  1. " As the water warms up, the bottom 'turns over'. A layer of algae silty stuff floats up from the lakebed, hits the surface. You will see what looks like little patches of a thin layer of floating lichen covered in tiny bubbles. " Ooh , thanks for that reminder , Nick . 😃
  2. Well that's an interesting question , Nube , I'm looking forward to the replies . Personally I like the water temp. to be over 7C . It's getting lighter in the mornings , and staying lighter longer in the evenings , so if we can have some sun to wake up the aquatic insect life for the fish to feed on ? .
  3. So how are you supposed to make critical decisions working those hours , Ouch ? .
  4. Sounds like a right Psycho. , lucky she didn't take a knife to you , Ouch , because that would have hurt . 😁
  5. Hi Nick I thought it was you that previously said a coloured line was more supple as the dye softened it ? .
  6. I'm not allowed to use braid on my lake , even for marker / spod work . 😞
  7. Thanks , fellas , that's very helpful . 👍
  8. Hi Everyone I'm loading my Reels up with fresh line , but what breaking strain for ; ( a ) Controller Float fishing ? , and ( b ) Freelining close in ? . My lake holds Carp up to about 25lb , with lillies , and overhanging trees . Thanks . 😃
  9. Highy , I've just watched " Flog It " and a Steiff French Bulldog was sold for £440 ; I guess you wanted the Steiff to go with the light ? . 😁
  10. The F.B. Light is a good likeness to you , Highy . 😁
  11. Listen to your Wife , and buy her some flowers for being such a sensible lady . 😄
  12. Hi Elmo If they do float why not use them for a spot of floater fishing ? . Chuck a mixed handful in , some sink , some waft , some rise up to the surface where your ( Elmos' ) artfully presented surface bait is waiting to be gulped down . 😁
  13. Hi Nick Are B175 hooks available as Barbless , or Micro Barbed ? ; I'm just thinking that Nube may find that the water(s) he wants to fish won't allow barbed hooks - I'm not allowed to crimp the barb on my water ( it's an automatic ban ) . 😃
  14. Yonny , your Dad should have cut a deal with your Mum - " if the lad can hit an apple balanced on your head he can keep the crossbow " . 😁
  15. Well if it's too cold for a Northern lad I don't feel such a Southern Softie for staying at home , and keeping my gear clean and dry . 😁
