  1. Hi Everyone At my lake there's a gravel ( ? ) bar that runs from one set of Lilies to another . So would the Carp follow the top of the bar ( assuming they felt the need to travel from one set of lilies to the other ) , or the bottom of the bar where presumably natural food ( plus some boilies ) have gathered ? . Ta ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  2. You're all quite , quite mad enjoying the wild weather when you could be nice and dry and warm at home like me ; but do you think that's why I don't catch much ? -doh ! . ๐Ÿ™„
  3. Well rather you than me , jh92 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ , to me that's just a huge sheet of water ; BUT you are smashing it , staying positive , and enjoying yourself . Long may it continue . ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  4. I'm sure the Carp Gods will reward you for being such a good Dad , Finchey ( ๐Ÿ˜‡ ) .
  5. Hello Everyone I have a Korum Supa Lite Fast Mat , but recently I have caught a couple of Carp edging towards the 20lb mark , and as it's possible that the waters I fish may produce a 30lber . So do I upgrade to a Fast Mat XL , or something else ? . Ta ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  6. It may have been Nick that said something like " fish only need enough water to cover their backs ? " .
  7. Hi Newmarket I wonder if the 30 who don't fish are waiting for those 10-14lb Carp to grow into 20s , and then memberships may become hard to come by . ๐Ÿค”
  8. I used to just go floater fishing armed just with a bag , rod , mat and landing net ; only taking a seat and ledger rod if the weather looked as though nothing could be tempted on the surface . However getting older with a manual job sometimes I just want to plonk myself down in a swim , and set up shop . So am I enjoying my fishing more these days ๐Ÿค” .
  9. Thank you for your beautiful post , Barry . I find that as I get older I'm getting grumpier , and too quick to jump to the wrong conclusions ๐Ÿ˜” . I would like to think even I would have worked out what was happening , and now your timely post has given me a kick up the bum to put my brain in gear . ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  10. Have you been to the Doctors ,because I know it sounds daft , but I'm sure I've heard of someone having a bit of coral growing in their ear ? . West Ham were robbed ! . ๐Ÿคฌ
  11. Excellent stuff , the both of you . I wonder which gives you the most satisfaction , TJ enjoying himself , or you catching a " monster " ? . ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  12. Scuba Diving in Egypt , get you ! ; who would have thought a roughty , tufty , old Iron would rise to such dizzying heights . ๐Ÿ˜
  13. That Carp looks in pristine condition , and you don't look too bad yourself ,Elmo . ๐Ÿ˜
  14. Strewth , when you shop , you shop , Beetroot ! . If this was all in 1 shop I hope they gave you a decent discount , or at least made you their Bestie ? . ๐Ÿ˜
  15. Hello B33Troot What an epic first post ! . I'm looking forward to following your journey , and who knows I may even be able to answer a question or two if / when you have them . ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  16. So do both your lads look like you Ouch , or is it just me ? . ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  17. Your Wife's favourite hair clip ๐Ÿ˜ฒ , you've either lost the plot , or you've got huge cajones . ๐Ÿ˜
  18. A 50lb Carp in Suffolk ! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  19. So how deep into Essex did you have to go to catch that beauty , Blue. ? . ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  20. Like the way you have backlight the Carpโ€™s tail , Highy . ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  21. Aah , itโ€™s not just me then . I think it would be helpful if you played a lot of computer games with a joystick ; I have found that small movements on the joystick give better results . There is a button that changes the โ€œ trim โ€œ , or is it the โ€œ yawl โ€œ ? . ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  22. No ! . The Zombie Sheep have bitten Ouch. , look at his eyes ! . ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
  23. Well done Nick , a double whammy - a new P.B. , and the Otters haven't decimated that stretch of the River ; are you still on the River , Nick ? . I noticed the other day that there's a Facebook group " Save The Gipping " , maybe you are on there already ? . ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
