    What is your newest purchase

    Cyprinus fast and light mk1 60" brolly with front/groundsheet and storm poles. Read nothing but good reviews on this, apparently on par with aqua?? Cyprinus carp star deep snooze 5 season sleeping bag, really looking forward to this, my old bag is fleece lined on the inside and it feels awful I think. Ngt tackle safe, looks pretty much the same as the korda one just a cheaper price and a different logo lol. 5kg of sticky krill and a pot of white krill pop ups. I've been looking at the ngt hook vice for hook sharpening, does the hair rig making tool do the same job?
  4. Sorry lads I haven't had chance to go get one yet, my dog thought it would be a good idea to eat a strip of ibuprofen ending in an emergency vets appointment making me skint lol.

    Thought of the Day pt.2

    I've been an early bird for as long as I can remember, it used to drive my mum nuts when I was a kid, up at 5 wanting to watch cartoons... Even worse now I've got a pup that's got a mental body clock and knows I get up at 5, she will be in my face waking me up at 4.55 - 5am every morning lol.

    Dogs and fishing

    Thought I'd give you an update on this, we've done about 5 successful sessions so far, it's been an absolute pleasure. No problems at all really, she will sit and watch the birds on the lake without giving chase or barking at them, she loves meeting other anglers and always gives them a nice greeting when they come into the swim. Once the rods are out we do a lot of training on the bank followed by a some play time (no swimming or being noisy) she's a bit jumpy around catapults and still hasn't seen a fish on the bank yet, so will have to see how it goes lol. All together though, taking her fishing is the best thing I've ever done, it's completely changed her behaviour. She used to have a few bad habits at home (nipping/biting, thought she was boss basically lol) but after a fishing session she is that wiped out she gets in the door, has some food and heads straight for the bed without being a little [censored] lol.
  7. Yeah mate I'll start off with a few and add another 1 or 2 to each boil and see how it gets on. I see on argos they have a double deep fat fryer for £40, I'll try the hob first and if it isn't up to the job I'll get a deep fryer. I've switched from a coleman to a t4 too, I love using it and not having to worry about fuel getting on everything. I think it's still got some fuel left in it so might use it for some particles. Not sure if it's any use to you mate but they have 10 of them canisters for £10 in go outdoors.
  8. I'll pick one up next week and let you know how it goes. I've only got small pots so won't be able to do too much lol, will it be alright for boilies if I don't put too many in? Me and my old neighbour used to cook up particle on our colemans all the time, great stoves!!
  9. I've been looking at these induction cookers for my shed and was wondering if they'd be man enough to cook particles and boilies with? This is the one I'm thinking about getting https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/kitchen-products/appliances/hobs/tillreda-portable-induction-hob-white-art-40331630/ Any thoughts?

    A Bit Of Interactive Bank Chat

    Been doing a few short sessions after work this week and baiting the swim up before I go. Decided to do the night tonight so loaded the car and off I went, turned up and the lake is rammed... gutted!

    Which Boilie?

    Because I don't know if I should try a new bait or start rolling my own so I'm working my way through these while I decide. It's taking longer than I like to get through it but at the same time I don't want to waste it lol. My local say they will try and price match anything you want but sometimes they can't without putting them out of pocket, I don't mind paying a few quid extra because they offer some sound advice when you're in there. I usually crush them up and use it in a solid bag set up and it's taking a long time to get through them. Yeah I got done, it was a 3 for 2 offer that I think I paid £50 all together. I'm more swaying towards rolling my own than trying another bait, I've started to lose interest a bit so it might give me a nudge back into it. It's just deciding on what basemix recipe to use or if I should buy a ready mix one lol £7-8 a kilo is a bit too much for me mate, thanks though!

    Which Boilie?

    I've struggled sticking with one bait for a good few years now. I've used urban baits, sticky, mainline and nash which I switch between every few session. Once my bait has ran out and needs replacing I'll usually buy one that's on offer that week, could be sticky, mainline etc. At the moment I'm using nash instant action pineapple crush, I have no confidence in the bait at all but I bought 15kg of it so need to finish it lol. Once I've used it I'm seriously thinking about rolling my own, got all the kit for rolling just not the ingredients. I do enjoy going to my local tackle shop for a chat and a browse etc but sometimes I do ask myself why I do it.. if I buy online I get what I want at a cheaper price and I don't have to pay for fuel (travelling to tackle shop and back) lol, as for pubs, stopped going when started charging £4.40 for a pint of cider 😂

    48hrs Carp Fishing

    I've found food for fishing is quite hard to organise, usually end up taking loads then bringing half of it back lol. What I'll usually take now is a sauce pan, kettle, cup, spoon/knife/fork and cooker. Breakfast is 2 x sachets of instant oats, honey flavour. Don't bother with milk, just bang it in a cup, add boiling water and cover it for 5 minutes. Job done lol. Lunch is a large pot noodle Dinner is a pack of uncle bens rice and a tin of chicken curry, granted it's not the best but it's easy to make and it tastes ok lol. In between meals I drink lots of tea and eat biscuits. So add a few packs of biscuits to the list lol. As for milk I usually take UHT milk, not bad if added to tea or something. I'll take 20 litres of water (2 x 10 litre drums of water) but leave one in the car. coffee and tea bags in little pots, don't bother with sugar because i'm sweet enough. I've tried taking stuff for proper meals but imho it's just a pain in the backside really, so prefer to take easier stuff to make.
