    Re: Using tackle how you like.

    I quite like using unconventional tackle/methods, or standard tackle/methods unconventionally. Being told that I shouldn't do something is a red rag to a bull. Being told that something doesn't, or...

  3. Re: Oy-vey! From Tackle & Guns Magazine- re: Angling Direct

    I don't suppose that their store acquisitions and expansions do a great deal to help their balance sheet, at least in the short term. I was a little surprised that they kept up such expansion into...

    Re: The lack of good fishing articles.

    Once I came to terms with that I was far happier watching it. Whilst I don't sit there gritting my teeth, I still struggle a little with Bob's seeming inability to even slightly improve his angling...

    Re: The lack of good fishing articles.

    Whether we like it or not, angling is an ageing demographic which this forum highlights in spades. Most of us don't really want what's on offer for free, or at little cost. The truth is that our...

    Re: Too much bait?

    I've long believed that lots of anglers use far too much feed, especially on more natural, or lightly stocked venues. You can also add waters with high levels of natural food. Even if the fish aren't...

    Re: John Wilson rod identification

    It's the latter that I was getting at, not that it was a Masterline/Wilson rod. I seem to remember reading (it might have been his autobiography) that the very earliest versions of the Wilson Avon...

    Re: John Wilson rod identification

    I suspect that the black ring in the cork handle might be helpful. I know Shimano were fond of this feature back in the day. However, having found (original) Diaflash and Powerloop models with it,...

    Re: Most chersihed rig bit...

    I've had some for several years now. They're pretty damned good. I find that they replicate the sensitivity of a much finer tipped float whilst being far easier to see at distance. The only slight...

    Re: Accessory chair.

    I have had three different Korum chairs over the years. As far as I was concerned, quality was reducing over time and weight was increasing. In many respects, I like a seatbox. However, I don't like...

    Re: Most chersihed rig bit...

    I can't get excited for any particular type of float. Naturally, I have my favourites, but they are of multiple types for different purposes. The items I tend to use almost every time out are quick...

    Re: Ribble rising fast

    Nothing particularly exceptional on the Swale. No one in this part of the valley has been daft enough to build really close to it anyway.

  13. Re: Recommendations for a 13ft stick float rod for roach fishing.

    Under load, quite similar. With little load (casting and the initial part of a strike), more through. Pretty much as I'd expect as a difference between a waggler rod and a trotting rod. As ever, if...
  14. Re: Recommendations for a 13ft stick float rod for roach fishing.

    I've not done anything with one to be able to make that call. However, with only a brief waggle to go on, and knowing that it was bought for £50, I was reasonably impressed. Not my idea of a trotting...
  15. Re: Recommendations for a 13ft stick float rod for roach fishing.

    I've got something that needs doing, that I really don't want to do, so what better way to prevaricate than to get the scales out instead.;)

    Here's a few comparisons between matching rods.

  16. Re: Recommendations for a 13ft stick float rod for roach fishing.

    The weights given may be a little out due to product variance. I'll also not claim that my scales are calibrated and perfect. However, they are adequate for a fair comparison. In the event of the...

    Re: Ribble rising fast

    The Tyne, Wear, Tees, Swale, Ure, Nidd, Wharfe, and Eden have all shot up in a similar manner. I don't think the rain was anything like as localised as you might think.

    Re: Fish finder RC boats

    It varies depending on the exact model. I've yet to see one with offshore lifeboat levels of buoyancy. They are far from unsinkable. A combination of wind and wave on a big water can see some types...

    Semerwater on a decent summer day. It's not remotely unusual for the weather to turn up there, just as it did on the day in question. It started out nice but the afternoon was spent watching the rain...

    Re: Old tip for retrieving hook from trees.

    How about the mainline getting cut on the sharp edge of the cigar tube leaving you with an entire rig up a tree and a broken rod tip?

    Re: Old tip for retrieving hook from trees.

    Hmmmm, OK. In the mean time, you've also just wrapped your float/feeder/lead/shot, that are hanging between rod tip and hook, around every twig, branch and leaf in the vicinity. You've still got a...

    My thought is how you plan on getting the cigar tube over a float, lead, feeder or shot.
