  1. Identical to mine, I'me really happy with them. Ian.
  2. Got to agree. Increasing numbers of fisheries only allow "proper" bivvies. I struggle to understand why but their place, their rules I guess. Ian.
  3. Tuckab, you might want to consider travelling a little north to Newark. Cromwell Lake is a cracking fishery and holds some big fish. Ian.
  4. That's pretty much my approach when doing a week in France. I always reel in at breakfast time (mine, not the carp) and spend some time checking rigs, sharpening hooks and catch up on sleep if necessary. Then, suitably rested and refreshed, bait swims up, cast/boat out and sit down to feed the ducklings. I like ducklings. Ian.
  5. I just can't walk past a headtorch without at least trying it for size. I own seven or eight of them. Ian.
  6. Frank who? Never heard of him. Ian.
  7. It's no good being daft if you don't show it. Ian.
  8. Oh good. That's alright then, just so long as you took it seriously. Ian.
  9. Some things just don't change. Great. A degree in daftness.........🤣 Ian.
  10. Don't just think about it......do it! Welcome home, Jonesy. Bit of a reunion vibe going on in the last few days. Firstly Tim (Newmarket) now yourself returning to the fold. Oh, do you still hang toilet rolls the "wrong" way round to perplex people? Ian.
  11. Hi Tagman, welcome among us. Ian.
  12. That dog is handsome! My son has the female version and I love her to bits. Ian.
  13. That dog need to learn to relax....... Ian.
  14. Yes, I'm still about and here to keep an eye on you! I'm delighted to see that you're back among us, welcome home, mate. Ian.
  15. Hi Andy, Welcome. Take a look at the Nash Daddy Longlegs chairs. I'm like you, struggle to get up out of a low chair. These start at a good height and can be raised a lot more. Had mine years and wouldn't want anything else. Ian.
  16. I understand that rechargeable batteries can develop a memory. After several "short" charges all they'll accept is just that. It's good to run them completely flat then soak charge. Apparently. Ian.
  17. Be interesting to know what was "said". Ian.
  18. We've got them all around Birmingham, everywhere within the Inner Ring Road. £8-00 a day for my Mitsubishi Shogun, £8-00 a day for my Transit Jumbo. So £16-00 a day before I've even begun work. They're calling it a Clean Air Zone. Ian.
  19. My son is obsessed with carp rods. Over the years he's spent a great deal of money on several sets of three rods. His go-to, all-time favourites? Three Chub Outkasts that cost him £145, several years ago. It isn't all about the money. Ian.
  20. Ah, the sock diet. We used to have two chocolate Labradors and very few intact socks. No dogs now but, miraculously, loads of socks. Ian.
  21. I've got a hat just like that. I'd better get a dog. Ian.
  22. That's some serious ear ring. Ian.
  23. Know what, Greekskii? I'm beginning to think that your alternative suggestion may be the way to go. I know from previous experience how hot it can get in France during the summer months and the lake we're on is closely surrounded by dense forest so a cooling breeze is unlikely. Briefly wielding a towel has got to be better than on and off with waders and an opportunity to cool off isn't to be missed. Ian
