  1. Greys prodigy gt4 3lb tc, 40mm butt ring.... £70 on eBay! is this too good to be true?
  2. I'm not a mega caster anyway me though, I prefer smaller lakes so not a massive issue for most of my fishing.
  3. All i do is make a little solid bag with my hooklink and leave the lead out of the bag. That way you can just quick tie on your new rig with the bag already on it. A lot of videos and instructions on the packs tell you to put the lead in but i dont bother and its caught me fish
  4. What's that snoozer? Ya robbed it? Haha
  5. I have tfg spod and marker rods and they are bang on for the money.
  6. Dogging lane? What goes off down there apart from fishing?
  7. 6mm pellets sticky bloodworm cloudy liquid swim stim
  8. Dont get me wrong its a really good bivvy but i just cant get my head around the mesh on the bivvy itself, it just means that you cant use it without the wrap, which is what i sometimes want to do. Apart from that I have no other problems with it so to be fair it was maybe a little harsh putting it on my 'worst' list but i couldnt think of any other tackle that i dont get on with. I LOVE USING IT ALL!!!!!

  10. Sweet, I was just wondering, thanks
  11. Iv just respooled my reels with brown 12lb subline and was wondering if I should stretch it at all or just use it as it is. Any suggestions?
  12. I meant I have done three sessions with the sharpener file because iv only just bought it, I wasn't referring to the hooks
  13. I have just bought a Jag sharpening file and it's brilliant. I do the standard nail test and if it's not quite as sharp as if like I just run the file down it 8 times either side and 4 on the top. Test the hook every cast and possibly sharpen every cast depending on how the test goes. There is a thought that sharpening takes the coating off but iv done three sessions now using the same hooks and just give them a quick sharpen now and then and up to press they don't seem the become blunt any quicker or slower than straight out of the packet. Get one, try it, see how you get on. Saves you loads in hooks if you do get on with them. Oh and I use fox arma hooks for most of my fishing
