    Gulls are the ultimate adaptable omnivore and have always frequented seaside resorts. They are birds of the coastal environment and not birds of the open sea as they can’t dive for food. For decades...

    “Terrorist creatures” :omg: they’re only doing what nature designed them to do, the fact that we don’t like it and it’s getting out of hand doesn’t make them card-carrying members of Al Quaeda!

    Re: River feeder rod

    Bite detection “on commies” consists of a forward lunge as your rod flies out of the rest! Baitrunners are a bit of a must.

    Re: Self hooking rigs ?

    In practice any 4” hooklength anchored to a heavy Method feeder is a self-hooking rig. Nothing controversial about them despite some more traditional anglers pouring scorn on them.
