  1. The Cheating Thread

    Thanks for that guys I was just concerned people might think I was doing something dodgy ! As to fishing to that spot from the legal platform in the corner I would have issues with anyone who thought that was a safe way to fish. Another example of how text is never as good as speaking lol. Cheers Ian
  2. Baiting Pole

    Fantastic bits of kit wouldn't be without it and can personally say the two biggest carp I have ever caught in the UK were because the pole got me into the exact spot with a little bit of free samples and rig with little or no disturbance ! Cheers Ian
  3. The Cheating Thread

    Actually not correct if you fished from said platform to the spot I targeted you would be fishing with at least 3 trees alongside the line between rod and rig. As a result it is safer to fish from directly opposite and have less chance of losing or tethering fish! Rules are one thing responsibility for the welfare of the fish is another thing altogether! Cheers Ian
  4. The Cheating Thread

    Is that right Steve? I was told by the baliff that casting across to the out of bounds bank from where I was fishing was perfectly within the rules of the estate. I would be interested in Viks take on this ? Does that mean that all the swims past the last platform are out of bounds? Cheers Ian
  5. British Record

    Just in case you don't remember back in 1973 there was a self striking rod rest made in this country ! The club I was first a member of "Godstone Angling club " had their rule book changed to include "No self striking devices" I don't know for sure but I bet they weren't the only ones. Cheers Ian
  6. What is your newest purchase

    I was most amused when I walked into what was Simpsons a couple of years ago ! It has become an Asian corner shop but above the shelves the old sales signs for Solar, Nash, Kryston etc still stuck to walls and pillars. Cheers Ian

  8. Barking

    Did I once hear from you a description of riding a bike with a rod bag over your shoulder and a handling issue ?

    I have a neighbour who keeps a couple of spaniels in outside kennels and because he isn't regular enough in his feeding or exercising them as much as he should the dogs are a nightmare ! I so want to witness your distress on him !!!!! Cheers Ian
  11. e great Grayling hunt

  12. e great Grayling hunt

    Well day one of the great grayling hunt mk2. I have caught a grayling of about 10oz and herself has caught only trout and minnows lol. Day 1 to me but I know it won't last. By the way we met Dougal Grey ex owner of Savage and mate to Rod Hutchinson, nice guy friendly and happy to share his knowledge on the river as he has been fishing here for about 4 years. Nice day and adjourning to the pub now. Day 2 tomorrow!! Cheers Ian
  13. Thought for the day.

    Very cautious of airbrushed history of a very troubled man, almost certainly would be diagnosed today, homosexual with huge issues surrounding his interaction with other people and apparently only really happy alone for example rode hundreds of miles on his motorcycles and avoided a lot of contact. All that said a remarkable man and a great loss. Cheers Ian
