  1. Re: The effortless, everlasting wormery

    Are you sure they're lobworms in your compost heap? I've never founds lobs in any compost heap or bin - plenty of brandlings and redworms, but not lobs. These are mainly to be found living in healthy...

    Re: Reading old fishing books

    Fred Wagstaffe used to write a lot about summer pike on lures back in the 60s. I think the idea of a (voluntary) close season for them was introduced on some waters once their high requirement for...

    Re: Lesney bread press

    I had the same experience at the same age - twice! I did try to use them and both quickly jammed and the thumbscrews refused to turn. Both binned...

    These floats were discussed on the TFF a couple of years ago - Allcocks listed them in their 1967 and 1968 Anglers' Guides as the Pendant Combination Float: Hinged floats? - Page 2 - The Traditional...

    Re: Changes

    I suppose that depends on far back you want to go! Re-reading a lot of copies of Fishing magazine from the 1960s recently reminded me of quite how much controversy there was between "thinking...

    Re: Global warming? Oh no not again!!!

    A lot more people read (and presumably believe?) the tabloids than serious newspapers or scientific journals. What incentive to change their behaviour do they have, when barely a week passes without...

    Re: Bargains. Let us know.

    I had an email from Angling Direct this morning, offering a re-chargeable Chub head torch for £30, reduced from £55.99. My old Energiser has seen better days, so after a quick check to establish that...

    The Harrisons website states: "When you buy a Harrison rod you are getting a blank that is hand rolled here in Liverpool". That sounds good enough for me, even though I only have one of their rods -...
