    Re: The river that’s a legal person

    I'd love to share your optimism, and this is nothing personal, but I've got the impression most people would vote for a couple of quid in their pockets, even at the risk of drowning, frying or being...

    Re: The river that’s a legal person

    Sorry - no accusation there. I mean that our government is likely to prioritise business concerns above environmental ones, judging by the way EU standards have been ignored in the past when we...

    Re: The river that’s a legal person

    The incentive could be to protect the environment - but I understand why you've discounted that!
  4. Re: Length of line between end of pole and float

    I'm not that familiar, Mark. The pole's good on the nearby Trent, but it tends to repay a running through rather than a holding-still style. There's a local canal, the Beeston, a 2.5 mile navigation...
  5. Re: Length of line between end of pole and float

    The fashion for a really short line of a few inches, often backshotted, has been driven by commercial anglers, often fishing for F1's and trying to hold their pellet hookbait right on a small patch...

    Re: The river that’s a legal person

    Whether environmental protections will be strengthened or weakened when we leave the EU has been questioned on here lately. There are some interesting clues about UK/EU attitudes in this article...
  7. Re: Does anyone buy fishing tackle from Ebay ?

    My preference for discontinued rods and reels means that most purchases in recent years have been from Ebay. I study the ads, ask questions and look to buy from angler-owners. If the seller's...

    Re: Maggot feeders

    Don't forget you've got a John Roberts Feeder Hole Enlarger tool! (Somewhere) That helps get them out of block-ends more quickly.

    Have you ever tried the smallest of the Window Feeders, Mike? ...

    Re: Why didn’t I think of this before!

    Fair enough, Chris. I've found the cork on Daiwa Armlock handles gets compressed enough to make the bands loose, but only after a long, long time, and then a bit of tape tightens them up again. The...

    Re: Why didn’t I think of this before!

    See how you get on. I think the "reels fall off" complaints are somewhat overstated. If sliding bands don't hold reels on ok, how did the Marks's, Ashurst's, Walker's - and everybody else up til...

    Re: Why didn’t I think of this before!

    Looks like an improvement, if you don't mind having the reel tied up to one rod.

    I tried a few things to adapt the skinny, bright, cold fitting on Carbonactive rods, the ones that look like this

    Re: Hook length weaker than main line?

    Yes. Deliberately so. If the hooklength breaks first, the fish ends up with less tackle attached to it, and you just lose your hook and the fish. If you snag the bottom, a tree etc, you'll probably...

    Re: Newark Needle Floats

    I had one of those floats - I think it was free with Angler's Mail. It went in the float box, adding to the random bunch in there, but I can't recall that it ever came out. Some of the top anglers...
  14. Re: Who could catch a fish without tackle on a desert island?

    It wasn't too hard to solve the original problem ( Markg's home-made braid, Another Dave's gorge hook, half coconut method-feeder, crab boillie, shorts-cord hooklength)

    But the stone seatbox I...

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

    Fair answer. Part of the enormity of the problem is that we are all embedded in a society that has been built around our use of energy, food production, transport etc etc, and can't just jump out of...

    I honestly can't tell from this post whether you a) think there is no problem b) think there is such an insuperable problem that it is futile to even think it can be addressed.

    Of course there are. Leaving aside for a moment the issue of how of how science is done and by whom, all sides in the debate can be termed political. Campaigning for public health goals, such as a...

  19. Re: What was your first fish and where did you catch It ?

    The first fish I caught was a bootlace eel from the Shropshire Union in Chester, with a float on a bit of line tied to the end ring of a borrowed cane rod by one of the big kids I tagged along with. ...

    I agree the debate gets unhelpfully polarised. But I'm not inclined to think that because "both" (of course there are more than two) sides can be said to be funded, neither is to be believed. Being...
