    Crexit?

    Hey Guys, I know no one likes a smart arse, but I really need to remind you (quite fittingly for today- dawn of a new era ;-) there‘s always somebody worse off than yourself. Eg. think of the poor...

    Poll: Your thoughts on summer pike fishing?

    It’s already been said but it’s 100% my view too. Go lure fishing instead. It’s more fun and tactically makes lots more sense too, when the pike aren’t moving around too much.

    No first hand...

    Re: Runnings v semi-fixed. Popularity

    I’m intrigued too to hear what people say. When I read forums my impression is that a lot of people use running rigs but when I search the web for articles/videos on rigs, it’s most often fixed lead...
  5. Re: What is it about fishermen complain about skimmer/bream or carp

    That’s a good example. I love tench fishing but I’d rather blank than catch a tench full of spawn.

  6. Re: What is it about fishermen complain about skimmer/bream or carp

    Don’t get me wrong. I didn’t say I don’t care and of course ultimately I go fishing to catch fish just like everybody does.

    The point I wanted to make is that that‘s just one of many reasons and...
  7. What is it about fishermen complain about skimmer/bream or carp

    People go fishing for all different reasons and with different motivations and I’d consider it wrong to judge other anglers on what they do or (moreover) don’t want to catch. One might be interested...

    Re: How many reels?

    Nothing to boast about. Just reels that get the job done. I like to keep rods set up too, so have just as many reels as rods. In fact, more.

    In regular use:

    I buy a large portion of my clothes from Aldi nowadays, be it for fishing or everyday and I fully agree; even at 'normal' prices I would praise the quality, but take into account the discount price,...

    Re: Best method for catching large perch...

    Perch are predatory fish, so to me it seems logical to focus on that, if I'm explicitly targeting large perch. I used to use the classic minnow livebait, but being illegal over here, by process of...

    Thanks, yeah, can get those. I think they've even got them in my tackle shop, but you're right... a bit pricier is to say the least. ;) I was specifically looking for a basic low cost pellet, and...

    In assorted YouTube videos I'm always hearing about using 'normal' feed pellets. Now, I kind of know what's meant and Skrettins is the name that usually crops up. My problem though is that I live in...

    And casters because they don't sell them (and preparing your own is time consuming).
  16. Help on a couple of items of tackle, please

    I noticed the quick release at the bottom, seems like a 'deluxe' version of the one I've got :) If I'm not mistaken, there are 2 ways you can use it. First would be top eye only. You can leave it to...
  17. Help on a couple of items of tackle, please

    If I had to guess (which I do) I would say that the first item is some kind of crude east European item, maybe used for keeping your catch (typically Wels) on a line, which I've often seen in...

    Choice of line breaking strain ?

    My advice is don't get too hung up on BS. Presentation is most important and modern day lines are fine enough not too make any difference if you use 8 or 10lb. Obviously you wouldn't tie a size 20...
