    Re: Graham - what a great shot

    The shot wasn't Photoshopped but it was set up. A mate was pulling the line to make the bobbin rise while I took the shot.

    Which is why the line is going down at an angle from the butt ring.

    Re: A new Wye venue

    PS: And another reason why a through-action rod, one that will bend from tip to butt, is better for playing fish than a rod with most of its action in the tip.

    Rod design is always a compromise;...

    Re: A new Wye venue

    All rods get stronger as they curve 'into the butt', but more often than not 'getting stronger' means the rod has 'locked up', ie, the tube has reached its full curve and collapsed as far as it can...

    Re: Preston 'C' Series Rods

    I've had the 10' Carbonactive Mini Carp rod for a few years and wouldn't swap it for anything for fishing the tip up to about 35yds.

    Re: the ethics of commercials!

    The balanced view is that there are good commercials and bad commercials, good non-commercials and bad non-commercials.

    Jimmy is spot on, if a fishery owner is only interested in the profit he...

    Re: Compact Cameras

    It's a shame the screen on the P7100 doesn't swivel, but the zoom end of the lens has a longer reach than the G12, 200mm as against 140mm (35mm equiv). And I already have a wireless remote that will...

    Re: BIG ROACH a book by Mark Wintle

    I'm surprised that some anglers seem surprised that fish recognise elderberries as food considering there may not be any elderberry bushes in the vicinity.

    And yet those same anglers accept that...

  10. Re: Angling Times - is there too much news in it?

    More interesting is to ask what changes should be made, or do we need to admit that most of us find all we want from fishing reading and buying on the internet?

    Most of what we could suggest has...

  12. Re: Angling Times - is there too much news in it?

    I never was any good at maths! But I knew 302,000 a week was way, way over the actual figure of around 50,000.
  13. Re: Angling Times - is there too much news in it?

    I think it means the average weekly sales of AT are 302,000 divided by 52, which equals about 58,000 copies per week, which sounds about right.

    I think the most they ever sold in a week was around...
  14. Re: DNA ...a new era for records or the start of a big mess ...

    It's about the question of whether the captor can or cannot withdraw a ratified record from the BRFC list. I think we have established without a shadow of a doubt (with the exception of maybe one...
  15. Re: DNA ...a new era for records or the start of a big mess ...

    Exactly Ron.
  16. Re: DNA ...a new era for records or the start of a big mess ...

    What matters is what the BRFC say, not what we think. They say the captor holds the record.

    The fish is the record, the captor holds it, and history owns it.
  17. Re: DNA ...a new era for records or the start of a big mess ...

    According to the BRFC (and they run the show) the captor holds the record but it doesn't belong to him.

    As with the other analogy I used, the 'four minute mile' didn't hold the record, Bannister...

    Furthermore, I won't be exchanging any personal insults or red herrings with you as I believe my argument regarding withdrawing record fish is strong enough to not need the support of personal...

    Re: Trotting-- sitting or standing.

    Almost always standing, but introducing loose feed downstream of me so that the fish are accepting it further down than where I'm stood.

    Sorry to bring this one up again after it had appeared to have faded into the background but I've been waiting for a reply off a BRFC Committee member so as to once and for all clarify the position...

    Re: Dotted down, rubbish?

    There is a very simple way to tell how much resistance a float is offering to a fish.

    It's how much weight is needed to sink it from whatever position it currently holds.

    For instance, if a...
