  4. I was walking the kids around the local nature reserve lake the other day when a polish lad stopped me and asked me to take a pic of a common heโ€™d just caught, he released it to. Nice lad shows thereโ€™s some eastern euros catching them for the sport.

  7. I've recently been trying out the ESP stuff as an alternative to my usual Korda n-trap. It's okay but I don't like the way the inner braid behaves at the loop. It's fraying way too easily whereas the Korda stuff stays perfectly formed.

  10. I've recently started carp fishing and been using bought rigs as it seems a minefield. Now want to tie some simple rigs like those I've bought but confused on what hooklink material I should buy as a general purpose rig base while I learn the ropes. Stiff, semi stiff, soft, coated, fluro or mono?

  11. I have lived in France for two years now, really enjoy the Lot valley east of Cahors. The last two summers have seen heatwave conditions and far less than usual rainfall. Hence it's been a struggle to get fish in gin clear water and when I have hooked up the better fish have broken me running through the heavy weed This last trip started that way, a fish on in the first 5 minutes. It instantly torpedoed 10 yds into a huge weed bed, even a tight drag was not going to stop it! Trace then parted under the weight of weed and the fish still motoring! I was targeting barbel, but this

    You don't fish any of the essex club waters that half decent fish in then !! Some of the Essex clubs have (maybe still do) had major problems with idiots getting drunk and off their heads on god knows what .

  19. Thanks Commonly I'll take a look. Framey I noticed it seemed to be variations and wanted to start there. Just confused by the choice of materials Crusian I've used several and caught on the local pond with them. All from different makers. Mainly pva bag rigs, hair rigs, combi rig and multi rig . I'll check what line they are using

  20. Hello Lorez , which bought rig gave you most confidence / best hook holds ? . Why not take that rig and then buy the components to tie that rig yourself , unless it looks particularly tricky / costly , and you would be better off just buying ready mades ? . Personally I have never liked tying up rigs , I always seem to be putting it off ! . ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  21. mark the line with a power gum stop knot or line varnish after hitting the clip first time around Then you can either go around distance sticks or walk the line out or even cast and wind back to the mark and re clip

  23. ESP Semi Stiff is the best I have used so far, no complaints whatsoever, very impressed as are my mates who have swapped to it since. I have no use for the soft, semi stiff is bang on ๐Ÿ‘

    Why go fishing to get drunk and high. If that's what you want to do just do in a safer environment. Save the fishing for when you actually want to fish. It is sad and tragic for his family and friends but if you spend the night by the water drunk and high your asking for trouble.

    After growing up in a high crime and drug area with the sort of problems most smaller towns and cities are seeing today my views on drugs are similar to elmoputney. Cannabis should be sold with the same regulations as booze, with restrictions in place on THC content, i think the 97 percent THC extracts you can get in the USA are just silly, Drugs like Coke and amphetamines should not be legal they cause way too much harm. LSD and real MDMA not the synthetic stuff should also be regulated and sold to adults if they wish to use such things. Heroin addiction should be treated

    Another angling death on Sunday: https://www.ipswichstar.co.uk/news/chantry-park-ipswich-suffolk-closure-for-body-found-1-6270782 Anyone who knows me, via here or Facebook knows how often I walk round the park with my dog. The air ambulance was just taking the body away as I was walking my dog round the park lake on Sunday morning. Two police officers inside the police tape on the bank footpath with bivvy inside as well. I had actually walked Sky around the park at 23.30 the night before, doing a 'patrol' against poaching and taking of fish, and I know da

    Thought of the Day pt.2

    Starting to wonder if my day ticket lake has had it. There were reports of otter kills a few years ago (unfenced) anyway, I've noticed over the last 2 years catch rates have dropped, but also the number of people fishing has dropped. On a weekend if you wasn't here by 6am you wouldn't get a swim, people would be queuing outside the gates waiting for it to open. In the winter on a weekend the lake would be half full easily. anyway, I would say the last 5 or so times I've been here this summer it has been practically empty with 2 maybe 3 people fishing. Theres something going on I
