    Re: Chub and the future

    Is there the tinniest bit of danger here of attributing predation as the problem based on nothing other than diminished catch returns?

    Re: Pellet mash

    Just going to add to this that, flow allowing, there's actually two very distinct things you can do with a feeder in regards to how the feed is going to come out.

    When I start a session, before...

    Re: John Wilson Barbel Quiver Rod

    Yes indeed, it used to flow substantially more year round... I can't help thinking that some of the decline in the thames barbel population is due to that decreased flow (managed through the weirs no...

    Re: John Wilson Barbel Quiver Rod

    Some of this will depend on the type of river you want to fish - can you tell us that? Maybe give us some examples?

    Also, you don't mention the b/s of the line you're using. Generally, most opt...

    Re: Floats for shy biting fish.

    Alan, have you seen premier floats Stillwater antenna? That's available in a 3bb model, it's 150mm, long though so probably nearer 5inches than 4. Its what I would class as a canal float in my...

    Re: Method feeder in Rivers

    Alan makes a great point here about the consistency of the groundbait, which probably has more bearing than the type of feeder used. If you mix a cement like consistency then you'll get a slow...

    There might be another angle (sorry for the double entendre!) here... which is - "what are you hoping for once the fish is hooked"? So the matchman, having hooked his fish (lets say, an 8lb carp) -...
