  4. Hi Dave i dont think you would go far wrong joining the Hull and district angling association. Lots of venues for all angling abilities and a very reasonable fee too https://www.hdaafishing.co.uk/ There is al;so a water in North cave called five acre lake https://www.fiveacrelake.co.uk/ you could look at although not an easy water. Gaz
  5. Something in the back of my mind tellsme that there used to be washers provided with new reels. Depending how many washers were used would determing wether the line laid towrds the front of the sp[ool, rear of the spool or even across the spool. The washers may already be placed on the spindle under the spool. If you bought the reels new did you get any info/instructions to look at. Gaz
  6. Wecome aboured fella. Sorry i cant help with your venue questions. Gaz
  7. I agree commonly i find it quite hard talking about my feelings to very close loved ones, but i find it much easier talking to somebody that doesnt know me. Please guys dont take it personnaly if people dont talk directly to you i know myself how hard it is sometimes I think as long as you can talk to somebody wether loved ones or strangers will certainly help. Gaz
  8. So sorry to hear of the losses some of you lads have had and the suffering some of the others have been through and are going through. It is really great you all feel ok to air your feelings and anxietys on here, it is not an easy thing to do it is really heart warming. Much respect to you all 👍 Gaz
  9. if you have room just clip up the rod at the desired distance then put a temporary lead on the spod rod, take both rods and plug the leads in the ground (stand on them ) open the bale arms and walk backwards until you hit the clip then clip up the spod rod, allow a little less length on the spod rod depending on depth of water wind both rods back up and replace the lead with the spod and they are both then at the correct distance. You obviously need enough clear room to use this method. Gaz
  10. RG Baits vitalac is a cracking bait http://www.rgbaits.co.uk/shop/carp-fishing-freezer-baits-boilies/vita-lac-freezer-baits/ Gaz
  11. I fealt the same a couple of years back mainly due to stresses at home. As i found i didnt have much time to relax and fish properly i bought a stalking rod and started doing just a few hour early morning or late evening. I found i really enjoyed it and im still finding my feet with the method as ive always sat behind rods overnight. I have also found im working harder at watercraft and finding fish and my catch rate has gone up, and now i find im turning overnighters down when i have to do them, and if i do one i find im getting inpatient sat waiting 😨. Maybe give it a go i found it worked great for me. Gaz
  12. I dont your location but up here in the north there is a yorkshire carp trader/swaps group on facebook. Maybe there is something similar in your area its worth a look. Gaz
  13. Welcome abourd mate i look forward to seeing some pics and catch reports if you have time. Gaz
  14. Thanks very much for your input guys a bit to think about now. I ike the sound of the rig morale braided tubing ill give that a look over. Gaz
  15. Ive not used any rig tubing now for the last 10+ years and dont have even have any in my tackle box, prefering to use leadcore or more recentley lead free leaders. I am fishing a water next month that doesnt allow leaders of any kind. Im looking for a supple heavy sinking tube preferably with various colours not just one solid colour. Any recomendations guys. Thanks Gary
  16. I havnt fished the place myself but the lads at RG Baits seem to do very well on there it could be worth trying to contact them for some info http://www.rgbaits.co.uk/ Gaz
  17. Nice one the look on your face says it all well done fella Gaz
  18. Wow that is a very hard question to answer. I see it is completely down to the individual on what they want to catch from each venue. I do suppose there is the chance of getting completely fixated by one or 2 fish and becoming obsessed with catching them, but i dint see that as trying too hard its obsessive. I think life is too short to really get hung up by 1 or 2 fish but thats just my feeling there are many an angler that has lived on a water for that 1 bite a year. Gaz
  19. You would need a heavy lead for it not to move at all, a lighter lead would be picked up and slide back up the line a little on the take giving what would sound like a single toner on the alarm. I nearly always fish running rigs with various size leads and it does give better bite indication in my opinion. You still need a bobbin swinger etc to keep the line that bit taught over the alarm for it to register better.
  20. I had a day session at a well stocked local farm pond and had a couple of fish on the 23rd Dec . The first was about 12-13lb taken on a 2 foot zig in approx 4 foot of water, no pic and the second was 17lb 8oz taken on an 18 inch zig in the same area.
  21. Here's an interesting thing when weighing fish too. How many of you use weigh bars ??
  22. If its any use to you i have previously put pellets and boillies ( Seperate times ) in buckets to soak up the hemp oils and water to only find that the boillies and pellets took too much moisture out of the hemp and most of it ended up floating on the top instead of sinking to the bottom. Try to keep iot moist is my suggestion. Gaz
  23. Hi mate all the info is on here http://www.ericswillows.com/ it says it went day ticket in 2013 i cant believe its that far back how time flies Gaz
  24. Hi pal erics willows is no longer syndicate its now day ticket. There is a one off registration fee then pay as you fish. Its £30 per 24 hours over the weekend and £25 through the week. Gaz
