  1. Hi guys, thanks for the replys, I will give them a try tomorrow when I get to the lake. Thanks again Speersy
  2. Hi guys, Was after a bit of advice a lake I am fishing is aprox 15 acres mainly silt and weed with a limited amount of gravel around, I want to stay clear of the gravel as everyone fishes to the gravel patches, so my question is if I am markering up in the silt how is the best way to feel for good silt? Should I be looking for something in particular? Thanks in advance Speersy
  3. I was at the Ricoh show on Sunday listening to the guys from free spirit and someone bought up the question about the size of the butt ring and I also spoke to Sonik about the butt ring aswel, and the opinion from both rod manufacturers was that there was very minimal difference between the 40 and 50 mm butt rings, personally I think this has come from Danny Fairbass who is always harping on about having a bigger butt ring but the opinion of the rod makers are completely different it appears
  4. I've just bought the SK4's got them second hand 3 for £210 off ebay they look great and feel great, will be using them next month as I have bought them for long range work.
  5. buy there bait the fish see lots of it compared to other baits 18 inch zigs and regularly fire the boilies over the zig every half hour or so, has worked for me in the past.
  6. good tip for the luncheon meat will keep that in mind thanks
  7. quite a good catch rate on echo pools, but you would expect that if that if there is a lot going in, still nice to know though think I am going to spend a season with there baits next year
  8. thanks for all the feed back guys, think i will consider the T1 for next season as I haven't done to well on the some of the baits i usually use this year, so maybe time for a change in baits
  9. the company is called baitcraft just wondering if anyone had used these before, their seems to be loads of little bait companies popping up never seem to know if they are any good?
  10. have a look on ebay for job lots have seen stuff on there before all korda, gardner and nash stuff worth alook maybe?
  11. Same I swear he rubs his hands together when I walk through the door lol
  12. Hi Guys, was after a bid of advice I am selling my bait boat so I can upgrade my rods, at the minute I am struggling for any feel in my rods when feeling the leads down, so I am looking for some rods which will improve this side of my fishing aswel as some rods which will help me to get a bit of extra distance at the minute I am just about hitting 90 yards and could do with hitting 100 - 120 yards so I can get on to a feature, I am currently using Daiwa 5000 Emblem Pro's for my reels, so I would prefer to have Daiwa rods and reels but if its going to compomise my fishing then I will take other rods into consideration also my budget is £150 per rod. Thanks in advance Speersy
  13. not been for 3 weeks but I know that they hadn't spawned 3 weeks ago.
  14. thats not always true an established bait can also be seen as a dangerous bait if every one and there dog is using it and the fish are getting caught alot on the established bait, I have been at lakes in the past and people come round to me giving it the 'your wasting your time using that bait you need to get on this bait (normally with a smug look on there face) normally mainline' boilies, whilst watching other anglers scratching there heads and wondering why i am catching on an 'alien' bait proved this over many waters
  15. Thanks mate won 2 out of that mag now, thanks for that
