  1. HI, ive recently put some carp spirit 30lb braid on my spod reel. Ive gone to attach the shock leader 50lb Nash Braid and i lost a marker float - It flew off with the knot failing. Ive tried back to back grinners and mahin knot and same result now losing 3 marker floats! Ive just re tied at home the Mahin 3 times and pulled the line really hard and thought i had a secure knot. i carried on pulling and after a few seconds the carp spirit 30lb braid just pulled through the knot. Its really waxy braid. Im sure it cant be my knot tying ability. i have no issues with other knots? I th
  2. Hi, Is there anyone giving casting tuition in the Yorkshire area? I think i could do with some help to get better distance! cheers
  3. Hi Guys, i bought 3 new Shimano 6000 XT RB Baitrunners Earlier this year. I have a problem with 1 that it keeps shutting the bail arm mid cast. they will still be under warranty but before i send it back could it be a simple fix? Thanks in advance as a real pain when the lead smashes in the water straight in front of you when casting!
  4. Hi Guys, im booked on at Rising Sun Fisheries, York at the end of June and ive never fished it so want to get the most out of the session, Has anyone got any advice for fishing it? Rig type, Hook size, bait size and flavour? Im on for 48hrs so can experiment a bit but would love to hit the ground running- cheers Richard
  5. Hi, Im looking for some rear rods rests for my rod pod? Ive seen a lot on line and they look cheap and poorly made? has any used any really good ones? cheers
  6. Hi Guys, Im of for a day on a local Commie water tomorrow and unsure if the Pellet waggler will work if its a bit cold and no fish higher up in the water. ive got a 9ft Sonik Pellet Waggler rod. Do you think it will handle a 20g method feeder on the cast? Its a fairly sensitive tip so i dont think ill have a rpoblem spotting bites.. i just dont want to crack the rod tip off!! cheers
  7. How many rods is considered excessive!!?? ha ha
  8. T Thanks for the advice, The Daiwa look nice but i fancy a rear drag. I think im going to go for the XT RB. ill have a play with them in the house and if no good ill send them back. cheers Richard
  9. Morning all im thinking of getting 2 new baitrunners. to compliment my 9ft 2.5lb Greys GT2's I've been looking at the Shimano's 6000 DL RB 6000 XT RB 6000 X Areo RA i only cast 50 - 70 yards so i dont think i need anything bigger and also want a good balanced feel for the rod. Has anyone got experience of these reels? thanks Guys.
  10. thanks for all the advice guys. Keeps me thinking of fishing even though we cant !
  11. Great point salokcinnodrog. My usual carp fishing is with 9ft 2.5lb Greys Rod. i thought something smaller would be good for margins, stalking, surface and travel/holidays etc. Greys do a 7ft stalker rod at 2.75lb TC. https://www.tackleuk.co.uk/Shop/RodsStalkingRods/Greys-Stalking-Rod-7ft.htm?utm_source=google-shopping&utm_medium=cpc&of_tid=MFRWG5B5GI2DIJTGMVSWISLEHUYSM4DSN5SESZB5GEYDIMJW&adGroupId=60238293762&device=c&gclid=CjwKCAjwvtX0BRAFEiwAGWJyZPAuVqwIuy2bEEF_EnHoBgOK0q1oLtPBB9EESq-P-Rh-MBkpkcT7bhoCTXAQAvD_BwE it just seems crazy to me to h
  12. Hi, im looking to pick up a stalking rod and reel but unsure what to go for. i will generally fish close in so am thinking of a 6 footer. various Test Curves are giving me a head ache..
