    Zigs

    I’m very conflicted about Zigs. I have used them with some success but also suffered quite a few losses and, more significantly a number of foul hooked fish. Its the incidence of foul hooking that really concerns me most. I know many will claim that they’ve never foul hooked one but I’ve seen plenty hooked all around the head and pec areas. Spring last year on Dinton White Swan saw a flurry of action to the zigs. I was talking to one of the long standing members about the amount of bites being generated, to which he replied, ‘Yeah, some of ‘em were even hooked in the mouth......’ They’re banned between June and December because of the weed. No great loss to me if they were banned full stop!

    Specialized hookbaits

    Thats the advice I had for the S1s to preserve the fine coating for longer but Im not sure about the S2s which have a different finish.

    Evening all. I’m looking for recommendations as per title of this thread. Specifically, I’m interested in Hemp and Maples. Not huge quantities but I’d like to stock the freezer.

    Well, looks like I might have something lined up afterall; going to have a look at the Woolpack this weekend with a view to getting a lake 7&8 ticket. Still a ball-ache of a drive but ticks a lot of boxes👍👌

    Living in Cheshire, I’ve got used to travelling for bigger and better fishing but 3hrs is too much for now. Its not just the cost but its tiring and stressful (I’m getting old!!).

    No fencing or possibility of it!

    Seems there’s a few of us in the same boat; my syndicate has gone up £150 this year. With the cost of travelling (320 mile round trip) on top, I’m afraid I can’t justify the cost. So, for the first time in many years, I’ve no target water lined up unless a very long awaited letter drops through the door this spring!

    RIP JOHN WILSON

    Very sad news. Great entertainer on TV who made fishing accessible to a very wide audience. Demonstrated a great variety of skills-a genuine all rounder.

    Thanks-I’ve always loved Tim’s session writing, particularly the original ‘From the Bivvy’ where he documents his Birch expeiences. I’ve just joined the winter syndicate having never fished it before. I was curious about any forum members’ more recent experiences.
