    Re: Pixies Lake, Bourne End

    I have not been there for at least 30 years - didn't it used to be owned by the bloke (senior moment - forget his name) who does articles for Anglers Mail?

    His name just came to mind - Dave Coster?

    Re: To pole or not to pole

    Well I must confess that a few months ago I bought a 8m system whip. There are a few spots with overhanging trees where I can now ship the float out into position. It is also sometimes used for...

  4. Re: Tying spade end hooks and hooklengths,or the inability to.

    Following on from the previous two posts I use a similar method of tying. I don't trust the knotless knot not slip without a hair so I do two knotless knots - it works well. I use the gp106 hooks...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Hertsbloke, I used to fish there sometimes before I moved to Hampshire. There are some nice roach in there, had them to 1lb 11oz but I am sure there are much bigger ones in there. Also lots of 2lb...

    Bracket, many thanks indeed for showing your video of your spade end knot. In my 60 years of fishing I have not seen that version of knot before. I will certainly be experimenting! Thanks again.

    Re: Brolly vs Day shelter thingy

    Unless I am doing an overnighter I use a 50inch brolly instead of a day shelter because it is so quick to put up and down if the rain stops, no need to even get up. I do wish though that a 55inch...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Started (just as it got light) on a very quiet, beautiful part of the K&A canal, I fish here quite often but it is just so hard, no bites so walked back to a flowing pound where the Kennet runs into...
  9. Re: Tying spade end hooks and hooklengths,or the inability to.

    Nottskev, I use different hooks types for different baits. Now 99% of my fishing is for roach. Kamasan b525 in sizes 12 and 14 and b980 in 8 and 10 for flake: b980 for maggots, lobworms, wheat and...
  10. Re: Tying spade end hooks and hooklengths,or the inability to.

    Nottskev, a good point (no pun intended).

    I prefer eyed hooks, for each hook I use two knotless knots. This means that the line has to pass through the eye 3 times which does restrict the...

    All of a sudden this thread has got boring (that's my hypothesis) - what about the bloody hooks!

    Of course there are exceptions but most old tackle compared to quality new tackle is absolute rubbish!

    I started on a flowing pound of the K&A canal, float fishing punched bread for roach. No bites but I was sitting there happy enough when a man started to talk to me. He was definately "odd" and I...

    Caelan, what size roach were being caught? I ask because I sometimes fish the Newbury AA stretch which is a bit further downstream.

    Logan-paul, you can make a weird sort of expander type hook bait using pieces of bread crust from a sliced loaf. Put several bits of bread crust into a expander pump along with water, gelatine and a...

    Yesterday received in post (eBay) a GRANDSLAM reed cutter. It looks right, have not tested it yet. It is shaped more like a hook and is riveted not just moulded in plastic!

    It's poorly made, the blade is moulded in plastic, there are two holes in the blade and in the moulding process plastic is pushed into the holes to help secure it in place. I appreciate that it is...
