  1. Re: Reels and the cost your prepared to pay.

    When it comes to reels the old adage of you get what you pay for has never been more true.

    A case of 'horses for courses' really; a shelter is perfectly good and comfortable for a session where you intend to stay in the one swim whereas a brolly is far better suited to a roaming style of...

    The Romsey Fair is well worth a visit and I have been many times.

    Re: Favourite winter perch method

    Being a bit of an old traditionalist I prefer to fish a lobworm under a nice old perch bobber float.

    Re: Tackle made in the UK

    I think that there are very few rods in particular that are 100% made in the UK . . . . typically some rods are "finished" here but only on imported blanks.

    Re: What’s your views on Bolo rods

    Having used both a 6m and 7m Bolo' rod I eventually opted for a "conventional" 20' 4 piece rod that I think is far better suited to deep water fishing.

    The lack of interspaced rings on a bolo' rod...
