    Re: How did you get on?

    I think I'm about daced out! Reverted to a bolo float on a slightly more sedate middle Tees. The pace of the river is reducing as the levels drop as low as I've seen them recently. I simply chose a...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Working on the change being as good as a rest principle, I had a day out on the lower Tees. My prime motivation was an attempt to replace the dominant dace, of further upstream, with roach. I've not...

    Re: Shotting for a stick float

    Despite it being very much against the grain for most, I use 3 and 4g Bolo floats for an awful lot of my river fishing. However, you are talking about a fast shallow river where the touch of the...

    Ding, ding, round three.

    Wasn't planning to go today, the windy forecast put me right off. However, the nice warm sunshine changed my mind.

    Went to the same stretch of river but plumped for a...

    Another away day to the stretch of river I fished yesterday. This time armed with a little extra information, courtesy of the local tackle shop. Fished a peg with a bit of match form, having produced...

    Re: Minor tackle

    A few years back, Greys did some excellent scissors at a very sensible price. I have several pairs spread throughout multiple tackle boxes and kits. Though the Greys had two tone green handles, they...

    Re: How did you get on?

    No fishing, as such, due to the only match that takes place on my usual river haunts taking place today. As I usually see no one when on the river, I took the opportunity to see how some of the older...

    Re: How did you get on?

    I've been threatening to get out on at least two days this week, but not made it. One day I just couldn't face the wind. Yesterday, I even set off to go but only got as far as a good wander around...

    Also interesting to note that Eddie Benham (I think) posted on this thread, yet that post has disappeared.

    Re: Where to buy nets...

    I wasn't doubting that, but it makes no odds. You're unlikely to get a replacement mesh for that kind of net off the shelf. The only real answer is bodging, or getting something specially made. One...

    Re: Where to buy nets...

    It's nigh on impossible to get replacement mesh for the vast majority of landing nets. The exceptions largely revolve around the 42" arm and spreader type carp nets. I can't say that it fills me with...

    The semi-regular, post football, dabble on the river yielded six trout, four grayling, nine dace and the inevitable horde of minnows. The only thing particularly unusual about this session was the...

    Many river anglers still do stick to long hooklinks when float fishing. I'd go so far as to suggest that the bulk of the few I still see do exactly that. I find it a little difficult to believe that...

    Hi Simon,
    sadly, you've not moved to the best of areas for barbel. If you wish to stick to rivers as close as possible, you are probably looking at the Wear and Tees. Both hold barbel, but...
