    Re: Chub and the future

    This is a river which sums up what chub are facing in urban stretches and I hate to say it but I think it's going to go downhill for you there. There will be the odd big one left and a seemingly...

    Re: Weighing in my landing net?

    Yes I do, That's a good point that the net is likely to get heavier when releasing a fish on the whole, to be honest I'd rather lose an ounce or two, knowing the only thing the fish has touched is my...

    Re: South East London

    I've fished the Darent and Cray and they are really really tiny, further afield the Medway around Maidstone may be a better bet

    Where in the New forest did you fish a river?

    Re: How did you get on?

    Me neither to be honest, I can't explain it and I know many Severn regulars cant either. I've fished a fair few rivers and never seen any go that colour, maybe there's a Guinness factory upstream :D

    I couldn't resist a last minute dash up the Severn yesterday, the flow levels looked perfect like last time but instead of going for chub and barbel it was an opportunity for big roach. I was armed...

    Re: Weighing in my landing net?

    I used a weigh sling once, couldn't believe the amount of slime it had on it after, I guess you'd have to really wet it first so find using the net is easier. I take a plastic bag for the mini...

    I see a lot of people use a plastic bag, don't they remove a lot of slime from the fish?

    Re: Weighing in my landing net?

    In the net is the best and safest way to weigh fish that aren't huge or tiny

    I always weigh the net after releasing the fish too - The weight is often slightly out depending on how wet the net is....

    Re: Prawns, cockles and mussels

    I'm still learning about prawns.

    I find Asda's ones work well and Sainsburys don't, of course the lack of confidence could be a self fulfilling prophecy when using both but it has happened so...

    Get silicon adapters for your wagglers, if you find the one you're using one too small/big then changing to another will take a few seconds.
