  2. I am in the middle of rebuilding my MK IV cane rod and had really decided in my head to just whip the rings etc on and not whip any intermediates... then my wife was in my workshop whilst I was whipping rings on and I put a couple of intermediates in just to show her what it would look like.... that’s much better she said 😂😂 I must admit I don’t enjoy whipping intermediates ( does anyone ) but now she has me thinking.. do I or don’t I...

  3. Not sure if they add strength, but they do add weight and stiffen the action. Not that I would ever think you would, but a properly finished cane rod sells for loadsamoney... That means getting the same number of 'whips' on every ring past the foot

  8. If i decide to whip the intermediates ( which i probably will ) luckily I can still see where the original intermediate whips were so i should be able to get them back about right.. I don't think I would ever sell any of my vintage stuff, I have 5 built cane rods in all and they all get well used.. hence this one being refurbished.

  12. Problem is different manufacturers have different sizes. In some I'm xl or large top, yet trousers are either medium or large. Chest size is 42, with 16 collar in shirts. Hard part is the 32/34 waist with 32/33 inside leg, exactly as I was when I left school, 24 years ago!

    I am a massive fan of the esp tungsten loaded, I moved onto that when the striptease proved hard to get hold of.

  18. You are spot on about inflows giving oxygen and also stirring the bottom, my last house was a two minute walk from our canal ( which I fished for twenty odd years for carp ) there was one part with a high bank and field on the opposite side, the farmer used to pump water out of the canal in late evenings, the water was pumped up the steep bank into a tanker and when the tanker was full the overflow would come down a return pipe back in the canal causing a powerful wash which stirred up the bottom and at the same time put lots of needed oxygen back into the water... I used to regularly bait and

    PB jelly wire is the one I seem to go back to it's lovely to use, and I'm getting into Gardner trick link at the moment, I've tied up a few different rigs up this week, just to do something to chill out 😳 That being said I do own and will use a few others 😁 ESP tungsten loaded stiff and semi stiff (prefer semi stiff I think) Mouth trap Bank tackle semi stiff coated, not a bad braid tbh very usable and reasonably priced I would really like to find a really nice uncoated braid though still? 😂 ESP sink link was good, bank tackle kevlar one is OK, but a real nice

  23. They don't usually float when they go off, the oil goes rancid and becomes inedible and I think toxic. Frank and probably Greekski know more than me on that. A very worthwhile tactic anyway, some smaller sized pellets in a batch often do float until they have taken on water and break the water surface tension. I use the method on Bromeswell regularly to get fish right into the margins, then fish a free lined bait on the surface hanging off the rod tip. It is where a nice brown trimmed pop-up really scores...

  25. Found this guy on YouTube. Plays Heavy Metal overlays to things he sees. He found these couple of Trump loving lunatics on a god channel. The guy on the left is a complete fruitcake and the one on the right tries his best not to be embarrassed! Funniest thing I've seen in a long time.
