    Re: The river that’s a legal person

    Which was my point entirely inasmuch as the government have very different aims and objectives from leaving the EU.

    Re: The river that’s a legal person

    Re: Guru rig case

    For pole rig hook lengths I use the small Preston box and the larger one for hook lengths up to about 10 inches lng.

    Re: Hook length weaker than main line?

    1. Better bait presentation

    2. Safer in a breakage

    3. Better to use when in snaggy swims

    4. Ensures that a fish cannot become...

    Re: optimum hook size for a canal ?

    I doubt that there is such a thing as an "optimum" hook size as on any given day or condition it will be very different.

    Personally, I'd start off on an 18's or 20s and if the bites keep coming...

    Re: New Club extra costs

    The only "rule" there that makes sense (to me) is the one regarding colour of brolly/bivvy as a lot of clubs can suffer from problems with "tents" as local councils seem to have some strange rules...

    Mine was a small roach from the local common pond and while I dabbled with all species, as well as match fishing, the roach remains my favourite fish.
