  1. Today
  2. Just had a look on YouTube seems ok make a great kids rod not for me tho would like a bit more carbon ta for the info 👍
  3. NGT make an 8' 2lb stalking rod... its cheaper than chips (about 20 quid) not a looker but a mate has one and it does the job
  4. Your lad takes a good 'photo , Highy . 😁
  5. Still running... another 4 or 5 days yet
  6. Do all daiwa basia spools fit the full range of basia
  7. Many more days of this 😁
  8. Hi I shop a lot on dabay (Real name changed). There are tons of method feeders. Some come from China. Shall I be aware of anything when buying one? I don't want the caged one, I want the one you pack the bait in it and sometimes your hair rig in it. Thxs Pat
  9. That's exactly the answers I was looking for. I never kill anything and never use anything live to fish unlike other European fishermen (Maggots, worms or minnows). So no keepnet for me. Thxs again and regards Pat
  10. Do any of the manufacturers make a 8’ or 9’ in 2lb ? ...now that would be perfect
  11. I personally haven't use a keepnet for over 20 years and probably never will again I don't think you should put any fish in a keepnet that can't turn around in it.
  12. I think that you already know the answer. A medium sized Carp or Catfish wouldn't even be able to turn around in a keepnet. If you want to take a photo, keep it in the landing net for the shortest time possible to set up the camera and then put it back. To keep several fish in a keepnet of that size for a grouped shot at the end of a session would be highly frowned upon in the UK. Sorry if that sounds a bit harsh but I think that we take our responsibilities of fish care very seriously and it ensures that our stock survives and is able to flourish, despite some fish getting caught several times a season. There are some knowledgeable and helpful anglers on this Site so feel free to tap into it and expand your understanding of the sport and the standards that we aspire to. Good luck.
  13. Naaaah... my young apprentice has a pair of the 6' Xtractors My Nash 9' Dwarfs loook waaaaay better...ðŸĪĢðŸĪĢðŸĪĢ😜
  14. I like sonik xtractor rods look class for the price, look way better than the Nash dwarf rods to.
  15. Hi I am French and have lived in the USA for 30 years. I am learning to fish for carp and whatever wants to bite here. I didn't post in the coarse fishing forum as I think it is mostly for European fishing. I chose this forum as it is focused on the USA. Here is my question: -If I fish for carp, catfish, drum or whatever bottom fish which is somewhat large (Not a huge carp or catfish of course, but somewhat much larger than a sunfish), is it pratical to keep them in a keepnet until the end of a session for a grouped picture? I am afraid those larger fish would hurt each others in a keepnet and also would tear it. I used to have a keepnet in Europe but the fish were much smaller. Thxs Pat in Georgia
  16. the tinterweb (what my mum calls it) is the greatest source of knowledge known to man firstly id pick a venue to learn on, somewhere not to big (10 acres max) as you probably don't want to be casting 120 yards on your first time out and with plenty of fish(I picked a hard water to learn on and trust me its not nice going home without having caught anything on your first 5 or 6 trips) , then ask the local tackle shop for info on the lake so if you find out its mainly silt on the bottom you've got a starting point for research, that way you don't have to learn every conceivable method of carp fishing and can keep it simple. secondly is get a marker rod and learn to use it properly, there are thousands of tutorials online (youtube like dayvid mentioned)
  17. Since they came out I've loved em...
  18. Highly have you seen the review for the AXS onYoutube Carpology tv .... That should get you dribbling 👍
  19. You tube is a great source of information if you get fed up of reading.
  20. Korda's Ali Hamidi did a starters manual giving info and guidance to budding carpers Its called Ali Hamidi's Carp Fishing Masterclass... its very good and deals with carping from starting out to expert level
  21. Left, Cygnet Bobbins. Right, Fox Sliks, got some mini Slik bobbins on way too. Sold my 2 man Bivvy. Sonik AXS to be bought next week 😁
