  1. if i had a barn like that i would hook up a suitable diesel generator and jump on the CBD craze with a view to setting up for future changes in the law. bet chiilfactor could get a licence for hemp growing.
  2. damn fred is going to get me beat up he upset a staffy owner the other week, his mrs just had a pop at me due to fred not being the jack russell that he is, he towers above their staffy, i don't even let fred off his lead. he is really nice with nice dogs but he loves fighting that's why he stays on lead? not a lot else i can do really they were fine the other week when the staffy ran at him, fred bolted it damn dog went into warp drive through the woods bloke chasing it. he does look like a pitbull or at least what most call a pitbull, he is a fox terrier or jack russell he has no bully in him as a defining feature his climbing skills alone should tell you that, pure terrier.
  3. when you have the members of LACS and similar questioning the 2004 hunting act over on twitter and admitting they see a need for environmental management as they call it, got them down to dog or gun, action taken to prevent a problem or wait until the need for intervention is plain to see. lot of insults from the rank and file. some of them seem to think hunting is banned , oh deer they really are miss imformed when you bung a few at them.
  4. you need a Thumper to catch worms the big ones at least..🤑
  5. a set of custom built ballistas, gravel eater banksticks and swan neck bars, can still get them the rods are too pricey and the gravel eaters would look out of place on most waters. carp angling is not like it used to be to be diplomatic. i do like to avoid crowds when angling i'm good with two or three anglers on a five-six acer water and would love my own lake or a proper syndicate membership as in you all pony up for the lease. i'm on the verge of going back to general course fishing join all the other mid week duffers on day ticket waters waggler fishing. 🥸
  6. I did try to explain to the author of some daft book about canoeing where you like wrote by one of those protesting eco types, the reason he couldn't just paddle where he likes was down to the EA hold the responsibility for lesuer activities on all water courses and lakes even the man made gravel pits, sign posted him to take it up with the EA and not to go bothering land and lease owners it's not their call. wouldn't have it hell bent on keeping as a landowner issue, if that was the case i would be calling for a revolution, he needs the equivalent of a rod licence but for inland paddle boats.
  7. dog walk for me makes things much easier for the rest of the day, took a walk along a river tributary the other day near billing got to be some good eels and the like in there. also if i have one or two in the night i don't put those rods back out till the morning mainly due to overhead trees or thick snags nothing worse than a rod stuck in a tree in the dark.

    Dogs and fishing

    i got one of those cooling mats filled with a gel, 6 quid from wilko's might need two for sky they work really well, they would be perfect on a summer's day put over the back of a chair, gets really cold the longer you press against it.
  9. started using a pod this year simply for the ease of setting up and putting away, the fox screw point sticks lasted years, my advice get the best screw points you can afford or make a hole borer old screwdriver or something, just don't be a mallet boy guy the other week on a day ticket it was like he was putting a big top up. my pod and all just go in the barrow side bags no bags in bags.

