    Re: To pole or not to pole

    I have 3 poles all left to me by my late brother. I’ve not got a clue how to use them. I’m pretty sure they are mixed up between each other and no idea how to sort them . I’ve used whips when taking...

    Thanks Sam that’s a good idea re the waterproofs. I had wondered on how restrictive a day shelter would be and not being a sit behind alarms angler sounds like it’s just be a pain. I can manage to...

    Brolly vs Day shelter thingy

    Looking at replacing my old £10 car boot brolly. It’s not the biggest thing but has served me ok. But I could do with something bigger and preferably lighter. To keep me drier and warmer Mines old...

    Re: Is the grass always greener

    My local river is well up and will be rising a bit more I guess. Against my better judgement I decided to fish it yesterday and had one chub.
    I’ll be back on the lakes next week that’s if the roads...

    Re: Disgorger for deep hooked Perch

    I agree, I’m a pretty poor lure fisherman but every pike I’ve caught has been hooked in the scissors.

    Re: How did you get on?

    Back on the Soar today I’ve covered 2 odd miles today, drizzle and mist followed by heavy rain, but not overly cold. I’d drawn a blank over the 2 1/2 hours of fishing. River was up a little more than...
  11. Re: Tying spade end hooks and hooklengths,or the inability to.

    Yes 16 down to 22’s is my norm, I’d like to have longer hook lengths than I do at the moment 8” I’m sure I’d get a better presentation. But until I can warrant/afford a new hook length storage thingy...
  12. Re: Tying spade end hooks and hooklengths,or the inability to.

    I can do them with a matchman hook tyer at home, but wouldn’t attempt to do it on the bank. I make up hook lengths 10 at a time all same length bs hook size etc. Only use spade ends 16 downwards.
    I...

    Finally managed to get an hour by the river this morning. Still flowing well and a little high. Banked 1 chub, lost another to a snapped hook length. Trotted bread flake on a stick float. Nice hour...

    Re: Floating baits on a feeder rig

    I punch a load out at home and let them dry, really dry. Then put them in an airtight bag. You can hair rig 3-4 and get a big fluffy bait after a few minutes of it being back in the water. Saved me...

    Floating baits on a feeder rig

    Warburtons is usually the best I find, nice and fresh it has a good doughy texture that holds on the hook well.

    Re: When to strike when float fishing for Pike.

    John yes thank you I think that makes sense. It sounds a bit like when you get run from a carp on the feeder. You just give enough tension to hook itself rather than a conventional strike.

    Re: When to strike when float fishing for Pike.

    Thanks Phil for the information, I’d much rather miss a fish than deep hook one. That’s why I thought I’d ask. I don’t know any pike anglers except one who’s too ill to fish these days.

    Re: When to strike when float fishing for Pike.

    Thanks, that’s great advice. I’d read somewhere the other day about keeping the trebles close together and I understand why now.
    I’m thinking of trying mackerel tail or something to start with.
