    erm... Fishing?
  1. bobstains

    Sleeping whilst fishing

    I sleep, I need it. Usually, bank side it's midnight until the birds morning chorus. I have fished through a few times, usually not when carp fishing though. I do like the quiet of the night, great time to soak up the whole fishing experience. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Is rolling your own cost effective?

    It's something I wanted to do for years, but never actually got round to it. I liked the idea of producing a food source bait and catching on it. My fishing, for the next few years, is changing from carp to trout and pike. The only bait to worry about will be deer hair or pheasant feather. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Is rolling your own cost effective?

    You're assuming you're getting paid for not rolling, unless you can work the extra hours then it doesn't add up. If you can't fit two hours in to knock up 5kg, then buy. However, if you have the time, and want to make your own, then surely cost per hour doesn't matter. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Not sure, but I heard Barlestone is shut due to some form of problem, oxygen, poisoning, disease etc. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    3 targets for the year.

    I'm not sure I have targets as such, I would like a double figure Barbel and a UK 30 Carp, so have joined a club that contain both of these. I'm not lusting after these fish, just gave myself a chance of catching them. Targets are personal, for some it motivates and inspires, for others, it kills the fun of fishing. I only have 1 main target, to enjoy my fishing. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    What line do you use?

    Chameleon gets my vote, used it for 15 years or so on my lighter gear. GR60 graces my carp reels currently, no complaints on that either. Although I am looking to eek some extra yards on the cast so my drop to something more suited.

    Solar P1 banksticks

    They look awful. Probably a ridiculous price to.

    The football thread

    Imo many Liverpool fans have gotten off lightly and the police are a disgrace.

    Golden nook

    There is no indication in this post that he is new to the forum and he hasn't said hello, in this post. So, no, there will be no hello and welcome from me. I've never heard of Golden Nook. Sounds more like a Chinese.

    Just 1 Bait?

    I've thought about this and all the baits mentioned are great, I use them more than the bait i'm going to suggest, but for me, it would have to be boilies, they're just so versatile and easy to fish with.
