  1. I have a reaper , can't tell you how long the AA batteries last but can't remember thinking they needed changing to often , I think you can buy 24 Duracell + for around £8 on ebay I would be interested to hear how you get on with it , have you used it yet ?
  2. Fantastic session BC well done
  3. Well just back from a 48 hr session armed with 4 gallons of maggots between me and my mate , by 6 o'clock Friday I had a 17 mirror and a 31 common on the bank in the night Pete lost one and landed a 15 lb pike that proceeded to try and eat the landing net and anything else that got near her . Saturday morning produced 15 and 25 lb commons for Pete . From loosing count of how many fish we saw rolling and crashing the lake seemed to switch off Saturday lunchtime and Sadly we caught no more after a cracking start , but very happy with the 31 as it up's my PB by a lb
  4. Possibly the hair was a bit long , but I feel that you were being plagued by small stuff just knocking the feeder around . It sounds like larger baits may be the way to go staying clear of small particles
  5. It sounds like there a lot of tiny fish about , some would say 4" is to long for the rig length , What were you using as bait ? How big was the hook ? And how long was the hair ?
  6. Yes , well put Dal . For me the quick link is great , it's very rare that I fish the same bait and rig for a whole session on all rods and it makes it so easy to change over
  7. I've used quick links for years now
  8. Hi , I'm guessing you didn't like Theale because you didn't catch , at £11 / day it represents good value around here ( Reading )for the fish it contains . I don't think you will find many places under a tenner and if you do they will be awful little places that you wouldn't want to fish. There is a place at Aldermaston called Court Farm 3 lakes to chose from and you should get a bend in the rod . From what you said be careful where you chose to fish because you will only get fed up when you blank , I fish the Island lake at Theale and its one of those places on paper that looks easy enough but isn't . Believe me your not the first to leave there dissapointed . If you can find somewhere that you like and can catch at stick with it for a while , build up your skills . Catching bigger fish can be more rewarding but as you are finding out it's harder and can get realy expensive per fish caught . Good luck.
  9. Average time a West Ham fan takes to tie their shoe laces ?
  10. Well done Miltz , good luck tomorrow.
  11. Some nice fish so far , well done lads . I'm off for my first over nighter on Friday ( 48 hrs )since last November hopes are high as per usual .
  12. The principle may be the same but if the main line breaks on a running rig the lead should be able to come off the line and all that I have ever read says the lead should be able to become free of the main line in the event of a break . Not sure chancing the fish can use the lead to get rid of the hook is a good plan .
  13. Surely if the main line breaks the fish will be towing the lead around , is that not bad?
  14. On the telly now BBC 2 if anyone's interested . Spurs v Coventry 1987 cup final highlights
