  1. Guys im not going to bother with this. Carp.com has just lost its flavour. Im moving on...
  2. OK my last post on this thread. I dont think im the forum police at all. I have an opinion and im allowed to voice it. I didnt think it was right to join a new forum tell us naff all about yourself and ask an immediate question about syndicates. I do post a lot of replies to questions and you have a choice to read them and disregard them or to take the advice and use it in your own situations. Niall to answer your first question there are three syndicates that I know of in OUR area the first is at Clifton Lakes on the edge of Rugby (not my first choice and I wouldnt even bother to suggest it really) the other two are at Stanwicks lakes on the edge of Rushden. You wont get onto the Roman lakes syndicate unless you know someone on there already, despite what it says on the website, youi need to be voted on by all the current members and if one of them black balls you then you wont get on. How do I know that? do the sums. Lenny if you ever met me you would soon realise that I am not a keyboard warrior, but seeing as you dont join in the forum all that often and Ive never seen you at any of the socials then you wouldnt know that would you.
  3. Oh join in then Jason im hitler now am I. Have a read of my post properly and have a think about it before you go gobbing off.
  4. Guys lets not paint me as an ogre, I have already welcomed Niall to the forum. I just don't think its right to ask for syndicate info as a very first post that's all. What's wrong with a bit of a chat first and then ask? If you think im pig headed and harsh then so be it, I don't mind.
  5. James its not harsh at all and if you think it is then you need to read it again. Yes it is a forum and we do share info and learn stuff but to join, tell us nothing about yourself apart from you've just returned do you think you would be a good syndicate member? I wouldn't vote for you to join mine. Join in the questions and answers, take part in the banter,maybe even attend a social get to know us and let us get to know you first. I will ignore your request to jog on, I don't run for anyone...
  6. Oh no doubt there is someone on here that knows the better syndis, but why should we spill the beans to someone we don't know? Your first post and your asking for info that only goes out to trusted members and even then it will be by pm.
  7. I was watching the free dvd that was stuck on the front of the fishtec catalogue and watched marc Coulson tie up some solid bags. He had green sticks in all his pre tied bags. I normally use a short length of lead core leader about 8 inches (I take the lead bit out first) but these sticks save all that hassle. I went to Banks and Burrs and found them under the Avid stuff. I can now tie up at least 15 pre tied bags which is great for the day ticket venues I normally travel to. My point being that I saw it and decided to give it a go. If they help me land a few more fish then great. Dont knock the advice you get from articles, sometimes it helps.
  8. Keep your pellets dry, oil up small amounts as you need them.
  9. I suggest wychwood 75s then. Welcome to the forum.
  10. Borrow a couple of four year olds and arm them with a small brightly coloured net on a bamboo stick and tell them they will get some sweeties if they collect more snails than the other one. Whilst your sitting back watching them hunt snails you can fill in all the health and safety forms required for water activities and sharp bamboo splinters. Failing that have a look at CCMoore or pallatrax websites and buy some.
  11. Hi Noob (have you got a real name?) I always put a splash of ground nut oil (peanut oil) into my bags of boilies before I leave for a day session. The oil wont soak into shelf life boilies very much as they seem to have a tougher skin, but it will leave a nice slick on the surface which means that there is oil droplets rising up in the water column. In the good old days I used to get really excited when a flat spot appeared above my hemp and corn bairted spots as it meant there was a wicked big fish mooching around. Oh the tension, no need for alarms..... Hemp oil is expensive, supermarkets do ground nut oil in 500ml bottles for a couple of quid.
  12. Sweets or a dinner. Sweets everytime for me no matter how hungry my body is.
  13. Well there is no night fishing at this place, and he seems to show up in the afternoon and catch, so he isnt really there for a huge length of time. He always chooses a different location to us so its hard to watch him unless we get there first of course. I didnt say anything about night fishing. Of course hes going to choose a different location to you if your there first. But if hes there already then choose a spot where you can see what hes up to from a distance. You dont have to be sat in the very next peg or smack opposite in order to get sight of how often he is casting etc.
  14. What new trend is doing the rounds now then Mr Devon? Is it still the slack line small bobbin or have we gone full circle back to the tight lines direct to a heavy lead? The OP posted about using inline leads in SOLID bags it was not a direct advert for Kordas Solidz (renamed and rebranded) version of a solid bag. Whatever caused you to have a rant must have struck a Kord (see what I did there). I always fish with a freelined par boiled potato because I dont want to be a moron.
  15. I doubt there are any sturgeon in there TBH. I know there is a catfish because its the same one I see come out to Carp anglers boilies every summer approx 25lbs and has a face full of scars and hooklengths to clear when it comes out.
  16. Dunno, I doubt it. You can always take a cool box of your own I spose.
  17. I prefer to use barbed hooks unless the rules state barbless of course.

    Get hold of some of the dave thomas locslide floats. I use my own version (based on his) all the time when im Bream fishing at distance but using my 2.5 TC carp rods.
  19. If he is down there when you are then simply watch what he is doing from a distance. If he is casting out a spod or a small spomb then you will know how often and roughly where too, far out, close in etc. If he is casting out only once or twice a day he might have a PVA bag set up with a few baits in. Does he catapault out a load of boilies or does he use a throwing stick etc. All these things will give you a clue to how he is catching. Use the clues and find your own baits and tactics, as Cheesy has already said he would have done a lot of work getting it right so blatantly asking him will lead to none or even worse false answers. Having a good walk around prior to fishing and looking for signs of fish activity will be a big start.
  20. Went today and had 3 carp, biggest 21lb. All on simple Boilie rigs with less than a kilo of bait all day. Best thing was I could get cold cans of pop when it was hot.
  21. Are you allowed guests on this club water?
  22. google doesnt gind? TBH you would be better off doing a search on the interweb for a company that sells Tigernut flour.
