  1. £7 per K is what I happily pay for Mainline, delivered. 😊 A couple of years ago I was fortunate enough to get A2 for £3 a K!!
  2. I tend to use 2 types of boilies, sometimes different sizes too. Although I have avoided 10mm lately, as the bream seem to like them on my current venue As you say hook baits are a question of trial and error
  3. Massive congratulations buddy. That's the miracle of life, enjoy!
  4. I'd rather blank at decent venue, than get a bigun in an over fished day ticket. I like my time fishing somewhere a bit special. 3 years at a reservoir and it still feels like a new challenge I'm sure you'll enjoy the quest of this place. Lots to learn.
  5. At least you got out mate. Looks a nice venue
  6. Good luck mate πŸ€žπŸ‘
  7. Lovely looking beasts. Well done sir!
  8. Thanks mate, I love it there. Only problem is I can't put the time in, so it's a slow learning process. The fish don't often show. I was up at 4-5 both mornings, when it's dead flat, but couldn't see anything in the 200+ acres.
  9. I use this JAG kit. I think it was around Β£30 several years ago. Still in perfect working order, money well spent imo. This one seems cheap, so may be a it's just the case. Most seem around Β£50 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/230686653926?mkevt=1&mkcid=1&mkrid=710-53481-19255-0&campid=5338827328&toolid=10029&customid=230686653926_1&_trkparms=ispr%3D1&amdata=enc%3A134WKm5mXQES_qunNVg4XXQ24&customid=CjwKCAjw5P2aBhAlEiwAAdY7dNaTkKOK7Fq-rCKJ3Q8ZvGD_Ps0Cvxo38RSW-kdKuoCcE7Xbva5FrBoC82EQAvD_BwE&gclid=CjwKCAjw5P2aBhAlEiwAAdY7dNaTkKOK7Fq-rCKJ3Q8ZvGD_Ps0Cvxo38RSW-kdKuoCcE7Xbva5FrBoC82EQAvD_BwE
  10. Well I did get out, at last. No fish, but enjoyed myself
  11. I wish I could fish for a week. That would be amazing. I wish I could afford a holiday. Somewhere warm, without sewage on the beach. After two blowout weekends, I'm going all religious and praying I get out this weekend. 2 nights is all I want πŸ™
  12. You been looking up holidays BB? Need new swimwear, I won't show my last ad, perhaps a bit too suggestive! I don't want to get banned, but I am starting to regret opening the linkπŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«
  13. Ok, so it's a dating site from what I can tell. I didn't enter my details. You might be right, but I am not going there. One is enough for me! Now I'm getting electronic goods?.
  14. So much for incognito tabs! At least now it has a link, Armour feel?? Sounds a bit kinky! I'll check it out and report my findings Not so sure the Mrs will be too happy if I get a Ukrainian looking like her
  15. I'm a funnel mesh user. Simple and quick to do. I'd use a bag if I was on a new water, unsure of the bottom, saw fish show and didn't want to spook them too much. Or trying to get really tight to an overhang. I did use stringers when I first started, but the mesh came out and I didn't see the need to risk stabbing my hand with a needle.
  16. I don't know about this analytics advertising. I'm really tempted to get one of these now??
  17. I'll be the first, carp (my target species) Tench Pike Good thread!
  18. Maybe that's why I like him? ?? Tell us more?
  19. Have you been watching Adam Penning? Saw it the other night, I like him for some reason, couldn't tell you why though? Kind of a Steve Davis type of character πŸ€“
  20. 10k of boilies. Β£70 Can't wait for Friday
  21. 1 ltr Dynamite liquid worm. Glug that got me off the mark last time out, so fingers crossed for next weekend
  22. Fingers crossed for you Ouch. My trip has been postponed for a fortnight. I've managed to get a good mate & very good angler I know, a winter ticket.Hopefully improve the knowledge & get onto the fish. My usual buddy hasn't been since all his gear got nicked at Xmas.
  23. Welcome to the carp side! I would imagine most people would have most of the top brands in their tackle box. Korda/fox bits are fairly easy to use, reasonable quality & price. Bank tackle do good swivels and bits. I prefer Gardner hooks but always sharpen them for that extra sharp point. Hook link, I love rigmarole fluro or hydrolink. All the other bits are a mix of brands. Happy hunting fella 🀞