    Dogs and fishing

    Sky wants ice. bit of a weird one the other day was sitting in the bivvy with fred and something fell against the back of the bivvy sounded like a few twigs falling out a the tree, fred shot out and round the back, heard something squeaking, went out and fred had hold of a mole i made him drop it and he did first ask, i had a look and seen it was a mole with a twisted front led, it could barely crawl let alone dig so i let fred deal with it, very fast and clean back of the neck and wrag. I was wondering if the mole had been picked up by a buzzard or something, wouldn't expect a mole to live in a flood area like that let alone out in the day. no mole hills near by?
  11. that's the one third party liability same for boats and swimming, if carp angling wasn't such a money sport three and four day sessions would be banned due needing a sleep it's a very grey area.
  12. same as, i did used to do a lot of window cleaning on the big houses in warwick distance relatives of landed aristocracy most of them were pretty laid back, i did throw a bad strop one winter's evening, that was on a massive house owned by the new rich, i spent all day jet washing all the paving and that around the house, come the end of the day the housekeeper came out with a cuppa and a kit katt, i was like, no thanks need to get home, my gaffer hit the roof he grabbed the kit kat and scoffed it, i just told her straight i'm too hungry wet and cold for chocolate like i said i just want to get home... opps
  13. anyone tried these or got any thoughts if you google the thread title and watch the vids on youtube there are the rig bits for sale don't want to link as it's a guys own product, the end knot that holds the hook looks a bit dodgy looks like it really needs care when setting up. Anyone going to give them a go?
  14. she seems ok but most of the socialists in coventry couldn't run a canteen raffle, they make a lot of noise but don't really do much Zarah is nice but she will back any cause that is the underdog didn't learn from all that baggage corbyn carries.
  15. it does work both ways, i have never been interested in chris's angling due to his middle class personality, i always expect them to be very conservative at least, it has caused me problems when you meet otherwise nice people but just pretty much blank them, then again you get people in angling that went to the private school got a great life but constantly insult those that live with any gov help, a certain someone had a pop at me due to him thinking i had a council end salary pension, he seems to think the pensions are a perk of the job, they really aint, back in the 1990's it was 50 odd notes a month out your wages for a low end civil servants pension, they are not cheap and certainly not a perk.
  16. I used fluro for years on all reels only stopped due to the blue dye stuff they use for the weed looks like a laser pointer in that stuff, Tiger line is fantastic, the fox illusion is ok but i think i may off loaded it wrong, did the spool sticker side up and it seemed of but it still behaves like a slinky if you open the bail arm and give slack. does sink nice though just need to give it extra time to settle before setting your bobbins.
  17. i can beat for foul hooked had a big pike on my deeper took it like a surface lure hung on to it until the edge too, tell ya if i could surface lure fish and catch like that i'd be a happy angler. Had my first carp from the new water, it was with the deeper finding areas to fish found some loveshallowkow bars out in the middle fished chods for nods on all three rods due to the silk weed, got a bit happy with the large spomb and put 4 kilo of bait out. around the 24 mark on my prologic scales.
  18. i blame putin the nasty little git russia should join nato and things would be sweet. just back from from a bit of shopping for a fishing trip, hardly bought anything all food for me and the dog plus cold drinks shocking at the till, screw fit gas cans are getting low go outdoors never had any, that's a first.
  19. john baker's latest vid covers rigs and still catching despite their use, long distance rigs that you know will land right and reset might not be the best for hooking a fish, he swears by using a simple hair rig with a long hair if the fish are above 30, i do recall that's how chris b used to fish his big lake when using bottom baits, he did a FB post of a few days he did as the big lake was fishing hard for bottom baits, he pulled a couple of forties out using a braid rig and double boilie on a long hair, no hook jewelry just pushed the point of the hook through the hair to give it the blow back action.
  20. very nice H ✌️ just ordered a dawia spod rod 10 foot 4 and a half test, should be able to drop a large spomb of goods on my rig in one hit also got some basics braid by korda say it don't need a leader but i might put a bit of arma cord on, will also be using as my deeper rod and wraps. finaly ordered the side bags for my barrow, once i get a set of the paniers i won't need to take any bags just a bait bucket and water. which i walk round anyway just the bed, bivvy and mat on the main frame everything else should go into barrow frame bags.
  21. it's a strong sun out i'm brown all ready only takes a lick of sun and i soon darken up for the summer, i'm ment to be staying out the sun but can't see any point in that. it looks good for later in the weekend might be a bit of rain on the way.
  22. just like last year, only difference is they are telling the truth and calling out otters, they blamed dogs last year, i took them apart on it on their twitter page last year, linked my MP in due to her being slightly pro hunt believe it or not. My main bone of annoyance was they were blaming dogs where i sometimes walk mine, have not took fred up but used to take my pattie, i knew it wasn't dogs, unless they mean dog otters. they are gutted to have to admit it, got told straight blame another dog and i will come up and take the time to prove it's not a dog, they would look real silly then seems they are meant to be experts. https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/local-news/cygnets-killed-ryton-pools-country-24236263?fbclid=IwAR3MYpO6PQHxowUqKRC_m9AFzws3qBCB3eZqetfhQO351fdGNKKlgECyjgo noticed these weird charity groups that run wildlife areas are very anti dog. anyhow here's fred doing what he was made for silently waiting for the rat to get to close, the rat flew into the pond when fred first bolted him, this is fred waiting for him to come back. proper all round terrier picks things up real fast. not a sound never get a even a yip out of him when he is in the zone.
  23. i'm liking the gardner line i'm using it's the HD one, very good casting line pretty beefy too, i like to use the local shops when i can, none seem to have the hydro tuff in stock, the fox illusion is a good line casts well bit stingy on spool size though. yeah i'm still up, should be making sarnies right about now!
