    Re: New record Barbel announced

    Like others I have no interest in fish records. In the past yes but now I couldn't even tell you what the records are. There is no extra skill in catching records just right place right time; I would...

    There have been plenty of reports over the years of fish being caught where they weren’t.

    I see that the record for the Three-spined Stickleback was also broken. Can’t see them queuing up to catch that one again.

    Years ago carp were thought to be uncatchable in the winter now with the stocking of carp it proves just how wrong we were. The only reason they weren't caught was because they weren't there in any...

    I never got round to answering your question simply because I don't fish for carp. I have no experience in fishing the waters you fish or the methods you use.

    Stick at lure fishing once you start catching it becomes easier. The way I got the best out of lure fishing was to by not taking any other tackle but lure tackle. A lot of anglers use it as a last...

    I use to tie all my small hooks now I find it much easier to buy ready tied and have never had a problem. Can't remember ever losing a fish due to using ready tied hooks.

    Re: Tackle made in the UK
