  1. ive just spent a week at the Woburn Centre Parcs. I felt trapped, no signal to my phone unless I walked past the car park and the trees (im sure they have some sort of jamming device) My daughter got a signal once she logged into the CP wifi but even that was sporadic. Everything was so blinking expensive too. £5.55 for a pint of Guinness as an example. There was a lake in the park but no fish. Hope you managed to catch a few in the short time you had.
  2. well for gods sake you need to label them as fishing bait. I had a fish pie last year that my missus made with fish from the freezer. Only trouble was it was fish from one of my un labelled pike fishing day session packs. Mmmm Mackerel,Smelt and Roach pie.
  3. most of the parents round here use horses
  4. I'm at Discovery Academy in Nuneaton it's part of Macintyre Academies.
  5. I think most of us can be guilty of fishing too heavy for the most part. Look at the match anglers using fine line and small hooks with single corn or a small pellet as bait. Ive had 20lb plus carp in the summer whilst fishing for Bream on carrot and 10mm xxx boilies. The 2.5 tc rods and 8 lb mainline did me proud and the fight was fantastic. Zigs are normally on smaller hooks and the line diameter is also thin and possibly pre stretched as well.
  6. yes you are.
  7. don't you dare worry about looking like a noddy because you want to use a float. The carp don't care what you look like they only care about swimming around and eating then they swim a bit more and then they eat a bit more . I bet if you started catching on float fished worm the other guys would soon follow your example.
  8. they are in fact spacers to stop the buckets from jamming together on the pallets.
  9. give Sean the owner a call closer to the date and he will give you all the goss. I haven't fished it for over a year and my weekend was pretty dire with a big fat zero, however your story could be different.
  10. superdry !!! My kids have told me that lesbians wear superdry stuff. anyway it kind of looks super fishey now lol. Nice carp though.
  11. For years when I could only afford one pair of rods it was a set of 2.75 tc jobs. Now that im older and can afford two pairs, I have a set of 3 lb tc rods which I also use for Pike in the winter and a set of 2.5 lb tc rods which double up as Bream and Tench rods when im actually trying to catch Carp but get a Bream instead.
  12. are they ?
  13. if you are having trouble sleeping, perhaps you should try counting sheep..................... oh ! you were already
  14. they are called luksees. Part of the plastic injection moulding process has an extra form at the top near the bucket rim. Its so that the moulten plastic can penetrate into the mould fully and these pieces are formed around the top of the mould as an extra part. At certain points in the production these bits will get cut up so that they can be examined to see that the ridge has been formed correctly. A kind of mould performance if you like. Anyway as already mentioned these bits have found their way into your bucket instead of being collected and fed back into the hopper. Keep hold of them as they could be collectors items in a few years. and of course im talking complete Pony.....
  15. I vaguely remember that too. I think it was in one of the earlier instructional vids he did. He talked about the period starting around about the second week in May being a good time to fish as the weather and water would be warmer etc etc. However he also says to use lots of pink squirty goo or you wont catch anything.
