    Re: The New Fox Easy Brolly

    I had a Fox Warrior 11’ Twin Tip Barbel rod that was great and their little meat stops for hair rigging are also very good.

    Plus, Fox Micron Bite Alarms are pretty much an evergreen standard for...

    Re: Daren't valley 0.75lb by The Tackle Box.

    I use the Drennan Rod Sleeves to carry made up rods. If I’m only taking one, it has a carrying handle. If I’m taking two I have cobbled up a carrying sling from a webbing strap and 2 Velcro rod...

    Can’t see what all the angst is about, it’s a reel seat FFS, there’s a difference of an an inch either way on a long handle and it can’t hurt anyone’s delicate mitts, (but apparently hurts their...

    Definitely the cheapo option and a crossover with fly rods where downlocking reel seats are a big no-no!

    Now come on Skip, you used to hate double handles on reels “with a passion” and now you tolerate some of them. You’re on the slippery slope of acceptance. What’s not to like about carrying a made up...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Went for an evening session at the lake, for a change, set up on a shady bank with the sun on the water and did a few casts to the island (40yds) to get clipped up. Fished a single rod on an alarm...
  11. Re: so guys and girls whats your best find why fishing or going fishing

    A bank stick or disgorger is a totally different thing to finding a wage packet which may have had a name and National Insurance number on it. Finding a bit of tackle is lucky, finding an...

    If it was a wage packet wouldn’t it have had a name on it? Your easy gain was a big loss for a possible fellow angler.

    Re: Help required fishing a specimen lake

    Cut prawn in two (or use 2 small ones) and use a hair rig with one of those Quikstops/Pushstops/Rapidstops on and just push through. I’ve used prawns like that recently.

    In normal flows of water trout have “lies”, places they have chosen to keep station in the flow and wait for the current to bring them food. The bigger trout get the better lies, like in front of a...

    Re: What is Traditional Angling?

    When sedentary fishing I take two hats, a cap and a broad-brim. Always start off with a Daiwa cap but when (if) the sun gets high, out comes the Tilley. No sense in getting a burnt neck and ears just...

    Daiwa do (or did) a 10 or 11ft carp feeder rod for around the £50 mark. I had the 10ft Pellet Waggler in the same range. I think this range has been superseded by the D Carp range which are cheaper...
