  1. " We " , Elmo ? , or is it a case of " Mummy do we have to go ? " , " yes Girls , someone has to look after Daddy " . When they're older your Girls are going to look back , and remember what a great Dad you are , Elmo . 😁
  2. Will you be posting your fry's progress , Emmcee ? , IMO it would be very interesting to read how you are getting on pls. 😃
  3. That will be interesting , what do you plan to feed the fry on , Emmcee ? . 😃
  4. 29lb ! , and I was feeling sorry for you ! . 🙄
  5. Thank goodness I'm useless at D.I.Y. , and my Wife hates my efforts anyway . Today I just had to make 2 trips to B&M to pick up some slabs , and that's me done for the day ; basically I just have to drive around and collect my Wife's building materials . 😁
  6. Emmcee , have you walked under a ladder or something ? . Maybe you'll have better luck in June ? . 😁
  7. Hi Elmo . As I understand it , you are supposed to leave the fish 2 weeks after they have spawned before fishing for them again , as the fish will be in vulnerable condition , and need some quiet time to build their strength back up . Your recon. session plan could work though , as not all carp spawn every year ? , and if you are fishing in deeper water far out from the margins ? . 😃
  8. Hi , Commonly . Oh to have a memory ! , I'd forgotten about your exciting project . As you say , go forth and enjoy ; maybe Nick knows if spawning time on a huge reservoir means you get a chance to view some of the stock close up and personal ? . 😃
  9. I fished Friday night into Sat. morning , and the water temp was over 18C . I didn't see any spawning behaviour i.e. fish chasing / following each other , but here in Suffolk spawning time cannot be far away . Maybe you fellas could have a back up water you could go to if your first choice water is suddenly shut while the fish spawn ? . 😃
  10. Elmo , the 2nd photo , my Wife wants to know " does he look at his Wife like that ? " . Oh , also my Wife thinks you look a little like Ross Kemp . 😁
  11. Does Mrs P not want a Ridgemonkey Modular Bucket ? , " I thought you might like to plant a flower in it , darling ? 😁" . 😃
  12. I need to look after my skin so I moisturise at night , so your post has given me a reminder , Elmo . When I go night fishing next weekend I'll put on some Avon Skin So Soft before I go to bed , and maybe do a belt and braces job and light a citronella candle as well 🤫. It would be interesting to compare my results to your , Elmo . The Viking Angler has posted elsewhere asking about Mossie Coils , and it will be interesting to read any replies he gets ; if I remember rightly you need a high percentage of Deet in a product to repel mossies , but Deet is vicious stuff ? . 😃
  13. That's very helpful , Nick . I'll 'photo capture your reply so I can quickly reference it . 😃
  14. But was it good to get back to White Cottage , and get back into the swing of things , Smufter ? . I grabbed 2 floater rods , and when I went to assemble my free lining floater rod I found that I didn't have a spool on my reel 🙄
  15. Ooh , I look forward to following your exploits , Ginger . 😃
  16. I would be ( and I'm thinking also others ) very interested to learn how you are going to pack your new barrow so you can stay mobile , and able to move swims at a moments notice - 'photos would be perfect , or am I pushing my luck ? 😁. A little while ago some of the lads posted 'photos of how they had trimmed down their kit , and I found it really useful . 😃
  17. Hi Viking . Don't a lot of those bags form part of a modular system so you can " fish off the barrow " ? ; if so you had to buy them once you had the barrow didn't you ? 😁

    A brighter day

    Well done , Dayvid . I see you're wearing a t shirt , it was bloomin freezing in Suffolk , and when I left the lake there were only 2 cars left , a sign of how slow the fishing was . 😞
  19. I'm glad you posted the above , Emmcee , I thought it was just me that thought " it's not that complicated " . 😃
  20. " Hello John , want a new motor ? " . " Not from you , you dodgy looking geezer " 😱
  21. No , only a babe of 61 . 😁
  22. Hope tomorrow isn't too upsetting for you , Elmo , and your head is filled with happy memories of your Dad . 😃
  23. I believe we're roughly the same age , Smufter , so I'm pleased that you have longer to think things through ( hope that doesn't come over as patronising 😃) . Roll on Wednesday ! . 😁
  24. My Wife says " how fabulous , what a brilliant idea , you have a pub to go to , what time is opening time ? . " My Wife drinks cider , but I guess we'll have to pop round to Elmos' gaff for that . I see you have diplomatically allowed your Wife a couple of bottles as well as your own - you spoil that lady , Highy . I love the glass rack . 😁
