  1. If you go farlows don't avoid or ignore any area of the lake . The big fish get all over the lake. I seen somebody advise you get in main body of the lake and avoid certain areas. That's bad bad advice look every nook and cranny there well catchable on there. You just got to get on them. Its also easy to blank if you get you location wrong.
  2. Be very carefull just because a lake calls it' self a syndicate doesnt mean its a prestigious water these days. There some bad ones out there. As Dayvid said majority of good syndicates you need to no somebody on there to get on. Best thing to do search syndicates in your local area on the net. Any you like the look of ring put your name on there waiting list ask if you can go for a look round. Just by wondering round it your getting you foot in the door.
  3. If your only doing a day or a over nighter spod and marker rods proberly better off staying in the bag. Happy new year.
  4. There a simple answer if people are so concerned about as something as insignificant as a lead clip been danerous stop putting a razor sharp hook in there mouths.
  5. Your right mate but it all comes down to user error if the clip comes off the swivel. There three types of lead clips the hybrid which are a bit OTT imo the clips with pegs that fix the clip there pretty fool proof and the push over the swivel until you hear a click type. All work perfectly well if used properly. I am a bit of lead clip devotee to be honest use them for the majority of my bottom fishing.
  6. Most lead clip can be used to drop the lead every take and every lead clip can keep the lead on the clip every take including the hybrids. I was recently reading the big interview book which is spin off from Carpworld. DF is interveiwed its from a good few years ago and even back then DF stressed the importance of only dropping the lead when absolutely nessasary. If you are useing lead clip and fish to keep the lead imo you should still be dropping the odd one noun and again if you never loose a lead then the tail rubber is to tight. You should loose the odd one.
  7. Which manufactures are advocating dropping leads unessarily? There was a bit of a trend to drop the lead with out thought but imo these days are gone. Vast majority of anglers ain't dropping leads for the sake of it these days. Only the gullible were doning it in the first place. There are situations where dropping the lead in thick weed for example is the best way forward. There also a big difference between dropping a lead every fish on a low stocked pit where you might catch a few fish a year to dropping a lead every fish on brasenose!
  8. I don't even look at breaking strain on the box it' all about diameter would only drop down to 0.30 if there are no snags, weed ect and I had to cast long even then I'd be wary.
  9. They build houses on flood planes then when they flood they blame it on man made climate change. As for fishing then and fishing now. It was it was, and it is what is. Otters will only find a natural balence when the do gooders stop interfiering which isnt going to happen. Only one way to deal with otters and that is on the sly. Simple as. Although i do beleive more and more that its a minority of otters that cause majority of the problems.
  10. It's not throwing a spanner in the works as it' a situation that isn' going to happen. The lakes I fish wouldn't compete money wise ,alot of the lakes i fish arnt managed at all there only managed by nature thats why i fish them. In the said situation the sort complex that would get them fish would likely be a lake that I wouldn't be fishing In the first place. Its also a different situation as old fish been moved because a lake is been filled in isnt the same as going to a fish farm and buying 30lbers that are 5 or 6 year old.
  11. No problem with stock fish but i wouldn't personally fish for carp that were stocked at 30lb plus or super fast growing ugly fish. I just don' think VS are the best fish in the world.
  12. There all stunners. 2nd down 3rd down and and 4th down stocked top and and bottom pics naturally spawned is my guess. What strain are they?
  13. I agree with alot of that. Don't get the whole VS craze well it's because they got a few scales. Some of them do go on to be nice looking fish like the wraysbury ones. He picking out the very best ones though and putting them in a great enviroment. Majority of VS fish though they stand out as been VS fish a mile off even after they been in the lake for years they still look like stockies. A fair few VS fish paticually the ones that go real big dont look much different to Fenland strain. That said if they keep people away from waters I fish there doing something useful.
  14. Yes I agree fish been stocked at 30lb plus is ridiculous but there nothing we can do to change it. All you can do is fish whare your happy and let others do the same.its sad the way things have gone. I used to get to get wound up by wronguns but now Ive took on board the veiw that it doesn' really effect me and that I havnt got the right to tell other people what they enjoy is wrong.
  15. I'm not arguing the rights and wrongs of strains. I have my opinion but it's each to his own. Wouldnt fish for any home fen, avenue or any water of that type. But to make a statement such as fish are been hunted to death and that captain jack should be moved because its caught regularly you carnt just apply that logic to wronguns and not to other carp up and down the country. The parrot in wasing was caught almost every month and weather there angled l for or not they don't live for ever. Big fast growers live fast die young. I don't like it but it is what is.
  16. There fish up and down the country get caught just as much as captain Jack. I don't agree with the whole Israeli wronguns been records. But I dont care that much either. It's going to happen so er or later. Big fish are greedy fish and the captain Jack situation is different to the big rig situation. It won' die jst because of angling pressure it will die young because of the strain of carp it is. The Big plated in st johns gets as much stick as any carp but it' still going. There' s a fish in a lake I used to fish that' gets caught 10 times some years then only gets caught twice a year some years. As for public opinion they couldn' t care less that otters are ripping them apart most people don't care. You say there to many reports of fish been hunted death care to give a few examples?
  17. Really bad PR for Reuben Eaton that' for sure. If they come back with different resualts for the scales im just going to think they are trying to save face. If they they concur the scales were out I'll think fair play for been honest but you reputation been damage. They carnt win.
  18. That' the one mate. Yea mate I'll chuck some info your way once I've had what I want from here. From what I've seen I think I've now had around half the stock just need the big mirror I seen earlier in the year and a couple off commons and I'll be off to another untapped gem not to far away.
  19. Yea mate I was told no problems in recent years. Ive just had 22lb common the last two sessions on here were bang on conditions caught nothing. Weather on paper at least is terrible atm and ive had one.lol. possibly never been caught before at very least hasn' t been caught much. Happy days.
  20. Yea was temped to have a ticket on there but heard few things. I've been told it' ok by a lad I met on ma travels who fishes there. So not sure but like you say got to no motor is safe. Some nice fish in there for money aswel.
  21. The lake that' bit ropey with the car the name of said lake doesn' start with a D does it.
  22. Defo few down your way boys that nene valley full of lakes that are off the beaten track. Otters are the problem though. Im fishing a lake right now that is unknown. Only angler I've seen here was a tench fisherman in the summer had it to myself all year. It's a stunning mere tucked away someware in Shropshire. Blanked last couple of sessions but was catching consistently until end of oct. Hopefully break the blank spell tonight but with conditions at the moment could be a big ask. I no more lakes that are unfished than lakes that are fisheries. Most anglers are like sheep crowd around busy day tickets or syndicates. Most people are surrounded by untapped potential but majority if people are stuck in there comfort zone. River, canals farm ponds big lakes sneaky gusting type lakes or just over looked places. There loads out there. Don' get me wrong I do fish busy lakes aswel but I much prefer places off the beaten track with a bit of mystery.
  23. Guess this falls under etiquette, people that openly talk about club lakes on Facebook most decent club lakes have been ruined thanks to people on fb. Also people who post under other people's capture pictures with the same fish trying to get another little moment of glory.
  24. Agree with some points but if on a small water if you had etiquette you wouldn' fish oppsite somebody so shouldnt matter if they fish to far margin or not. Who ever there first should have priority. Don't get not walking into to somebody's pitch? It depends what lake I'm on as to weather id be annoyed about rig check.
  25. Maggots banned on linch all year. There banned on some lakes because people go stupid with them. There also banned because lake owners want there fish to be fed on boilies rather than maggots threw out the summer.
