    What is your newest purchase

    Purchased myself a couple free spirit 1lb tc rods as I'm off to the broads to do some specimen hunting. Wanted something light for a while for a while to target other species on local rivers. These look the nuts, ideal for the job and were in fantastic nick second hand. Also got myself a daiwa 1657dm reel for some float fishing. Had to purchase another chair too. Put on a few pounds lately and I went through mine mid sesh a few weeks back. I've never thought to look but a lot of chairs are max weight 100kg. As was mine, I weigh 125kg, gravity won. It's a pain as I like a light chair to rove but they just can't handle me anymore lol

    Perception

    I also have the same feeling. When I started back fishing last year my kit was minimal but the buzz was massive. I often lug loads of new gear back to the car and think did I enjoy that any more than I used to. I think the whole carp fishing scene has become a little cheesey. The what's fashionable element in its rise in popularity a contributor in this. The amount of young men I see on the bank in a Alan Blair lookalike outfit always makes me laugh. I had one boy come to my swim and tell me, " if it's not Nash I don't use it" the other day lol. Then walked back to his swim with his stereo on blast catching no fish. Theres a word I'd like to use for this boy but it's not permitted on here. Like you crucian, for me it's location over fish. As far away from the other fisherman if possible

    what rule did he actually break? I've not seen him swear nor be offensive. Antagonistic maybe but that's subjective. What's wrong with a good old debate? I'm not being pedantic with this message either but i actually enjoyed reading his debates with people and at the end of most generally there was a conclusion, they begged to differ but oh well. Come on fellas, this is all a bit silly really. You don't get on , not everyone is going to. Doesn't mean he's has to be banned does it? Unless there is an outright breach of rules? I've not seen any , maybe I'm wrong? #justice4cm 😂😂😂

    I liked cm and think banning is a bit extreme. He kept within the rules even if in heated debate? And I've seen a few of these with him. Enjoyable reading nonetheless. He was a prolific poster and replied to a few of my queries. Helpful advice too. I hope he gets unbanned and comes back soon

    Fishing for Love

    I use a few runs waters. They are like my therapy to deal with blanks elsewhere lol. But in regards to previous comments on this thread, they don't give me that feeling. U know what I mean. I don't think I've had that feeling since I was a kid fishing abandoned gravel pits and guesting on estate lakes. Ardleigh gives me a feeling. But I'm yet to find a place that draws me back in like places of childhood. I'm sure I'll find it eventually. I think I have an unrealistic aim of a secret unfished lake in the back of my mind. Probably need to shake that off 😂

    They say no dogs on there , but I've walked the dogs there plenty of times and the bailiff was cool. Just a heads up

    Fishing for Love

    ''Tis more the unofficial 15 men bivvied up down a bank sort of thing that seems common place I meant mate. And yes I have. Though I've not bought a season ticket as yet as getting chances to do nights have been slim. Days I've done a few. It really is quite nice over there I have to say. If seclusion is what you sort then you can't go far wrong. It just still feels somewhat of a mammoth task over there for me considering I'm still quite new to this type of fishing. But the place holds a certain ambience. Some parts of it more than others. I know fish are coming out of there. I havnt caught though. You should go for a walk round parts of it. See what you think.

    I also blame Nash for every other plonker on the bank dressing like a cardboard cut out Alan Blair. What on earth is that all about. I reckon they pack their Alan Blair hat before they pack bait

    Fishing for Love

    Agree with the above about the other anglers situation. What's this "social" stuff about these days in fishing? If I want a social ill meet my mates down the boozer. If I go fishing I hope not to see another person let alone fisherman if possible. Call me anti social ( I'm not in normal day to day life I promise lol) but I go fishing to get away from it all and to tune in with my surroundings. Nothing worse than arriving at a water to see its full of anglers. I've been known to turn back and go home. Like bc said, weekdays are always the aim now. I blame Nash for this social nonsense 😂

    Reporting Fish theft

    Its disgusting. There's a few lakes I know like your water park. Where a few years back you'd see kids getting into angling, catching their first fish. Now there is literally no fish in there. They've cleaned it out. I still see the odd fisherman there but don't have the heart to tell them there is no fish left. Open door immigration eh. good old eu 😒

    Reporting Fish theft

    I've pulled two long lines out of one lake I fish this year already. The Eastern Europeans have decimated the stock. Two polaks got caught barbequeing a large carp there on the bank. It went to court and they received a minimal fine.
