasts in the new dimensions - wide bore topkits, fat sections - that I bought and barely use, I'm still using much older slimmer poles. None of the topkits...

    Re: Canadian pondweed.

    I always baulked at the twin rake-heads and so on, but when I started to fish for tench on a gravel pit that filled up with pondweed as the summer went on, I bought this small rake on ebay. It looks...

    It's an interesting post, granted. But for all it's judicious air, it contains claims that are no less contentious than any other post. One is that "shrill voices" would criticise regardless, which...

    Re: Simple tips.

    When you plumb up to fish the spot you've picked, find a spot with the same depth a few yards away. You can do something different as regards what you feed or how much with the second spot, and you...

    You were opposed to stopping fishing, and I guess this disposes you to deride any fishery closures as 'ridiculous' and 'a joke'.

    The reasons for stopping, despite the fact that angling MAY be a...

    I think everybody gets a kick from catching big fish, and I'm no different. But they're usually incidental. Or accidental. There's a stretch of river 5 mins from me where anglers fishing carp-style...
