  1. Hello all hope you had a good Christmas and new year, this is the year I aim to catch my first 30....now iv read different techniques on line tension I just wonder in your opinion what is best, completely slack lines that now from the rod tip or the old school approach of tight lines? thanks for replies

  2. Yeah it is a bowl shaped bottom going from 3ft in the margin going through to about 14ft there are a lot of under water features such as snags and gravel bars, I'm quite new to the specimen fishing scene so all help is welcome ill have a browse through that mate thanks :) happy new year

  3. Now I wouldn't call my self a fair weather fisherman but I seem to have a bad luck spell in the colder months, I really don't know why I blame it on the cold freezing my intellect as my cold weather catch record is less than impressive, I do have however the keenness and motivation to get out there when it is bitter, I was just wondering if any one had any tips for cold weather carping...the lake I fish is mixed depth from around 3ft to around 14ft and fairly even bottomed if that helps :)

  4. Haha! I wish I could have someone to make my baits for me but you need to be really good for that eventuality, I have tried a variety of making them but I do agree they do smell when they are boiling, I just feel like it's more of an accomplishment to catch on something that you've concocted yourself :)

  5. Just bought the cyprinus maxus 2 man bivvy in the sale for 150 and what a bargain...well that's what I think it's my first bivvy and it looks like it is built to last iv had expensive tents in the past an the quality is no where near as good as the bivvy...any thoughts on this bivvy good or bad all welcome :)
