    Re: The cost of your fishing.

    I'm sure nobody thinks everyone in a region is x, y or z. And nobody thinks there aren't people in all positions, from hard-up to wealthy, in every region. What is not mythical is the general and...
  2. Re: Winter fishing - tactics and info on what the actual Fish do in the worser weathe

    Some of the best fishing can be in winter; equally, some waters can get almost impossibly hard. You may have to get up early to get a peg on some Wye stretches, the winter fishing is so good. ...

    You'd have me believe that the wealth of the south East, which affects prices and their affordability, relative to other regions, is an urban myth?It appears to be one which every analyst of regional...

    Re: Is this the L.I.F?

    Just to balance up the picture, I, for one, like Graeme Pullen's videos. Cavalier and eccentric he may be - I watched that video and wondered why he didn't bring other bait, why he's casting a stick...

    Re: How local is local

    I'm 3 minutes from a canal, but I'd only fish it under armed guard, and 5 minutes from the Trent, which has plenty of roach, dace and perch but the bigger fish only feed at night and in the right...

    Re: Ever fallen out with the hooks you use.

    I used to have a liking for blued hooks, when I only had canal fishing available. One was Drennan Carbon Caster, and the other a fine, sharp crystal bend pattern in size 22 by VMC - can't remember...

    Fair enough - perhaps some were better made than others? It was certainly robust-looking - but there was no doubting - or avoiding - the line (10lb) behind the drum issue.

    Re: Centre pin for a beginner

    Are you thinking of the Fred Crouch Truepin Trotter - the little black reel? Not found a use for it so far. It's a good bit heavier than the Bewick, so I prefer that for stillwater and light...

    I once bought a budget centrepin discounted down to £15, but it proved not worth the money. I thought the Matt Hayes Limited Edition would be ok for margin fishing, but the gap between drum and...

    I was at pains to explain why the more is not the merrier, from where I stand. Nothing disingenuous in my post - a spare tyre is a wise precaution, and distinct from a yen for another new car.
