  1. Probably n-trap onto a krank hook.
  2. Todd, have you been on their f.b page? https://www.facebook.com/MillfieldPool lots of info there, seems they stock urban baits and choddies or hinged stif rigs are working well.
  3. Have a look through this thread pat. http://www.carp.com/topic/10938-norfolk-waters/
  4. Esp 12 bore Green - Available in 2.5 metre lengths in 2.0mm diameter - Produced to the same technical specifications as E-S-P Sink and Anchor Rig Tubes but with a larger bore of 0.9mm. - Designed to accept E-S-P Tapered Leaders and other heavy monos whilst retaining optimum line protection and super sinking properties.
  5. Here are a few of mine 1/ flourocarcabon leader 20lb approx 1m long, size 8 kwik klip, buffer sleeve, avid chod sleeve with big eye quick change swivel. 2/ Pretty much as above but on 20 lb leadcore 3/ standard inline lead, can be used for solid bags 4/ inline dropoff, note the big eye on the hooklength ( cut from a swivel ) this makes the rig safer allowing only the hooklength to stay in the fish in the event of a breakage. 5/ chod dropoff, sorry cropped the loop of the bottom of the pic, basically you put on the lead, then push the needle down the sleeve, pull the short loop through and put in a trimmed pva nugget, this will take the brunt of the cast/retrieve but if snagged pull away dropping the lead.
  6. I don't do light leads anymore , nothing under 3 oz now, just seemed to get done more on lighter ones last season. I do like running rigs but the lead needs to be like an anchor hence the heaver weight. Had fish kite a long way before indication before, probably dragging the lead rather than pulling through it. If it's your first fish on that setup it's not conclusive why the hook slipped, or even if there was an issue with the mechanics at all, make one change at a time is all i'll advise. starting with a big old lead
  7. You've never bought cheap nasty bait from ebay then
  8. Re; washed out If it's such an edge then why don't manufacturers make them this colour to start with ? Seems the paler boilies like tiger nut, cell, etc will wash out, but have many of us have caught in the first few hours of arrival with a bait straight out of the bag ? so not even remotely washed out. I think we are given these fish too much credit for being smarter than we think, after all they are pigs with fins Anyway i have some red fishmeal boilies that would'nt wash out if i bathed with them for a whole year So really the best bait colour to use should be white, yes? sales of nash amber will rocket now
  9. Albright knot for me, although a back to back uni can work, i find it awkward to get the length right though.
  10. 12.50 for 24 hrs but they do and evening ticket too 12hrs 6.50. A c&p from their page;; Richmond Lakes- The Front Lake The front lake is approximately 18 acres with just 11 swims, ensuring you will have plenty to go at from whichever swim you choose. Containing around 450 English born and bred Carp, 100 of which exceed 20lb and 30 over 25lbs, the largest resident being the big common at 37lb with several other back up 30s. The depth of the lake ranges from 6ft to 12ft and there are several bars and plateaus to fish to. Boilie approaches are the favoured method fished to clear areas in the weed with scatterings of boilies around the area. Large beds of particle will also produce fish however it may take longer to get the fish into the area. The Back Lake The back lake is situated North of the main lake, the lake is around 16 acres with plenty of swims which are around the perimiter of the lake along with several swims on the main island in the centre of the lake. There are approximately 600 Engligh born and bred Carp present approaching 30lbs with plenty of doubles and 20lb+ fish. The fish respond well to most methods and several fish can be caught in a session.
