  1. I also messaged nash this same question as well as asking what the folded down size is but never got a reply. One of my pet hates is bad customer service and being ignored over what I thought was a fairly reasonable question really winds me up, if they cant be arsed with me then I'll take my custom elsewhere.
  2. how deep ? might be worth trying zigs before you fill it in
  3. does anybody know what the maximum weight the nash ss4 5season emperor can take ?
  4. That's very interesting Blue. , but I thought you suffered with your back and knees ? . I think my knees would protest the next day if I sat on a Lo Chair other than for a short period of time , and the same for sitting on a mat or the grass ; I am better off sitting on my JRC Xlite Chair at 3kg some of us suffer with ailments such has bad joints or back so its not easy to compromise comfort for lighter weights I need a large bedchair which wont fit into smaller shelters so I just try and keep the justins to a minimum

    Silly Rules

    Totally agree. No one is born knowing everything and I think it's a very poor show when experienced anglers wont pass on tips to new comers to the sport. The amount of times I asked other anglers questions when I was new to carp fishing and was ignored or even lied to in an attempt to dissuade me from fishing at certain venues is shameful, now I answer any question asked to some one new to fishing even if its (apart from areas I've been prebaiting) what bait or tactics I'm using.
  6. the jrc sti bivvies are twin skin and only £180
  7. I've got a small crane bag for keeping my brew kit in and it's been fine (I did unpick the logo tho)
  8. I take it your looking for club waters and not syndicates
  9. 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
  10. Spoz it would be nice if 1 of the members local to him could meet up with the guy and give him a few pointers
  11. your not joking there pricey, that's just ridiculous. has the guy rolling them got a couple of Michelin stars ?
  12. 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
  13. 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 )
  14. 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

    2019 Plans

    Planning to do a season on mapperley res, home to the 26lb UK carp record from 1930.
  16. whats the airbomb like dayvid ? ive been looking for something to spread boilies out at 120+ yards, how wide is the spread on release ?
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. yea I mostly take pictures on the mat to log capture size, swim, time and other information
  23. my favourite capture wasn't a carp it was my first double figure barbell from a small river call the soar 12lb 2oz and fought like satan him self, couldn't stop smiling for about a week.
