    The weather and fishing.

    I tend to consider our Winters as an extended Autumn , so nothing really changes . maybe less bait , but my decisions to alter things are made at the time and venue.

    Bayswater Essex

    I'd be up for it mate, it's not far from me as you know...…….. TBH though, late Autumn/early winter would suit me as I have a few commitments in between. I think it's got a bit of winter form too...… Not sure what the joining fee is these days, used to be £50 when Bev's did them... Also, does the joining fee last a year from purchase or season to season? If it's a year from purchase, I could prob' swallow that up with a couple more visits in the Spring...….. Time wise I'm pretty flexible being local, but would need a couple of weeks notice...…… I'll leave it to you and whoever else wants in...…...🙂

    The weather and fishing.

    With summer seeming to have done one I am now starting to think about Autumn and Winter having never really done it I wondered what adjustments people make to their set ups, baits etc for the coming months to keep the bites coming in. Also what effects does the weather have on fishing? I hear about high/low pressure, wind direction, rain etc which benefit/hinder catching? Cheers

    Bedchairs

    I have an SS4 Wideboy with the sleep system, I really do love it mainly for the comfort alone, plus I don’t like sleeping bags, the down side is, it’s a heavy son of a gun. I have heard nothing but praise for the Trakker ELS, which I’d consider if I were looking for a new bed.

    deeper pro plus

    I once got on my high horse saying that the use of rowing boats and bait boats is cheating, and it took away a lot of the skill, which I still think today. I then had a lot of angry bait boat and rowing boat user/owners waving fists and stamping their feet lol, who pointed out that I was cheating by using electronic bite alarms, whilst tucked up asleep, leaving my rods automatically fishing haha! So, now I accept that fishing means different things to different people etc, and as long as nobody is doing any harm, live and let live. I can see a lot of advantage with the Deeper, maybe too much? 😀

    Flavour of the Week: Carp Rods

    I have still have a lot of my old rods, right back to the glass fibre stuff but, for most of my fishing I use 12’ 2.50lb Ballistas. I love a players rod and will use the softest rod I can get away with, for the distance and type of fishing I’m doing. My 2.75lb Amorphous are long over due a rebuild, and for distance I use 12’ 6” Torrix TE’s.

    what leader do you use for rigs ??

    Depends what rig and presentation I’m using, I still favour Amnesia and The original Cortland Micron for the majority of my fishing. My supply of the Micron is now running out though, and the new stuff is rubbish so, I have been trying other types of supple braid. I have also tried and been very happy with the ESP Tungsten Loaded.

    21 lb. to Saskcarp. He's dedicating it to the Bristol Rovers.
  23. I bought a carry all thats 12" long seems ok for the 3£ i paid for it but for £3 i cant complain if it only lasts 6 months and some rod straps cant think of anything else though
  24. Nothing on the beach yet but someone just strolled by and said a big one has just been caught up around the bend, which is encouraging

    Strange. My fishing tackle appears to have gotten itself ready for fishing. So it looks like finish work at 7pm, get back feed Sky, put rods in car and drive to Nazeing for 3 nights...

    Bayswater Essex

    Does anyone fancy a 48hr session on bayeswater dayticket lake? Obviously to be arranged at a mutually agreeable time/date. Preferably Thursday evening to Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon/evening to Tuesday afternoon/evening purely because weekends can get busy and these days will enable better swim choice. Anyway if you may be interested leave a comment
