    Carp reel vs Spod reel

    all you need is a reel with a big spool to allow to line to peel off easier and a good wind ratio ( handle turn to bailarm rotation) to make retrieving the spod easier I use a wychwood riot

    Specialized hookbaits

    your not joking there pricey, that's just ridiculous. has the guy rolling them got a couple of Michelin stars ?

    my missus has a good tip for finding bargains people tend to misspell things when listing them and they don't show up when the correct spelling is search for so they often go for a fraction of the price they usually would so when she does a search she will try a few different ways of spelling something (diawa,daiwa) youd be surprised at the stuff she gets for pennies

    Rolling in the deep - Adam Penning

    im not a massive fan of reading fishing books but I am a huge penning fan and love his passion for and approach to angling. will definitely be parting with £35 (but if the missus askes it was a fiver )

    Preferred and average session lenght

    Used to do lots of 3 nighters in my youth but as I've gotten older it's rare I do more than a night at a time and in the height of summer it's usually 8pm till 8am

    Targeting bigger carp

    its true that when a certain approach has been used a lot the fish get used to seeing it and become weary. but if everyone on the lake has been fishing say a pink pop up over tight beds of pellets ill try and do something different, like a spread of boilies over a wide area same as if everyone's using lots of boilie ill try and use particle and see if it out fishes boilies. same as rigs, you don't have to use the latest super rig to catch lots of fish, I've used the same 2 rigs (1 for particle & 1 for boilie) for 99% of for the last 15 years just slightly altered for different types of bottom. don't think you've got to spend a fortune on tackle to be able to catch, most of the more expensive gear in my opinion isn't as good and the cheaper alternatives, I've spent £500+ on a bivvy and £150 on a bivvy and the cheaper 1 was twice as good as the more expensive 1.

    Targeting bigger carp

    on high stock venues like that I've noticed the bigger fish tend to come out of the same area so it might be worth looking at where they've come out in the past

    well id use a little common sense and crush 1 up and rub a bit of the powder around the base of the affected tooth, especially before bed time

    dont know if this works or not but its worth a try I suffer from insomnia and take sleeping tablets to deal with it I don't like taking them to late as it makes me feel groggy the next day so one night when it was late I chewed one to see if it worked faster and was a bit shocked to find my tongue gums lips and throat all went numb like the anaesthetic you get at the dentist and thought it would be handy if I ever got tooth ache

    What did Father Christmas Bring

    i got a sabre tablet holder cos im that lazy what the hell right, I got various items to improve my appearance, why don't they just get me a paper bag with eye holes in and be done with it. I think next year im getting the missus some femfresh, see how she likes it
