    Looking for a coach

    Hi Davey Unfortunately Wilts. is not my area . I'm not surprised you're not catching much at this time of year , it's the hardest time of year to get consistent results . If you can find Nick's post where he describes how he fishes his local Bromeswell lakes , I think you could have a lot of fun following his tactics . 😃

    Targeting bigger carp

    Hello Blue I would like to be a Margin(master) 😀 , but what about this time of the year when the carp seem to have deserted the near margins and the water is soo clear anyway ? . 😊

    Rod Shots

    That's interesting , Commonly . I thought rather than use my usual coated braid to make up numerous Multi Rigs , and then change my mind on using a MR I would buy 2 x Korda ready made rigs and see how I go ; these ready made rigs come with Krank chod hooks . Well 1 bite and 1 fish hooked top lip about 3/4" inside the mouth . So I'll carry on with the Krank Chod and see if I get consistent results . 😃

    Another vote for clove oil , but apply it with a Q tip , try not to get it on your tongue or it will burn .

    Rod Shots

    Could be the way the Carp ( or Bream according to Dave ! ) were feeding . I'm thinking the Carp are approaching my Ronnie pop up , taking the bait , then veering away sharply and that's why all my hook holds are in the scissors ? ; I've tried Yonnys' suggestion of upping the hook size ( got up to a sz. 4 , but still scissors hook hold ) . So I'm experimenting with a multi rig so I can change hook size and/or pattern more easily . 😊

    You poor devil , Dave . Who wouldn't have lost it when you were wound up already ? . It's been 2 hours since your post , hope you are finally pain free . When you do have your tooth removed you'll have a general anesthetic ? . 😊

    Rod Shots

    Were you using a Ronnie Rig , Highy ? . My hookholds using ronnies' are always in in the scissors , but sometimes very close to the outside of the scissors 😧 . I'm twiddling around with multi rigs at the moment . 😃

    Last trip of the year

    Oh dear , didn't you have a second rod to put out a pink almond pop up on ? . Well if mate no.4 didn't go that's an extra 1/4 of a pie for the 4 of you who went ! 😁

    Laser Measure

    Hello Everyone I had a laser spirit level bought for me for Christmas , which made me think . When casting to a far bank margin with something reasonably solid on the bank , i.e. a tree , could you use a laser measure to get an accurate distance then use your distance sticks to run out your line before clipping it up ; or do these laser measures only work indoors and leaves / branches plus sunlight would render them next to useless ? . 😃
