    Re: How did you get on?

    It feels like months since I got out fishing, but I finally managed it today. All in all, it was a bit of a struggle. The venue concerned has been poor for me this winter compared to previous ones. I...

    Re: Just wondered ?

    Much is going to depend on your interpretation of what exactly a "lightning fast action" is. I have the 11' Acolyte Ultra (and several other Acolyte float rods). I feel that the actions are very...

    Re: Still water fish movement.

    Rayner,
    you have interpreted my words as some kind of denigration. All I've said is that there can be a grain of truth in some of those extreme views that some folks have. I don't have...

    Re: Bruce & Walker Hexagraph

    Like you, I don't really know, but I have my suspicions. However, much like the Daiwa Haxagon Whisker (fly) rods, I'm fascinated by them. I've barely seen any in the flesh, let alone used one. If it...

    Re: Does flooding change rivers?

    I'd suggest that there's a perception that the floods are more frequent and a bit higher on average. However, I'm not entirely convinced about either being entirely true. One thing that does seem far...

    Re: Deep water tench

    I fish a gravel pit where the shallowest water (other than a few margin areas) is about 12'. The deepest spot is 32' and the average is around 18'. I'd suggest that you seek out whatever marginal...

    Re: Still water fish movement.

    Whilst that's true to an extent, it's also true that the greater the stocking density, or the lower the natural food levels, the less picky the resident fish can afford to be. It's this lack of...
  8. Re: Darent Valley Specialist landing net handle. 1.6 to 3metres.

    DV = 14oz (397g)

    Drennan Super Specialist (Twistlock) = 13oz (362g)

    That makes the Conoflex sound like the Lone Angler...

    Re: Does flooding change rivers?

    I think at least part of the problem is the general idea that flooding has never been so bad. This is largely reinforced by the EA river level "records". I appreciate that they had to start...

    Re: Still water fish movement.

    Fish are fish. They simply adjust to their environment as necessary. The behaviour of fish in a full on match type commie can be drastically different to those in a more natural environment. However,...

    Re: Still water fish movement.

    Yes, you can spot an unusual and non-native fish in your local river. However, if fish grow legs and walk between stillwaters it can be similar, though being certain about the source isn't really...

    Re: Does flooding change rivers?

    My local can, and usually does, change with almost every flood. Usually, the more significant the flood, the more obvious the changes. The very minimum I expect to see is shifted gravel/cobbles. The...

    Re: Anyone fishing?

    Self employed in a pretty seasonal business. I don't actively chase work. On average, I work hard for about three months of the year. The hope is that once I hit 55, I'll not even have to pretend any...

    Alan, if you can't see the hypocrisy in your own post, then it's perhaps not worth the time in explaining it. Needless to say, your initial post comes across a bit like a teenager demanding "respec"...

    You can dislike doing something without effectively denouncing the practice, which is exactly what you've just done. I do very little but floatfish. I don't particularly like legering. The difference...
