    It’s a shame if they are no longer available in this country as they were often good products. I only ever bought their stuff from Ted Carter which is now gone from Preston as am I.

    Re: Homemade paste baits

    Paste baits are huge in Asian countries and there is a lot we can learn from them.

    Murukyu of Japan are the big name in the industry, and many ready made powders are sold by them.

    Re: New to fishing/pole/canal

    I have never used a waggler on a whip, I’m not saying it isn’t the correct way to go... just saying that the cheap pole rigs work fine and catch me and the kids loads of fish. If the rig is too short...

    Re: New to fishing/pole/canal

    I got mine from a local shop, they go under the “Carp Match” range.

    I just ignored the Carp branding, they come with a range of line strengths and hook sizes, lines are a little heavier than I...

    Re: New to fishing/pole/canal

    Personally I would advise to go with a non-elasticsted 3 or 4 meter whip with a flick tip/ring connector. Available for well under £10, I have Daiwa and Leeda ones and they are both just as good.

    Most things big enough to strip that amount of line will make you wish you had twice or more the strength line anyway. Don’t worry about it unless you are trying to cast to the horizon in the first...

    Re: Whip Rod

    Excuse my ignorance but what is the question? If you buy it then what?

    If you buy it how do you attach line to it? Catch fish with it? Are you asking should you buy it at all?

    Sweet corn/Maize or Brandling worm for me. Though I remember a session years ago where I was getting loads of Tench on Tares.

    Browning Cenex Lines

    No such thing as nasty creatures other than Humans, they are all just trying to survive. Many birds, mammals and other fish also feed on fish... To the extent they die.

    Re: Truly compact folding chair

    I believe the anywhere chair is the lightest folding chair available.

    Though the Tresspass Perch style which is ubiquitous and available under many brands, folds pretty small and is more comfy.
