    FUMING is not the word...rang my local A.D to see if my order was in store...after all the rigmoral...basicaly the order not processed and has been missed...luckily I got a refund. Soooo...on my way home I chanced Go Outdoors...they didn't have the Sonik Spod Reel but the basic 8000....so i picked up the 8000 reel...2 spools of Braid...2 lots NGT distance sticks (1 for mate)...proceeded to till. After putting it through she replied Β£35...????????? She handed me all the gear so I walked to car....looked at receipt to see if half price...she had NOT put the reel through...saving of Β£45. So now ordered 2 x Spombs & Spomb Float off eBay.

    It has been a very healthy year weather wise. No mental heat waves has meant the carp have continued to feed throughout the entire summer and this is reflected in fish weights. All over the country fish are coming out at top weights, MASSIVE weights. It's also done the environment the world of good. The grass is green and the water is clear, unlike last year when the grass was brown and the water was pea green!

    Well done all 😎 I blanked πŸ™ˆ Had one of those sessions that anything that could go wrong did lol . Just hope that's out the way in readiness for France. Did manage 2 bites on last morning after working hard for a few days, only to get cut off with the first one & got done with a drop back bite on the second right on last knockings.... just to rub in lol . Still had a great time with good friends though & a much needed chill out

    How to make to most of autumn

    Never be afraid to move. Numerous times I've moved after catching fish. Most times its paid off but there will always be that time when you should have stayed. I recall one time on my old syndicate and I'd had 3 fish one morning. The wind turned and as soon as it did I was packing away. Another member questioned why move after 3 fish and I just said i know the fish will move. He wanted to know where I was going as his gear was on his Barrow, naturally I said nothing. He said, well I'll jump in here then when you move, I just laughed and moved. I got to the swim I wanted, cast my 3 rods. Half hour later I saw the first fish show about 70/80 yds away to my right. I had 3 fish in the following 2hrs. The other bloke set up in my swim and blanked. You can't catch if the fish arent in front of you, it's that simple.

    ha I do give great hugs πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰ I quite like doing the short sessions, they are good for making you ring the changes and think fast I still think we could learn a lot from match angling they don't sit about waiting for bites they make them happen

    Well today it became apparent why we've struggled all week , biggest hatch of damsel fly's I've seen . So should think the carp have been pre occupied with the emerging/ changing nymphs. Just bad timing ... been scratching my head all week & I think I found the answer today.

    Anyone had proper job pop ups?

    Not with my casting technique mate - that's all I know. Don't forget that with the Multi your talking about an extremely low pop-up, maybe if it were higher it wouldn't be able to turn and catch under the putty, but it can. Granted it's quite rare that it happens but occasionally it does. A lot of this will depend on how stiff the hooklink is, I know that with the materials I use, big blobs of putty are a no no Urban baits pop-ups stay up for days, hold up a size 4 and only require a small amount of putty, I've tested a lot and these work perfectly for me πŸ‘

    I'm debating whether his account was hacked or it was a change of colours... I tend to favour the former, but until I know, the account is on hold. For me, more PVA, seem to be going through loads again on mesh and stringers.

    Still use mine and they just stay like that on my alarm and stuffed in my mat at the end of the session. In saying that I’m a scruffy angler and everything just gets bodged together at the end.πŸ™„πŸ™„ Very versatile indicator,my mate has the newer version like yours Highy and there not as beefy as mine but still do a job.

    Confidence in Carp Fishing

    Well experience comes from trial and error, I have rigs that i am happy with, I reached this conclusion as a result of going through the trial and error phase in my formative years as a new carper years ago. Simple thing was there wasn't really anything in the way of dedicated carp mags that were available when I was trialling things, I remember early issues of carpworld coming out and devouring those, but other than that, if I wanted to indulge in rig information, it was reading books or talking to other anglers on the bank. I used to have junior anglers who would ask me to teach them rig tying, and why not? I learned how to tie a hair rig from an older carper who showed me on the bank. I also get confidence from choosing the correct venue, I have two club books that I fish. One lake fishes better in the summer when the other is choked with weed, yet in the winter when the first pit dies a death and the carp seem to vanish off the face of the earth, the second pit is now far less weedier and the fishing is coming into its own. It fishes well right through the winter and into spring. Knowing where to target and when is also key to catching regularly.

    Why would you change if you've had good success on a certain bait?
