    Re: Help me out.....

    Looks a lovely spot, I used to fish the wreake with my brother about 35 year ago. Have you tried crust on the top ? We used to pick no end of chub up that way freelining it down stream.

    Re: Weighing in my landing net?

    That’s the way I do it. I suppose if I thought I had a record I’d be more careful.
    Just remember to take the weight of the landing net off afterwards [emoji6]

    Why would you post a video to a forum of anglers who main sport revolves around catch and release ? It’s slightly bafflingly say the least or possibly just dam right disrespectful.

    Re: New or second hand

    Certainly people do, I’ve also noticed a lot more of 2nd hand tackle dealers on eBay, who know nothing of the tackles history. Especially when it comes to rods I’d stay well clear of.

    Sad you felt like that, but sometimes we get a feeling things aren’t quite right. So your probably quite right not to go back.

    Best bait and set up for float fishing

    Try 3” over the depth of the water. Small shot 3” from your hook. Works well for me. Maggots are good, keep feeding a few 5-10 every minute or so. Sweetcorn for a change tinned is better than frozen...

    so what has everyone caught besides a fish

    Myself frequently, trees lots of trees. But my latest catch is Lymes disease! Wife insists it’s from fishing. I think it’s from the local woods which are full of deer.
