  1. Hi David, Good to hear from you. I can understand your disappointment. However, baits go out of fashion even though they remain great carp captors. That is the only reason we were forced to drop the Whisky. Sorry. Kind regards, Kevin Nash So it seems they will no not release the whisky boilie again. Petition is in order then guys!!!
  2. Just E-Mailed Nash Baits, so hoping for a reply. I will let you all know if i get one.
  3. That sounds like a good idea. There is a "contact us" page on there website, so i'm going to drop them an E-mail. Hopefully enough of us will ask for them back and they do something about it!!!
  4. Cheers guys, its a shame they have stopped making them, like mentioned they were a great bait. i wonder how they would fair today if they were re-released again.
  5. Hi guys Does anyone know if you still can buy Nash Whiskey Boilies? I have search hi and low for them and get the impression they are no longer available. I have managed to get some Air Ball pop up's in the said flavour but I can't seem to find the Whiskey Dip for them. Is this also no longer available? They are are great bait and i had some good catches with them when I used them a few years back. (I love them smell of them myself)
  6. i never used to really think about it, until my last session on todber manor. i use to pretty much always use a size 8 for all my fishing. i wasn't getting any action what's so ever, so i whittled down my boilies and moved on to a size 10 hook. this seemed to do the job and managed to get two out. on the flip side of the coin i did lose two at the net? was this down to the hook being to small? i don't know. however it turned a blank in to getting some fish.
  7. they are few and far between mate, well done.
  8. I claimed for some bite alarms I run over in my garage (idiot) and the insurance company wanted proof of ownership. All I had was a photo of myself holding a fish with my rod pod in the back-ground. You couldn't even make out the make of the alarms but the insurance company was happy enough with that and paid out.
  9. i can see why you have used the rubber over the swivel. you have attached a quick release clip under there and the rubber is to prevent the hook link getting worked around the in-turned portion of the clip. i used to do the same bud, but now use a bit of silicone instead. this doesn't hinder the movement of the swivel. just another option for you. good luck at sandhurst.
  10. splicing needle is handy. and just to reiterate, a good pair of pliers to cut out the awkward hooks. they are a must!!!!
  11. cheers for the advice guys. i ordered one and got it today in the post. it seems the business. hopefully i get to use it at the end of the month on linear.
  12. cheers guys. i will leave them hanging for a few days then, hopefully the wife can handle the towels stinking in the airing cupboard!!!
  13. if you are going to use boiling water bud, put the maggots in cold water first and add the boiling water a little at a time. this will prevent you scalding them bud. good luck.
  14. with that length of time they are still good to put a baiting needle through?
  15. Hi. i have just rolled a couple of kilos of boilies, how long should i air dry them for before sticking them in the freezer. I normally do it for about 24hrs. Is this right. Any advice?
  16. When out on my last session I had 6 fish in about 2hrs and i must admit it became a pain in the bum to keep on taking the landing net out of the spreader block. i am now looking at purchasing a MCF spreader block. Are they worth the money? are they any good? Cheers
  17. i loved the old brollie system, quick and easy like you say. now i got the double top pro. A bit more to carry but well happy with. can get it up and pegged out in about 5 minutes.
  18. to fit in a quiver kinda narrows it down. are you looking for a new brollie system bud?
  19. pre-baiting paid off bud. great fish. well worth the time and effort
  20. if there was a bream repellent on the market you could spray on to your boilies, i would buy a few litres!!!!
  21. a few years ago i bought some products off badger, to be honest i wouldn't buy from them again. the quality wasn't much bud. my personnel opinion, stay away from badger.
  22. If there is fish showing leave it out longer than if there is no motion in the swim, to keep the disturbance down to a minimum. I have heard a lot of people are catching a lot of fish with just using a trimmed down bit of black foam on the hair when zig fishing. give it a try mate with a sloppy spod mix over the top to cloud up the swim bud. good luck.
  23. like all other have mentioned, search u tube bud. only advice to give mate is when selecting the the depth you want to fish at, start with the longest, then work shorter. you can always take some off but you cant add it. sounds obvious i know but you have to find what level the fish are at. fishing linear myself at the end of the month also. see you on the bank good luck.
  24. i once asked a fellow angler the same question about crushing pellet to form boilies. he said you wouldn't be able to get them in to a fine powder enough for them to form boilies. if you do manage it let us know how you get on bud. good luck.
