    Re: Bargains. Let us know.

    I'd already had an email telling me it had shipped before I saw the price had gone down - and I was just thinking how super-efficient they'd been!

    Re: Bargains. Let us know.

    I had an email from Angling Direct this morning, offering a re-chargeable Chub head torch for £30, reduced from £55.99. My old Energiser has seen better days, so after a quick check to establish that...

    Re: Dettol used as a paint stripper

    At least a week, from memory. As mentioned above, it seems to work for Speedias (if you can stand the smell).

    Re: Tackle made in the UK

    The Harrisons website states: "When you buy a Harrison rod you are getting a blank that is hand rolled here in Liverpool". That sounds good enough for me, even though I only have one of their rods -...

    In the late '60s/early '70s, Shakespeare marketed a product called Easiworm, which was essentially a sachet of "shampoo" for mixing with water and designed to have the same irritant effect (not at...

    Re: Shorter rod thoughts.

    I use a vintage (1970s) hollow glass Hardy Swingtip rod for these situations and find it ideal. It has a threaded tip ring for screw-in quiver or swingtip, but I usually use it without either. I have...

    Re: What is Traditional Angling?

    I could never see what the problem was, as I thought all reels were like that. It was only quite recently I realised that was because, being left-handed, I'd only ever used a 301!

    Re: Assembling a larger net - how?

    I find it easiest to rest the front of the net on the ground and flex it that way, rather than trying to grapple with it off the ground. I do the same to disassemble the net, as my forearms appear to...

    Re: Rod vertical or horizontal

    The advice in old angling books was always to "give it the butt", i.e. to keep the rod vertical. Why they said this I've no idea, as it puts far too much strain on the tip and doesn't bring the whole...
