  1. no ones mentioned that the bloke bloody weighed it!!
  2. thats not true. there is a scientifically proven correlation between how much your fishing gear cost / how much of it - you is cammo compared to fish on the bank. theyre discerning creatures. no fish wants to be seen on a shoddy carp mat.
  3. yes, to a certain extent, depending on the constituents of the bait. activ8 works better once turning white due to the enzymes within the bait. other baits are better completely fresh. hence my asking.
  4. personally its the last place in france i would fish. its the magaluf of the carp fishing world.
  5. i know my old activ8 is fine to use, if not better, when it gets a bit furry. i have 5k of my grange which has started to turn due to moving house, anyone know what this bait is like when its like that? no opinions please, just if you know. thanks.
  6. ive had a few 14lb bream, didnt take any pics though, slimy things.
  7. firstly, dont ask fishermen...
  8. it should be mentioned that you should NOT, under any circumstances, tie the lead to the rig/mainline with a knot.
  9. 100yds without a shockleader and 12lb line is more than achievable.
  10. i did the same, i kind of gave it up between 18 and 23. my dad and his mates used to say to me i would and i never thought i would. women, hard house music and london put pay to any fishing aspirations i had.
  11. its just under half an acre. if its a circle (which it isnt) it is 1719 sq metres. an acre is 4046 sq metres. and that my maths lesson for today.
  12. you can pace it and there is a formula to work it out from that. my dad knows it. when i spk to him later ill ask him.
  13. aye, back lead clip. although we have a mould for back leads which we used to make then drill a hole in them and use the lead out of lead core to attach it to the line. any resistance and its off.
  14. do they have rings on? kind of narrow but tapered? bendy? theyre mine.
