  1. A rummage through my tackle box,has revealed 16 packets of hooks. Just in case!
  2. Fluorocarbon "D" rig fished with a wafter,hook flat on the deck, with the bait hovering over the hook, Second choice is old school long hair rig. So far this year I have had 3 fish on each, so i am none the wiser.
  3. My partner enjoys coming along,but the extra preparation, has to be seen to be believed. Spare shoe's,spare shoe's to replace the spare shoe's, bowls to wash in,bowls to wash up in,mirror's for hair repair,(she didnt believe i didnt normally carry one)!! Breakfast up the cafe,is usually lunch by the time she is ready. Wouldn't change her for a PB though!
  4. I hope he can make this work,at least he is trying to do something. Does anyone fancy being a MP for carp fishing,Apparently, you can fiddle you're expenses without worrying too much about getting caught.
  5. Human nature when it's eyes' on the prize. I think,if you are unlucky enough,to have to fish day ticket waters' then you are going to run into a large cross section of the "general public", who perhaps,bring their street behaviour to the bankside. So glad I don't fish day ticket waters anymore.
  6. weather man put me off,third week running. I must be getting old/
  7. Sea trout...12ozs(sorry mate,didnt know it was private,yeah i put it back) Bream.....11.8 Roach.......2.0 Rudd.........tiny Perch........1.10 Crucian.....2.1 Eel.........About 3 Common...35.8 mirror......39.8 Barbel.......6.1 Chub.........4.2 Dace........12ozs Mullet.......2.8..(total lunatic) Mackerel...about a pound....My Mum ate it. Best fish...23.8 mirror,classic looking fish,textbook capture
  8. Much prefer to have my 2 rods on single sticks,if i have the chance too use a third,it's tucked away in the margins. If it doesn't recieve any attention,chuck towards the next swim,that should get a reaction.
  9. That brings back memories,rod tied to the handlebars of a pimped up pushbike, a couple of carrier bags on the handlebars,and away you went for a day in the country. We were proper mobile anglers then.
  10. Grangemilkys last sentence is the one that has been on my mind for some time. If you find evidence of otters,no need to make a song and dance about it,deal with it quietly. I am lucky enough to fish for some big carp on the lakes near home,I don't think the members there are going to see them destroyed one by one.
  11. Welcome. Furnace lakes, the long lake near the house,swim 49, lovely patch of gravel in the edge,to the left
  12. Welcome back mate. I don't know anything about leicester,is the cheese really red?
  13. It would be nice too have that option,but in my case,all the waters I fish are two rods only. Maybe just as well,as they can get busy,and not everyone will be chucking the third rod in the margin.
  14. Luckily,I havn't had an accident since I took a corner too fast at St johns with a fully laden barrow.
  15. Welcome to the forum Have a good read through the threads on here,you will soon be as confused as the rest of us.
