    Re: How did you get on?

    Out for the second time in my renaissance. As I said I've not picked anything rock hard for the first few trips.

    So, a delightful carp water on my club ticket, which I probably only fish every...

    Hi All,

    As I put on my 'I'm back, I think' thread, got out for the first time since May on Tuesday.

    re: 15lb line, or thereabouts

    I used Sensor for years until about 5 years ago. Changed to Big Game which I think is better. Lasts longer and more durable. If you look after them, both are very good, relatively cheap lines.

    It is cyclical but if the water quality is good, one dominant species get's replaced by another. When the lot collapses, there is a much more serious problem.

    An angler who doesn't want to ban angling, there's a twist!

    It'll happen over time and the propaganda will make angling socially unacceptable along with all the other field sports. It may be a...

    Re: Are eels realy endangered?

    Certainly on the rivers that I fish, an eel is a rarity now. 30 years ago, as light faded you'd be pestered with bootlaces if the bait had anything remotely meaty in it.
