    Latest purchase is a Kampa Loo. Fed up with dirty toilets, no toilets or bush craft. Get in the bivvy, letter box the door and bombs away. Next purchase ............ Air freshener !!

    Hi
     
    I went to Brasenose 1, Sun. Mon & Tues and blanked. Is there any shame in that?

    I'd have to say; first thing you do is get your rods in the water and the last thing you do is take your rods out of the water. It's then irrelevant how long setting up or putting down 'base camp' takes as your fishing during both of them

    My fishing, if and when it actually happens, is usually squeezed in between work, family and generally a whole load of other things that need doing. I guess I am not alone there.
     
    When I look back at where I started, I used to take a 2 man bivvy, over wrap, a bag for bait, a bag for clothes, a bag for cooking/food, a bag for tackle and the kitchen sink.
     
    I am down to a brolly and 1 bag (Barrowlogix small cube) and a bucket for bait (I have a sponge pad, that sits on the bucket as a make shift stool/chair) and a modified Q-Dos rig wallet that holds my rigs, bits and other end tackle. However it still takes be a couple of hours to set up (excluding the time to select the swim). I usually fish 3 rods from a pod, use measuring sticks, delkims etc.
     
    I suppose I was hoping for ideas on how to get the set up time and then take down time down to a minimum, so that my actual fishing time or more precisely the time my lines are wet is maximised.
     
    Thanks in advance for any constructive advice.

    I fished grimshaws with cell and scored 6 on my first go. fished there again and only caught a couple. Moved onto redhouse lake and caught nowt on two trips but I understand thats the norm and the weather has been poor.
     
    However, I really like the place and am staying on to hopefully get the premium ticket in a couple of seasons.
