  1. Hello Colin . Maybe buy some readymade rigs that you like the look of / have read good things about , then if a particular one gives you confidence and / or good hook holds you may then want to buy all the bits to tie the rigs yourself ? . You could choose a bait that is readily available that you can pick up locally rather than have to pay delivery charges , but as has been said many times on the forum try to make a choice and stick to it . Where do you think you may be going to fish ? , only someone on the forum may know about that water . πŸ˜ƒ
  2. Are you allowed a boat JH ? , only I'm thinking drifting quietly along maybe putting out a carpet of floaters ahead of you ? . πŸ˜ƒ
  3. Hello Teo In addition to the other advice , all of which I wholeheartedly agree with , I would wander around and around stalking with mixers / floating pellets hoping to see a Carp or 2 and look to select the biggest . πŸ˜ƒ

    I personally don't strip back at the knot . I use the Palomar for everything , i.e. to mono. , to my ESP Semi Stiff . πŸ˜ƒ

    I feel your frustration , Smufter , how many of us have suffered that " if only moment " ! . 😑
  7. Hello MS , welcome to the forum . I'm surprised no one has answered your question , perhaps you could help , Nick , as a Shimano man ? . πŸ˜ƒ

    When I'm tight to snags I like to try to jump up , strike , and in the same action run backwards to hustle the fish out of the snags before it knows what's happening ; then when the fish is what I judge a safe way from the snags I will settle down to a conventional " pumping " action . πŸ˜ƒ

    Go get them , Smufter . Roll on Tuesday ! . 😁
  10. Well what about sending a video clip to the authorities showing this budding mountaineer ? . As Oscsha says if these lads have conditiond that are not easily noticeable they should check out o.k.

    I'm not sure if Yonny will accept " I'd run out of ABS Plan B " as an excuse ? . πŸ€”

    Ahh oops ! , shows you how many fish I catch , sorry . Where I fish the match boys like to put the bigger Carp in one lake , but there are one or two surprises left in the match lake . Look forward to seeing you post your results at the " up to sz.8 " water . ☺️

    Well at least you went fishing , I would have stayed home even with my big boy pants on . Sad to read that you lost a big' un , but at least that means your bait and rig are working ? . πŸ˜ƒ

    Very nice , Highy . Are you flying solo ? . πŸ˜ƒ
  16. Hello Mufty I know you said live snails , but what about Dynamit Baits Hemp and Snails Specimen ? ; the video on their website shows a snail hair rigged with a plastic corn topper . πŸ˜ƒ

    I filled my ice cream tub , that I use for balancing my boilies and chucking water over any fish in my cradle , and the water was full of fry and plankton like stuff ; I have found when there is frog spawn and tadpoles about the fishing is very slow . πŸ˜ƒ

    So what sort of snake is that Carpepecheur . . πŸ˜ƒ
  19. I'm a reel with the right hand , Rod in the left hand , I'm the same as you in that I throw with my left and am right footed , but then I eat right handed and used to play golf right handed . Nice looking swim to make home . πŸ˜ƒ
  20. Lovely looking bamboo landing net handle , but I guess your back won't let you sit on a wicker creel ? . My Sharpe's has a black piece of metal ( can't think of the proper term ) under the the reel fittings . πŸ˜ƒ
  21. Are you left handed , Elmo ? .

    My knee jerk reaction , because of its' shape , was " that's a big old Crucian Carp " . πŸ™ƒ
