    Re: How did you get on?

    I took the dog out for an early morning walk down by the river and to my surprise he managed to spook a group of carp out of an incredibly shallow section of river when he went for a drink. After...

    Re: Coarse fishing in Brittany

    I've fished Cat 1 waters in Normandy where everything but fly fishing is banned, I've fished Cat 1 waters where anything goes but bait. TBH it's a bit of a minefield and worth checking the rules of...
  3. Re: Video pike taking topwater duo shinmushi lure

    I knot it but then I don't use anything heavier than 55lb, if I was I'd probably crimp it.

    Home Essential the same as K2K but cheaper.
  4. Re: Can you help me choose the right hook bait (feeder fishing)?

    Where are you fishing?

    I fish a couple of sections of river that see almost no angling pressure, pellets and boilies are massively outfished by more natural baits like maggots, hemp, corn, caster,...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Black bass are large mouth bass. Large mouth are divided into two sub-strains Northern and Florida strain, I think in Europe we have the Northern strain.
  7. Re: Small crimps & Tool for a fine wire trace

    I tend to knot Ti wire, I use a three turn half blood knot or a perfection loop with a bit of shrink tube over the top. It's a bit worrying at first as the knots don't close up as they do with mono...

    Re: Fishing opposite someone

    A for sure, I don't like busy venues. TBH unless I was having a session of a lifetime I would most probably move myself if someone set up on the opposite bank.

    Re: method feeders

    Try a drier groundbait mix before spending money on a new mould, groundbait that's too damp will stick like glue to anything.

    Re: John Wilson Barbel Quiver Rod

    The reel will be fine.

    Use a lead that easily allows you to cast the distance you need/want to cast. As a rule of thumb for every LB of test curve you can cast an ounce of weight.

    Re: Landing net head shapes

    I much prefer a spoon shape over triangular, the triangular nets taper it too steep so narrows too quickly. I use one net for 90% of my fishing and it's 24" latex net. I prefer latex as hooks and...

    Re: Starting fly fishing help please

    A six weight is well suited to stillwaters and fishing streamers, if allowed, in rivers. It'll be a hint heavy for dry fly work and nymphing on rivers. Can't say I know the rod but orvis generally...

    Re: Starting fly fishing help please

    I would certainly agree on the casting lessons, look for a GAIA or AAPGAI fly casting instructor local to yourself. Casting lessons aren't particularly expensive and are the best investment you can...

    I'll guess at ...

    Martin Clarke. He invented the blow back rig tied with a little ring rather than tubing, most probably a catchier name too.

    Re: Ninja doubts

    It's due to the, mainly American, lure fishing market and fact they don't want a spare spool. Incredibly frustrating if you happen to be a coarse angler outside of America though.

    Re: Carp Pollution

    Because it what most anglers want most of the time so it's the most successful business model. It's really as simple as that.

    Well blow me down, all these years I thought I've been using the albright knot when I join fluoro to braid on combi links and lure traces and it turns out I've been using the alberto knot. :redface:

    Re: Fake maggot question?

    You can buy sinking fake baits.

    However if you use a large enough hook the buoyant fake baits will pop up the length of the hair. If I remember correctly a n°1 shot pinched on the hair was...

    Re: The centrepin reel thread......

    A larger reel just offers a high line retrieval speed, which IMO is more important in long trotting than ledgering for barbel.

    My reel of choice for ledgering for barbel is a Speedia de-luxe...
