  1. I was reading a story online about a well known sponsored angler ( he wasn't named ). But apparently he rarely if ever used boilies . Basically he seemed to fish over particles , maize mostly and fished maize on the rig . He caught well but would then claim it was caught using X boilie ... kinda got me thinking about my own fishing . I use particle a lot and usually a pop up or boilie on hook ( I do feed some chopped and whole boilies as well) . But I don't know why I use boilies ? I guess it keeps small fish away but it got me thinking at £8-10 a kilo do I really need them ? Is there anyone here that doesn't use boilies ? And why ? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated on this subject
  2. Some interesting stuff there lads , cheers. My new water is very silty with tests showing a 1.5oz lead to be sinking in as much as 12 inches in places. I've switched to helicopter set up instead of standard lead clip set up and I've been using 6-8 inch hooklinks but I think I'll try 10 inch plus rigs and vary them over three rods to see if any are more productive than others
  3. Ive been looking at various rigs on line and it seems most anglers vary the length of their rig for various situations . Personaly I tend to use short rigs 4-6 inches . But I'm not sure why . It works (most times) but does any one favour longer ones and if so what determines you to use a longer rig ? The type of bottom ? To catch wary bigger fish? Any thoughts much appreciated
  4. Cheers mate. What rig would you use if fishing a bottom bait ?
  5. Yeah that's great thanks
  6. Both knots at either end where tied with a single one loop knot . Would that be strong enough or should I have went through twice ? I did try doing it twice but it was bulky and looked clumsy. Tho the one turn loop does feel strong and secure on a hard pull when testing
  7. Cheers mate . I've tested it in a basin and it sits well so just wanted some feed back as to wether or not it was as supposed to be
  8. I've been playing around at tying my first multi rigs. How could I improve this ? Is my D loop that my bait screws attached to big enough and in the correct place ? Any hints or tips greatly appreciated thanks
  9. Ok cheers lads . Yeah I did worry threading a stick onto the multi rig would compromise the mechanics of the rig . So a stringer tied to the hook then and pva nuggets on the hook ?
  10. Cheers for reply . The idea behind the stick is really to add a bit of attraction sound the pop up . I guess I could add a stringer instead ?
  11. If, how or where would you attach a pva stick to a helicopter rig ? The lake im fishing is covered in a bed of silt and testing had shown a light lead will sink into the silt approx 6-8 inches . I'm planning on using a multi rig with a pop up set 6-8 inches above the lead helicopter style but worry if I thread the pva stick through the multi rig it will either tangle or sink into the silt. And if I attach it to the lead then surely it will sink into the silt? Any thoughts or tips greatly appreciated. Thanks
  12. It seems like such a forgotten style of fishing . An estate lake to yourself would be bliss . I know some people like to stalk the margins but as been mentioned idiots making noise usually pushes the fish to far out
  13. Chris Yates sorry , flipping auto correct lol
  14. I was watching some old Chris Yates footage on YouTube and I was wondering does anyone fish like that anymore ? Even some times ? Or do we all just sit behind our rods on our backsides these days
