    To pole or not to pole

    That is the question!
    There has been a little bit of friendly banter on here about using/not using a pole.

    I don't use one very often but have recently re elasticated my old pole of about 30...

    Re: Are you tempted I was.

    Because money has been tight in the past for me I still find the padlock on my wallet difficult to unlock.
    I do buy tackle nowadays but only to replace stuff that is getting worn out or broken.

    Re: My Carp lake

    Good luck. Having a place mostly to oneself is great. Why not try one rod on a boilie method and another in a different direction on an alternative to see what up?

    Re: Carp Fishing as Beginner

    Did anyone mention posting on HDYGO NEXT week? You say you havn't used a rod and reel. You wanted advice. You are obviously inexperienced but know a lot. Good luck, over and out.

    Re: My Carp lake

    Is it a big lake or something more modest. Has it got a good head of carp. They do tend to bunch up when it gets really cold.
    If its quite small and you can find where they patrol or shoal up there...

    I have been thinking about this thread today. Without being patronising, how experienced are you? To go from only ever having used a pole to big carp is a mighty leap. Makins to Abbey Lakes a similar...

    Re: Carp Fishing as Beginner

    Is this a commercial with lots of carp? Is it relatively snag free. If so and presumably you are hooking bigger carp at pole distance I doubt you will need a 2.75 TC rod and 10000 size reel. You wont...
