  1. Thought for the day.

    Strange that as I am on a pit less than 25 miles from you Vik and it's as quiet as the grave. Mind you there are depths here down to 25ft in quite a large proportion of the lake so I wonder if the temperature is a lot different? That estate lake is surprisingly sheltered and warm. Cheers Ian

    Great find Kev and an item with a lot of uses. Did you notice that was posted on you tube 7 years ago such a shame it appears they are no more as some of their gear was well liked. Cheers Ian

    Just need to make an adaptor for the ones that clamp to a boat with a wing nut and thread. A sort of rectangular block to imitate the boat with a vertical thread running through. Cheers Ian p.s charges for design normally but I am feeling benevolent lol

    If you find any of the blue bobbins for sale let me know please. Oh and not the ones in Germany on ebay that are a couple of quid but £50 P&P lol. Cheers Ian

    Logo looks the same to me as far as I can remember. My bobbins are probably 10 years old or more now, they replaced the ones made out of "Grommit" key rings lol. Those boat rod rests were used by the trout guys for trolling I believe, you do see them in catalogues for game and inshore gear but first time I have seen them with a bankstick thread. Probably way cheaper than the Wychwood net station lol. Cheers Ian

    Hi Yonny Forgive me for butting in but I think it is a rod rest for attaching to the gunwhales of a boat. Osprey tackle used to be based in Flitwick (Beds) now gone I think, best known for transparent leads and rig bits and my favourite light up bobbins. Cheers Ian

    No they knew nothing but they had some good stuff like some of the new pellet wagglers that will be ideal for running down a nice glide ! Hee Hee I ask for help a lot but have a vague idea myself ! I just welcome the input of others as that's how we learn ! Cheers Ian

    We should move this to thought for the day and stop crowding the purchase thread lol I went to Manor farm fishery at Biggleswade and availed myself of their tackle shop which was great and helpful.

    Funnily enough we are going to fish Tues 26th for a 48 hr as that's actually our anniversary so we would appreciate it if you let everybody know that the estate is hosting a convention for cormorants and otters ! may get us some peace and quiet lol. Then a week at home and then I can probably net the household best grayling lol.
