    Re: The good ol' days of fishing

    Sea angling is now an exercise in nostalgia for me! It's definitely a case of "the good old days" as I look back fifty years to when I was a teenager in Suffolk.

    Re: Soft pellets.

    I have been experimenting with various paste mixes recently.

    Best for casting and for bites has been Sonubaits Fibre Paste in Krill flavor, with about 20% ground up boilies/pellets.

    Re: River Lot, France in Febuary

    If brand names are OK then it was Sonubaits Fibre Paste in Krill flavor. I ground up my friends Slayer Triple S boilies to add to that mix. Triple S is krill and green lipped mussel, I believe.

    Back down at the same swim this afternoon with a friend. First cast (like last time!) a bite within a few minutes resulted in a fit 5 pound barbel.

    Just like the last session no further fish!
