    Re: Rod Material Evolution......

    I did have a pricey 14ft Bruce and Walker CTM which looking back when compared to modern rods was not very good.
    Agree with the pole comments carbon made long pole fishing so much easier.

    Re: Reels and the cost your prepared to pay.

    I have paid out a lot for Centrepins but never felt the need to pay out on FS reels. My baitcasting multipliers were also expensive.
    A good FS reel can be bought relatively cheap and will still...

    Re: All this Rain

    Too much water, all of it wasted by not storing it. When are the new reservoirs going to be built to service these millions?

    I think Dick Walker had the right idea when he caught his record he moved to an aquarium.

    Now they rarely see the light of days unless I...

    I see that the record for the Three-spined Stickleback was also broken. Can’t see them queuing up to catch that one again.

    I never got round to answering your question simply because I don't fish for carp. I have no experience in fishing the waters you fish or the methods you use.
