  1. Frozen meals, if I cook a stir fry, stew etc at home I'll freeze it in a plastic tub and take it fishing with me, put it in a sauce pan on really low heat and raise the heat once its not a solid block anymore, maybe and a teaspoon of water. if not, cups of tea and biscuits as snacks, Poridge for breakfast and pot noodle for dinner. I used to cook proper meals on the bank but the washing up drove me mad lol

    Awesome fish mate, what is your float fishing setup? I want to give it a go lol
  3. I've decided to make 2 rigs a day until all my braid/hooks have gone. I should have enough rigs for a while then lol.
  4. Annoying ain't it mate, don't take long to pack an extra plastic bag for all your rubbish. I take my dog with me on most sessions and I'm always finding rigs. We came close with a rig baited with 2 fake bits of corn, but luckily she didn't eat it lol. Good news is I've sold my car and got a van yesterday. Can fish out the back of it. Buzzin ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘
  5. Just been and got a loop tyer, gonna give it a go ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  6. Cheers for the replies lads, I'm not very keen on the shop bought ones either, but that said when I was a kid I used to fish with them and didn't have many problems. One problem with the coated braid is stripping the correct length and then tying the loop knot at the bottom and not loosing too much on the tag end, it's never the same length and drives me nuts lol I'm wondering if I could get away with with that iq 2 fluoro for rigs, I've also got uncoated braid, that might be worth a shot. I'm gonna check the tackle box and see what I've got ๐Ÿ‘
  7. I've kind of lost the buzz recently and find tying rigs a tedious task. I'm fishing the river at the moment so bottom baits are a must really. My current rig is a knotless knot with coated braid stripped down by the hair, with a small bit of shrink tubing on the shank to keep the hair next to the hook. It's the stripping the braid to the correct length and shrinking the tubing over a kettle that's making me not want to tie the rigs up in advance.. Any ideas how I can tie bottom bait rig even easier? Any suggestions welcome ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  8. I'm looking into getting a gopro camera for my kayak fishing and other stuff involving water. What camera do you suggest on a budget? I have no idea what I'm buying lol I'm happy with & 100-150 second hand ๐Ÿ‘
  9. On the tidal for whatever will eat my boilies ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚ loving it!!
  10. Not sure about that one mate, Iโ€™ve heard private internet access is a good one, but I wouldnโ€™t bother with it all if youโ€™re not sure on what youโ€™re doing, it can be a right pain to sort out lol
  11. Kodi still works but you'll need to use a vpn, our isps in the UK have blocked most of the streams providers so you use a vpn to say you're outside the UK and more streams will be available again. It can be a pain to set up but there's plenty of help online.
  12. At the end of the day mate if you wanna sit in the bush and fish over a bed of bait, wait for one to come a long or cast at showing fish at 100 yards and call it stalking then awesome, that is stalking for you. What i classed as stalking is what stalking is for me ๐Ÿ‘ as long as we are all having fun and getting a buzz thatโ€™s all that really matters ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  13. Not sure, thereโ€™s not much info on the place really so Iโ€™ll probably give swlakes trust a ring and ask them. theres a nice big island at the back of the res, using a boat to get to it and fish from there seems a good idea lol
  14. Putting the bait basically on the fishes nose is stalking for me. find a fish on the surface, cast a bit of bread flake floater or w/e just past the fish then retrieve it back slowly until in range of the fish then hopefully it will nail it lol.
  15. Sadly didnโ€™t get to do any fishing, my dog ran into a boggy patch head first and got covered head to toe in [censored], so had to get her back, washed and dried ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Out of the 30 acres of water thereโ€™s only a handful of spots to fish from, the rest is inaccessible because of how steep the banks were. I baited a spot with a kilo of krill boilies, probably peeing in the wind but gonna go back tomorrow after work and fish over them for a few hours and give the lure rod a go. stunning res though, thereโ€™s a few old quarry pits around it too so will be checking them out as well ๐Ÿ‘
