  6. Sweetcorn Kid... He does do a bit of Sea dangling... a very busy lad... met him 12years ago on Le Quis... nice bloke, I see him occasionally down Fareham way, like myself, into Traditional tackle
  7. You might find that some of the single bleeps are actually fish bumping into the line before it is along the bottom, where it 'pings' as they catch up with it on their fins. Tench, bream, carp even pike can give liners. The other possibility is that at the longer range, it could be a proper take. I have had my Delkims give only a couple of bleeps at 100metres, yet the fish had moved a fair distance. Nylon monofilament at long range could well be stretched, under tension; you have tried to tighten to the lead, the line is slightly elastic. You will remove the bow, and stretch the line. The 'semi-tight' affect in my mind is you giving enough slack to allow the line to go back to the non-stretched state. At any long distance you want the line as tight as possible, and even with that, I think that at around 60metres, the line above the lead will be running on the lake bed (did someone mention catenary effect). Possibly, dependant on rules, you might find at distance, braid is a better bet, there is minimal stretch (around 1-2%). Undertow itself does not necessarily go directly against the wind, bars, islands and plateau's can change its direction, but it can definitely mess up your baiting and line lay. It can be bringing lumps of weed against the line, 'bleep', or moving the line and lead if it is strong enough.

  22. Yesterday
  23. nice gold finch working the plum tree for insects, always said twitching was just easy angling bill odie just likes to dress up in waterproof clothing, had a wild jackdaw over today he studied how the wood pigeons use the feeders before getting his fill.
  24. I use an old 2:75lb Shimano carp rod as my marker rod , works fine
  25. Nice one I think maybe I just need to use that one for the large airbomb, I'm starting to get better at casting distances with the rods but I couldnt quite get the distance with my other spod rod I think my other rod is probably about 4lb tc because it casts a 4oz gripper nicely so probably better with a midi spomb, I guess with a balanced set up it should make it easier πŸ‘ Must get a finger stall, I have got a kevlar glove though which I keep meaning to use but if I don't start soon I will probably regret it 😭
  26. Was hoping to give the islands a visit this year been on my radar for a while
