  1. Renewed my license for the canal and river Pint of maggots Just got the float rod ready for the river tomorrow morning. Buzzing 👌👍
  2. Korda krank x hooks in size 4 and 6 Korda boom 25lb Korda ring spinner swivels Micro swivels basically all the stuff to make the spinner/ronnie/360 rig I get confused with the names but seen them using it on monster carp last night so want to give this rig a try 👍 I think I made a bit of a mistake though, I got micro swivels to attach the bait to, should I of got the micro ring swivels instead? I do have bait screws on a ring though so I can always use them instead lol
  3. Most of my time will be on the rivers and the canal. I've done 2 carp to 19lb on my tidal stretch, would love a 20. Theres another river close by that holds a few carp, big chub and grayling, so will be trying for all them species. Use the float rod more and just try for all the different species possible. Then when it's summer I'll be taking the kayak out and doing some sea fishing, had some really nice wrasse this summer, but would like to catch something bigger 😁
  4. I want to try float fishing on one of the lakes I fish, they have a rule for line being 8lb minimum. Will a normal float rod be alright to use, or should I use something a bit stronger? Tackle wise I'm gonna fish 8lb line straight through to a size 10 korda hook, float will be a standard wagler float held by a float band. I've fished for carp with a float before but these were about 3lb, the average size of fish in this lake is 20lb, so wondering if I should beef my gear up a little. Any advice would be great thanks 👍

    Light net?

    Hi my dad is having trouble using his net, once it hits the water it sinks and is heavy for him to use. Are the ones with the double floats much better or can some recommend one? Thanks
  6. Down here you get people going on benders on the bank, drinking around the clock and sniffed out of their heads.. They are an accident waiting to happen 😐
  7. Starting to wonder if my day ticket lake has had it. There were reports of otter kills a few years ago (unfenced) anyway, I've noticed over the last 2 years catch rates have dropped, but also the number of people fishing has dropped. On a weekend if you wasn't here by 6am you wouldn't get a swim, people would be queuing outside the gates waiting for it to open. In the winter on a weekend the lake would be half full easily. anyway, I would say the last 5 or so times I've been here this summer it has been practically empty with 2 maybe 3 people fishing. Theres something going on I reckon 🤔
  8. No doggo today, starting to feel lonely 😂😂😂 but casted at showing fish and had a knock already 😁
  9. 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

    August catches

    Awesome fish mate, what is your float fishing setup? I want to give it a go lol
  11. 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.
  12. 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 😁👍
  13. Just been and got a loop tyer, gonna give it a go 👍👍
  14. 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 👍
  15. 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 👍👍
