  1. unfortunately thats about it mate - clubs round here seem to be very much based on the match scene. id say by far the best waters are on the warrington and lymm tickets. for the money they are very good value. you could also try prince albert but thats now at 6 year minimum waiting list and is VERY expensive.
  2. if i had a "slapping forehead vigorously" smily, now would be the appropriate time to use it did you take absolutely no notice of the pm i sent you??
  3. theres no excuse not to have a mat mate. they really are essential peices of kit - you can pick them up for as little as a tenner as well. have a look at some of the fish care threads on here, might open your eyes to what things you can do to help preserve the quality of your quarry.....
  4. its vitually impossible to predict weather patterns more than 3-4 weeks in advance, so these predictions are more than subject to change. but i think its nice to believe that the conditions may be starting to change - even if it turns out to be a false dawn.... stu
  5. the bbc monthly outlook for march.... "An unsettled start but the influence of low pressure will ease and as pressure rises we should see a change to much more settled conditions. In spite of a change in conditions, temperatures will remain lower than usual for most but well below average in northern Scotland. Rainfall amounts will vary from below or well below the norm in the southwest of the UK to near or above average in eastern Scotland and the northeast of England." doesnt sound too bad....hopefully the temperatures will be looking up sooner rather than later stu
  6. got powder wars for xmas (not the kind of thing you would expect to get off your mum ) but havent got round to starting it yet. cocky was a good read - a true career criminal at work. he has just been done again for being the brains behind that jersey drug smuggling ring... "costa del crime" was also a good read - the blurb on the front cover says it all....
  7. i have been using korda for a while now and i have never had any problems with them at all?? every one in every pack has always been razor sharp, never bent or snapped?? im tempted to try the fox as everyone seems to recommend.... problem is, if the korda's are performing well with no issues, i havent really got a valid reason to change??
  8. hot off the press...... http://www.korda.co.uk/news/?id=95
  9. Maybe you could do a bit of market research on other “similar” syndicates, see what they charge to fish their water? And how many members they have? Might give you a better idea on price/numbers. Don’t forget, there are people who are prepared to pay good money to get in a decent syndicate, especially one with such quality fish, so I wouldn’t automatically assume that “price x” is too expensive… Also... and this isnt always true... but the more money people have invested in the syndicate, the more likely they are too look after it and respect it (no one wants to pay all that money and then loose their place over litter/unsafe rigs etc)
  10. Hi russell, Not too many decent day tickets up here I'm afraid. Most decent waters are controlled by PAAS, warrington, lymm or SOTAs. Stu
  11. Hi all, Well if there's room for one more, I would definately be up for a weekend social. Be good to put some faces to the user names! And you never know, I might even learn some new things from you all!! I'll keep an eye on this thread for dates an venues... Tight lines (or slack, whichever you may prefer) Stu
  12. Hi guys Let me first say apologies for any bad grammar or spelling in this post - my internet is well And truly goosed and hnce I am using my blackberry for everything at the moment - Very frustrating. My dad dropped the bombshell on me last week that he would like to go to france carp fishing next year. As much as an acomplished angler my dad is he isn't used to whacking a lead 80 yards To the middle of a french carp lake. Now I don't really know much about frnch carping - never been and haven't researched it before, so I'm kind of looking for ideas.... So on that basis I'll be looking for a lake that's not massive in size (prob 8-10 acres max) with a good head of 20's and 30's, and within the brittany or normandy regions. Or no more than 4 or 5 hours from a ferry crossing.... I'm going to have a good scavenge round the french threads to see what I can find but if anyone else has any recommendations then it would be appreciated. Thanks Stu
  13. thanks for the advice dazc, much appreciated. i generally fish particles anyway so hopefully i might have a chance of a reasonable session. its been a long time since i have been up there so il be happy if i can just get a few bites.
  14. Hi guys, has anyone fished Llyn Gweryd recently? And if so how did you get on? Off for a 48 hour this weekend and just wondered if anyone had any info as to how its been fishing.
