    The good ol' days of fishing

    It seems it's almost taboo nowadays to say such a thing after all it's still pretty darn good but do you ever get together with old friends and reminisce big time? Will you reminisce about another...

    Re: Very big float!

    Auction houses and antique shops get lots of these types of books come in, they get bought by traders who cut out the plates and sell them individually for profit.

    It's a print guys, but it is a limited edition. The larger number is the total number of copies the print is limited to the small number is which one this is, so there's only 333 of these in...
  4. Re: What GB fish specie wise up the quickest--

    Yeah I think it's all about those upper layer specialists regarding eyesight, when you think dace, roach, chub etc have to get in there early and intercept to grow big, I would expect rudd to be up...
  5. Re: What GB fish specie wise up the quickest--

    I was about to concur, most of the free waters I fish are now devoid of chub save for lone fish in really overgrown areas, having worked with many a person from a foreign shore I can vouch first hand...

    Re: Vegan Hunter alert.

    I hate the way some people pose their catch like this, it takes ages to get them nice and neat when they are trying to roll about, they have been out of the veg patch long enough.

    To have loved and lost

    Do you look back on once prolific waters with a sense of regret and sadness at how they are now?

    Or do you look back fondly and think those were the days, what wonderful times we had there?

    Big roach will always be an enigma, I think they are more common than people think after all you can get them everywhere from tiny brooks to canals, tidal rivers, small ponds, large reservoirs etc...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Yeah that sounds awful when said like that, sorry :D I'm just concerned what is a good mixed fishery is starting to become dominated by one species, hopefully it's cyclical

    Re: How did you get on?

    Oh to get some roach and dace, I've been trying for them on a river that used to produce but this winter it seems to be either barbel or chub each time, there are cormorants overwintering and the...
  12. What type of fishing are you really bad at?

    Be honest, what have you tried that you really haven't got yet, or are trying to learn, or feel that you will never have....and why?

    Re: Cinnamon

    It probably doesn't but as you say it does degrease them, plus it takes away the smell of amonia. I get covered in orange dust sometimes, one time I had a big orange mark on the bridge of my nose...
  15. Re: Is a lead weight ban on the horizon? Angling Times February 25th

    Wow Mark, I see where you're going with this but isn't angling low down on the list of polluters of our rivers and seas? Where would our lead contribution be in a list of dangerous subsances found in...

    Yesterday I fished a couple of hours either side of lunch on what was a very swollen river which was over the all the places I used to sit. Two hours without a bite in various swims left me trying...

    Re: Cinnamon

    Never used cinnamon but have a spice/herb mix that I vary for the species, this is just dusted on the maggots rather than any groundbait, I've found that adjusting various quantities of each flavour...
  19. Re: Is a lead weight ban on the horizon? Angling Times February 25th

    Lead content in the water would surely be insignificant if measured in our rivers or sea, it's also naturally occurring as are many other metals. There's crustaceans that have copper naturally in...

    Re: Your views on barbless or barbed hooks?

    I think there's enough evidence that backs you up to more than suggest Barbel mouths are a lot tougher than carp, we've all seen the difference, sometimes you go on a pond and it's a bit shocking to...
  21. Re: Is a lead weight ban on the horizon? Angling Times February 25th

    Some sea anglers in snaggy areas use cheaper alternatives than lead that's for sure. Surely lead is less harmful than spark plugs?
  22. Re: Is a lead weight ban on the horizon? Angling Times February 25th

    There's a guy on the Severn who uses a metal detector to collect lost weights from the beachy areas in summer, I think the misconception that the bottom of the river is full of lead is so wrong as it...

    We've all had hooks get blunt, just takes one snag, if you're fishing somewhere snaggy you'll get through ten a day if you changed everytime, I'm way to tight for that :D

    Re: Your views on barbless or barbed hooks?

    As you know Alan I've fished that stretch for a good 20 years now and the rules there (which are admittedly many) have safeguarded the stocks of what has to be the most prolific small river in the...
