    Re: Self hooking rigs ?

    Just a thought........I wonder sometimes what is really meant by a self hooking rig. A free running method feeder for example, is that a self hooking rig or an anti eject rig, or both ? Barbel have a...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Off to the club lake today for another go at the elusive big roach.

    I knew it was going to be hard with the barometer well into the 1030's and no wind to speak off. Even worse I had 4 bloody...

    Re: Bog ordinary rear rod rest head

    Hmmm.....I’d need to see one in the flesh but I’m liking the shape. I too couldn’t really get on with either the Gardner or Korum Y rests. I’m currently using a Preston “Dutch” feeder rest on a mini...

    Re: How did you get on?

    29 roach with 5 around the pound is not such a bad day.....I'd be more than happy with that.

    First fish....a 10oz skimmer on bread from Little Britain Lake in Cowley (Middx) in about 1967. I've no doubt Simon and Jerry will know the place. It was some time before I caught another one, thank...

    Re: Reels and the cost your prepared to pay.
