    They do what they are meant to and are a bargain!
  2. Instant Action

    Just been given 15 kilos of candy but crush instant action, actually quite impressed with the make up of them and the smell. Worth a punt

  9. Mainlines latest offering The Link

    There in lies the answer, it's the going bait because everyone is using it so it's going to catch the majority of fish. I've mentioned before I know your water and am friends with a couple of members, one uses nothing but mainline shelf life banoffee and catches from there, I think we sometimes put too much emphasis on bait. I'd be tempted to go with the singles approach or small pva bags just trying to by a bite and maybe repositioning every hour or so fishing for a bite at a time
  10. PVA bag fishing

    I find the cc Moore belachan bag mix very good

  12. Joining a Syndicate/Water

    Also look at club lakes? I pay 75 quid a year for my club and have access to 5 decent carp waters and one that is rock hard and holds fish to over 40. I know you're in a different part of the country but clubs can offer great fishing working out at pennies per trip

  14. Help needed to sink braid

    Is that the kastking stuff? Makes quite good spod ding braid as it floats I don't think you can soak it in anything but I see from another post you've switched from mono to braid because you're getting cut off snag fishing, ever thought about using a mono snag leader instead? Braid as a mainline is so unforgiving
  15. How to fish this water

    Birds don't like the spomb and braid lying on the surface so I usually make a cast with a baited spomb then don't retrieve it, I'll use the spomb as a marker for the catapult or throwing stick to get a better spread of bait. The gulls don't go anywhere near it!
