    Didn't J.W. cut the waders down into a sort of buccaneer style so he could kneel down without getting his knees wet ? . Sounds like you need some lightweight waders where the wellie part is joined with a waterproof top half which is fabric rather than heavier / hotter / less manoeuvreable rubber ? . 😃

    Hello Danny , would cutting a pair of waders down " John Wilson " style be sufficient for you ? .

    I’ve got the green but likely I’ll get a Brown if I’m happy with it and mix them together

    Will let you know...ive been walking round the house in em for about 20mins...easy moving...but 1 thing noticed is that when you sit down...they feel abit tight on the rear...(maybe just my fat rear)...as if pulling down on shoulder straps when sitting (maybe need slacken off abit).

    Critique my rig...

    I probably have too but when I found I had foul hooked one that had probably just swam straight into the rig whilst feeding I thought how silly if I had used a bottom bait it would've hoovered it up no worries

    Some new purchases of the bay today. A hook sharpener and a jeweller's lens, I don't know what the quality is like but for 6 quid I thought why not, if no good I can always bin em. I also got myself a phone case for my new phone.

    Winter tactics

    You're right, they find the most comfortable depth, which is the most stable temperature-wise. Normally the middle layers as cold water is denser and sinks.

    With all the talk of technology flying about, I have to admit to going the other way (oo-er missus) I have reverted back to split-cane rods, center-pins, or Mitchell 300/400 reels and optonics.... what next...??? milk bottle tops... a penny placed on the spool with a hubcap below it...? Gotta say since I went traditional I have caught more... dunno why, can't put a finger on it... perhaps it's because you wouldn't expect to catch using such antiquated gear, but that said, subconsciously the pressure is off... if you are not expecting to catch, then you put less pressure on yourself... and the results come... Lets get one thing clear... I still use carbon gear occasionally and I am not advocating that everyone uses cane and pins to up their catch rate.... what I am saying is that we anglers can be our own worst enemies when it comes to hunting down that biggun.... Once I started in on the traditional side of carping, I used my watercraft skills to stalk carp out of margins, more often than not just using one rod to lay traps and picking up the odd good fish and relying less and less on bite alarms and chucking to the horizon, leading about, marker float trips, swim mapping and the like... even down to using just a hook with a bait, nothing else, no line clips, no leads, or fancy rigs... as soon as I started to fish purely for the enjoyment of the day, the pressure on myself was off and my catch rate went up.... nowadays I think too many anglers are putting pressure on themselves to pick up that magical fish... too much time spent planning and not enough time just grabbing a rod, reel, bag, net and chair and fishing purely for the fun of it... and the proof of the pudding has to be the smile when you do get a chunk.... All too often I see pictures in the angling press of some bod with his sponsor's tee shirt and hat and a serious whacker in his arms and a face like a bulldog licking pee of a nettle... they are probably thinking" where's the next big hit coming from" What I will say is, take the time to enjoy the journey... even smell the flowers along the way and when you get that lump.... for god's sake.... smile...😁 Tight lines all

    I'm not sure about that mate. Anglers angle for enjoyment. Some guys enjoy a relaxed approach, some guys enjoy a more focused approach. I am one of those anglers that struggles to relax on the bank, always looking for an opportunity, up trees, on the move, staying up late, getting up early. I'm absolutely knackered after a fishing session. But it's not pressure that sees me angle like that. It's just what I enjoy. I'd get bored just sitting next to the rods for hours. I am always looking to make something happen (and normally it works). I always chuckle when I see those miserable shots. But make no mistake those guys are absolutely buzzing regardless of what they might look like. They are thinking only of getting the shots they need then returning the fish they spent a long time chasing back in the water safely. It's good that we have these choices, but it has to be said; the most effective angler is the one that knows when to do all of the above.
