    Re: Weird Hardy Conquest 'Pin

    I'd guess at it being a pre-production prototype/factory sample that's made it out into the wild. There are plenty of little details that made it in the production models. I'd love to know what was...

    Re: Rod endorsements

    Here's a little tale of endorsements from my days in another sporting sphere. I used to compete at a pretty high level in a couple of little known disciplines. The club I was a member of had a few of...

    Re: Rod endorsements

    A name on a rod is no guarantee of anything. Plenty of the Rod Hutchinson rods have been firmly in budget territory. In no way were they premium products.

    Similar can be said of many of the...

    Re: Raked a gravel pit

    As long as you avoid methods that might leave your hook bait buried in the muck, you shouldn't have too many problems in the silty areas. You are also far more likely to see the tench bubbling in...

    Pound for pound, pretty well. I thought the six pounder was a 10lb+ carp for a while.

    Re: Carp Reels

    3.25lb TC are into long distance casting tool territory. There's little point in fitting particularly small reels to such rods. All that doing so will achieve is to hinder that casting ability. Even...

    Just a single bite for a slightly frustrating PB equalling 5lb 15oz.

    Re: Flourocarbon Hook links.

    I use little but fluorocarbon for hooklinks. I also use spade end hooks. They are tied with a Drennan hook tier, so whatever knot it is that it produces. At the other end, I use a figure of eight...

    Re: Match rods light?

    Daiwa match rods of the early nineties were mostly rated for mainlines of 2-4lb. However, I always believed that this was fairly conservative. I've certainly not been hesitant to put 6lb mainlines...

    Re: Canadian pondweed.

    If it's really thick, I find a combined campaign of raking and feeding is required. Rake to clear and feed over the area as often as possible. Feed something fairly cheap to keep the costs down and...

    Re: How did you get on?

    I had a fun filled morning of sieving and riddling. I got my backside to the lake for about 1500. I then decided that it was probably a bit too risky to fish blind without a bit of raking. Half an...

    Do as you see fit, preferably without hectoring others if they choose a different path. We all live in different circumstances and what's right for you may not be right for others.

  21. Re: Night Fishing - is it allowed? Angling Trust Update

    I don't disagree, but that's just an interpretation of what has been said. It may well be the correct one, but those that fish nights want clarification. There's nothing remotely unreasonable in...
  22. Re: Night Fishing - is it allowed? Angling Trust Update

    Whilst I have no interest in night fishing, I have some sympathy with those that do. Whether day only anglers appreciate it or not, there are a lot of anglers out there that simply don't go fishing...

    You can certainly interpret Johnson's words that way. However, I very much doubt that he had anglers in mind when saying it. As I understand it, the ATr are seeking clarification.
