    Re: Is this the L.I.F?

    I must have missed something. I was under the impression he was just another bluffer that had jumped on the Youtube angling bandwagon. I had no idea that he had any kind of previous.

    Re: How did you get on?

    The weather was right, the river wasn't. It was as good as it has been in a while though, and beggars can't be choosers.


    I only had a couple of hours at it for two grayling and two trout. It...

    Re: The cost of your fishing.

    It's not quite as simple as North V South. Fishing costs, particularly tickets and bait, vary from region to region. There's no club I know of local to me with a yearly ticket in the region of the...

    Not just me then!



    I can't imagine going to a new venue, paying that much, but only having bread and corn with me.

    I've taken advantage of that before. It got to the extent that I'd always check ebay before checking the price on the full website, and vice versa. However, in the last year or so, there has very...

    Re: Snugpack Sj9 jacket

    Just dug up a three year old video of an Sj9 jacket with no (current model) V lines across the front or thumb loops on the sleeve. It's distinctly possible that you've got an Sj9, just the old model....

    Re: Snugpack Sj9 jacket

    In my experience, quite a lot of retailers use the wrong descriptions, names, or photos for Snugpak products. Snugpak also have a propensity to reuse names on different products, or use ever so...

    Is that an admission that you were wrong to hint that AD were doing something a bit more fishy than simply selling fishing gear? ;)

    Re: Centre pin line release

    That may be so, but, as I also suggested earlier in the thread, if retrieving backwards is an insurmountable problem for you, it's irrelevant.

    A few years back, I came to the realisation that my wanderlust had been well and truly sated. I had little appetite for travel (commuting, holidaying, or for fishing) and no desire whatsoever to...

    Re: Ever fallen out with the hooks you use.

    There has undoubtedly been a bit of size creep over the years. There is also an awful lot of inconsistency. However, no one hook size scale has ever been universally accepted, so it's almost...

    Re: Ever fallen out with the hooks you use.

    Try the Wide Gape Match. They've become my go to all round float fishing hook. If they did them in bigger sizes, I'd probably use even more.



    The Wide Gape Match is anything but lightweight....

    Re: How did you get on?

    Be wary if you can't replace them. Handles can undoubtedly be a pain sometimes. However, you might find bigger fish a bit of a struggle without them, especially on a reel that you can't go "finger...

    Re: Ever fallen out with the hooks you use.

    That explains my lack of recollection. I was fishing, but I was still young enough to have to be grateful for whatever I could get. Getting picky didn't really happen until the late eighties.

    Plenty of crystal bends in that little lot. It might go some way to explaining why I still prefer crystal bend hooks for an awful lot of my fishing. However, there are quite a few models that I have...

    Based on my own experiences, which included an abortive first try that almost put me off completely, I'd recommend starting with something south of £100. If that means second hand, so be it, but be...

    Often the way with centrepins. A fine excuse to have as many different designs as possible.



    Because I find retrieving really slowly from a long trot is a painful experience. It's no fun when...

    Re: Centre pin line release

    I've found that reels with deeper arbours need a line guard less than those with shallower arbours. The downside is that the deeper arboured reels can be a bit slow on the retrieve. The Okumas fall...

    Re: Centre pin line release

    Look at my pic and see where the line comes off the reel. I'd imagine a guard fitted from 3 to 6 might do a job, but it's likely to foul the line too. Depending on the depth of the reel's arbour and...
