  1. I’m quite excited to get back on the tidal stretch, still craving a 20lber πŸ˜† got an hours work at 9, done at 10 and will heading straight to the river. Got tigers, corn and krill soaked boilies on the ready. High tide at 11am so plan on fishing high tide down to low and catch them on their way down. That’s the plan anyway πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ anyone else out?
  2. I’ll never forget the time when I slipped with my barrow only for it roll down the bank breaking 2 rod tips. On that trip my mate lent me a spod rod to fish with it, 5lb test curve or something like that. Only went and caught my 29lb 2oz pb on it πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚
  3. How much rest do you give the carp before fishing for them again? Most of my waters started spawning last week and over the weekend. I usually give them a week to recover, but spoke to a few people and now they are recommending 2 weeks minimum rest after spawning. I’ve been walking my local lake everyday for the last week and they’ve got from crashing, chasing each other around the margins to nowhere to be seen, I take it they are either resting or getting their heads down looking for food? What is the correct amount of time to give them to rest before fishing again?
  4. I fit everything for a day session in my carp cradle and rucksack and sometimes a chair if it’s damp. My dad on the other hand takes a bed chair, brolly system, cooker, barrow etc on a day session, like you, I’ve already got a rod out by the time he unloads and gets to the bank πŸ˜‚
  5. Good luck pal πŸ‘ managed to find a Facebook group about the reservoir I was gonna go to, apparently they were spawning Saturday so best give them a few weeks to recover πŸ‘ not sure if I should go lire fishing for some wrasse at a rock mark or go do some lure fishing for perch, you can bet the little wasps will be on it this time of year πŸ˜‚
  6. What are you fishing for mate? All I ever catch is dog fish and the odd pollock πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  7. Debating whether I should do the 50 mile drive to a res for a 24 hour session tomorrow πŸ€” I haven’t done a 24 hour in god knows how long, probably a year lol. It’s just the possibility they might be spawning and I have no contacts that fish there and the website was last updated in like 2008 πŸ˜‚
  8. Been sorting the shed out, sold my outboard, sib should be going in a few days then I’m moving on to the carp gear. I need to thin the heard, no idea but I got 3 bed chairs, 2 chairs, 2 sleeping bags, 2 barrows, 2 storm brollies and 3 bivvies. I use hardly any of it but struggle to part with it πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ My collection of rods/reels is mad, again I use hardly any of it.. it’s got so bad over the years I can barely get in the shed now πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  9. Had the pfizer one on the 5th may, I had a sore arm the next day, but that was it. I’m not worried about having the next one but not looking forward to the needle πŸ˜‚ My friends bother is one of these conspiracy theorists that believe they are implanting us with microchips but doesn’t seem to understand people walk around with mobile phones all day, which is basically a tracking device πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  10. If you’re willing to travel into Devon (holsworthy) you could try anglers paradise. You need to book in advance πŸ‘
  11. Bought a year canal ticket the other day, thought I’d drive down and look at some spots only for them to have put signs up all the way along the lay-by saying no parking because of all the walkers during lockdown. The next place to park is about a mile or so away πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ˜‚
  12. why not buy a cheap setup with a keepnet and see how you get on? I found unless I was catching decent fish instead of bream and silvers the size of my finger I got bored pretty quickπŸ˜‚ I usually do a bit of everything, when I get bored of one type of fishing I’ll do something else until I get bored of that and move on again lol. I have so much gear in my shed I struggle to get in it, it’s a nightmare trying to find stuff πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  13. Yes mate I think everyone is struggling at the minute but now that we have a vaccine there is light at the end of the tunnel so to speak πŸ‘πŸ‘ just hopefully the restrictions ease soon, I think we are all starting to get a bit of cabin fever and all the staying in is starting to take its toll πŸ‘Ž but I really do think we are through the worst of it now mate so hopefully not long until we are bit back to normal πŸ‘
  14. What files are people using? I use Gardner muggas straight out the pack, maybe I should be sharpening them before I use them πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ I’ve also got the Gardner hook stone to touch them up after they’ve been used πŸ‘ to be fair I’m not that confident with sharpening and not really sure if I’m making the hook sharper or not πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‚ I normally change hooks or make new rigs πŸ‘
  15. That’s a bit dark ain’t it. Crazy. @Highy I thought your post was a bit of a wind up at first. Sorry to hear what’s going on, hope you can get it sorted πŸ‘
