  1. the korda kurv is a 'big' hook for it's size, the 12 is the equivalent of a 10 in most hook sizes so it's not that small, only what most would use on a zig anyway, in fact it's bigger than the size 10 Drennan super specialist I use for my own zigs it matches perfectly for a 10mm popup, a maplepea or a chickpea. they are strong too and I've had a few 30's on them over the years, I've not had any trouble when I've had to clamp down during a fight either
  2. I do a lot of fishing with 10mm boilies and with particles like maples which are slightly smaller at about 8-9mm, I use a size 12 korda kurv hook for mine
  3. thanks mate, I appreciate the feedback, I do try to make each one better but it's hard work, you start off with an idea of how you want things to go then you go fishing and film it, trouble is your fishing trips never pan out as you expect them too and you end up with something completely different to your original idea 🤣 hmmm, not sure I agree with that yonny, perhaps in video format from the big names but a lot of youtubers are still do it and it's completely out of control on fb and Instagram
  4. it's up near me this place but never fished it, from what I've been told about the place it's an overstocked commercial so pretty much anything will work
  5. happy Christmas all santa left me a couple of pairs of thermal socks which have already proved useful, he also left a wad full of cash so I can get what I want, so far my shopping list has 2 midi spombs, a collapsible water bucket for photo time, new spool of 20lb whiplash, a baiting pole, a new landing net and a cradle shopping day is tomorrow
  6. I spend most of my time on youtube too these days, there are very few, if any, of these gripes in my videos, little or no annoying music, i'll never kiss a fish, no annoying sayings like pukka or unit, I dislike tackle and bait companies and their social media advertising tactics so no endless plugs, in fact my channel is dedicated to doing things on the cheap and using alternatives if you haven't seen any of my stuff before just search for 'mark carp', apologies for the plug but i'm sure there's something on my channel you'll find useful
  7. been a member on here for many years but I don't post much these days, mainly due to time constraints😉 thanks for the feedback mate, i'm made up you took something from the vids and caught, that's the kind of feedback that makes it worthwhile doing them👍😎
  8. I always use it within 24hrs of cooking because I like it fresh, additive wise just save your money and don't bother adding anything. I do like to use it with hemp, the hemp/maize combo is a cracker😉
  9. I have fox halo and a petzl tikka 2, both are very good so i'd say go with the cheapest of the two 😉
  10. just found an email for Liverpool leads mate its mikes.leads@hotmail.com mh leads changes the privacy of his fb page now and again, I think he takes it private when he has a lot on or needs time to do something else in life I guess?. for all the Instagram spam liverpools leads put out the only thing I could find was the email, no phone number or anything?, either way that's the email he uses so drop him a line 😉
  11. my mate buys from ian carter and rates him highly😉 there is also mh leads based in warrington, they are on facebook, also Liverpool carp leads, they are on Instagram a lot, no idea if they have a facebook page but the leads look as good as anyone elses, lets be honest it's not easy to cock them up🙂lol
  12. a bit expensive but I like the haiths jumbo tigers😉
  13. a deeper is ideal for you then mate, I fish 6hrs a week usually on a Saturday afternoon, I have to fit in somewhere amongst bivvy anglers with far more time than me then try and nick a bite, with the odds stacked very much against me due to limited time, I grab any edge I can with both hands🙂
  14. I've got one, it's very handy, no point in flogging it with a marker rod when a deeper will give you so much more in a fraction of the time😉 I bought a dedicated little android tablet to go with mine so I don't have to use my phone plus I've got a slightly bigger screen to look at which is handy if you need reading glasses like me🙂
  15. thanks finchey, i'd like to think there's some useful stuff on there, i'm not the best at it, there's no crappy carp team stuff, endless plugging of gear or sponsorship begging 😉 I hate drum and bass so there's none of that and I fish alone and on limited time so they aren't very 'arty' either😁
