  1. First little bash with the new centre pin gear on the river this evening. Great fun way to spend 3 hours and 2 pints of maggots. Managed many many dace, various sizes, nothing massive. Never caught a dace before. There were larger fish about, but I struggled to get through the small dace and minnows. Managed at the end to start getting the bigger dace. Was time to go all too soon! Some work to do to master the centre pin, but by the end I had it moving nicely, and was able to fish further out into the river. 2 things were frustrating. Minnows, and the line bedding in so it chan

    Welcome to the forum. The best bit of advice I can give you is don't set targets. Just enjoy your fishing and fish lakes where it's possible to catch your target and just fish but without a particular aim as imo you'll get fed up quickly if you don't achieve it.

    No... A cheap one. Can't remember it's name but about £30. Does the same job. I don't tend to go for expensive items just good functionality. Fishing on a budget. Sent from my Sony Xperia

    I don't think Phil is having any sort of pop at the people who buy this range of tackle. The way I read it, he was noting the over inflated rrp's. He was asking 'do you think the tackle is worth the rrp?'

    Completely agree big common I couldn't care what people fish with & have said Exactly what you have many a time .... just pointed out that the rrp's were ridiculous. Someone else tried to make it about what I might earn & that noses would be turned up if you were seen in some boots where I live . Both false assumptions. I'm always the scruffy git at the socials & in the oldest nail

    Welcome to Carp.com Forget targets, enjoy your fishing rather than letting it become a numbers game. The more you treat it as a numbers game the more you will realise why you gave it up in the first place. Look, learn, read, read and react.

    Cheers crusian, yes you read rite, bayeswater has taken a back seat sinse June, I'll try and get a couple of 24 hr sessions in over bayeswater over the winter as i cant do nights on my club lake so bayeswater is my closest preferred option for an overnighter or two (plus I have unfinished business with that lake lol) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    your right far to much hard work involved. People earn more than me in benefits a year just by having kids for a living & expect the rest of us to pay ! So haven't a clue where I live & what my job has anything to do with it.... but you do seem to bring it up at every opportunity! Nuf said

    Had 27 carp from 33 takes to 24 lb from Naseby a couple of weeks ago. The place itself wasn't my cup of tea at all but I can't say I didn't enjoy what turned into a very wet, muddy weekend. A right laugh as a one-off. Back on the syndi this week dreaming of 40 lb commons.

  25. ''not too expensive'' If you go every other week for a 24hr session it's going to cost you nearly 900 quid in your first year - sounds a bit expensive to me.

    Anyone can say a lake is easy when they haven't fished it. I've smashed redmire to bits in my head many times [emoji2] it was easy. Just carry on enjoying your fishing mate. We don't go to blank. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
