  1. Cheers👍 As a Teacher my holidays are fixed so I fish mid-week during holidays and then return to odd weekends during term time. I’m a habitual watcher of the weather but in practical terms I go when I can.
  2. Think you might be on to something Yonny. In the last couple of years on 3 different waters I’ve had most of my better results in ‘poor’ conditions; high pressure, warm often sunny days. I’m not one for keeping extensive records but I also know that the moon phases have been ‘bad’ too🧐
  3. Instead of ‘pulling’ the needle through, try ‘pushing’ the leadcore off the needle.
  4. It can be very difficult to access any information about the NW region in particular. If you are prepared to travel your options increase significantly but I’m guessing you already know that!
  5. If using it as a long running chod I’m happy using the camflex. But I’m using braid mainline so need something to protect the fish.
  6. Retainers are designed for short periods only-I’d say upto 45mins max depending on time of day, depth of water and temperature. Because they float the fish is restricted into the depth it needs to feel comfortable. Night time, shallow weedy water in the height if summer is a recipe for disaster since the oxygen level will be at its lowest. I think there needs to be more education on this point. My advice is to practice your self-takes and not risk the fish. Sacking through the night is an unnecessary risk.
  7. In addition, I’d use it for tying up my Sweet Peas in the garden. Seriously, for something as important as line, stick with branded, reliable manufacturers/brands.
  8. I’m happy to help any genuine guy who is struggling to get contact details or any information. However, I’m a little uneasy about repeatedly handing out information to new forum members who appear to have registered simply to glean what they can, never to be seen again. Therefore, I won’t be responding to further requests on this thread.
  9. Be interested in your feedback-I’m considering one myself👍
  10. That’s pretty much my thoughts in terms of justifying the extra cost👍
  11. Anybody used these? Any feedback?👍🏻 https://britishaquafeeds.com/product/coppens-supreme-15-grower-25kg/
  12. Pretty sure Rollin Baits will roll the original BFM recipe (Dave Moore is their consultant and creator of the recipe). They might supply the basemix for you.
  13. Yes, I’m having some doubts myself having watched a few YouTube clips! Plus, I’d be a bit squeamish about chopping up my ‘pet’ worms!
