    Re: Rod tip breakage

    A six-inch splice is pretty unusual to say the least, and I'd guess it produces an odd "step" in the tip. I wonder if you might have got a better repair by bravely cutting off another foot and...

    Scissors paper rock...... same old points exchanged. We can leave the EU, enable Sunday trading, de-regulate vast swathes of the economy....... but the close season is writ in stone, the fixed...

    I believe a "consultation" on road safety is set to impose a 30mph limit everywhere - on the basis that it's needed in some places and the alternatives are too complicated to administer. :)

    Re: Coarse closed season to remain

    Recognising the differences between places is exactly why my post mentioned "local discretion". Looking at the whole picture need not lead to a one-size-fits-all policy.

    Re: Coarse closed season to remain

    Exactly. Two months and more into the season and the majority of swims on rivers I fish are so overgrown as to be inaccessible. Indeed, many former swims are lost through lack of people making space...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Back on the river this afternoon. I took a friend along. We'd had innumerable evenings in the pub over the last 15 years, but he'd never sampled this fishing business, so I thought a trip was...

    Re: Coarse closed season to remain

    Most of the river stretches I fish are barely fished in summer, unfished through the winter and unfishable through the spring. I think fish in rivers need protection from a lot of things, as do...

    Re: Shorter rod thoughts.

    I fish a few little brooks and streams, especially in winter, and short rods match this type of terrain. Looking for something 8' or 9' puts you below the typical commercial-length rods, like pellet...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Back to the river for a couple of hours this evening. It had dropped down 2' since Sunday, and I didn't like the look of it - it looked neither one thing nor the other, if that makes sense.
    I found...

    Re: Length under split shot (river trout)

    Legering - it's when you don't have a float, you just have a weight of some kind that lets you cast out, takes your bait to the bottom and keeps it where you want it in the river or lake or whatever.

    Re: Length under split shot (river trout)

    Trout are something I only see if I catch them accidentally on the Derwent, so I don't know the answer. You're wondering how far from the hook to put shot when floatfishing? Or are you legering? ...

    Do as you think fit, Mike.... it's only forum talk, and I was just a bit curious as to what you were doing. Your HDYGO post gave me the idea the carp were having it - was it a dozen you got in quick...

    Reel in for a min? Sorry, but I don't see the role for gripping rod rests and baitrunners for what's akin to floatfishing. You're watching your bait or controller, watching them take freebies,...

    Locking butt rests? What on earth? Hold it, poised like a heron. You've got a fab collection of rods designed to feel good in the hand, and you weren't waiting long for bites, from your "floater"...

    Re: How did you get on?

    With a couple of feet of water on and the river racing through and a soupy colour, there's only one species to fish for. And it's not bream. Which suited me fine as I continue to leave the pole, the...

    Mike, I think your Hardy's, Shimano Antares and Normark have down-locking seats. Your Daiwa Amorphous Whisker has sliding rings. I salute your liberal attitude.

    I've got a couple of Harrison barbel rods with down-locking seats. And it's true they are not 100% secure. Every now and then, and I do mean occasionally, I'll become aware that the foregrip has...

    I wouldn't buy a rod with that reel seat. Mind you, I've gone so far, when I like the rod but not the reel seat, to replace it with sliding bands on cork. I don't know a handle material that looks...
