  3. Bow, every word written above could have come from my mouth. The Fox Warrior range of rods are considered to be amongst the best value for money that are available. If I were in your position I'd opt for a 3lb test curve. As for reels, over my decades of carp fishing I've owned and used many but I always default to Shimano or Diawa with a distinct preference for Shimano as I've never, ever, been let down by one. My current favourites are Big Baitrunner Longcasts but I'm happy to use my 10000XTEA's, assuming, of course, that my son hasn't "borrowed" them.....like he does...... Ian

  4. Can I make a suggestion or multiples of? to learn more and get experience I would concentrate on one, or at most two lakes. If you fish various lakes you will not learn about a particular water and how fish respond. Almost every lake fishes differently, different fish respond to anglers and pressure differently. I would actually get one test curve of rod, not various test curves. I fish a two rod water yet always take three rods. The spare rod is rigged up ready to cast, in case I see a showing fish, or need to put a bait out in a hurry to replace one I have just reeled in. That co

  5. I've got the gt3's in 3lb to and they are fantastic all rounders. They'll do long range and under the rod tip... But does your set up budget allow for pod/ buzzer bars, alarms and net etc? If so 2 of the gt3s coupled with a decent reel each then your budget is going to be used up. If I was you I'd look at the fox warrior range and team these with some wychwood riot reels, if you shop around should leave you about 100 quid to deal with alarms (Nash sirens s5 are very good budget alarms) one of the ft gear pods is quite good at a decent price and then maybe look at ngt for the net.

    One last night of 2016

    I did mate got to the lake about 1pm couple of lads I knew were already there and said that it was half froze until around 11am. I fished til 8pm didn't have a sniff. But had a little new year social which was good. Just about to load the car get back out hopefully for a night maybe two this time if the lake has thawed now that is.

    2017 Targets?

    Looking to spend some quality time at "my" new lake this year. Unfortunately my 2016 season didn't really kick off until July when I went over to France, but that whetted my appetite again and I am determined to put more time on the bank, specifically increasing the number of overnight sessions I do. Best times on the bank for me are first light or into the witching hour, when I can really clear my head and relax. I'd really like to beat my pb this year but doesn't seem likely unless I hook into the biggest fish in the lake in France. White Cottage's stock won't see me do it, but I don't
