    @yonny I've noticed mate. Been roving my waterways recently and other than some nice roach it's been baron. I did see and feed some chub in the summer but I can't locate them now. Also tried piking, both deadbaits and spinners to little joy. As I said before the clubs that did have stretches on their books have given them up due to predation.

    Nor do I. What happens to the food chain if fish from the riverways dissapear also? I'm sure there are negative effects

    In reply to your last paragraph. I have pictures of carp that are no longer with us due to otters. πŸ˜’. Proper sorry state of affairs mate

    I was walking the dog round a certain park lake I've poached on occasion one night. A fellow angler was there and asked me what all the eyes were on the island. I then proceeded on telling him that there were no fish left and that they were otters. Wary of humans yes, put off by them in the vicinity no. This was a very built up area with lots of human traffic. I suppose they've grown used to us

    eBay

    Forever using the bay to part with gear and find new bits. Cheapest I could find the drennan mini ultralite feeder online new for was 140. Bid a tackle firm on eBay 110 and they accepted. The thing that blows my mind is that garbage people will buy on eBay. I've listed old used gym trainers and they've sold for Β£50. Who buys this stuff lol. Crazy ppl

    What is your newest purchase

    Yeah I can't lie. I got a fair bit of kit for a varied spectrum of angling. My newest being the drennan mini 9-10ft feeder which is the nuts. @Highy and same as you mate. I often part with gear via eBay to get new stuff

    What is your newest purchase

    The question is, does all your new gear result in more fish highy mate? Or do your have a fishing gear fetish? Lol

    Yeah I'd have to agree. Awful state of affairs. Mr Wilson knew. I recall him talking about predation and other factors that have killed our water ways many years ago

    Mate that is depressing. I was on a local riverway today roving with a light quiver. Looking for chub. It's the water I mentioned the other day that clubs gave up due to otters feasting on its stock. Need I say not even a bite. Truly baron. A dog walker passed me and we got talking. He said he used to see carcasses regularly on his walks but not anymore. The otters have had the lions share and moved on it would seem. The future really does look grim. I've seen carcasses round my local reservoir too ,of decent fish . Three to date. They've cleared out two park ponds I used to frequent. Angling in the uk could be left in a sorry state.

    What line of work you looking for nick?
  20. As I continue to endeavour into a variety of fishing, I'm looking for a good small bait runner. The ones I have are quite big and heavy and more suited to large water fishing for carp or pike. Does anyone know the lightest baitrunner on the market and if there's any around the 2000/3000 spool size? Cheers
  21. Dannygooner

    Lightest smallest baitrunner

    Indeed that is small. And they do still make the longbow it would seem. That's a great help , cheers. This is the type of work I'm using them for, feeder work on the rivers. Lots of roving , hence the smaller the better

    Lightest smallest baitrunner

    Good shout but at 405 grams that's quite heavy, thus I'm thinking quite big. I'm really looking for the lightest smallest good baitrunners possible. Yonnys mention are coming in a bit smaller and lighter but again, no front drag. It seems small baitrunners options are slim

    How much longer can this go on? I know many clubs have now given up their river stretches as the rivers have been pillaged. Without being overdramatic, but is fishing outside the confines of a fenced of mud pool going to become totally fruitless. I'm fishing the rivers near me currently and it's no easy going. For any species. Fish of notable size are few and far between. A lady came out of her house backing on to the river last week and told me she sees different groups of otters pretty regularly on her land. And used to find a multitude of species half eaten on her property. It's really frustrating. I'd like to know who's bright idea it was to reintroduce this vermin. Why arnt the environment agency addressing this? A cull has got to be enforced surely before it's too late

    More exploration of what the otters havnt yet eaten in my local rivers . Before they do get eaten. Then when the river season closes, find some reservoir monsters.
