  1. Anyway, back on topic. Just returned from France and didn't get checked for bait, food etc at either end, French had a cursory glance in the van and said 'ah, fishing?' and waved us on. Heard of quite a few anglers taking bait now with no issues but it's still a chance you take so consider your choice and the implications. We chose to use the lake bait.
  2. Warrior - veteran might be more suitable when they get older and showing a few marks etc but not warrior, they never get the marks by fighting.
  3. Solar SP C-Tech bedchair - different level in quality and comfort.
  4. I never had it on for long periods of time so I would think the runtime was similar.
  5. I just bought the NGT bivvy light for a recent week in France - good light but found the remote a bit iffy (since been replaced by seller and seems ok now) good light that lasted until the Thursday before needing recharging, also got the NGT cree headlamp and that's good too.
  6. The fact of the matter is that you can do pretty much everything you want (within reason) using either 10', 11' or 12' rods. People are changing their 12's for 10's for no real advantage in most cases. Personally I think one of the most overlooked aspects is for years practically everybody had a set of 12' rods and the tackle barons noticed this and decided to open up a whole huge market in trying to sell us something hardly any of us had and labelled them 'must haves'. The boom in rod sales must have been enormous, and of course we all 'need' an appropriate set of reels too. Cynic, me? perhaps a little 😉
  7. I had swim 1 in May and suffered with the sun - if the weather is bright the sun will get you whatever the time of year, I just moved my chair under the big tree next to the swim to find some shade.
  8. You won't need plug adapters, all the sockets are UK type.
  9. Genesis, you must have a short memory as we have exchanged several PM's about the place
  10. The most important item of tackle I have is from NGT. Very important
  11. Lake Reaper - great little boats at a sensible price.
  12. Piece of cake to put up, it's not described as a two man but as a 1 1/2 man a big one man in reality. A mate has the two man and is equally impressed.
  13. I've had a JRC Sti bivvy for ages and after my last long session decided I needed something a little bigger, so I bought this one from Triton Tackle for a week in France. https://tritontackle.co.uk/product/tritus-10000hh-super-waterproof-1-5-man-deluxe-bivvy/ I think it's superb, very well made and robust, at least the equal of the JRC and to be honest I think overall it's a lot better.
