  1. Well done , Nick . At least you can make out the colours of the fish ; I guess that's a VS Carp , that's starting to darken ? . Do you think the originals are in small group(s) away from the VS stock ? . 😀
  2. Well here's to Kate's improving health , and carry on filling your boots . 😃
  3. Good grief , Chill , from the camera angle this Carp looks even bigger than the 46 1/2 lb ! . Your Wife will surely see the benefit of you staying on for a few more days ? . 😁
  4. How satisfying to catch after your plan worked out , nicely done , Chill . 😃
  5. Well just show your Wife the 'photos , I'm sure she'll understand ? . Failing that bring her back some smelly French cheese and a crate of wine . 😁
  6. Lovely happy smiles , stunning fish , that's the way to do it !.
  7. As a rough rule of thumb , Nick , the bigger the Bream the less " snotty " ? , I'll grudgedly admit the bronze colouring is quite a good look . I still prefer your double figure Tench though , as featured in an angling publication . 😁
  8. So does this mean you're going to get Ziggy , Chill ? . 😃
  9. Hello Nick I just prop my iPad up on a little stand and select video mode , and flick the screen around so it's a mirror ; then in theory I lift the fish off the mat and smile at the camera . I then select any stills from the video clip . I guess you prefer a pukka camera as you can do so much more with it ? - Niges' artistic shots spring to mind . 😃
  10. Bream ! 😱. Don't over to the Dark Side , Elmo , think of the slime , the smelly landing net . Now a lovely Tench , that's understandable . 😁
  11. Are there no small intimate ponds in Portugal , Malchali , or are you a big water man ? . 😁
  12. Well that must be a first for Carp.com , Machali , a 'plane landing in your swim ! . 😱
  13. With a life jacket on , pls. ? . 😀
  14. Can't say I've ever heard of it before , what will you do , give the rod and reel to the bailiff ? . I'm guessing a fish has towed the rod in , but managed to slip the hook ? . 😀
  15. What make of rod is that which you have recovered , Minbin? .
  16. You great big cuddly bear , Elmo ! 😁. .Well done for being so proactive and changing tactics .
  17. Hope you've had a good sleep - did you put your bivvy up , or is their a lodge of some kind for the weary traveller to crash out in ? . When the guys on the forum describe arriving at their lake after dark , finding the fish , casting out baiting up , bivvy up and finally getting to eat when I would have been asleep for an hour , well hats off to them I would have cast 2 rods into trees and had a massive hissy fit ! . 😃
  18. Watch out for throwing stick shoulder , Chill. , and hopefully your back is nice and supple as well . Have a great trip , and show us the big kippers ! . 😃
  19. So that's 5 pints of tap water please , Barman . 😁

    September catches.

    Well done Minbin . I currently fish a club lake nd catch very little , but I'm just happy being there . If I get fed up I could go to my local day ticket lake and catch a few , probably bigger than I'm likely catch on my club lake . It's good to have choices , a change is as good as a rest , keeps it fun IMO 😃

    The 'photo with the 'phone on the bucket gives a refreshing angle to the 'photo IMO , Steve . 😃

    September catches.

    Well done Minbin , you're learning quick ! , and if you do as Highy and Finchley suggest I think you 'll be catching doubles soon - just as long as you keep enjoying the journey . 😃
  23. There seems to be a Dannygooner and a Donnygooner ? . 🤔

    September catches.

    That must be demoralising after all the hard work you've put in . A change of venue ( for a little while perhaps ) sounds like a very good idea . 😃
