  1. i've seen the South West lakes trust rip out loads of overhanging trees like this. i agree that some snags can be dangerous if accessible to 'inexperienced' (or shameless) anglers, and it is for the greater good. However, some overhanging trees like that look horrendous from above, but are quite clear below, and vise versa.
  2. It's not unusual, Sticky baits did very similar, and also the same with Mainline. Prey on peoples Ego's, make them think they are special, sell them an OK bait at a price they still make a profit at, and every one wins right? With the solar deal you have to order a minimum 20kg, at £5 a kilo....£5 a kilo for an unproven bait? I would rather spend £5 a kilo on one of the many many other time proven baits out there.
  3. Lets not start the 'what is a field tester' debate
  4. Only after you have finished the bottle of mulled wine.
  5. My freezer contains 14mm and 24mm baits. I can pelt a 24 much further with a stick than a 14. Sometimes I use a 14mm hookbait fished over 24's. Does it catch more fish? probably not. Does it make me feel like I'm a pioneer breaking away from the croud? Damn right!
  6. they sell it at £12+ a bottle! Of course they rave about it, it's buying them all new Rangerovers.
  7. I've always made it with boiling lake water, ball it up whilst mega hot, either real fast, or with gloves on, it dries to a ball with a hard skin within a few mins. They can be chucked miles.
  8. I don't understand how people are using palomar knots with bristle, especially the ESP stuff, that knot must be collosal! Especially when a two turn blood knot will do the same. OP go for mouth trap, it's much better than the esp stuff IMO.
  9. It's just much much neater, probably stronger too. And if you are using it on a helocopter or similar rig, it's much safer as no knots for anything to pass over.
  10. JRC stealth mk2 for me. fox supa brollies are great, If you get one that doesn't leak.
  11. I've been using the NGT lead free leader. I find it far more supple, and just superior in every way to any leadcore I have used.......except for splicing, it's a right pain. the best needle I have found is the korda splicing, or purple needle. I have broken loads! I alway make up leaders at home, and wouldn't dream of trying on the bank! I splice 2 to 3 inches, simple as that, no glue, no stitches, and it holds great.
  12. Looks like it probably makes for good eating?
  13. Same goes for not jumping up out the water.
