    Woodlice as Bait?

    No mate, I never did get to try it, but I'm going to Snitterfield this Saturday..........
  2. Hi mate, Standard ledger tactics, I'd go with spam or boilies as there are loads and loads of roach, rudd and perch in there, a big piece of bread would do the job though.. The biggest fish I've seen out came off the flat bank side although I've caught on the sloping side it's a bit of a job to get set up there. Behind the island is a no-fishing zone, and the carp regularly patrol in and out so they can be targeted in the channels either side. Hope this helps Cheers
  3. Hi Inter, sorry only just seen this. Advice on the camping or fishing?

    The gear or the idea?

    Water craft doesn't cost anything.

    Do you use binoculars to aid you?

    I got a free pair when I joined the National Trust, they've been packed into my fishing bag ready for the season
  6. I've stayed at Fir Tree in Warmington. Nice campsite and good carp fishing, the lake isn't huge but there are some high doubles in there and some lovely Koi too. Sadly no night fishing. There is an falconry display/bird sanctuary on site, but no other children's activities. Get the kids fishing, the lake is absolutely stuffed full of roach, rudd and perch, it's how I got my daughter into it.

    Best way to cast long zigs?

    Does any other tactic work at Drayton? It's all I see there, Zig City!

    Korum bobbins and a Wychwood Signature bite alarm to match my other one.

    Yes mate, he was. He lost both parents when he was sixteen so he never had anyone to answer to. I kept up with him until he went to America, visited him a few times but the meth was a step too far. Unfortunately he moved to a student orientated town in Oregon so drugs were rife.

    Edited. Cannabis, along with alcohol has been around for thousands of years, cannabis has only been illegal for a little over a hundred years, opium and cocaine were also widely used by the victorians until they were properly understood. William Shakespeare smoked weed during his sonnet period, and he is revered as the greatest playwright of all time, without the effects of weed would we have had his legacy? It seems only now that we understand the damage that both of these drugs do to the human body and more importantly the mind. I have first hand experience dealing the effects of both on people close to me, and as far as it not being considered a gateway drug, I have to disagree completely. Weed is usually the first mind altering drug that people come into contact with, with exception to alcohol of course. If you want more of a buzz from alcohol the only thing you can do is buy stronger alcohol like spirits, with drugs, the world is your oyster. Case in point: My best friend, IQ of over 150, talented electrical engineer, Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm, private helicopter pilot and qualified instructor, worked all over the world, got a few patents to his name, but needed a smoke of weed to unwind and in his words " open up my mind, lets me think". He moved on to amphetamines, acid, ecstasy, cocaine, became an alcoholic when he worked in south Guyana, and finally got involved with Methamphetamine in America in his attempts to get more of a high. The Meth caused irreparable damage, he lost all his belongings, his home, his job in Area 51 at the time. He was deported from America after burning his flat down. He is now a registered paranoid delusional schizophrenic who believes the CIA conducted mind control experiments on him. I wrote a four page essay on him to his psychiatrist to explain some of his paranoid delusions. I lost the friend I had, he thinks I am in on the whole CIA thing, and doesn't trust me anymore. Painful to watch, so my thoughts on making drugs legal? They are called "mind altering" for a reason, one spliff is all it takes to the first time user to cause irreparable damage. Making them freely available to the population will only add to the increasing burden on the mental health system which is the fastest growing area of the NHS.

    Legalising cannabis would be a massive error in my opinion, it would just make it available to more people, and more people are going to try it just because they can. The addicts that have to fund their habit will carry on stealing, mugging and prostituting themselves to get the money just as they are now. The problems caused by cannabis aren't just the effect it has on people's behavior whilst under the influence, it's the criminality that funds it and supplies it. Do we really think that because it becomes legal that the current black market will just pack up and stop trading? The only reason for leagilising it is because the police can't control it, so they don't want the hassle anymore. I have taught my 15 yr old daughter of the dangers of drinking, smoking and drugs from an early age, if more parents had done this we might be in a better position in this country.

    Drinking alcohol makes you feel warmer but actually cools you down as it dilates the blood vessels at the skin's surface taking the warmth away from your core. And it'll make you need the loo more so you'll have to get out of that nice warm sleeping bag.
