  1. i'm a warrington member, the club has some good waters but an awful lot of members, the vast majority are good lads but you do get the odd idiot who leaves their litter behind, on the whole it's a decent club
  2. generally i prepare my own but for the odd trips here and there its easier to buy them ready done from the shop, i've used dynamite and bait tech for tinned tigers and they both work very well👍
  3. i like a combination of hemp and maize for winter, i can't put my finger on why but they go very well together👍
  4. most people seem to like the hot red one but i've done well with the standard green, it's a great bait, really good in winter too
  5. I only worry if the lake is gin clear and I think the hooklink stands out on the bottom, I have a few sharpie marker pens in my box just in case, black, brown and green, you can pick them up cheap on ebay, golfers use them for marking their golf balls most of the time I only use them in winter when the colour has dropped out of the water on most lakes
  6. yes the 'no trace' bead, I wouldn't trust one of those either ;)
  7. alas not nige, I've been to 2 of the 8 and they aren't really my type of thing, I quickly worked out you get a very good choice of swims on the show weekend, the only way i'll be there is if the lakes are frozen, that's how I ended up going to a second one lol if we are frozen over that weekend i'll come and find you
  8. i'm not sure the heli is safe either mate, in an ideal world yes, as long as the top bead comes free you should be ok, but weed can be horrible stuff and it doesn't take much to clog things up and stop a rig working as intended, the top bead actually coming off in this scenario is a big assumption, I wouldn't trust it even with a helisafe bead on
  9. can't say i'm a fan of ridge monkey, everything they do just seems to be a copy that can be bought elsewhere cheaper so I swerve them the one thing i'm interested in buying this year is a baiting pole, i'm just waiting for some feedback on them first, i'm interested in the corus and nash ones if anyone has used them
  10. 50lb braid straight through is fine for short to mid range spodding, i'd be happy using that up to the 80-100yd mark
  11. I use inlines fished 'drop off' style when fishing in weed, i'm not a fan of dumping leads but if it's thick enough to cause a problem landing them I will
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
