    Re: Loosing fish River Trent

    Ted Carter of Preston had the best Barbel rods in the country (IMO) made for them by Harrison. Their summer rod was light and very responsive with a lovely playing action. The Winter rod is powerful,...

    Re: Decathlon,what a rubbish outlet...

    Isome is good, on the basis it will sit in your tackle box for yonks if needed, but I would wager that limpets will out fish it almost every time.

    You aren’t a million miles away in Wolverhampton, I’m only in Stoke. If you fancy meeting up for a couple hours fishing some time I can show you how I fish. I’m no expert but I’m sure I could at...
  8. Re: Some questions from an idiot (premade rigs, shot, line)

    Sounds like the rigs are fairly poor. Rigs should unravel like how you explained the first one, it also sounds like the others aren’t shotted correctly.

    Choose your rod with your bait as much in mind as the fish. How do you plan to fish for the Zander? If you are Spinning then that rod would be far from my choice, dead or live bait and we might be...

    I’m feel sure that contravenes the rules of eBay which I thought... though could be proven wrong, state that a listing if for a specific available item. And once you win and pay the item is yours.

    Looks like an ice fishing rod, certainly doable as proven and perhaps even useful in certain swims (with better ring design on the small rod).... but where a longer rod is useable, I would ask why...
