    Re: Starting back up again

    Hi Jon. I returned to fishing after a long break and was surprised at some of the developments in tackle.
    Many years ago I fished with a 13 foot Shakespeare match rod, a 9 foot Shakespeare leger rod...

    Re: Float making.

    That's a bargain and I would love one. Unfortunately, once I've factored in the expense of the divorce after I unveiled it, it's not really worth it.

    I'm on another float making mission, all very rough and ready, but I enjoy it.
    Have been using reed from a broken garden screen as waggler bodies and inserts from scewers. I also found a sealed...

    I don't do a lot of river fishing unfortunately, but I would have no concerns about taking my TF Gear Compact All Rounder rod.

    Re: If you target a certain species of fish.....

    My favourite fish is still the perch, it was the first fish I remember catching and I still think they are the most striking looking fish we have.

    Re: Crexit?

    I'm sure it's not just a Liverpool thing, but a lot of the carp population is quite transient. I've been told of carp caught from one park lake being transported to another water. That's how some of...

    Re: Crexit?

    That's the issue that bugs me the most. I fish a fairly small pond regularly, it reminds me of the places I grew up learning to fish on. I still enjoy chucking a float out but it is impossible to be...

    Re: For all the blurb and modern advances…

    Personally I choose to fish in a very simple manner. I have to be honest and say that I get a real kick out of catching a couple of decent fish on a homemade float or a simple sliding drilled bullet...

    Re: How did you get on?

    It was my last day off work and I was determined to get some fishing in. Following two blanks, one of which using the dreaded drop shot rod, I really wanted some fish bending the rod.
    It was a case...

    In my experience its waggling a rubber fish on a hook that is ignored completely by real fish.

    I've never fished Greenbank before, heard there's been some nice sized perch come out.

    Yes, but it's changed since I fished it as a kid. Now full of chubby carp, the lads lining the banks in their bivvies know their names.

    I thought it looked like a chub but I'm fairly certain nobody would have transferred chub to our little pond.

    I think it is a grass carp? I'm no carp expert and was wondering what any of you more knowledgeable guys think. Cheers.

    My first fish was a perch caught on a big hook tied to black cotton, a big old worm as bait and a matchstick float. It was 1976 in the summer holidays with my uncle and cousin at The Seven Sisters in...

    It's not just the blanks, I've had plenty of them with bait! I just don't find it an enjoyable form of fishing. I like the roving with minimal tackle approach, but can do that with a tub of worms or...
