    Re: Help a reclusive angler

    The upper Bristol Avon at Melksham isn't that far away and far more accessible than the upper Hants Avon which only really becomes accessible at and below Salisbury.

    Re: I thought it was just a myth

    About a decade ago fishing on Throop with pellets in 4ft of water, a duck was diving and taking the pellets and being a nuisance when it suddenly shot to the surface with half its tail feathers...

    I don't fish Revels very often but it is/was (unless they've suddenly opened up some much bigger lakes) a series of very small ponds, even the top lake (might be the old match lake) was only a...

    Re: fishing licence just arrived

    From what I can figure they probably do a daily batch run of printing, doing say up to 10,000 or 20,000 in a run. It seems that on several days there were problems with the run but due to the...

    Re: Sorting out bigger roach.

    It's a funny time of year for roach; just about the time they are either spawning or about to spawn and probably best left alone for a month. What I once found though on a water stuffed with small...

    Re: Non migrating trout

    Apart from trout stocked in the past there are several sources of non-migratory trout in the Thames. Several of the chalk streams that flow into the Thames still have breeding populations of brown...

    In the days of 'At the Tail of the Weir' the old Thames Conservancy stocked tens of thousands of trout every year, which may have helped a little!

    Re: Just too many rules.

    The problem with the 'no tins' rule is that EVERY angler claims that "they always take them home" but it's clear that they don't! One club I was involved in didn't have a rule but through a tie-up...

    Re: Monofilament - then and now.

    Bayer 0.10mm was always 1.1lb.

    The problem is that lines were/are often understated in breaking strain so Maxima 2lb breaks at 2lb 13oz (in my tests). Similarly lines are often thicker than stated...
  14. Re: River Close Season – Is it time for a rethink?

    It was possible in the early 80s to legally coarse fish the rivers in Devon and Cornwall, so fishing English rivers 12 months isn't entirely outside our experience. There were other places with brief...

    Re: Feeding a swim...

    Back in 1991 the European Supercup was fished on Holme Pierpoint by 200 top anglers. I watched in awe as one Belgian angler put 56, yes, 56, large (bigger than grapefruit) balls of groundbait in...

    Re: Suggestions needed--

    Must admit the last time I had this problem it was a tiny groove in the roller in the bale on a Mitchell Match; soon fixed with a new roller. I must have a good check of my rods and reels soon!

    With 2lb Maxima when waggler fishing with sunk line I have never had this happen in practice. I've had the line pulled sideways by the tow of the water though.

    Re: Sinking match lines

    Nylon has a density very close to that of water, if anything fractionally denser than water. Sinking or floating lines comes down to the 'finish' on the lines. In the old days Bayer Perlon was the...
