  1. I've fished a number of waters on which I swear fish travel and feed in year groups.
  2. I tend to use hinges and ronnies which might explain our different experiences buddy. Never had an issue👍
  3. I find the more weighty the rig is (hookbait+hook+swivel(s)+putty) the less tangle prone it is!
  4. Proper Job Pop Ups are still going strong.
  5. Yes - although I would test it in a glass to see how long it will keep your particular pattern of hook up for. The 13 mm needs a fair bit of putty to hold it down, I even had to trim the pop ups down. The 11 mm will keep a hinge with a size 5 Chodda up for 48 hrs easily, and that's with putty too. They're be far the most buoyant pop ups on the market buddy.
  6. Once winter hits you need to cut out any oils. Other liquids are absolutely fine mate.
  7. Have you ever tired to get decent self takes at night with a mobile buddy? It's not possible. The sensors are so small that the processor is forced to increases ISO so much so that you end up with a horrible, grainy, washed out image. That is if you manage to get the phone to recognise/focus on the subject in the first place. If you're not that bothered about genuine image quality then a phone can do a decent job in the day time, but technology has not moved far enough for them to perform at night - yet.
  8. Remember you can get an intervalomater for a tenner that removes all need for messing about with the remote buddy.
  9. Spot on. When (or IF) the weed dies down they'll have a period when they go mental on that naturals that are revealed (bloodworm etc). Sometimes only naturals can compete with this - maggots, worms etc. Once they've passed this period boilies can indeed be the one, but not always. In that case do exactly what caught your fish but increase the baiting levels significantly.
  10. I'm just making the most of limited time mate: Twice a week in the evening when the mrs puts the little'n to bed I'm driving like a madman to the lake, baiting up like a lunatic, and scooting back home before she's finished. I'm fishing Friday mornings. I only work half days on Fridays anyway so I can get the day off for a half day holiday. Getting there at first light, few hours fishing, job done🐋
  11. This is the kind of lighting you can expect with the rhino beam plus built in flash buddy. Not perfect, but very good for the low price.
  12. @commonly it's a club water mate. I've had a fair few mirrors too but not posted all of them.
  13. Lovely little common this week but lost one of the bigguns which really hurt after so much hard work baiting etc. I'm still feeling it now, absolutely gutted.
  14. Imo it's essential to light the scene for self takes. The flash on modern DSLR's are good - good enough to produce well lit pics imo. The problem is focus. With no light source (between shots) the camera will struggle to focus. Therefore the shots my be bright enough with just the flash but they will be of poor quality. The floodlight type lights (Rhino Beam etc) are a very cheap way of achieving great self-take pics at night. I would recommend them highly.
  15. It has been a very healthy year weather wise. No mental heat waves has meant the carp have continued to feed throughout the entire summer and this is reflected in fish weights. All over the country fish are coming out at top weights, MASSIVE weights. It's also done the environment the world of good. The grass is green and the water is clear, unlike last year when the grass was brown and the water was pea green!
  16. Well done @chillfactor💪
  17. Lol..... I have one too, great jacket. Fabsil can only re-proof water proof material. It can't make normal material waterproof.
  18. Imo crumb will just wash away on the river buddy, I think you're better off sticking to whole boilies.
  19. Fabsil for clothes, Fabsil Gold for shelters.
  20. Mirrors were created by humans for the table through selective breeding. They'll all go back to commons if the gene pool is left alone buddy.
  21. Keep at it mate, effort = reward and all that.....
