  1. Congratulations yonny, 2 to 3 years? Ben's now 6 and I'm still struggling to get out lol
  2. Stick on an inline lead with sleeve to keep tubing straight then cut a point into your mainline. I used to use tubing all the time and I do understand the frustration of line threading. The option above I've found to be best.
  3. I've not been able to fish for the last 6 weeks and I doubt I'll be going until the kids are off next week. The club have been trapping crayfish with margin nets, they do own other waters but I just don't fancy fishing them, too busy for my liking. Apparently the metoffice have given mild conditions until mid December so I'm hoping it holds out for a couple of months yet before we see any significant freezes. I've been chatting with a couple of coarse anglers I've gotten to know this year. They were surprised at the lack of carpers fishing last winter, especially as they had seen th
  4. Great vid, I've watched it 4 times alresdy 😊
  5. Dumbell bottom baits, I believe an elongated bait is harder to eject than a round one, plus the rig I use for bottom baits relys on the weight of the bait to turn the hook. Pop ups I do use from time to time, bright baits for Hinged Stiff Rigs and a match the hatch for my lower multi/pop up rig. I can't really call it a multi as I use shrink tube for a kicker so it's just a low pop up rig really. The dumbell I'll sometimes cut in half and use a tiger or a couple of bits of maize, it totally depends on the situation.
  6. Wow you really have got it in for shelf life boilies, Show us on the dolly where the naughty boilie touched you
  7. Back to the original post, ccmoores live system shelf life boilies are quite soft or you have the option of heat treating what ever boilie you want with hot water. Poor on hot lake water an hour or so before to really soften baits up. If your paranoid about losing any attractions mix in a dollop of matching liquid.
  8. Knotless knot for bigger hooks, whipping knot for smaller hooks
  9. Shhhh we only talk about the P word with the curtains closed
  10. I'm just looking at the bait situation as a whole from outside the box. Yes I believe if your making your own bait and you have the time and money you should make it as nutritious as possible, but I don't think nutrition adds to a baits appeal, not in the way it's being thrust upon us all of late. I've often said aminos have wrongly taken centre stage but that seems to of shifted into guilt tripping potential buyers into buying what they believe to be the most nutritious bait out when in reality, fish get caught on all manner of things. I would even go as so far to say that so
  11. Bait Nutrition I know this has been done to death but I thought I'd start it off from a slightly different angle with a question. Is bait Nutrition the end all and be all of bait? For me No I don't think it is, once more I'd like to point out, nutrition doesn't catch fish. Further more I'll make a distinctive point, lower nutrition doesn't equate to a harmful bait. The two subjects couldn't be any further apart. A generalisation I know but, personally I'm bored of seeing nutrition this and nutrition that, it's a new buzz word that has replaced the older words of Amino
  12. People are allowed to have and voice an opinion, non of the lads on here mean any harm, do you think sticky would be bothered by the comments? Na, maybe you should chill out a little and take it all in your stride
  13. How very dare you besmirch the name lol I quite like sticky I must admit, you be careful chilly I'll make you do lines 😁
  14. A lot of this distrust and animosity toward bait companies comes from these Facebook groups, from supposed ex employees or disgruntled hearsay mates from the trade. Don't fall into the trap of believing everything you hear or read. Kev Knight, Gary Bayes, Keith Sykes, Ian Moore, Geoff Kemp, Bill Cottam, Geoff Bowers, Ken Townley, Mike Willmott and many more were all making baits while I was a glint in the milkmans eye. They know what their doing, if they didn't, they wouldn't of survived as long as they have. I've browsed these groups and they all have one thing in common and that's the
  15. Lol some still do Without knowing exactly who uses what, it's not my place to speculate. Some shelfies have a use by date, which tells me preservatives haven't been used or at least inferior products such as sugar solutions have. By inferior I mean these solutions won't preserve a food item for as long as a chemical synthetic variation. You say preservatives are still used, maybe they are, but how do you know without knowing the ins and outs of every company out there, it's all speculation.
