  1. Hi, we got an email about the rules, I didnt think it was that bad tbh. What sizes are in there please? And yeah I've read from other places that cheese has done well thanks. It's not really a fishing holiday just a general holiday but it co insides with fishing so I'll give it a go. Cheers Raph

  2. Just got back only fished it once was too expensive and was fully booked as I didn't know you had to book didn't find Tom too helpful at time fished places around the IOW which were miles better. Few people did well some 30s and late 20s but fish were usually battered or had soures or cuts on them

  3. Recasting more than often or leaving the rods out too long I see people recasting every hour on a hard carp lake and some that leave them out for 24hrs + and choosing your swim based on how it had been fishing, choose swim on fish showing, wind direction, features etc

  4. I marked my fishing equipment with a uv pen and registering them on www.immobilise.com. So in the off chance they are found by the police or you see them on the internet or whatever you have a good chance of getting them returned you can get the uv pen and info from your nearest police station. Hope this helps

  5. I bought a rod of dragon carp for a £10 for a spare 2.75lb test curve and I wasn't too optimistic but I have caught many fish on it including my pb of over 20lb with no problem, yes its not the best like a bit 'whippy' when casting but for what I need it for it perfect and have bought some accessories from there and is spot on, so if any one is just starting up or looking to get some gear on the cheap then I highly recommend it!

    Anyone else got any bargains worth shouting about?

  6. Hi the best chances of catching at rainbow are to use surface baits when it's sunny, or I know the boilies that they sell there work well. The better swims are 1,4,19,21. I'm going for a couple of days tomorrow ill let you know how I get on, and got to get a breakfast in the morning they're good! I really like the lake scenic but hard to catch John the bailiff is a nice bloke and the fish I have seen been caught have been immaculate as they take very good care of the fish and the lake
