  1. Re: Why not have lure fishing at Farmoor reservoir?

    This question is entirely down to those managing Farmoor Reservoir; the rest of us have no say in their management of their waters. If you want to fish Farmoor stick to their rules, when in Rome etc.

    Re: Clutch or backwind

    As I still use Mitchell Matches I use a mixture of the drag and backwinding. They don't spin out of control if you let go of the handle and when I'm using 1.5lb mainline I set the drag light so that...

    re: Are you still buying new tackle?

    I'm holding off the Sphere; can't justify it for one swim that might not be available in the future due to possibility of all the land being sold - doesn't mean I'm not tempted but more likely to...

    Re: Stick floats on winders

    My hemp and tare fishing is either with 2 to 3BB wagglers with just a couple of no. 10s down the line or home-made sticks that take from 3 to 5 no. 6 shot so not many shot. The days of shotting up a...

    re: Are you still buying new tackle?

    I went into my local tackle shop 10 days ago and, apart from some maggots that are now keeping a pair of robins in food, spent £30 on hooks, groundbait and olivettes as a gesture of support. I just...

    Re: Stick floats on winders

    Exactly that for me though I'm only pleasure fishing these days. I no long rig stick floats up with 20 no. 8s, only using 6 to 8 shot of whatever size does the job.

    I was glad to get out on Sunday on a comparatively busy old clay pit - nine of us fishing but plenty of room. The swim I'd fished the previous two days was in use so I trekked to the other side and...

    That last picture of Neil's shows why keepnets and roach really don't mix. I haven't used a keepnet for 7 years now and don't regret it one minute.

    If any one is still looking for a copy of the first book, Big Roach, there's currently a copy listed on ebay (I'm not the seller). Big Roach 2 is still available from the publisher.
