    Re: All this Rain

    Cheers for that Sylvanilo, all makes sense. I've only been fishing the seacourt the last three seasons or so, and I definitely agree that the fishing is patchy. That said, I've never known it be...

    Re: All this Rain

    The seacourt? Empty? Not sure i'd agree entirely with that. I generally catch when I fish it around Wytham. Nothing massive but I couldn't possibly say it was empty? I had a chat with an old...

    Re: Brolly vs Day shelter thingy

    I have and use both... the brolly sees far more use (it's a maver flatback with a "nubrolli" pole system where the pole can be relocated at the back to give you more room underneath, this is really...

    Re: Tackle shop mark up on boilies

    Terry, i'm not sure the implication was that the profit was misunderstood... more that the margin might move around a bit, based on what kind of a deal you've got from the supplier. Worst case...

    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.

    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?
