    Re: Are you tempted I was.

    There's a whole multi, multi million £ industry out there looking for your weak spots.
    A one sided battle, submit to the inevitable....:omg:
  2. Re: Tying spade end hooks and hooklengths,or the inability to.

    I recall in my carp fishing days (a long time ago and very amateur), taking low water salmon hooks, cutting down the shank and filing it at an angle, then putting a blob of solder on the end and...

    Re: Tackle made in the UK

    Quite a few Harrison rods, both coarse and fly, all custom built from blanks by me. A few Centrepins - Ariel, carter, traditional angling - can't think of much else unless I include home molded...

    Re: How did you get on?

    I shall join the doom and gloom club, a wasted 120 mile trip to the river, only to find out it had been piddling down all night up there (dry at home) and trotting for grayling was out of the...

    Well done, something bigger will come along soon enough, especially now you have the confidence that you are doing it right and stick at it.

    When you least expect it there will be a big bend in...

    Re: How did you get on?

    I have caught plenty of carp on deadbaits, they are a perishing nuisance especially when I think I am attached to a British record perch!
    Have always been surprised that dedicated carp anglers don't...

    Re: Carp fly freinds

    I am guessing you are not UK, not the ideal time of year to start targeting carp on the fly - basically surface fishing. Sure you could catch them but a lot of effort for small rewards. But if you...

    Re: Favourite bird?

    Don't think I can pick a general favourite as we are very lucky where we live, raptors are common over the house and in the garden, peregrine, goshawk, buzzards, kites, sparrowhawk, these are the...

    Re: Canal lure fishing-Need some advice.

    Re: Drennan 3 metre twistlock handle

    Tend to find that dirt and grit go through the little breather hole in the butt cap - because I tend to use it as a walking stick on steep river banks :eek: and it clogs up.
    So regularly I unscrew...

    Re: How did you get on?

    I have a drennan net handle, I do regularly take it apart and clean the inside of the tube and the expanding bit. All sorts of dirt gets inside the tube (the way I use it) and will speed up wear and...

    Re: Fishing method you are unlikely to pursue

    A method feeder, a baitrunner reel, a boilie.
    Just things I would not use.
  15. Re: The 50lber – Let’s see the doubters’ ‘proof’!

    I would suggest most of us are bored stiff by the whole story - which is almost a troll for the sake of viewing statistics.
    Equally sort of fascinated and following it to see when someone eventually...

    Re: Gaymire: Are the Monsters Still There?

    I have been reading some of this and the funny thing is, I had never, ever heard of the Gaymire fish or this controversy. Nothing at all.

    And the next thing is, I find it all rather pathetic, it...

    Re: First time out....

    As someone with a single season of fishing with jigs, my experience is that some days the river is empty of fish, work and work at it for a couple of hours and not a sniff or follow from a fish.

    Re: Rod tip breakage

    Have to say that I have heard all this about rod breakages in top end rods 25 years ago. Nothing much changes.
    When I was working in retail it involved top end fly rods costing many £100s, Loomis,...

    Re: Do trout get spooked?

    Yes, you need to keep moving on a river for trout. Once you have had the fish out of that spot there may not be another, or if there is it will be much smaller or almost certainly spooked and hiding...
  24. Re: 131 offences reported as volunteer bailiffs carry out over 3,650 patrols during c

    I suppose that depends on the cost and again how it is collected (voluntary donations?). I do plenty of voluntary conservation work nearly all year round, I could add up the 100s of hours per year I...
  25. Re: 131 offences reported as volunteer bailiffs carry out over 3,650 patrols during c

    The problem with any licence is that once you make it compulsory then somehow it has to be checked and enforced. A TV licence, car tax licence, fishing licence, for instance and nobody has come up...
