    "Decent" barbless hooks????

    What Hooks do you normally use? Are these available in Barbless? If so I would stick with what you are confident in and I just like to add a bit of shrink tube to help keep the hook in place.

    Pallatrax grip hook

    I tried them for a water I was fishing with a barbless only rule. They were pretty good, found they came up a bit small for the size stated so that's something to bare in mind when buying them.

    What is your newest purchase

    Take a look at the Wychwood dispatch spod reel. Similar price and comes loaded with 30lb braid.

    N Trap Semi Stiff

    Nige do you happen to know if the Stiff version can be crimped?

    Nash difusión leaders.

    They look good in all the tank tests they do and they do disappear on any lakebed colour but do you really need to use a leader? If you want to use something behind the lead there is so much quality tubing out there now I would opt to use that.

    New chair

    My dad is around the 20 stone mark and has mobility issues and he has always gone for the Nash Daddly Long legs chair. They are reallly comfortable and he has never had an issue with them. They are really easy to get in and out of too.

    25% OFF Atomic Tackle

    Thanks, I ordered some big ring swivels to top up my supply as they seem to be the only ones who do them now.

    Solar P1 banksticks

    They range from £21 per stick to £25 depending on length. I like the carbon touch on them but they do look far too chunky and not too my taste.

    Korda Coloured Kickers.

    I would get them soon as the Tacklebox website says they have been discontinued so only have selected sizes left.

    Hinged stiff rig

    Yes you can use it running on the mainline. Providing your using a semi stiff or stiff boom section and balanced correct you shouldn't encounter any tangles.

    NSR

    I too liked the concept when I was heard about it then I started to think more and more. How does the whole zeroing the scales work with this. The whole idea is that you don't have to transfer the fish from the net to the weigh sling as it's already in it. Well if you zero the head, put it together then land a fish in it the net will be heavier with the added weight of being soaked so you're not going to get a true reading.

    Who's fished 25th Dec ?

    I have fished on boxing day when I was at secondary school. My parents bought me 2 nash outlaw xs rods and a couple of baitrunner reels for Christmas so wanted to use them. Got to the lake and half of it was frozen over.

    strongest hooks available

    The Strongest hook that I have used are Solar 101s. I wouldn't bother with the ESP range as I have opened some of them tightening down a knotless knot with a pulla tool. Korda have just released a "xx" version the wide gape and curve shank which is meant to be a stepped up heavy gauge hook for snag fishing. As these are literally just hitting the shops I wouldn't know what they are like.
