    No, just a rock. Most of the shoreline and the water's here are rocky.

    The mesh laundry bags is what I use for drying boilies a bit. Have a store here called Dollar Tree that has them for $1(everything there is a dollar or less). Works well and FAR cheaper than air dry bags I've seen.
  3. Gardner hydro-tuff. Where I'm at, there is a abundance of not just gravel, but good-sized rocks, some very large. But even the HT gets pretty chewed up, so I have to cut off line, and even change line often. Also have to go using long Kryston snag leaders(at least 3'), and tubing if I can get my line through 3-4ft of it. Even with that, have to often cut line off.

    Nice. Buy'em and paint them black.

    Bait for different species

    That's what I was thinking. Really, I think he's just been where a lot of mirrors are around.

    Cream cajouser flavour

    The only thing I found of it was it in a spray, combined with wonderfruit(wonderfruit probably being the dominate flavor). And in bait that has already been made. Know these aren't what you're looking for, but hope its some help.

    I can't really help that much since I'm not in the UK, but I think it would be a good idea to list what you're mainly been using as of late.

    What is your newest purchase

    Actually, that's a quality I'd look for when snag fishing, to keep the rod from slipping whatsoever on a take, as it seems you found with them. Of course, wouldn't want them damaging the rods, maybe possible to modify them? Not so much as to lose the benefit during snag fishing, but where they won't cause damage, and not really difficult to get your rod out of them?

    Shows off the carp fishing in the US, in the video's case, Michigan.

    Tried them out, fantasic so far. Really have a nice feel to them. Got one fish, small, but the rods worked well, fight's the fish well under tip, but casts very well too. Really nice rods thus far. On the reels, very nice. Do wish they had more than one line clip though, only fault I have with them.

    Planning to give them a go shortly, whenever daylight breaks(just 5am here as of this post). Will report how they perform.

    Rod Help

    Thanks to all who replied. That's a relief. With American rods, I've never seen any thing like it. Also the previous carp rods wasn't like that. And when looking at rods online, the spigot isn't exactly something I pay attention to. Thanks everyone.

    Rod Help

    Recently bought two 3Ib tc NGT Dynamic 12' rods. Seem rather nice, MUCH thinner and lighter than my old fibreglass ones, despite being a stiffer, heavier action rod. But a problem I have encountered is that the rods won't go completely together at the spigot. As far as I can get it still leaves 1/2 to 3/4 of a inch to go. Now I have heard of this problem before. One solution I've read is to sand the male section a bit with sandpaper so the female section will fit over it, but I'm rather uneasy with this. Any other solutions?
