    Re: Anyone fishing?

    Self employed in a pretty seasonal business. I don't actively chase work. On average, I work hard for about three months of the year. The hope is that once I hit 55, I'll not even have to pretend any...

    Re: Using tackle how you like.

    Alan, if you can't see the hypocrisy in your own post, then it's perhaps not worth the time in explaining it. Needless to say, your initial post comes across a bit like a teenager demanding "respec"...

    Re: Using tackle how you like.

    You can dislike doing something without effectively denouncing the practice, which is exactly what you've just done. I do very little but floatfish. I don't particularly like legering. The difference...

    Re: Using tackle how you like.

    Sticking one line in about how people should be more accepting of alternate methods of fishing can't disguise the fact that the rest of your post is basically an intolerant rant about people using...

    Re: Anyone fishing?

    No I have other stuff to do, if I actually make it out of my hibernation coma. I'm doing and spending so little that I'm actually saving some money on my bare baseline income. Quite handy when I have...

    Re: Using tackle how you like.

    I quite like using unconventional tackle/methods, or standard tackle/methods unconventionally. Being told that I shouldn't do something is a red rag to a bull. Being told that something doesn't, or...

  9. Re: Oy-vey! From Tackle & Guns Magazine- re: Angling Direct

    I don't suppose that their store acquisitions and expansions do a great deal to help their balance sheet, at least in the short term. I was a little surprised that they kept up such expansion into...

    Re: The lack of good fishing articles.

    Once I came to terms with that I was far happier watching it. Whilst I don't sit there gritting my teeth, I still struggle a little with Bob's seeming inability to even slightly improve his angling...

    Re: The lack of good fishing articles.

    Whether we like it or not, angling is an ageing demographic which this forum highlights in spades. Most of us don't really want what's on offer for free, or at little cost. The truth is that our...

    Re: Too much bait?

    I've long believed that lots of anglers use far too much feed, especially on more natural, or lightly stocked venues. You can also add waters with high levels of natural food. Even if the fish aren't...

    Re: John Wilson rod identification

    It's the latter that I was getting at, not that it was a Masterline/Wilson rod. I seem to remember reading (it might have been his autobiography) that the very earliest versions of the Wilson Avon...

    Re: John Wilson rod identification

    I suspect that the black ring in the cork handle might be helpful. I know Shimano were fond of this feature back in the day. However, having found (original) Diaflash and Powerloop models with it,...

    I've had some for several years now. They're pretty damned good. I find that they replicate the sensitivity of a much finer tipped float whilst being far easier to see at distance. The only slight...

    Re: Accessory chair.

    I have had three different Korum chairs over the years. As far as I was concerned, quality was reducing over time and weight was increasing. In many respects, I like a seatbox. However, I don't like...

    I can't get excited for any particular type of float. Naturally, I have my favourites, but they are of multiple types for different purposes. The items I tend to use almost every time out are quick...

    Re: Ribble rising fast

    Nothing particularly exceptional on the Swale. No one in this part of the valley has been daft enough to build really close to it anyway.

  19. Re: Recommendations for a 13ft stick float rod for roach fishing.

    Under load, quite similar. With little load (casting and the initial part of a strike), more through. Pretty much as I'd expect as a difference between a waggler rod and a trotting rod. As ever, if...
  20. Re: Recommendations for a 13ft stick float rod for roach fishing.

    I've not done anything with one to be able to make that call. However, with only a brief waggle to go on, and knowing that it was bought for £50, I was reasonably impressed. Not my idea of a trotting...
  21. Re: Recommendations for a 13ft stick float rod for roach fishing.

    I've got something that needs doing, that I really don't want to do, so what better way to prevaricate than to get the scales out instead.;)

    Here's a few comparisons between matching rods.

  22. Re: Recommendations for a 13ft stick float rod for roach fishing.

    The weights given may be a little out due to product variance. I'll also not claim that my scales are calibrated and perfect. However, they are adequate for a fair comparison. In the event of the...
