    Re: Fishing method you are unlikely to pursue

    I wouldn't rush to do that, either, but is it so mind-boggling? I think a lot of fishing is validated not by the size of the capture or the species, but by the satisfaction of making a challenging...

    Re: Fishing method you are unlikely to pursue

    I'm no fan of endurance fishing, but I can say I have fished Semerwater on consecutive beautiful days, caught netfull's of bream - off what , if I remember was called Low Blean side, using this...

    Re: The Boddington fish in thread...

    I'd have liked to come along and meet people, but with some of the chronic health stuff playing up and the chance of a soaking, I'll have to apologise and wish those who brave it the best of luck.

    Re: Float making.

    I've had a good look at Aknib's float collection; they're not only beautifully made - and I'm amazed how he gets such a fabulous finish while keeping each one so light - they also fish perfectly as...

    Re: What is Traditional Angling?

    I get the impression that for some anglers, "traditional" means imitating a style, in tackle and dress, that used to be used by others in the past. For me, "traditional" means I still like to fish...

    I went back to the same water at lunchtime today. I say the same, but things were a bit different; last time I was here the water was at the top of the concrete wall behind me and I was fishing from...

    Re: Chub and the future

    I love fishing for chub, and I thought I'd be catching plenty when I moved down to Nottingham. But aside from some big old chub that get caught in darkness by dedicated anglers, they're largely...

    I'd only been fishing for barbel until lately, and it didn't seem worthwhile to keep posting the same report, plus or minus a barbel or two. But just before the latest floods, I had a day with...

    Re: Prawns, cockles and mussels

    If you have any reason to think mussel will work on your water, Mike, or you just want to give it a try, get yourself a pack of fresh mussels ( about £1.30 from Morrisons), get one of those bait...

    Re: Shotting for a stick float

    And if you do, keep hold of the line; if you let go and you've overshotted the float, it will end up at the bottom. How do I know..... :omg:

    Re: First time out....

    I get that you're into lure fishing. But why not consider trying a simple rig eg a light link leger with a couple of shot just to see if you can get bites on bait? Worm or maggot will tell you if...

    Re: Shotting for a stick float

    3,4 or 5 no4 sounds big enough for what you described, Mike. River Dane, by any chance?

    Splitting the shot into smaller ones is the way to go.

    It can be a bit fiddly to put lots of small shot...

    There's a big commercial complex a few miles out of town. On my (only) visit I saw anglers lined up on the bare mud banks of a recently dug and newly stocked lake. I fished the original, mature...

    I've bought many rods and reels second-hand, mainly because the gear I tend to like went out of production long ago. If you're careful, and a bit of luck helps, you can get what you want and at a...
