    Re: Old shimano baitrunner advice please

    Depends how old they are and how much use/abuse they've had.

    I'm a big Shimano b/runner fan (and user), but older models may not have spare parts available these days (e.g. worm gears) if they go?

    Re: Big Chub – Missing the Eights

    As I was saying on another thread recently, there are distinct advantages to working with another, trusted angler. This has been proven even on a stretch we both know well.

    Re: Paste baits for chub

    Although I never really got to use it much, I would mount it as per Graham's suggestion, wrapped with a real piece. Best of both worlds?

    Re: PB Chub.

    All the 7s (with one exception on single maggot/inline feeder) and 8s to boilie.

    Some of the early 6s came on maggot and one to worm, but there were more fish around then.

    I stopped using...

    Re: Paste baits for chub

    I kept picking up double-figure barbel on mine so I went back to boilies.

    I found the chub thin on the ground pre-Xmas and contacted them with gusto afterwards. They tended to come back on to the...

  8. Re: Chub fishing and learning how to read the water.

    Yes, I think depth is cover in itself, especially where the flow is spread and not so pronounced between fast/crease/slow/. On the river bed the flow is probably fairly uniform across most of the...
  9. Re: Chub fishing and learning how to read the water.

    Difficult to say. I went into the stretch "blind". There was a pronounced 4 ft marginal shelf dropping to a deeper middle section. I found out later that I'd inadvertently picked the swim with a...
  10. Re: Chub fishing and learning how to read the water.

    These comments are way too generalised.

    I can think of plenty of swims I target chub in where one rod will go more or less in the middle. It depends on where the flow and the crease is (if there...

    It seems to be true for most forums on most subjects, I'm sorry to say.

    Re: Waveney Chub Group

    To spell it out for you:

    I don't need to quantify anything. We are talking very specifically about the Waveney and its stock. That is what the thread is about? Or would you argue the toss on that...

    Not that one John. ;)

    Colin, when you reference your opinion to Big chub, rather than just "chub" we can have a worthwhile debate. A common error.

    It doesn't necessarily make catching harder, it can have the opposite effect.
    Pressure may only make itself felt once the fish are starting to be caught. There's a big difference between half a...

    Why wouldn't they Colin? It's the fundamental basis of a Specimen Group.

    Re: Why are barbel attracted to sea flavours

    No more so than several other species, e.g. carp, bream and chub, all of which take small fish and fry.

    Substitute the words "sea flavours" with meat or cheese?

    Benny, I assumed it was someone else's post you were quoting and I really couldn't be bothered to check whose it was.
