    I've not managed to get out for a while due to work and family commitments. So I had a Saturday off for a change so I went piking and carp spotting. Blanked on both counts but not fussed just nice to be out fishing.
  2. New to carping

    Hi and welcome along mate.
  3. A Bit Of Interactive Bank Chat

    Good luck mate. Hope you get a pull or two after spending the time prepping your swims. Hope the fishing gods are on your side.
  4. My dog, Arthur.

    What a stunning looking fella. So sorry to hear about your sad loss. I can only imagine how gut wrenching it must of felt.
  5. A lovely video to pass the time....

    Thanks Smufter really enjoyed that. I've been watching quite a few videos just recently and this is by far the best. Terrys passion for this sport of our's is so addictive, it just makes you want to go fishing. I will definitely be searching out some more of his films. Thanks again.
  6. Plans for 2018 🎣🎣

    I'm just going to be fishing my local club water, some very nice and stunning looking carp but quite a hard water so I can see a lot of blanks but that doesn't bother me at all. There's always that chance of a good un, that will keep me going. If I get desperate to catch I can always have a day on a commercial.
  7. Same here have done as long as I can remember, which is a long time. Don't even think about it anymore.

  10. Brolly systems opinions

    It is a brolly system I'm after. I suppose it's a question of which is the best for all year round use. Having a bivvy and a brolly isn't really a choice for me so I'll spend some time and a bit more research before I part with my cash. Thank for opinion yonny much appreciated.
  11. Brolly systems opinions

    Hi yonny. Been having a look at these they do look smart. My Nash 60" oval is on it last legs so I was thinking about one of these. But I was wondering have you used yours in the winter or just the summer. If you haven't used in the winter in your opinion would you say it was suitable for winter use or more of a summer shelter. I don't fish in storm conditions but I do fish in strong winds and heavy rain. Thanks Keith.

    This may be a daft question but why the washing up liquid?
  13. Some of mine

    You've got a house full and it looks like they like there homely comforts.
  14. Last big feed

    I'm new to this carp fishing but the way I look at it is the same as all the other fishing I've done over the many years. Just get out there enjoy your fishing and if you catch it's a bonus.
  15. Wrightington - Old Pond

    I don't know for sure but i read somewhere, l think it was another forum but I can't for the life me remember were because I read that much on the net I forget were I see stuff. But I do remember reading that the old pond is a private syndicate of 5 friends of the owner of the house you can see from the road. The larger lakes on the other side of the road is private no fishing at all. Many years ago it used to be on the Wigan ticket I do remember that as a kid. I think I may of seen it on the maggot drowners forum. Have a look on there mate you might find out more information.
