  1. Agree with all of the above, I've had mine at least 15 years and it's still as good as new. One thing, though. Whoever specified the dimensions of the Sti 2-man was an amoeba. No way in this world will two half-decent bedchairs fit in there! Ian.
  2. Words from my mouth! I've done France many times, often after travelling well into the night. My list of priorities upon arrival: Erect bivvy. Install bedchair , sleeping bag and/or peachskin. Get onto bedchair. Sleep. Like a log. Several logs if necessary. Ian.
  3. I, too, used these in France. Never lost a fish yet almost all hookholds were released in the net. As stated, these are SHARP hooks! I used the straight points in size 4 and they were ideal. I'd add that I've just had a long weekend on Horseshoe Lake, the Carp Society's headquarters, using the same hooks. I blanked but one of my fishing buddies had a PB mirror using identical hooks in a very weedy water. I'd be happy to commend the hooks to anyone. Ian.
  4. A convincing case for the Prestige item, I'd say. I'm not at all surprised, I have a Carporter and still it's like new at around 10 years old. Never, ever had a problem with it.....except when I left the handles at home...….. Ian.
  5. Get them sent, Nick. I'll get them back to shape then TIG weld some aluminium reinforcement on. Ian.
  6. Newest purchase? A JRC Quad 2G xxl bivvy with over wrap. It's enormous! Love it cos I can stand fully upright in it. Bring on my next trip to France...…... Ian.
  7. I once drove from the Midlands to Whitchurch to fish Blakemere. Unloaded my Shogun, started to load my Carporter and realised I'd left the handles at home...…………. Ian.
  8. It must be handy being a Heron. All those fish and no tackle required! Ian.
  9. I eat whatever my son cooks. I do the washing up. Ian.
  10. I agree with all of the above. My nephew has three Tribal Velocity's in 3lb test and I have to say that in my opinion they represent excellent value for money. He, I and my son had a week in France early June and the rods performed very well indeed, landing fish well over 30lbs with ease. Ian.
  11. Yes, it is. However, it's all too easy to become obsessed with the idea that bigger fish are better fish. There is nothing more pleasant than going back to our roots and fishing for whatever takes the bait. Sitting, chilling with no pressure just watching the float and wondering what will pull it under. Love it! Ian.
  12. Those numbers are almost right. Just need several more hooklinks now...…….. Ian.
  13. I've recently done a week at Windmill Lakes, Cosse en Champagne, France. I caught 251lbs of carp. ALL on Pallatrax Gripz in size 4. I'd be glad to commend these hooks anyone interested. Ian.
