  1. Today
  2. Well that's alright then because I haven't been doing it that right lately Surely it can only help πŸ˜‚
  3. I only say that as the first time I went out on to dinton in a boat to retrieve a fish opened my eyes considerably. The picture I had in my head couldn't have been further from what I saw. To such an extent that I started to change the way I fished even though I was catching and obviously doing it right already.
  4. Turns out you can sort of 😁
  5. I'm not going back to the 70's πŸ˜‚ Unless Can you get Camo flares? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ˜
  6. Yesterday
  7. Don’t forget the seasick tablets.... and flares πŸ˜‰
  8. Seems to be the way to go if you don't want the hassle of public waters, plus with these new embryo lakes opening syndicate lakes will be easier to get on, they have some nice waters already and the prices are good, which i was surprised about. They have a big venue opening soon just of the A1 near Lincoln one for the northerners that like Linears but not the drive this will have alsorts of carp lakes on it. Disney Norton.
  9. Oh good I'm not frazzled enough already πŸ˜‚
  10. Hopefully Sept. will bring cooler temperatures , big winds and feeding fish ! . I look forward to seeing your smiling face with a big old carp . 😁
  11. Can't fish it until 1st September, so spent some time looking for barbel on the Wensum. I did help out with weed clearing a couple of swims, and met a few of the other members. Lovely looking place, but no publicity, so any fish captures will be with cut out background. It looks like a place I could happily spend a few years.
  12. It will either give you ideas or absolutely fry your brain.
  13. How's your new syndicate working out for you , Nick , are you enjoying yourself ? . πŸ˜ƒ
  14. Well nothing happened annoyingly, once I had done all the raking I didn't see another carp 😭 It was another gamble and another lesson learnt, flip me its hard to find a decent spot on that big lake lol, I guess I found a couple of places those sneaky ones hide though so it isn't a total waste, need to do some hard graft now to get some spots rocking I think, and also some mobile margin fishing, just need some rudd proof bait cos they are a nightmare, they destroyed my pigeon food in minutes, will be great for the kids but a right pain for me πŸ˜‚ 6th blank on the trot now I think I got lucky my first 2 sessions on there πŸ™„ I'm building up to another one though and it's nice to be there, just got to keep adding bits to the puzzle, Hopefully getting out in the boat will give me some fresh ideas πŸ€”πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘
  15. This is the tadpole bag insert, I just use a std size 8 bank tackle ring swivel with it, 9/10 the lead discharges before the swivel, I did try a few but this one was the best I found, it just works everytime
  16. Our flint loves a postie it gives him a good excuse to run wild and bark his little head off.πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£
  17. I use the fox inline pear and chop the incert just behind the thick bit place the swivel which I find a better fit than korda leads into the thick cut piece run the leader or line over the top in the groove rubber sleeve on the end good to go drop the lead on a take but take a very substantial cast etc
  18. As a Postie I'm lucky to meet many different breeds of dog , but a bouncy Spaniel is one of my favourites - I'm also quite partial to a blue Staffie . πŸ˜„
  19. Glad hes back with you both an doing well butty
  20. The vets and love finchey believe me you can see it in his face hes as happy as a pig in the proverbial😁
  21. Definitely and he is eating normally so tube coming tomorrow or day after. Running around playing with his toys. Me and the wife didn't think we would ever is that again. The vets have done an amazing job. 😁😁😁
  22. I dont think it's that elmo look how much the government have lied about it I know someone who passed away it said on the cert covid but they had terminal cancer and wasnt able to get their treatment?? Members of my family had it xmas I was with them all I didnt get it and am not a carrier my misses has no immune system she surely would have contacted it from me if I was my mind is allways open
  23. Look how happy he is to be back with the ones that love him
  24. Oh yes, I bought a life jacket as well for my syndicate. Boat is only for weeded fish, but I would much rather have my own inflating life jacket rather than a borrowed one.
  25. I would play around with inline leads, and found that rubber tulip beads would hold better than the Korda insert. A couple of manufacturers rubber buffer beads also hold inside the lead. I did go through a stage of neoprene sleeving on the (original) Korda stiff plastic insert to hold onto the swivel. This is a rubber tulip bead in an inline lead. Think that holds pretty well, I'm lifting the lead up myself from the worktop.
