  1. Well done fella and welcome back to the fold! Good to get your groove back on, many more to come pal
  2. Onwards and upwards mate! 👍👍
  3. I’ve not tried crimping it mate, but I’ve not had a problem with figure of eight loops. They need to be very well lubricated and tightened down gently. In the end I stopped using it for fluro.
  4. It always makes sense once you’re there pal, wherever it is, whatever you’re angling for 👍
  5. When you get on the bank it will all make sense mate 👍 ive gone through stages of not feeling it but the bug always comes back. Recently I’ve been hunting bass on the beaches, it suits my current lifestyle as I can get out for a few hours rather than doing an overnighter. A change is as good as a rest sometimes. It’s not been going to badly…
  6. Clicking on this thread I was expecting a picture of the ex wife!
  7. I’ll happily fish a pva bag into (the right) silt, the carp are perfectly happy to find food there, I don’t worry too much about the bait being tainted by silt, their sensory receptors will still detect bait in silt, there’s lots of food already buried it it, so it makes sense to place a bait there. If you don’t want it crashing in too fast, then I use a lighter lead and you can use a straw to blow some air in it, tape it up around the straw, then pull it out and lick/stick shut. A few nuggets of foam and/or pop ups will increase buoyancy too. You don’t want them too buoyant as the bag if sinking too slowly may well dissolve before it hits the bottom. Not necessarily a problem in my view as it may give a slightly wider spread of free bait, but maybe not the presentation your after.
  8. All the family all fit well and fully recovered, many thanks all
  9. They aren’t going anywhere! The wife and kids are much better now, they had a slight temp and headache for 2 days, whereas I’ve got flu like symptoms and a tight chest. Feeling better each day. 👍
  10. Recently brought a beach stand and some terminal tackle bits so my son could try shore fishing, then we all tested positive for covid, so haven’t been out!
