    Re: Shotting for a stick float

    And if you do, keep hold of the line; if you let go and you've overshotted the float, it will end up at the bottom. How do I know..... :omg:

    Re: When to call it a day on a canal?

    I called it a day on canals when the mountain bikers, the joggers and the dog walkers couldn't agree whose turn it was to blunder into my carefully placed gear.

    Re: First time out....

    I get that you're into lure fishing. But why not consider trying a simple rig eg a light link leger with a couple of shot just to see if you can get bites on bait? Worm or maggot will tell you if...

    Re: Shotting for a stick float

    3,4 or 5 no4 sounds big enough for what you described, Mike. River Dane, by any chance?

    Splitting the shot into smaller ones is the way to go.

    It can be a bit fiddly to put lots of small shot...

    Re: How did you get on?

    The river has been dour since all the last rain ran off, so I met up with Steve on Sunday morning at the tench lake. It looked fine on a warm mid-morning, but Steve had been out before dawn on an...

    Re: carboot find!

    I don't know about your rod, or indeed carp rods or barge poles, but the graphics and X weave put it in a late 1980's series that includes this Triple X float rod that I've been hoarding unused for...

    Re: Waters you won't be going back to

    There's a big commercial complex a few miles out of town. On my (only) visit I saw anglers lined up on the bare mud banks of a recently dug and newly stocked lake. I fished the original, mature...

    Re: New or second hand

    I've bought many rods and reels second-hand, mainly because the gear I tend to like went out of production long ago. If you're careful, and a bit of luck helps, you can get what you want and at a...

    It looks like a beautiful place - come on, Mike, give it another go! The missing anglers probably just expired while on the waiting list for that club you're in! A bit of solitude beats being...

    I only find myself catching carp very occasionally, so I can't add anything. But I've seen a few videos of these big-weight carp matches, and I've noticed that anglers who spend most of their time...

    It's hardly "fighting", Daniel. I'm just inviting someone who is in favour of an uncompromising approach to fines, but feels his own fine was unfair, to expand on their reasoning. If we don't go...

    Like any good bleeding heart, I'd have to say any sympathy depends on the circumstances - so what's your mitigation?

    Re: Fishing seat/chairs.

    Re: Fishing seat/chairs.

    I'm not typical, but I have a definite take on seating for bad back anglers. I had a laminectomy aged 20, and have had a rheumatoid arthritis thing since, so I've had 40 odd years of trying to fish...

    Re: Water Temperatures

    One possible reason is that, unlike a barbel, you don't take your body temperature from the surrounding water...... but I take your point that fish can surprise us when they choose to feed.

    Re: stamping on a bait boat

    I wouldn't be good at "blocking it out of your mind", either. If you're the kind of angler who takes care not to impose your presence on others on the bank, it's hard to ignore those that do. It's...
