    Yes mate the rise in temps had made me want to get out again!
    I'm quite lucky with the current situation, I got 2 fisheries and miles of canal river within 10 minutes of me. One of the fisheries is fully booked until mid next year and the other one is a small fenced pond of about an acre at most with another small pond next to it about half an acre. It's quite low stocked with some old fish in. It's quite a hard water but 1 of 2 is coming out at the moment so gonna give it a go tomorrow 👍 river is flowing too fast at the moment and not going to waste my time on canal carp at the moment lol.
    I've been sorting the shed out and found some tiger nuts so got them soaking, will have them on the boil tonight, also got some krill boilies soaking in vodka and krill liquid. Hopefully can tempt a carp tomorrow! Sorry to hear about your wife's accident, hopefully your situation improves soon!
    Nice mate have you caught anything yet? Luckily down here the temps ain't as bad, haven't seen any big freezes on the lakes in a while 👍

    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 👍👍 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 👎 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 👍

    I used to sharpen them but I hadn't noticed that I had  any more or less fish on the bank than before. There was no difference in hook pulls, you always get one for one reason  or the other so now I just them straight out the packet. Before it was fashionable to sharpen hooks I'd use the same one/rig for a whole weekend and often had multiple catches with the same hook so who knows

    I know a woman who was absolutely incredulous when I wouldn't go over to her house on a day off.  She said "Do you mean to tell me you'd rather go carp fishing than spend time with me?  Carp fishing in the rain?!"

    What files are people using? 
     
    I use Gardner muggas straight out the pack, maybe I should be sharpening them before I use them 🤷‍♂️
     
    I’ve also got the Gardner hook stone to touch them up after they’ve been used 👍 to be fair I’m not that confident with sharpening and not really sure if I’m making the hook sharper or not 🤷‍♂️😂 I normally change hooks or make new rigs 👍

    My wife once twisted all the eyes off a pair of century canon carp rods, snapped a pair of Neville alarms off the bank stick and slashed at the spools of my bait runners cutting all the line to shreds, then tipped the contents of the tackle box into the bin...

    That sort of shift change should be illegal, I have to do 2-10pm monday to Thursday then 10-6pm just the 4 hours earlier really throws me out of whack, perhaps I should be going for day naps, might be a good idea 💡

    Fair play mate, you got the right venue for this time of year! Lovely looking carp too. I’m gonna hit a runs water (in the summer anyway!) and see if I can bank the first fish of 2021 on Monday hopefully, only got 3-4hrs but it only takes a second to get a bite!

    It’s only a shallow lake and was frozen solid 2 days ago it’s only a small match lake I think the biggest in here is maybe a 20 right time of yr but it’s nice buzzards are around so not much bird life on the water   Yay 😁. Still mint condition and gave a good account for themselves
