    Re: Human bait boat...

    A couple of wayward casts with a big rapala on the end of the line and I would be shipping water anyway. I have always been wary of inflatables after fishing from one as a kid, after a couple of...
  2. Re: Why River Fishing is Better Than Fishery Lakes

    I love trotting a stick float but these days I just can't afford the £50-£70 for a season ticket for the two or three times I can get to the river. In contrast for a fiver I can fish the local...

    Re: ''Some things I've never done''.

    There are lots of things I have abandoned after a few tries, never to try again such as pole fishing, night fishing for carp and pier fishing. The few things I regret not having had a go at yet...

    Re: Bankside Rage !

    Yes, I have had aggro from carpers who think that buying the same season ticket that I do entitles them to 24 hour exclusive access to a particular spot. I have even had someone stand in front of me...

    Re: Maggot feeder float

    I used to fish a feeder float for carp in my local lake a while back. When it worked it could be great, either feeding maggots or seeds/grains but the biggest problem I had was trapped bubbles. On a...

    Re: supertision, fishing and you

    I always flick a penny into the river before I fish. No idea why but my grandfather always did likewise, although it was a farthing back then.

    Re: what do you think of shorter rods

    Oh well, I just bought a Maver Abyss X 10ft waggler rod. If its ok I have a bargain, if it stinks then I haven't lost much and it will do as a spare or a guest rod.

    Re: what do you think of shorter rods

    Since my angling changed from mainly small natural stillwaters to mainly commercial fisheries I have been thinking of getting a pair of rods for commercial carp bagging. My delicate 13' match rod has...

    This may be the first time I have missed the 16th on the Trent since 1976. I have had to chuck my DRAC ticket in due to rising cost and falling income so unless I can find a suitable stretch of day...

    Are there any structures at all where you are? Anywhere there is a bit of a breakwater or a jetty will mean the fish are closer than on open beach. If you are losing tackle on the rocks then try a...

    Re: What you love about coarse fishing?

    While my greatest passion is for dry fly fishing on a nice small river, my finances no longer run to it. For the same price as a single day I can get a fortnight's coarse fishing. But I find there is...

    I'm with Peter Jacobs on this one, rig fresh every time. It isn't like wagglers are the most complicated of set-ups. The closest I get to pre-rigging is to test the shotting and put the actual...

    They are, but if I found a rod with a fantastic action made from reconstituted sewage I would rather have that than a so-so rod made from the finest carbon fibre. What I meant was that I wouldn't go...

    Re: Duplon on coarse rods?

    To be honest, grubby cork handles annoy me. I tend to give them a scrub from time to time which inevitably shortens their lifespan. I like duplon as it is far easier to clean up to a near-new state....

    Re: Top Five Hook Baits for Tench.

    For the waters I fish:

    1. Corn
    2. Pellets
    3. Bread
    4. Bread/Meat paste
    5. bunch of red maggots

    I tend to stick to 1 & 2 but 3 & 4 are always in my snap tin for emergencies.
