  1. I'm confused?? An upside down capital 'E'. I have just turned this capital 'E' upside down at it still looks the same. How would you know your pond is upside down. :roll::roll:

     

     

    LOL, :lol::lol:

     

    OOPS!

     

    Alright, for those who are struggling this morning (including me!)

     

    Like a Figure 3, but with Straight Edges, or turn the Capital E 180degrees, so that the End of the Lines point towards the Left hand edge of the Screen :wink::lol::lol:

     

     

     

    But surley it depends which bank you're standing on, it could be a back to front capital "E" or if you happened to be on the North bank it'd be an "M"... are you saying it's definitly not an "O" :lol:

    And if you was on the south bank, it would look like a 'W' :lol:

     

    This is quite interesting.....does anyone else fish a lake or pond in the shape of a letter??


  2. When I am allowed 3 rods I usually fish both the margins, medium and long distance. Only reason for the long distance is an inviting island. Then, I suppose it's still the margins so to speak.

     

    Longest chuck for me would be about 80 to 90 yds. I don't fish any water where that would be exceeded.

     

    If circumstances prevail, all rods might only be cast much shorter distances. Too many anglers feel that if there is plenty of open water, they have to launch a bait to the far horizon. It may work on some waters, but it aint always the case.

     

    To sum up.......I hope to cast to where the fish are and so that might be an underarm lob, a meduim distance directly over the head job (for accuracy) or a rip roaring, over the shoulder, near rod breaking cast.

    Regarding the Laser Pen approach, you don't actually aim straight for the Bird, they don't like the Red Spot even creeping up on them on the water, so you don't actually get them in the eyes.

     

    My Laser Range Finder is a Class 1 Laser Product, which is defined as safe under normal conditions, including Direct viewing of the Laser Beam. Just don't concentrate the beam into the eye with a Magnifying glass, Prism or Binoculars :wink:

    Last night I actually aimed for a Tree on the Far Bank to sort out my Casting Distance, and there was an almighty Splash as the Tufties decided to leave the area in a hurry after the Red Spot went over their heads.

     

    I can see a laser working at night.............but what about during the day time???


  4. Personally, I think clubs should ask to see your rod licence before they give you a ticket to fish. It bugs me when some people don't buy at least one licence. Although I do purchase 2 for when I can use 3 rods, I don't moan at those who risk getting caught with 3 rods and one licence. I think we are being robbed by the EA when we have to buy 2 licences for 4 rods when most of us can only use 3.


  5. Have been there twice and found it first class............that was before 'Dream Breaks' stuck their beak in. It was possible to book it thro' a guy who was local to me. Lot cheaper then. Once the fact of how good it was got out, the big guns take on the booking and up goes the price. I would still recommend it tho'....even tho the catches have gone down abit. I know of two anglers that on different occasions caught 40+ fish (not 40+ pounders.......over 40 fish). I caught fish over 40lbs in weight both times I went. Saw a 50+ lb common. There a fish in excess of 60lbs that get caught.

    Two mobile phones when up a tree fish spotting.

     

    My mate lost his baiting needle.......he found it again when he sat on his bed chair. It sank right up to the plastic handle in his backside. I had the unenviable job of removing it...........1,2,3 arrrrghhh. He actually shed tears. Hate to see a grown man cry.

     

     

     

    Sorry mate think thats quite amusing but not from your end (excuse the pun !!! :lol::lol::lol::lol:

     

     

    OH I laughed and then laughed some more. :lol::lol::lol:

  9. I once did 15 days and nights when my company used to have an annual 3 week shut down....my wife visited her sister in Canada and I went fishing for a few days....that just lead into another and another. I only popped home to feed the cats and stock up on supplies etc. I grew a beard while she was away and she never recognised me when I picked her up at Heathrow on her return :roll:
