    Well I’m in 😄
    just got to get the cash and a couple of passport type photos by tomorrow morning and I’m sorted 🙄.
    Dunno why but I thought I’d be able to pay by bank transfer…. Still I’m going to have to get my butt over there first thing tomorrow as I’m working afterwards and can’t chance them holding the offer open to next weekend, I wouldn’t .
    Anyway it’s right up my street , 4 acres , next to no weed but plenty of features and very rarely more than 5 anglers on at any one time . Even less doing overnighters .
    known Carp to over 30 and 4 more between 25-29 stocked last year that haven’t been out yet .
    A few silly rules admittedly such as having to use their nets and cradles and a Barbless only rule but apart from that the rules are mostly sensible with the fish being their top priority so mustn’t grumble 
    strictly no u18’s even supervised so that won’t please my young un which is sad but you can drive literally up to the banks which is quality . 
    There is a freezer full of bait over there at £7 a kilo if I was that way inclined but I won’t be as I have an irrational hatred of the company. I won’t mention the name as the owner of said bait company is a member though I believe he is unwell at the moment .
    All in all I can’t wait to get cracking and planning a 48hr sesh in two weekends time 
    Happy days .

    Sadly @newmarket might be on the receiving end of this one, but on my Sonik Vader Spod/Marker Hybrid rod I'm now 3 popped rod rings where the liner has come out of the ring. Thank goodness I leave it set up so I could push them back into place, and give a dash of Araldite.
     
    I'll add this onto his Marker rod thread

    salokcinnodrog got a reaction from newmarket in Day/guest chair   
    My sciatica is not so bad after sitting in mine, although I do have a slight gripe that is down to the extending legs.
     
    If you lean forward, putting weight on the extended  front legs, they slide back in. I haven't noticed it on the back legs as every swim has so far been sloping down forwards or flat.
    When it is flat, it is a very comfortable chair that I have fallen asleep in a few times. I can sit and watch the water or read in no problems. It is fact more comfortable than the sofa...

    Well the exclusive lake we had booked at woolpack ,has started spawning 🙈. As we were here, we ended up on one of the syndicate lakes instead of a refund,  so only just got the rods out & sorted. 🤞

    A few weeks ago I made a few enquiries to some local syndicate lakes , thinking you’ve got to be in it to win it .
    Silence … not a sausage . Then out of the blue got an email and a phone call .
    Im meeting the fella early tomorrow morning and he’s taking me for a walk round the lake & facilities .

    I know this is an old thread, but worth bringing back up again regarding gas canisters.
    I am positive I've made the point in the past about camping and caravan stores being cheaper than tackle shops.
    This week I came back via my local George Sharman Camping and Caravan and decided to grab a couple of GoSysten canisters as I was passing.
    £5.50 each compared to £5.99 or £6.99 in a couple of my local tackle shops.
    ✅ 
    Right for the anal out there, a list of canisters I have used and I think the best to worst, these are all Propane/butane/iso-butane.
    Primus and GoSystem. They both will run until empty with no need to shake or warm. In winter they are my preference
    Sunn Gas, I hadn't seen these anywhere except one of my local tackle shops, it did require a shake but worked until empty.
    CADAC, will work, but in winter may need tipping on its side to completely empty.
    Coleman, the premium name, yet the worst gas canister. Even in summer they need shaking or tipping on their side to empty. In winter they need heating up before you can get a decent burn out of them, even at almost new.

    salokcinnodrog got a reaction from levigsp in How much rest after spawning?   
    Thing this year, the temperatures and weather across the country have been so different from area to area. 
    North of the country had the warm dry weather for a while, while East of East Anglia was cold and wet.
    Yet the Midlands was warm and wet, and a few lakes made it to temperature.
    As @levigsp has pointed out in the past though, if new males are stocked, as soon as it gets warm enough all the fish go for it, even if its only for a morning.
     
    That's a difficulty in itself as only 1 of the big fish has a known weight, and although seen, she hasn't been caught in the last 12months. A couple of the biggies are known males, and there are only 105 known fish in 45acres, with numbers of uncaught fish.
    One fish came out last night, which is possibly 5lb down, I've yet to see the pics, but it was a common and there are only 4 known commons in the lake, but none are known to be high doubles, they are mucho bigger!

    The fish I've seen in 2 syndicate lakes are showing zero signs of spawning IMO, yet one was closed whilst I was there, which is annoying, fish simply following a new wind and mouthing fluff off the surface have either spawned already or are not even close to it - yet some wise guy says they are gathering!?!?  We disagreed!
    Moved on to another lake and found fish slowly moving around the snags - again spawned already or not interested.  If you're gonna make a call to close - try to get it right, the last week has been far too cold IMO and that's obvious.
    If you get a week of near 20 degrees and night time temps in double figures and see decent fish splashing about close then, not early because a couple of pasties have gone for it, what does that achieve - nothing at all!

    You cannot know until one of the known fish gets caught down in weight.

    So the lazy days of summer are almost upon us.
    As I get older I find my craving for long hard slogging sessions on very quiet waters fast diminishing.
    However my love for quiet waters is still there, just I prefer to do it in a more sensible comfortable way.
    spending dawn to dusk surrounded by nature and not seeing another human suits me down to my very soul.

    As for the roof box I got quite lucky my neighbour was taking her kids on hols and had hired a roof box, I just phoned the guy and discussed what size I would need, and he happened to have a large one they use for skiing fits skis I think it's a thule (alpine) also, and checked the length was OK, 
    I am buzzing tbh, can't wait just got to sort out all the details now like insurance, car stuff, passports, Channel crossing you know thr boring stuff 😂

    Not so much a purchase more an acquisition, my father-in-law donated a couple of packs of the Korda ‘safe zone’ anti-tangle sleeves when he came over yesterday.

    I could go on a rant about how the Scratch Team are evil, but I would probably break whatever character limit carp.com has for a post. for example, their discrimination against groups of people that don't align with their beliefs... I am going to stop myself so I don't sit here and type till the end of the week. The point is, carp.com mods don't do this and that's why they're cool. 😺
