  1. Hey buddy! This is the place for questions! Many times have I been helped out by the decent folk here.
  2. Well, I didn't get a sniff of a bite. Saw very little in the way of breaching fish or activity and the damned goose meant I got an awful night's kip anyway. I don't think I'll be back. Like you say, it looks the absolute nuts but if there's nowt there then there's nowt there.
  3. Haha oh well. It can only go so badly. That's what I'm telling myself. Taking the Mrs with a rod for silverfish so I'm sure I'll get a few perch and call it a success if nothing else.
  4. Yeah can't complain at twenty quid. Untoward activities could be anything eh? I'm not very experienced with gravel pits - an absolute novice right now as this will be the first - so I have no clue what to do.
  5. I notice there's been no movement on this thread for five years! I'm going tomorrow and was wondering if anybody can recommend / review?
  6. Afternoon all, Hoping to get my first overnight session going soon and was wondering if there were any good lakes for a novice to catch big fish on. I'm based in Leicester but happy to travel a distance for the right place. Something picturesque that allows overnight. Any information gratefully received. TIA
  7. I was wondering what advice everyone has for a rank beginner. So far my rig has been set up as follows - Mainline threaded through a lead - swivel - pre tied hair rig. The lead is freely moving on the mainline with a swivel bead preventing rubbing on on the knot. Massively basic, I think, are there any guidelines or layouts I need to know. I have some leadcore leaders but no idea how to use them.
  8. The spin doctor worked well on one reel. Unfortunately it's resting at the bottom of Foremark Reservoir because I didn't tie it to the second reel well. Caught 4 at a lake near me over the weekend. Ledger and sweetcorn. Zero bites on my hair rig, however.
  9. I've just bought a spin doctor. I'll go and yak it out over long distance in Field before I go out fishing next - hopefully this sorts out the line twist. Can anyone direct me to some pictures of how to set up the terminal tackle? Like, main line, swivel, ledger set up etc.
  10. Oh yeah absolutely. Just didn't know if it was an easy fix. Fingers crossed its all sorted now.
  11. I'm going to set up with a hair rig attached to the main line with a swivel. Big chunk of spam for bait. That sound about right?
  12. Next up - work out why the hell I'm not catching anything haha
  13. No. Took it back to the shop so the chap could have a look for me. Needs straightening out. He's advised casting it really far and bringing it back in a few times
  14. Been to speak to the chap at my local tackle shop and he's advised me to stretch it out and it should re-condition the line. Been and hand stretched it. Seems better.
