    Been having a few pike trips this year, nothing special until today. 
    A ledgered pollen produced a 20lb1oz fish. Hadn't been out more than 20minutes

    I think the same.
    I found that we would only get night takes at certain times of the season; October to November, then early March to end of season, and on big full moons.
     
    Bite indication is important, you can't watch a float constantly at night, you need other indication, and free lining is a no no, too much chance of a dropback and deep hooking

    Tie an overhand knot in the leader, but don't pull tight. Thread your mainline through the knot, and then tie a grinner or uni knot around the leader, wet and pull both knots tight. As habit I lighter tag the ends. 
     
    I've used this knot for years, both carp fishing and sea fishing.

    Back on the pike trail, 4 today including a double take, biggest went 10lb

     

     
    I had 7 takes, 4 on ledgered mackeral head, 3 on smelt and landed 2 on each, but lost 3 fish as hooks pulled. I can only assume small fish that didn't take the bait deeply. All were lightly hooked

    Tackle companies have a reputation for finding solutions to non existent problems and charging like a wounded Rhino for them... Preston Pellet wetter...? Trakker baccy pouch...? Guru water bucket on a string...? C'mon stop taking the pee with the overpriced tat

    That looks like the cold weather Coleman gas. A lot better than the standard. 
    I would say though if you can get hold of it try GoSystem gas

    I was going to suggest steel flour scoops for baking or the cast aluminium ice scoops we use in the bar, but then I watched the video and saw I didn't know what I was talking about. 😀  As you say, a nice big cooking spoon would do.

    This is one of the reasons that the tackle trade gets right on my thunga's... items like this is nothing but rank profiteering...  
    Get down yer local pet shop and get one fer a 10th of the price and give the tackle trade the finger for being so greedy

    "Do you have the intelligence to use one correctly?"
    I'm sorry, but as far as I can see there is no such thing as use one correctly, there are simply too many hazards around.
    We have the obvious carbon monoxide poisoning, but also anything falls on a bivvy heater and you can have flames that take hold in seconds.
    To keep heat in, you will want to shut the door. That increases your risks to start. Then while the heat is on, you may well fall asleep. Is that a sign of carbon monoxide in itself?
    A stove in the bivvy is a big enough risk in itself. I  think every anglers groundsheet probably has melted patches on it from the stove in the foorway and putting a hot pan or kettle on it...
     
    The answer is proper clothing, decent sleeping bag.
     
    Finally, just as a reminder, and remember I know the guys concerned, it was that local to me:

    Unfortunately the shortened form of Richard was being used as an insult, often with head, so it got added. 
     
    I've just spent 5 nights on the bank, blanking, but despite some serious frosts didn't get cold. 
    Daytime wear was combat trousers, boots, and a Regatta base layer on top half with a fleece, then a zip fleece top. If I got cold then I put my snood on, and overtrousers on. 
    The sleeping bag is still the Morpheus Extreme 4, but with a sleeping bag cover. 
    I didn't have to resort to the extreme of another jacket, or even my Army Norgie. 
    Bruce who did 1 night was pretty similar although he was using his Norgie with a paratrooper smock jacket instead of the base layer
