    Re: Bread, types, usage?

    That's where I first saw the method and I've done it that way ever since, or nearly. I cut the bread into about 10mm strips and just tear off what I want and fold it etc. Works well although the last...

    Re: Best butt rest for floater fishing

    If it's any consolation Mike I nearly lost mine last Thursday just as I was catapulting bait out.

    Had a few trips since last post. Nothing too remarkable unless having your landing net ripped by Pike counts. It's getting smarter. The thing was must have been under the peg right from the word go....

    Re: Fluked fish

    Ray's just reminded me. The biggest fish I've ever landed, a Mirror was hooked into the tail rubber of a snapped off Carp rig. 12:13 IIRC.

    Re: How did you get on?

    New club water for me yesterday. It's a club water but it's more like a well kept commercial than the club waters I've been to before. The verges look better than my lawn, not that that's saying...

    Re: Line strength and diameter

    It's the cross sectional area that determines the BS. If you work backwards from the .22@6lb you get ~7.7lb for the 0.25 - near enough for rock and roll. That approach probably doesn't work with...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Really hard day on the Dam yesterday. Two rods, 13' at ~12M and 10'6" for margins or up in the water at 12M both with 3.3lb fluoro to 16s light hook. Started fishing around 6am on the bottom and got...

    Re: Line strength and diameter

    I always measure and test line. I just like to know what I'm using. It's probably more important if you're using main and hooklength from different manufacturers as they all seem to have their own...

    Re: How did you get on?

    I'd more or less written off Friday for fishing on account of the threatened thunderstorms but I'd prepared bait just in case. Pai**ting, dec****ing some float making done and thunderstorms no longer...

    I wouldn't pay £200 for something unseen big brand or otherwise. Something I have contemplated and will probably do if AD ever have everything in stock at once is order several contenders and take...

    Fished the Dam a few times since last posting but have been a wire short of a USB cable. The old one got utilized in a permanent fixture where the other four have gone is anyone's guess and I wasn't...

    Re: Tips on Tares

    You've just reminded me to take mine out ready for tomorrow. I only do small amounts, 1/4 cup so if you're doing more it might not work - 500ml preheated flask, 1/4 cup Tares, fill with boiling water...

    Re: Browning Cenex Lines

    Silstar is very stretchy compared to most lines, enough I would say to distinguish it from others. Suspend a 1M length of both lines with say a 4oz weight and see how they compare. If they're...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Felt for you Mike. I don't think anyone would call the Dam an easy water and I have fished it a lot this year so should probably have done better than I did. Roach weren't a bad stamp though so not...

    Mike forgot to mention that 6 of his 'paltry' total were good sized Carp and that probably 50% of mine were Rudd and as most will know, not catching Rudd is considerably more challenging than...

    If you don't mind fixing one of the rings permanently I have some suitable adhesive lined heat shrink tubing I could spare. PM me if you want some.
