  1. There is still 1 or 2 who will help you out at the Wigan A.D...Tom young lad and a older woman (lady) who really does know her stuff...every time I've been in and with little en she always asks are we ok found what you need and she helped me out once or twice. πŸ‘
  2. Yeh true...same happened with mine...think it was family run at 1st (North West Angling Centre) was an old church turned into a decent size shop. Good staff back then, but now 1 or 2 have been kept on and every time I've been it's kids running the shop.
  3. Just seen that Eric's Angling have merged with Angling Direct... Also trying to source Isotopes for a friend for his Rod Butts ...but can only see that Nash really do them.
  4. I was actually toying whether to go back in and make them aware...but then thought of a GOOD SAVING...put it towards next year's water ticket. Don't think it will stay that bright for long.
  5. FUMING is not the word...rang my local A.D to see if my order was in store...after all the rigmoral...basicaly the order not processed and has been missed...luckily I got a refund. Soooo...on my way home I chanced Go Outdoors...they didn't have the Sonik Spod Reel but the basic 8000....so i picked up the 8000 reel...2 spools of Braid...2 lots NGT distance sticks (1 for mate)...proceeded to till. After putting it through she replied Β£35...????????? She handed me all the gear so I walked to car....looked at receipt to see if half price...she had NOT put the reel through...saving of Β£45. So now ordered 2 x Spombs & Spomb Float off eBay.
  6. Ordered 3 x Isotopes for my Fox Swingers...3rd swinger (orange) ordered. Isotopes from ICE@TOPE off eBay. Blue Red Orange 3mm x 15mm...might be about snug as the Fox ISOTOPES are 2mm x 12mm but I've triple checked and they should fit...... Tomorrow I should have my Sonik Spod Reel, Spomb n Spomb Float & Distance Sticks.
  7. Some absolute Stunners there @chillfactor...fish of dreams for some people (MEπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚). Keep it up pal...how long left ? πŸ‘πŸŽ£
  8. I'm no Wigan fan πŸ’©...more on my boxing... Get some were for us all...
  9. JRC Contact Spod Rod 5.5lb...Sonik Vader X Spot Reel.
  10. Every kids party is planned for 10am Saturday mornings (in my book)...
  11. They certainly have...but the Mrs usually has jobs at weekends now she has finished her hobby for the season...but on a plus note she can start taking the lad to his footy games and hopefully some autumn/winter mornings for me 🀞🀞
  12. Seems to be the Month now October...be another 2 weeks me then a 48hr on 1st Novemeber.
  13. I'm Lancashire (Wigan) too...i look within 30 mile radius...Shpock, Gumtree, Ebay. It's like the saying..."Buy cheap Buy twice". Go for something decent.
  14. Never done clothes...heard of doing luggage with the Spray Fabsil. Would it be any clothes or to Re-Proof waterproofs?
  15. I have always used Fabsil Gold...not just for waterproofing, as Gold also stops the fading due to the Sun's UV rays. You can use it straight in neat, but I've also used 5ltr Fabsil to 1ltr water. Make sure it's a good dry day to let it all take affect. Personally I use a BIG sponge and work my way from top to bottom, like washing ure car. But yeh, make sure bivvy/brolly is clean and dry before starting.
  16. I am now really REGRETTING selling the spod setup...this is something I am now going to get my teeth into more... Need to look for another setup now (preferblay SONIK) and distance sticks. Clipping up...hitting the Spot...BOSH πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  17. Yeh that's it...there simular though...think ures may have a bigger peak and mine has 1 more rib.
  18. My Mate wanted 1 too...think I got 1 of the last too... There some good buys on the sites...
  19. The brolly was 2nd hand... The bivvy was off Amazon...i think @smufter also got 1 ??? Carpzone there self is 279.99... It is an awsome bivvy but hard work on ure own...
  20. My Mate was takin Mickey saying I look miserable this morning...(4.30 alarm something do with that) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  21. Ended up with just the 2..πŸŽ£πŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸ‘
  22. For days and quick sessions = Brolly for me. Nights I use my 2 man bivvy as 90% of time little lad comes too. My brolly is a Fox Supa Brolly mk2 60" Β£50 off a mate but no front or groundsheet...buying a wrap soon though. My 2man Bivvy is a Carpzone All Seasons 2man Β£125 (full system) Groundsheet Wrap and 2 lots of pegs. It mahoosive.
