  1. Firstly, I could do with some background info on bobbins and bite indication. For example, what do you use for short range, medium distance and long range fishing? How are they set? What about weather conditions such as wind? Tight lines vs slack lines?! Give me all the info you have.... Is there anything that can be done to help indicate lateral movement on the line? Secondly, what system or set up should I be looking at to suit the situations you have presented?! Go on, recommend something for me Tight lines to those out over the weekend!

    Caulking gun Vs boilie gun

    I suspect that's where things started out before various companies started to market them as angling equipment. I'll be doing the same myself bud so thumbs up from me!

    Any other tips for lightening up

    ^^^ This (but without the blanking )

    Any other tips for lightening up

    I just don't like the idea of cracking my head on the internal pitch point on the brolly. It's also 100 quid more than a good quality tarp and 3x2.2m tarp that comes in at 1.1kg. Only need one support and a few pegs. Still doing research if there is anything better but 130 for a brolly when I already have a bivvy seems a bit of a splash of cash to me.

    I'm seriously considering some kind of tarp for keeping dry on day sessions and getting in the summer over night sessions. 3 or 4 pegs and one or two poles to keep the front up. Nice and quick to take down, bungee to a rod bag and move swims

    2019 Plans

    Goals for this year are to just get back into the swing of things. I've given myself some targets just to spice things up and I'd be happy to come close to any one of them. Going to try and get on a syndicate that I like the look of - big reservoir and some nice fish in there for sure. Start off trying to just get into something for a few sessions on Oak at Old Mill Lakes first. May have a crack at Willow. But more importantly, above anything else, spend some time tooling about on the bank and winding my brother up. Been 10 years since we've been carping together!

    Congrats to all of you mate!

    Already got a bivvy mate but a brolly would certainly makes sense! Will figure out what it all comes in as and how to pack when it's in front of me and I've got a few small bags kicking about I can use to get started. Not rushing into a decision just yet on it all.

    I never eat much and don't drink much tea so if I pack it right then it can stay in the bottom for the most part. Will try and pack it right so I shouldn't need much towards the bottom in a rush. Maybe the ground sheet folded up as a separation layer if the bivvy is coming out as they don't fit in the same bag very well (* me on a bank swearing at it as I'm trying to pack it in a gale). I can't see me needing the outer skin until Oct/Nov time. Just trying to keep things the same as much as possible, rivers, pits, res, day or night. That way I can sneak in more hours on the bag and less hours at home pillocking about with this stuff. ETTO

    Out of interest, what did you have in your bag? For sure I'm open to suggestions So far I think mine will have..... (bottom to top) Sleeping bag Dry clothes if I think I need it Brewing up stuff and snap Powerbank and tunes (I promise to by quiet ) Camera gear Buzz bars Alarms Carp care (should probably just go under the sleeping bag - blankety blank) Catapult/Throwing Stick/Spomb Bait (mesh boilie bags/glugs/pop ups/zigs Leads Rig box That's off the top of my head. Can't think what else right now, too late in the day for me.

    Recommend some rods for me...

    Again, thanks mate. For now I need to get into some fishing before I make any more rod choices I think. Will have a read through for my next set of decision making though

    Yeah, I've been umming and ahhing about the second spool but I think for sure some with fluorocarbon on for the shallows will be needed in the arsenal, mainly my snagging.

    I'm tend to agree mate but I think it depends on the places I'm fishing as well. If you end up in a rainy October trying to drag a haul the barrow through a load of mud it might be easier to walk. Stiles being the other obstacle that springs to mind. I used to fish some big reservoirs and there was a lot of log fall across paths, parts where you needed to find a path and parts where is was waterlogged by a couple of inches. Of course YMMV, even day to day. I'm certainly not disagreeing though, with or without a bivvy and bed chair on on the right water fishing straight off the barrow could well be the quickest way of reeling in and moving on.

    It's been a big week for me stocking up with t'other brother to get into carping: So far.... 2 Shimano XTE-A 10000 3 Daiwa Mission DF 1 Daiwa Mission Spod/Marker Shimano Aero Specimen 18lb line Abode Carp Chair 4 Titanium bank sticks Sonik SKX Bite Alarms 3 BZS Aluminium butt rests Next in line is some light weight buzz bars, end tackle, bait and some cooking gear and trying to find a compact rod holdall (maybe the Trakker 5 rod) and Daiwa Mission 110l pack. Unless I have the bivvy or bed chair out then I should be as mobile as possible - so I can nick those fishing when everyone else is trying to get packed up. Still not decided if I'm going with or without barrow - maybe as the mood takes me....

    To be honest they were on my list first time around until I went through the chart. Yeah, tough to dispute the Daiwa sensor clear to be honest. It was springy on my Shimano which put me off it. You generally fishing murky or clear waters? I remember the Sensor sinks alright. I think it was maybe the line diameter was marginally higher than the Shimano which put me off it?
