  1. the bit where he said no float, he just cast it out, an educated guess would lead me to believe he was freelining on the surface,
  2. And that will float As aboce really tear off a section and fold it around the shank, leaving the edges fluffy. A little tip for you as you sound new to fishing on the surface. Get them feeding confidently for a wile then overcast the bread and slowly reel it into position of the feeding fish. Also just wait a few sec when the fish takes the bread as so many people strike a tad early and can pull the hook out of the carps mouth.
  3. In theory what your saying yes, but most line will give a little, obviously braid has no stretch so is more prone to cracking off when casting. When using the line clip, you will have a general idea of when you are going to be hitting the clip or your spod is nearing the spot to where it needs to land. What i then do is slighlt feather the cast (on occasions) but mainly i just slightly raise the rod to my side bringing it back past me and then allowing the rod to take the force and slighlty allow the rod to come forward of me. So basically the rods action and allowing the rod to follow through slightly is stopping the line HITTING the clip as you said. It also enables the spod to hit the water with less disturbance. I think thats what i do, as you do it without thinking. Im sure a much more experienced anglew with explain alot better
  4. Ok i aint got a clue on how large a water is in size (acres) but i my runs waters are small atleast i think they are. Possibly 2 acres is a really small puddle and your right. But i find even when fishing ontop on my runs waters a 2nd rod on an alarm is not a problem.
  5. Ok so fishing on top and having a 2nd rod in the margin your saying is a hinderance? WoW thats where i have been going wrong.. Too many rods all these years...
  6. why is 1 rod not an option?? Why would you want to fish one? when you can double your chances by placing the 2nd rod in the margin or out of the way of the other rod? only a blinkered bivvy dweller that only has one string to their bow would say that Well why not say why dont you do stalking ?

  8. Had it happen this season on a runs water, all 3 on at once, luckily had a mate there and landed all three. Cast all three bk out and within 15mins had 2 on at the same time straigh after. Runs water FTW
  9. there is no wonder bait that attracts larger carp. Your mix sounds gd to me, similar to mine but i use also sweetcorn and use 2-3 different types of pellets that give different break down rates. When spodding i will fish 2 of my rods on it, one will be very close and the other a distance from the area. The one that sits away from the spod mix usually produces the larger fish.
  10. vinyljunkie check your pms fella
  11. i have 2 answers, both for different situations. If i am fishing my syndicate water which is not a runs water and holds large fish. Then i prefer to fish on my own, wether there are alot of anglers there or not. Its just i am more dedicated! If however i am fishing a runs water then i like to fish with mates, as i am not going to get much sleep and can have the crack with my mates also, and i dont need to be too dedicated and precise etc as its a runs water. As for your question i would deffo fish, if your on the bank you have a CHANCE of catching if your not there then you have no chance. If i was you i would fish 2 in the margins with small pva bags and one mid water with a small bed of boilies around it, scattered well.
  12. Yeah i thought the same Beanz, the mouth and the head is quite small also. Very easy fish to identify with the split fin though. Just wondering if there were two of you how come you had no pictures of you holding them
  13. i know what your talking about, your probably getting the mixture passing the disc that pushes it out. So all you need to do is take the one that is on there off, replace with one of exact size. Then it should work a treat
  14. Some cracking fish there mate, look in prestine condition. However, to show the fish properly and get some better pictures try using a camera with a slef timer or get an air bubble for cameras so you can do self takes Then the pictures will look alot better. But top angling all the same
  15. i have used both and both are fine, if your not fishing a snaggy or weedy water then no need to worry about the lead seperating. If however you are then i go for trimming the clip down, then wetting the rubber before placing it on.
