    andy52 reacted to chillfactor in As promised. .... another day with Terry Edmonds.   
    Andy will keep you posted .... might be able to do 7 of us anyway as it's my land . I know Terry struggles on his other venues he uses with maximum of 4 due to farmers restrictions. I'll see what he says in the next day or so .
     
    Andrew sounds ideal mate looking forward to our little social up Horseshoe. And yes still serious about making my own bait . I fancy a slightly tweaked version of Turnip's bait.

    andy52 got a reaction from salokcinnodrog in 2017 rod licenses   
    **ROD LICENCE REFORM**
     
    Three-rod option and free junior licence for under-16 from April 2017!
     
    Fisheries minister George Eustice has confirmed proposed changes to rod licences from April 2017, including “a full year rolling licence rather than a fixed single season; a licence for a maximum of three rods rather than the current two, and a free junior licence for anglers under the age of 16.” These will be advertised formally in the spring.
     
    Carp-Talk editor Simon Crow said: “The vast majority of fisheries up and down the country only allow carp anglers to use a maximum of three rods. It therefore seems a waste that we need to buy two two-rod licences to cater for this. It would be so much more user-friendly if a third rod licence supplement was introduced, and I’m delighted that this long overdue reform now looks like happening.”
     
    Lee Jackson, former world carp record holder, added: “Excellent news and not before time, too. It will be of great benefit to anglers, especially carpers, and how brilliant it is to be able to get youngsters into the sport without having to worry about a licence. Well done to the Government, the EA and the Angling Trust for applying common sense.”

    andy52 reacted to welder in Naked Line?   
    There was a time when I used tubing because I'd been lead to believe it was essential. I now know better so I don't.
     
    I always fish relatively simple rigs and feel sure that the less "nonsense" involved between me and the hook the more likely I am to catch. I just use a line known for sinking, dip my rod tips after casting and fish slack. Seldom use backleads but always use Microgrub bobbins set to lightly grip the line just my side of my Atts. I adjust the pod to suit.
     
    This is working for me.

    That would achieve nothing, and be the same as selling, the membership would have no say and the AT would have an asset to do as they please with . No it should remain the same as it is although a couple of changes in personnel at a higher level would benefit

    Up Horseshoe as we speak for a short session.
    It's going to be very interesting how it all plays out over the next week or so , there's going to be a good influx of memberships and we will just have to wait and see how many if any get accepted.
    Hoping for my first fish for 2016

    Please, please, please can you all apply to be a member of the carp society. It will help stop the current directors selling off the assets that they should never have been able to manipulate the situation that could allow them to!
