    Re: Reels and the cost your prepared to pay.

    I have had a Ninja 4012 seize up on me. It cost £20 for the parts and I fixed it myself. It was the anti reverse bearings. They had rusted up! I must have got it wet and never dried it out?

    Hi Keora,

    At this time of year there are still chub and barbel to be caught, but mainly chub. We also get pestered with pike during the match held on there.

    Re: Ticks

    If there are sheep about, you should be careful in long wet grass.

    I seem to remember way back in the 80's the colouring E123 red was banned in the EU for being cancergenic.

    Re: The red stuff.

    Remember that the colour red changes to black when it reaches about 20 feet depth in water. Oddly through, pink still stays pink at that depth?

    Re: What hooks shouldn't I use for bream?

    It all depends on what size you call a bream? For skimmers up to a 1lb you can use fine wire hooks. Up to 5lb a medium gauge hook and above 5lb a heavy weight specimen type hook.

    Are you sure your soft pellets are not coming off the hook when it hits the water when casting out.

    Try banded hard pellet, these won't come off.

    On the plus side, you can sometimes put an old jacket or pair of trousers on and find a fiver in the pocket!
