  1. Whoohoo!!😀😉😀

    Nice one the look on your face says it all well done fella Gaz
  2. Trying too hard?

    Wow that is a very hard question to answer. I see it is completely down to the individual on what they want to catch from each venue. I do suppose there is the chance of getting completely fixated by one or 2 fish and becoming obsessed with catching them, but i dint see that as trying too hard its obsessive. I think life is too short to really get hung up by 1 or 2 fish but thats just my feeling there are many an angler that has lived on a water for that 1 bite a year. Gaz
  3. Using light leads

    You would need a heavy lead for it not to move at all, a lighter lead would be picked up and slide back up the line a little on the take giving what would sound like a single toner on the alarm. I nearly always fish running rigs with various size leads and it does give better bite indication in my opinion. You still need a bobbin swinger etc to keep the line that bit taught over the alarm for it to register better.
  4. December Catch Reports

    I had a day session at a well stocked local farm pond and had a couple of fish on the 23rd Dec . The first was about 12-13lb taken on a 2 foot zig in approx 4 foot of water, no pic and the second was 17lb 8oz taken on an 18 inch zig in the same area.
  5. Weighing

    Here's an interesting thing when weighing fish too. How many of you use weigh bars ??
  6. How long?

    If its any use to you i have previously put pellets and boillies ( Seperate times ) in buckets to soak up the hemp oils and water to only find that the boillies and pellets took too much moisture out of the hemp and most of it ended up floating on the top instead of sinking to the bottom. Try to keep iot moist is my suggestion. Gaz
  7. Hi mate all the info is on here http://www.ericswillows.com/ it says it went day ticket in 2013 i cant believe its that far back how time flies Gaz

  9. Thanks pal i have been using shimano diaflash (bugs) 2.75lb tc for the last 16 years and really liked them until i managed to break one a couple of weeks back i have noticed the ctx dont come in 3lb tc but im going to have a ride out to chapmans to have a look at some when i have a spare half day. The only pusuits ive picked up were 3.25 tc and i think thats over doing it for most of the waters ill be fishing, im hoping the ctx may be a little more forgiving. Gaz
  10. Hi guys im thinking of purchasing a couple of new rods either the free spirit ctx or nash pursuits in 3lb test curve. I wont be fishing over the 100 meter mark so im not sure if i need the 50mm ring set, i can get the ctx with 40mm ring set. I have looked at the pursuits but not in 3lb test and there isnt a stockists near me for the ctx so i haven't seen these yet. Does anybody use either of the above and what are your views on them. Thanks in advance. Gaz
