    Re: Self hooking rigs ?

    In practice any 4” hooklength anchored to a heavy Method feeder is a self-hooking rig. Nothing controversial about them despite some more traditional anglers pouring scorn on them.
  2. Re: Length of line between end of pole and float

    This is it Mark, around £20 but now discontinued. Nice and light and does the job a treat!
  3. Re: Length of line between end of pole and float

    Dunno Mark, I’ll have to go rummage in the garage later for a look and get back to you.
  4. Re: Length of line between end of pole and float

    I use a 5m Daiwa whip which has the top 3m telescopic and the bottom 2m are 2 section take apart. I use it for catching livebaits on a pike water that allows the practice. My rig length is around 3m,...
  5. Re: Length of line between end of pole and float

    In the summer I often go to Lingmere fishery on the Wirral for a warm evening session. This invariably involves fishing up in the water, no deeper than 9”. I was doing this one evening with around 9”...
  6. Re: Length of line between end of pole and float

    General bottom fishing at distances of 6m+ I tend to have 1ft to 15” between pole tip and float. Up in the water, frantic hard pellet fishing and slapping the rig, around 3”. Using a whip and fishing...
  7. Re: Does anyone buy fishing tackle from Ebay ?

    Case in point, selling a Daiwa SL20SH sea multiplier. Buyer with (04) feedback offers me £25, turned down, ups the offer to £27, also turned down. Doesn’t make his third and final offer but sends me...

    Re: Colors ? why not clear plastic ?

    Clear but a yellowy-green colour?
  9. Re: Does anyone buy fishing tackle from Ebay ?

    I have a distrust of sellers and buyers whose feedback is labelled “Private” What have they got to hide, it’s an auction site FFS!
  10. Re: Does anyone buy fishing tackle from Ebay ?

    Have a look at ParcelMonkey who are a facilitator and get the best quote and then you use their best price recommendation and print out your own labels. I’ve done a few with them using Parcel Force...
  11. Re: Does anyone buy fishing tackle from Ebay ?

    I buy and sell lots of tackle on eBay and as long as your cr@p radar is tuned in, there’s lots of good stuff to be had at decent prices. I bought my JW Young Purist 2 centrepin for less than half...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Greenbank Park used to be a lovely water for tench and early morning summer sessions on the pole used to produce some great nets. There was always a big carp of 20+ in there that used to wipe...

    Re: Replacing reel bands with a seat

    You can get a sliding reel seat that goes over the handle and can be positioned anywhere you like and it just clamps to the rod as you tighten the reel down. Probably better for abbreviated handles...

    Re: Why didn’t I think of this before!

    The Harrison 12ft GTi Match with the spliced tip that I acquired recently has sliding rings which are, surprisingly, plastic. I’ve just put a thin black zip tie on tightly below the bottom ring and...

    Re: Global warming? Oh no not again!!!

    When someone invents an electric car that can get me from Merseyside to Speyside (370 miles) on one charge, and costs as much as my Golf diesel, I’ll buy one. Until then I’ll carry on being a...

    Re: New Club extra costs

    I wouldn’t join any club that allows the use of bait boats or fish any waters where spodding is commonplace.

    Mersey Winter Cod Boat Trip Jan 2020

    Tried out a new charter boat yesterday, recommended by two friends of mine. Mersey Lass sails from Priory Wharf, Birkenhead and the main attraction is that he only fishes the ebb tide (when most cod...

    Re: Global warming? Oh no not again!!!

    Jesus, some long replies on this thread. Life is too short (and getting shorter due to Global Warming and CO2 emissions). I’m firmly with “the propagandists” (isn’t labelling them propagandists just...

    Apart from jacksharps (sticklebacks) mine was a lovely golden rudd of around 6oz caught on a rod made from a sapling branch, some gut, a plain white quill float, a 14 hook to nylon and bread for...

    If it wasn’t for “the big orange thing in the sky” greenhouse gases wouldn’t be an issue. I’m in the global warming camp and think that the “big orange thing in the sky” is only half of the problem...
