  1. Re: Hook Sizes when fishing Fox soft lures...

    Unfortunately hooks of supposedly the same size can be different lengths with different gapes, just as softbaits of the same length can be different shapes and thickness making it difficult to have...
  2. Re: What was your first fish and where did you catch It ?

    I was knee high to a grasshopper and on holiday somewhere up North, I'd made friends with a another boy on the campsite and he took me 'fishing' for bullhead that we caught by lifting stones and then...

    Re: Global warming? Oh no not again!!!

    Re: Global warming? Oh no not again!!!

    :omg::omg:

    97% percent of climate scientists agree that the Earth's climate is warming due to man. I can believe them or some random fella that put a video up on youtube.
  5. Re: EU commits to the Water Framework Directive: rejecting attempts by member states

    I was being sarcastic.

    I very much doubt anything will change regarding water quality in the UK but it would have done without Brexit. But then I'm very cynical
  6. Re: EU commits to the Water Framework Directive: rejecting attempts by member states

    Luckily, due to Brexit, the UK will be free to ignore this ruling :)

    Re: Baileys no 1 horse feed

    I've used all sorts of animal feeds in the past, including horse feed but I honestly can't remember the brands. IMO they're excellent for mass pre-baiting where quantity is needed, particularly if...

    Re: Canal lure fishing-Need some advice.

    I rig them up on a size 6 jig head, I'm using the AGM finesse jig heads.

    The weight is a balancing act as it all depends upon wind, water depth, retrieve speed etc. You NEED to maintain contact...
  10. Re: Ever fallen out with the hooks you use.

    I've been using kamasan or Drennan hooks for a long while, I sometimes wonder if I'm missing out on a better product as I'm unwilling to try something else but then I'm very happy with them. Thinking...

    Seriously, I'm very fond of Pheasants. I hear them a lot when I'm fishing in the morning, they're very pretty and when they're kind enough to leave me a tail feather or two I can tie my...

    Re: Ticks

    The quicker you get them out the less chance of infection. Burning them or suffocating them can cause them to vomit before they drop off increasing your chance of infection. The best and safest way...

    Re: Canal lure fishing-Need some advice.

    2-10g or a 1-7g will handle jacks, I might not choose those weights to target pike but I wouldn't be worried about the odd fish coming along. As an example of what these rods can cope with the below...

    Re: Canal lure fishing-Need some advice.

    I use fluoro, which isn't tooth proof, with single barbless hooks on lures of less than 2" presuming jacks aren't a problem. With trebles, bigger lures or waters with lots of Jacks then I use wire, I...

    It's been 15 years since I've lived in Wigan but

    Horrock's flash used to have some huge rudd in and some half decent pike too. I never really fished it for anything but those species.

    re: Do pike really bite through line?

    Nope, a pike's tooth is shaped like a knife blade, the sides are sharp as are the points. A zander's tooth is shaped like a pin, so round sides and a sharp pointy top.



    A pike can't purposely...

    Re: Canal Jigging Setup help

    Personally I like Daiwa J-braid the 8 strand version, it behaves itself and for an 8-strand braid it's well priced. On my perch set-up I use the .06mm braid, which is sold as 9lb but in reality is...

  23. Re: Video pike taking topwater duo shinmushi lure

    I knot it but then I don't use anything heavier than 55lb, if I was I'd probably crimp it.

  24. Re: Can you help me choose the right hook bait (feeder fishing)?

    Where are you fishing?
