    Re: How did you get on?

    This is a bit up from the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, and yes it's very much reduced. The canalized sections are much the same as they always were though. A little further upstream from my...

    Re: How did you get on?

    On Thursday i met my mate in town for lunch and decided to take bit of a detour home along the Chelmer. It was flowing grudgingly and covered for miles in not only duckweed but also it's even more...

    Re: First time out....

    I'd stay general until you know what lives in what stretches. For me personally i like to use a light setup that covers perch, chub and baby pike. Lures up to about 2 inches i suppose. If i target...

    Re: First time out....

    This is normal for lure fishing, especially when you start out. Gradually you start to get a few follows, takes and fish. Only then do you start to get some kind of confidence in particular lures for...

    Feed little and often is probably the best tip there is. It's all about building the swim.

    Re: Pre-tied hook links.

    Yes but in fairness you do work 18 hours a day in a Drennan hooktying sweatshop, who can blame you for sneaking a few out.

    I'm too distracted by how much you're varying the extension on your rod rest to pay attention to the match results.

    Re: Float length

    As a general rule of thumb, the less stuff on the line the better, so I'll use the smallest float i can get away with.

    If it's windy you might need a bigger float to keep the bait still, if...

    Re: New to fishing with kids

    If the hook bursts the maggot it means it's not as sharp as it should be. This means you won't hit as many bites as you start to "bump fish off", in the angling parlance.

    Re: New to fishing with kids

    To be honest the tackle you've listed all sounds ideal.

    You can always forget the loop-to-loop, just snip the loop off the hooklength and tie it to your mainline with a water knot.

    What about your first day license only costing, say, £2, your second day of the year £3 then it goes up to £6?

    If it were me I'd go for the roach.

    I do have the same problem freelining for chub sometimes. Last time it happened I switched to a light ledger and sat on my hands until the rod went round.

    This year's £2.49 rucksack makes as good a lure/roving bag as you'll need. I just shorten one of the straps and max out the other one. God knows what the Chinese pay the kids that oil the robots that...
