  1. You really have become fan boy 🤣👍
  2. Doesn't the (Plus) mean the inclusion of Robin red in the Matrix mix? I went onto the Aminos Plus - but can't remember what the extra ingredients were.
  3. I've just bought the Solar P1 Black version - 1st test - 2 out the snags locked up, no probs - too early to recommend but they are easy on the eye.
  4. No I was there throughout wasn't as bad as they suggested it might be, Sunday was dry for packing up which was a nice bonus 👍
  5. With the weather forecast showing rain Saturday and temps in the mid teens after Friday a scorching 30 degrees it seemed perfect for me - and maybe a bite, I felt I had to give it a go. An early start Saturday was rewarded with 2 fish - one late morning and another early evening. This cracker was the bigger of the two.
  6. For my margin stalking I mostly use halibut pellets, tiny one's for the fizz and fast breakdown attraction and a few bigger ones and samples of the hookbait. Lots of attraction - very little visible food with it mostly being dark, works for me 👍
  7. I agree with your sentiment and most often fish over small amounts of bait, fishing for a bite if you like, however I've also fished over big beds of mixed stuff: tigers, boilies, mixed pellets, maize, particle mix, hemp etc and had some good hits, the fishing improved day on day and they demolished the lot in a few morning hours. They can demolish huge amounts of bait when they want to. I'll be doing that again this summer if conditions seem right, depends on the time of year and many variables. When I go on a busy venue it's common to see people putting far too much bait in seemingly without any reasoning, just because they see others doing it, all year round too - it's frustrating!
  8. Awesome knowledge there Blue, very interesting - many thanks
  9. I've got some tubular steel rods - how old do you think they would be?
  10. How did you get on with it - any complaints? I also recommended to someone else and they bought it round last night so I could show them how I set mine up. Needless to say I was well impressed, it's hard to recommend a new version you don't own but I knew it would be great and I was not wrong IMO - I love it. A big 1 man, better poles, groundsheet, peak design, inner layer front panel addition (we took that out for now), new colour, lovely fabric. Saving up for this myself as the 2 man is a bit too big for some of the swims, this is the one for me for sure, will take by big bed, all kit and dog crate - bingo!
  11. Thankfully I've not come across this yet, they are banned on Bluebell and cannot see anyone using one at the new lakes - just annoying!
  12. I've got one spod rod I use for both, 30lb whiplash to a 50lb braid leader. Just tied a clip to the end to swap from lead to spomb, or use the big loop method as described above.👍 I dont think I need the 50lb leader but I just had it on a pike reel so used it.
