  1. Which ones do you have Elmo ? I think the underlit ones are triffic .
  2. There’s quite a few well known anglers that have posted on here over the years . Jim Shelley , Keith Moors and Richard Gardner to name just 3 . You could also add Nige Woodcock and , er , Carpmachine to that list as well 🤣
  3. That’s a shame as some of those very old threads contained invaluable info that I’ve referred back to over the years .
  4. Well the truth is as soon as I agreed to take him again next Sunday he asked Alexa about that days weather….and you should have seen the face on it 🙄 thanks fellas . Any more and all suggestions welcome 😉
  5. Remember when many of us first started out fishing and we had a Brolly ? Now I don’t mean a modern carp fishing brolly system that we’d get nowadays, I’m just talking about a traditional fishing umbrella. If memory serves , back I’m my day a 45 inch one was huge . Can anybody recommend the modern day equivalent but maybe a little bit bigger ? It’s for my little un. The wuss doesn’t wanna fish if it rains . I still don’t wanna pay fortunes for it though as I’m tight like that 🤣
  6. Bespoke recycled Carp materials . Has to be a few quid in that I should think …
  7. Ridiculous situation isn’t it Elmo ? Essex Angling in Grays Essex . They won’t get any of my business. I always supported my local tackle shop wherever I’ve lived but unless I’m in a shops vicinity by chance I’ll be getting everything online in future.
  8. Teach proper mate , that’s what I say lol. I haven’t got a problem with kids going straight into Carp fishing . I don’t agree with it as such but everyone to their own My beef is with tackle shops that don’t want their business unless they are spending hundreds of quid on shiny Korda and Nash gear . My boy will be mastering the basics before I even let him near a reel .
  9. Really ? Cos I can’t find anything on their website ? Besides mail order maggots ? He didn’t decide he wanted to go till yesterday 🙄
  10. Had my first session of the year a couple of weekends ago . Nothing of any size to report but I took a couple of cradle pics of the nicer ones .
  11. Popped into a tackle shop to get some Maggots today and a couple of pole rigs . taking my boy to my nearest commie tomorrow for a few hours . I had to go to Romford to get em though My local tackle shop doesn’t sell Maggots , no demand for them apparently 🤦🏼‍♂️. I think it’s disgusting that these snobby cliquey Carp shops are not giving normal coarse anglers , beginners in particular, the chance to fish for tiddlers and do their apprenticeship in the way most of us did . No call for ‘em my arsenal ! 🤬 Oh and while I was in there I picked up some (gulp) Korda Ronnie booms , ESP braid versions of the same and a Korda naked Chod system set up . The fella that’s been making my Combi and Multi Rigs for me has also just received my specs for some Spinner rigs too . He’s very good which is just as well as my Arthritis would otherwise have me Whip fishing with Junior .
  12. I’m not a pike fisherman at all so I would never dream of teaching your Grandmother to suck eggs Rick . this link will help you decide I reckon . https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/enjoy-the-waterways/fishing/blogs-articles-and-news/the-fisheries-and-angling-team/summer-pike-fishing#:~:text=In general terms%2C the pike,fishing season on 14 March. Some people may , by the way , question whether warmer weather piking is morally correct anyway. The Pike Anglers Club might be another place to ask your question, my thinking is spinning sounds fun and there’s always the chance of a decent Carp getting sucked in as well 😉
  13. Hello Nick . Been reading through this thread again and i have a couple of noddy questions to ask you … How exactly do you mould a pva bag ( that has your rig inside it) around the lead ? when you say you ensure the pop up only just sinks , do you just trim the pop up down to get this or is it by other means ? Im possibly looking to go down this route myself in the near future ( for reasons I’ll be explaining in another thread) .
