  1. My day kit comprises of a Korum compact ruckie, Korum speed mat and chub chair, (or my Avid Transit super- Lo) bait bag, quiver with 2 carp rods/reels, net, shelter and sling... Everything that I need goes into or onto the ruckie and quiver... I even get a flask and a sarnie in my bait bag as well as me bait... gotta say if I'm doing a night or longer I'll use a barrow, as I only have one bedchair and a Nash wideboy ain't fer carrying if you are the wrong side of 60๐Ÿ˜Ž
  2. Mitchell 400's and yes they are the Sharpe's
  3. Just for Crusian...
  4. Have a look at the Korum compact rucksacks... some chairs clip onto the ruckie.... the chub does and so does their Korum square leg chair and their ultra lite Aeronium (I have a square leg chair it's not too light as it's got loads of preston attachments on it but on its own it's okay... (Just found that the JRC X-Lite chair also clips onto the Korum Ruckies)
  5. Tonkin cane... about 14' long made by Milwards with a Dr Cane modified top section to enable the use of elastic
  6. bit of pole fishing tomorrow... and yes it will be cane๐Ÿ˜Ž
  7. One of the Carbon lads brought that along... god he got so much ripping he left it there... its part of the scenery now
  8. Old Skool = Old's Cool...๐Ÿ˜Ž
  9. It was a tip to mid section bend.. It is a fairly through action, but there is a huge store of power in the middle part of the rod and butt( they are 2 piece by the way for those that don't know)... I have had to bully a 23lber out of a lily bed on one with no problems and they cast light leads very nicely (2oz leads max) as long as you don't try casting as you would a carbon rod... you just need to know their limitations... Sadly no prawns this time.... I was on a candy nut crush snowman and a simple inline running lead
  10. 3 kilos Nash Candy nut wossname and 2 match packs of worm... 1 dendra and 1 lobs... forgot me bait box so I have to go back for me maggots today... weathers looking good all week so a bit of everything I hope
  11. Those were the days... Nostalgia ain't what it used to be๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Ž
  12. Used to be a couple of rolls of silver paper on a couple of yer mum's knitting needles... hi-tech in those days or if you were poor, or not as inventive, a ball of bread wrapped on the line...
  13. True but they were getting a bit crackely and a mate said that they get that way when the battery contacts get loose or corroded, so they are being replaced...
  14. I have a pair of optonics but they are having the battery contacts repaired otherwise they are the usual alarms
  15. Monday's toys... hope you like 'em
  16. Damn right there Yonny.... been there, done that... thankfully I saw the light and returned to simply "Fishing"
  17. Rather than wanting sponsorship at 15 years old, I think I'd be honing my craft and making sure that my methods etiquette and approach were spot on... join a club or syndi, do some work parties start a rig clinic on youtube and LEARN about fishing, fish, and their environment... too many kids want it all too soon, and at the end of the day sponsorship is EARNED, not given out like sweeties... sorry if this sounds harsh, but there are thousands like youself and you've gotta go the extra mile to stand out above all the other lads and lasses wanting sponsorship...
  18. Thanks.... The rods are Sharpe's Scottie 9'3" resin impregnated split cane and the reels are Moredex Merlin's
  19. Cheers chaps... good to get a fish on the old beansticks... My Young Apprentice was aghast that I could winkle one out on cane and pin whilst he blanked with his hi-tech stuff๐Ÿ˜Ž
  20. Looks like an older fish... especially with that little deformity on it's shoulder... nice scales though and not a mark in its mouth
  21. got up this morning to this... Set up these... Caught this... 20lb 1oz.... the only bite of the day..... I'm a happy chappy
  22. So you'll be trying to get a brother for him at some point....? and possibly calling him Jake....????? bit disappointed in just a "Mat Shot" Yonny๐Ÿคฃ
  23. Give it a couple of weeks and Angling Direct will put in a bid for it๐Ÿ‘Ž
  24. Had this old chap on Sunday... 11lb even... only fish caught on the lake... the rod in the foreground is a Sharpe's 9'3" and the reel was a Mitchell 400 Bait, double 10mm cubes of meat on a size 6... Nice sunny day, but a bit of a cool wind... only bite of the day
