    PROPER REELS!
    I would get them serviced over buying new current models.
     
    If you do decide to go new, of all the current Shimano range have a play with the current Beastmasters, but shop around for price. I think they are much better than anything over the £85 price range, including the Ultegras. 
    That's from working in a tackle shop.

    salokcinnodrog got a reaction from kevtaylor in A Blank but what was learnt 😱   
    I'm positive I had fish feeding over my bait this week, in fact this morning, but I felt because it was over birdfood and Vitalin they weren't picking up boilies, so with previous sessions in mind I had ordered some treats for them for hookbaits.
    The massive flat patch is where one of my baits was, but a snowman hookbait, 15mm pop-up over an 18mm bottom bait, not a bleep. I'm pretty positive it was carp clearing the smaller food items.

    Swearing will not be Tolerated on the Forum. 
     
    I have removed and edited posts to remove [censored] language. There is no need for it. If you cannot post without swearing then simply do not post! 
    As for Swearing, I don't care if you use asterisks, @, figures etc to replace a letter. The Implication is there and as far as I'm concerned counts as Swearing.

    Sadly I have had to delete a user today.     Can i remind all user's of carp.com that swearing isn't allowed. If you hide words behind asterisks, the [censored] box is seen on any post, the post will simply be removed. No matter how tame you think the word is, if its in the [censored] box then its banned, and you will be also.  You have an edit button in the top, right hand corner of all of your post's, there is no excuse, rules are rules

    He fell foul of the swearing rule...
    If it was a slip on one post I might have ignored it, but it was on four or five with edits that I wasn't going to do.

    I can give you an add to this:
    Start off with a basic hair rig and adapt and play with it.
    I mention the perfect hooking point, middle of the bottom lip. If you are losing fish to hook hookpulls during the fight at the start, are hooking them at the very front of the mouth, the hair is not long enough.
     
    When the basic hair rig stops catching move onto the next development, the sliding or extending hair, or add a line aligner.
     
    As @yonny says, a bottom bait rig, and a pop-up rig it really is that simple.
     
    I don't fish zigs, so I can't comment on their effectiveness.
     
    How effective your rig is can be changed by what and how you feed.
    A rig with a short hair can be good for fishing over particles or groundbait, yet over boilies may be very ineffective. A rig with a long hair may be great for boilies, yet awful for fishing over particles; the long haired bait may be blown in and out with no hooking, or alternatively cause bite-offs.

    Sorry, I forgot to reply to you after my last post, although it has given me a chance to use and abuse mine over a winter of pike fishing and a couple of months of carp fishing, so I can give a fair appraisal of the Sonik Sk-tec standard chair.
    It's comfortable and at a sensible height that is easy to get level on sloping ground.
    Carpfeed did do a review on them, might be worth a Google.

    salokcinnodrog got a reaction from B B in Tips for testing pva in water   
    I used to do that to test my PVA as well, mesh, bags and string.
    I also test them in the margins in both summer and winter.
     
    Not all PVA is the same, there are some good brands, some 'ok' brands and some that just stick them in a hot wash in the machine and they still won't dissolve...
    I stick to particular brands of PVA wherever possible because I have tested them.
    Kryston bags and string, definitely good, along with mesh by Gardner and ESP. 
    However after an incident with Nash PVA bags 10+ years ago that did go through a 40⁰ wash without dissolving, I won't touch that brand.
    We also have the joys of direct Internet sales, so if you use a supplier on ebay, check and test it, and I would recommend, even if you use the same seller, test every purchase. I know some batches will come from different manufacturers, look and feel the same, but taste different and have different dissolve times.

    salokcinnodrog got a reaction from B B in PAC Announcement about summer pike fishing   
    Statement from PAC General Secretary, **** Culpin:
    THE PIKE ANGLERS CLUB AND THE ENVIRONMENT AGENCY STANCE ON WARM WATER PIKING IN THE NORFOLK BROADS
    After many years of lobbying by the PAC we at last have the support of the Environment Agency in relation to preventing pike fishing in warm water conditions. Attempts to introduce a Bye Law prohibiting such fishing have not yet materialised but a campaign to draw the attention of anglers to the real danger to pike when caught in warm water conditions is being launched in the Norfolk Broads and hopefully elsewhere. This will include posters that will be distributed throughout East Anglia in tackle shops, boatyards and in public places. Fact sheets are also being made available to anglers and the general public alike.
    None of this would have been possible without the tenacity and determination of the former PAC General Secretary John Currie and the input of the Norwich and District Pike Club and we should all be grateful that their efforts have resulted in this positive development.
    We hope that with the endorsement of the Environmental Agency anglers will take a responsible and sensible approach to fishing for pike in unsuitable water conditions. The reality is that many pike that are caught in warm water suffer and die as a result and we at the Pike Anglers Club will, with the support of other organisations, always look to welfare of the pike as a priority.
    We are grateful to the Environment Agency for their support on this very important issue.

    General Secretary of the Pike Anglers Club of Great Britain

    You haven't fished a water full of natural food where you have to wean them off it and onto your bait then. 
    Sometimes the only way to do this is pile in the small stuff with boilies mixed in, and hope they will take the boilies.

    Tip 1  You must use only cold water as to replicate the water temperature of the lake at this time of year, so you must, and I can’t emphasise this to much BE very quick in testing pva solid bags in the bath as you will freeze your  🥶 🌰 🌰
    Tip 2  When testing pva bags in the bath I recommend the use of barbless hooks … just in case for the obvious reasons 😏
    Tip 3 The use of oils when testing  pva bags in the bath is also strongly NOT recommended as in a blink of an eye you could be impaled on one of the taps … or if unlucky both taps  🤔
    Heres a pic of a bag in a kitchen bowl with 2 and 4mm pellets and a bit of ground bait with a small wafter with half a syringe of sticky baits cloudy krill liquid
