  1. cracker mate, cant wait til my lads old enough
  2. del, ive been off line for a while (slack lining! sorry!) why do you prefere tight lines as apposed to slack lines and the lengthy bombardment of appraisal and reasoning that nick and many others give? must admit that since 1992 til last year i have always caught fish on tight lines then last year after reading about slacklines and the benefits i fished slack lines, my catch rate was ok but i was not at all confident and that is probably why i never caught as many as i should??? i think i am a person of what a simple mind, decent rig, decent bait, decent water craft, and the human person with a sound mind should be able to out smart the lesser inferior carp? in my humble cider mind?
  3. i have 2 young kids and used to get out once or twice a week but cant get out at all now due to some theiving scum! went hunstanton for 10 days and returned to find back door open, mess everywhere and no fishing kit or laptop! cant swear
  4. ive had the jrc roamer only problem was that the top section would not always pull off then bought the fox trigger lock, no bad comments on the fox from me mate
  5. if i was you i would look for a decent second hand kit off fleabay. personally if i was travelling on public transport then id get a 3 rod sling like chub, two rods and the third rod compartment for a landing net and sticks and a backpackpack like the the aqua 75l to carry everything else in. why the DF rods? why the fox tackle box? chair? be-hind? hooklink? what and where you fishing?
  6. Forget baitboats and take a leaf out our gold medalist and row your own bait out? Are you fishing snags range etc? If you you fishing extreme range then go on a chinese carp site?
  7. Sorry to hear that mate, what colour is it? I am an avid cat hater so will keep my eyes open, if its the one that thinks my veg patch is a litter tray then you will hve to pay postage to have him returned, in bits!
  8. Oh rite, word of advice, dont wazz on it then!
  9. Dont think a fence would even make them batter an eye lid! If they know theres fish in there, they wil dine there then move to the next lake
  10. Im a natural, Born blanker!
  11. Did two days at billing on the river with the family, no monsters just some nice sized perch. Although at 6 in the morning on the way to the shops for milk I had to land and picture some chaps carp capture, swearword!!!
  12. Otters are a problem in most if not all regions now and im pretty sure a fence wont keep the pests out!
  13. It plays subliminal messages over and over, agnum fo stol dops tsum, agnum fo stol dops tsum, akkup, akkup !
  14. Good answer, it just baffles me when people say " theres only 10 fish in this pit! " ! ? !
  15. Cal me padantic but how on earth do you know there are 40 fish in 150 acres!!!
  16. call me arrogant but I know my rigs are tidy and I use a good bait, if I dont get a bite then I put it down to the fish are not interested? And yes I cast to showing fish, bubbles, debris coming up, spodding, trickling etc but sometimes I think its just down to the fish not you?
  17. Me dad, me eyes and a lot of blanks, carp.com has helped tremendously! I did used to get improve your course fishing mag when I was younger but I rarely buy mags now, good post kev
  18. All the time mate, when I was younger and lived in a village me and my mate would walk miles through feilds looking for a circle of trees! Found some lovely small ponds with some nice fish. Good post mate, brought back some nice memories
  19. theres no answer to this question mate!
  20. good answers, just thoght id ask, rig mechanics can be confusing
  21. yeah defonately gary, and as always your rigs are very neat, but will the tubinig still coil between the points of the coiled weight or even worse cause an arch?
  22. is this a cheaper option? maybe used with soldering iron instead of out of leadcore?
  23. back to the future, Doc, interesting read that keenok, enjoyed it. will def try as i need all the help i can at the minute! like you said about confidence in a bait, i aint at the minute
  24. stunner mate, effort = results, and you sure put in the effort, i would say tho is to hold the fish slightly different, just to get the perfect shot so it shows the fish in the best way cause thats a beaut mate
  25. Your catching mate so stick at it, I werent knockin you. The reasons of single bait, pva, stringers, spodding etc go to far without the knowin more details, keep on catching. Bud
