  1. Re: Trotting on the Severn. Advice on tatics and equipment.

    Lmao. Someone got out the wrong side of bed!
    In my opinion 5lb is still a little heavy for any type of General river float fishing. If the op is specifically targeting barbel then maybe 5lb or...
  2. Re: Darent Valley specialist or matchpro ultralight

    Like Peter I have a collection of ultralights and they are simply beautiful rods. For roach and chub they're sublime! I've even had barbel on my 13ft one.
  3. Re: Trotting on the Severn. Advice on tatics and equipment.

    5lb is still very heavy for general stick float fishing. Use as light a line as you can as it will make casting easier.
    As for reels, the ninja is ok but the legalis is about 55 quid and in my...

    To be honest mike I wouldn't have a clue.... I've never actually knowingly used the clutches on them. I had old daiwas before that never had clutches so I just automatically use the backwind. It does...

    Re: Faps Hexa 14.5m

    As much as I hate to admit it, its probably not worth a great deal unless you can find someone with an emotional wish for one.

    Re: Low water levels

    The stretch of mid/upper Thames we fish is just getting lower and lower. My local canalised river is gin clear and barely moving and the back streams are empty. It seems our country is using way more...

  12. Re: It’s that time of year to book next year’s fishing holiday

    Big carp fishing is quite popular in Germany and the Germans fish the world's and European championships so there must be some catch and release fishing surely?

    I rarely mix up full bags but quite often use 2 or 3 different baits in a mix. Pleasure fishing if I had enough different bits and bobs I'd happily throw them together providing I thought they would...

    Re: decline in rivers

    I agree with Sam, the Thames last year was full of roach, every time I went I was catching 15/20 even 30lb / of roach. This year its been a struggle to catch 10lb. However a fortnight ago at Walton I...

    Re: end peg?

    I think the term came from back in the canal and river days. End pegs were often by a bridge or a weir and generally a flier because of the feature rather than being the end peg. A downstream end peg...

    Nearer 20 I should think! It has 2000 written on the butt section but doesn't say if that refers to when it was made. I've had it at least 15 years and I bought it 3rd hand. Before that I had a Milo...
