  1. Hi Guys I have quite a few sessions booked on Fairview at Wistow. I have only fished it once over christmas for a few days and blanked! i have read up and have learnt a few things about the lake and the shelf and gravel bars but wondered if anyone fishes it regulary and if you can offer any tips on Bait that does well in there? i am fishing out of summerbay so any info on that swim woudl be good Thanks in advance.
  2. Lol you certainly do! I am the Logistics Manager
  3. I have been fishing for the last year and must say that most of the guys i have met on the bank are pretty friendly and discuss tactics and tips with me. A few of the older ones seem to think that women still belong in the kitchen but they really are in the minority. The facilities can put you of sometimes. As long as there is some sort of loo around thats fine. I dont expect flowers in the toilet and soft towels, just somewhere to pee..... We did buy a chemical porta loo that fits nicely into the back of the van which does its job I dont see many women fishing seriously and am still in the minority but im certain this will change. Just to mention i go fishing with my partner who taught me everything i know and he is still over a lb behind my PB
  4. HI Guys I am Fishing at Raker lakes (Wheldrake) at the weekend. I normally Fish the Acorn but due to matches will have to fish the Highbank lake for 2 days. Anyone got any info on the Hot pegs or tips on fishing the lake? Cheers
  5. Thanks all for the welcome Roll on the weekend and some Carp fishing at Raker lakes
  6. Asylum! Lol i will fit in fine then Nothing i didnt expect to be honest. The arguments for & Against dont differ much. Personaly i dont like to use them as they are a good indicator of the fish in your swim.
  7. HI I am new to the Forum and indeed Carp fishing. I started last year around August time but have got the bug. Just a quick question? What are your thoughts on using Back leads? Pro's & Cons?
