  1. Like funky says.....do you even need the shock leader.? Cause I'm betting that you don't...what distances are you trying to cast.? Is it for the 120 yards you where looking for on your previous thread.? If so, then like I said then, if you can't cast it then you can't cast it.....work on your technique, but a shock leader ain't gonna give you extra distance mate........if you do want to persevere with it though......have a look at the Albright knot, bit tricky to tie, but very strong, small and goes through the eyes of my spod rod no bother at all cause you can trim the tag ends down too alm
  2. Do you mean what used to be the selby 3 lakes complex mate.? If so, i heard all the biggies came out of the day ticket water and where put into the syndicate water after the owners split the lake after their divorce........still a poular syndicate from what i gather but the day ticket water isnt so hot from what ive been told.......
  3. How come I cant say hob K n o b....but he can say tit.? Theres a rabbit off here me thinks....
  4. I saw this on thinking tackle a while back as well......im with andy, the idea of using 2 hooks on a rig just dosent sit right with me......you can use maggots on a rig without having to use maggot clip or 2 hooks mate......just use floss.....
  5. Cant speak for the microcat mate, but on the vipers the handset has trim controls for the jets.....i.e if pulling to the left you can reduce the right jet power to bring it back straight.....or increase the left etc.......do the cats not have some sort of trim feature.?
  6. I am 5'2 but a javalin thrower so have some core strength for the casts, my height doesn't usualy matter except with my casting! , sorry mate, I meant how far short of the 120yards are you...... about 35yards My point before Nathen was that some people just arnt going to be distance anglers regardless of how much they want to be, or how much they are willing to splash out on more expensive gear, only to find out they still cant hit the distances they want......it's not a criticism at all because Im one of them, I dont know how far I can cast but I know I start losing accuracy

  8. Anything come out after we all left Carl.? No mate, still not a thing. Nath took the water temp this morning at 5.3 degrees, still very cold ain't it. Yeah it is mate,,, just had to wash your hands off in it for 10 seconds to feel how cold it was mate......Glad the locals didnt come on straight after us though and start catching ...... Enjoyed your company on the Costa Del Sol bank anyway mate......
  9. How far are you short.?........ not everyone can cast 120 yards regardless of gear or physical stature.....Even if Danny tells you they can, they cant...... Ps....Bait boats arnt cheating .......but that for a different thread .....
  10. Stop it, your making me blush You do realise though Phil your now my partner in crime when it comes to winding people up, dont you You too mate, like I said before Thoroughly enjoyed your company mate....
  11. Just echoing a lot of whats been already been said but thoroughly enjoyed myself again despite the conditions and the fish's refusal to join in...... To the lads i'd never met before, Phil, Ross, Ben and Graham, it was a pleasure to meet you all.... To the lads I didnt get to spend as much time with as I'd have liked, I apologise but im sure we'll meet again and I look forward to it..... Big thanks to Helen for the Curry, Rich the Bailiff for looking after us, Ian for cooking the Barbie and our breakfast on sunday and last but not least Chris for organising the whole thing, Person

  13. Excellent mate.....chilli,s made and the cars packed, roll on 5am......guy looks like your sharing your chilli now mate....
  14. Apparently you dont need your landing net, mat or sling this year...cromwell provide them....
  15. Get yourself down tomorrow dan with me and guy......talking to nathen yesterday and he was saying its really quiet so we wont have any bother getting on......couple of hours and that'll be me finished work
  16. Thanks Graham mate ...... I haven't got anything sorted for Cromwell yet Saves me running about for bait ..... I was thinking the same mate, he did say they did a few different baits now but they where the 2 I asked about.........his cell is cheaper than I can get it up here anyway......12.00 a k up here.........I'll ring again before I go to make sure he,s got plenty in and let you know mate..... Hi guys, if you pre order I can do you a bulk deal on any bait, Mainline,dynamite baits, rhino, pellet. Look forward to seeing you all very soon Regards Nathan Cromwell lakes
  17. Maybe they want the bait tight to there rig, maybe they dont want to thrash the water spodding, maybe they like using there boat.........why does it annoy you so much if there in there own swim and not in yours.?
  18. I fished it last year and caught.......thats if its the carp lake not the cats lake, cant remember what numbers they are.....
  19. Unless for 1 reason or another you cant hit 120 yards.......that dosent mean they cant cast........ive got one....i use it if i need to, but i enjoy casting so if i dont need it i dont use it............i dont feel like a cheat when i do though.
