  1. Oh what an anticlimax , I was expecting some deep Elmo type thinking was behind the reasoning . 😞
  2. What part of the country Pazzi ? .
  3. Highy , why as you look like your right handed have you got your landing net on the right , is it something to do with the tree by your rods ? . 🤔
  4. Am I being a plonker , or could a fish take one of the coloured Kickers rather than the boilie ? .
  5. Hmm , I'm a SZ. 6 man , and like you I use a boom section with a Ronnie that I can quickly change . On my next trip out I'm going to try a Cygnet Tackle Kicker - Cygnet have a 5 for 4 offer on their Terminal Tackle . 😃
  6. Oh that's awful , Highy . Get some " me time " , and get out on Friday as you say 😃 . A new job sounds good as well .
  7. What about your Bivvy Pole Screws , Elmo ? . Your work overnighter plan sounds a good balance of your family time , and " me " time , but hard work for an old bloke like me . 😃
  8. Thank goodness the Hobnobs survived 😁 . I wouldn't want to bump into a hungry Elmo in the night , worse than Homer Simpson with no beer 😱 . Oh just an after thought , how's the fishing going ? 🤔.
  9. " managed to get into a few on an early February session. " Like they say up North ( allegedly ? ) - " That'll do " . 😁
  10. Great 'photo , BB . Lovely action rod . What was on the end ? . 😃
  11. I wonder if you will catch a Carp ? , Bluelabel as you know often uses prawns for Carp . Tight lines . 😃
  12. But surely that's multi-tasking 😱 .
  13. Busy 5 days , Highy . " Card n flowers will do " - you sound like a Plusnet advert , but that's a different county , and I don't want to start a rumble . 😁
  14. Aah , I understand what you're saying as I remember suddenly been given permission to go and I was just chucking bits into my fishing bag and sorting it out by the lake . Took me ages to get a bait in the water , and I found it all a bit stressful . I thought Morris Dancing was outdoors? , otherwise you Wife will have bells on your fishing suit . I'm glad you've left 14th February free . 😃
  15. You don't seem too despondent that you're not going , Highy ? . Or are you being a stoical Northerner ? . 😁
  16. Thanks , Nick . 😃 Yes , double hooking , as opposed to my normal apply light pressure to the hook , and the carp is unhooked .
  17. Elmo is the Aristotle of Carp.com , renowned for being a Great Thinker 😁. Shooting off at a tangent , I've decided not to use ESP Trig-hammers as they seem to give mouth damage on the size Carp I catch ( doubles ) ; I wonder if this is the case for most long shank hooks 🤔 ? . 😃

    Dogs and fishing

    Well here's to you , Kev , and Jack and Max having a great 2023 by the waterside . 😃
  19. I'm back again ! . Another suggestion from my Wife - she reminded me that I got fed up waiting for Ipswich Hospital when I needed a prostate operation , so I went to my G.P. and got a referral to another hospital with a much , much shorter waiting list . As long as you have an NHS number you can go anywhere in the country . 😃
  20. My Wife has just said " the one that shouts loudest gets seen soonest " .
  21. Sad to read your health update , Nick , at least your sense of humour is still intact , and you finally know the cause of your pain . A Postie colleague at work has had a hip replacement , and you can't tell the difference between him and the rest of us , only he said he wasn't allowed to give my car a push when I had a flat battery 🙄
  22. Thanks , BB , I'll be looking at more of this chaps reviews . 😃
  23. I was thinking of the 5000 for small waters with Carp up to 20lb .
  24. Hi Everyone . Has anyone got any thoughts / tried one of these reels please ? . 😃
