  1. I see Bluebell Lakes has closed finally, still watching out for some local syndicates to do the right thing though.
  2. and the rest, I bet I've got over a grand in hooks and leads alone, it is truly frightening how much money is in my tackle boxes and a high percentage will never be used! Wouldn't surprise me if a lot of us have £2000 plus in tackle box bits alone
  3. I put the fish in the flotation sling still in the net. I'll remove the hook or cut the line and then slip the net out from under it, lift the fish to the mat in the sling. Weigh, photo and return. IMO that's the best I can do, certainly better than lifting out in the net if a good fish. I've also lost a good fish pre-photos whilst retaining in the net, much to my dismay - a cracker to boot, so I deffo prefer the sling after that experience!!!
  4. Cheers when coupled with the rod voted best in it's price range I should have no excuses for not hitting the mark!
  5. Shimano Ultegra XTD Spod Reel £109.99 from Poingdestres - free delivery. Can't have a new rod without a new reel - what was I thinking - nodddy!
  6. You can't put a price on Carpyness! I'd pay the extra all day 👍😄
  7. Like most people's my kit is a mix from most companies: Harrison rods and nets Shimano Reels AVID - shelters - brolley and pram hood Cotswold Aquarius - rod sling Carp Porter - Barrow and food bag Trakker - Rucksack, unhooking mat and retention slings Terminal tackle and bits and bobs - ESP, Korda, Gardner, AVID, Fox, Ridgemonkey, Canon, Reuben, Delkim IGLOO - cool boxes, various sizes
  8. IMO you may as well buy a retainer, it's a weigh sling anyway.
  9. I've treated myself to a new spod rod, hopefully it'll help put more fish on the bank and look carpy! Long overdue upgrade Tackle Box - CF-X Black Edition Spod 12ft 4.5lb (50mm) Hopefully be putting it through it's paces at the weekend - cant wait -
  10. There's also a few in Sandmartin, one being an uncaught mirror!
  11. Epic mate what a place/challenge. I'll be doing a bit on Bluebell this year but I'm gonna have a few looks round the mighty St Ives throughout the year with a mind on joining next winter. What's not to like! 👍
  12. You might well see me down there, it's well on the radar! Good luck 👍
  13. True mate, you've got some incredible looking lakes for sure, very jealous indeed!
  14. It is truly epic mate - what a place! If only more lakes were like that. 👍
