Have you ever added up the cost of your bait and tickets  ? 

Tickets is easy 'ish, it is the cost of the season ticket, with maybe a few day tickets thrown in.

Bait is more difficult, whatever I use or need over a year, might be hemp, Vitalin, birdfoods, or boilies.

Not I daren't add it up, simply it changes each month depending on fishing time and venue.

Deadbaits is a case of I might go through loads if I'm catching plenty.

Bit the bullet and got a 2 man jrc peaked defender bivvy 

An okuma c fight 6000 reel to go on my stalker rod 

And an ngt collapsible bucket 

I just hope it arrives for next week when it's a 48 hour session with the littlest kid 

Nothing wrong with JRC Bivvies mate . I used my old Sti 2 man at the weekend and it’s still going strong .

gotta be 12 years old now .

And I love those collapsible buckets . I don’t have the NGT version but my one IS excellent 👍🏻

I've still got an old jrc cocoon bedchair which I keep because it has outlasted 3 others, it's a bit battered but it's good enough for a spare /kids bed and it's light because I've used cable ties on it and even with the mouse holes it's still quite good 😂

The kid said to mummy just  after I ordered this that she wasn't sure about the 48 hour session anymore, sometimes you just can't blooming win😭 will be good for a French basecamp though and I can always take them another time that way

I use a 2 man for France as it gives a bit more luxury lol

I think a little more decadence wouldn't hurt,I may even drink my beer in a glass in France 😂

I like my bunker but it does feel like a shell sometimes, especially if I've managed to empty all the bags all over the place just being able to chuck it over there would be an advantage,

Don’t strip it all off lol

will have plenty and no waste

I didn't, I only went to the backing, I would need a bulk spool for each reel otherwise they are massive spools , when I did the backing I had tried to put the right amount on so I could use 1 bulk spool for 3 reels, only thing I didn't count for was probably doing too many extra turns on the first two 😂

There's a bit of a nack to steering it? 😂😂

I've just used mine for the first time and well, it's fun but not very stealthy with me in control 😂 

I think there great myself....I've got mine also with me, but the hopper at the back has snapped a spring, so can only half fill it due to weight.

Aah , it’s not just me then .

I think it would be helpful if you played a lot of computer games with a joystick ; I have found that small movements on the joystick give better results .

There is a button that changes the “ trim “ , or is it the “ yawl “ ? .

😃

I've done some more holiday shopping, after extensive research I have bought some 6ft NGT profiler rods and profiler 60 reels for the kids £85 for a 2 rod set up 🙄😳 they look pretty OK for the money tbh, carbon, reviews all seemed fairly positive and I won't cry too much if they break them 😂

And a kampa khazi 😳

I've had a few issues with invicta angling on ebay now, they don't send things when you order them 3 times this has happened now, so I've reordered some lead free leader too, and I've cancelled the bivvy I ordered aswell as it wasn't going to arrive in time for Wednesday, so will have to try again

What t/c are the rods? They look pretty decent 👍
