  1. Or drill a hole and pin them together using the connectors?
  2. Doh! Not Boddington, I'm on mud, but there are rocks less than 16.764mm beneath ground level; you can sometimes weave a peg through, storm poles make me speak funny words . Trouble is I rarely use a brolly, so haven't developed a knack for using one (showing how dumb I am ). When I have used one, it's normally on plain simple mud where you can get pegs and stuff in.
  3. Any advice for pegging down a brolly on rocky ground? Was fishing yesterday and needed to put up my brolly, to protect from sun (not much, but enough) to protect from rain (enough) to protect from wind (not my own ) The wind kept changing direction and meant re-positioning the thing, anyone know any good ways of getting the pegs deep enough in the first place (mallets not allowed)?
  4. This is as good a thread to start with as any it covers a lot in a short space It depends on how deeply you want to get into it, but you should read quite a lot about the subject first since there are so many avenues you can go down.
  5. Reminds me of a line in Carry on up the Jungle: Or something like that
  6. Sweetcorn and Marmite, you'll fit right in. Welcome to the throng!
  7. There's no simple answer; approaches are based on what we think is going on under the water, anglers should be keeping an open mind and open approach since what works one day may not the next. The sloppy mix can create interest from passing fish and create a feeding are since there are bits suspended in the water as well as an area on the bottom where they can really get their heads down. The small balls of groundbait may attract a few fish in at a time so that you do not spook a whole shoal of fish when you catch one. Fishing for one fish at a time, or creating a feeding frenzy, spreading bait out to keep them hunting, keeping the bait tight to keep them in the same area ... The list of possibilities just keeps increasing, seasonal variations, none is correct every time, experience and ability helps. This is why watercraft is king, if the fish are basking in the surface areas, there's little point pinning a bait to the bottom. Fishing several areas gives you the chance to play the odds, if all else fails, soak up the rays and listen to the world wend its way through the solar system and contemplate what would have happened if you'd stayed at home
  8. I'm sure that I speak for many of us when I say - I don't need to imagine
  9. Effort = reward, so you are due some; you'll be moaning about aching arms next
  10. Is that sunshine in the background? can't be sure as I haven't seen any for a while
  11. Welcome to the forum, you can try gimp (Gnu Image Manipulation Program) which is free, or you can do it online, found this one but can't vouch for it as I haven't used it.
  12. Were you a party demonstrator Nick? (you do seem to of had many jobs )
  13. Welcome to the forum, I haven't used big game; but I do use Sensor Brown, it's very reliable, fairly consistent, knots well and behaves after fish and bushes give you the janx.
  14. Sausage sizzle, Duke of Cumberland or Linconshire Imps
  15. For me the true test has always been once you've got a lump on the end of it that gives you merry hell, some lines just don't seem to play nicely after and pig tail / knot up. Hope it's not the case smuft, and I hope the line will receive a good verdict (that's another way of saying hope you catch plenty), I enjoy your reviews
  16. Corruption of Tanners lane? Tea lane? Our ancestors were an inventive lot
