    Bad fishing days....

    I was standing butt naked in my chesties at this point. Then I remembered seeing the wash room. Bring naked in chest waders is not a good feeling believe me

    Bad fishing days....

    Last winter, getting my rig in down the right hand margin, took me 7 underarm casts and still didn't look perfectly presented. I sat down and had a tea, after having a word with myself I tried again, only to take half a step to far and slipped in up to my left arm pit. Strangely I had a diagonal line of water from my right hip right the way across to my left arm pit. Miraculously I'd managed to keep hold of the rod without getting the pva bag wet. Luckily the water was a boating lake, and they had a washing machine and tumble dryer to hand on site but it did mean I had to sit there with a towel over my mid range for an hour while I got my clothes dry.

    What is your newest purchase

    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.

    A Bit Of Interactive Bank Chat

    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 the carp on a regular basis. As you can imagine my ears pricked up at this point and the decision was promptly made to stay for the duration of winter. Anyway, I'm counting down the days until next week, at least I've managed to score some brownie points with getting some bits done on the house and give her a hand with some early Christmas shopping 😉

    winter plans

    I'm sticking with my tough water, winter is a but of an unknown as no one really fishes it as it's hard enough during peak times, but I'm settled and looking forward to seeing a few more drop off as it gets colder 🙂
  8. 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.

    Shelf life boilies

    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.

    Flavour Of The Week

    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 some homemade bait makers are looking for something to replace their own inadequacy for banking fish. Bait is thrust as the end all and be all, get it in and they will come. Bait doesn't deserve the name it's made for itself, the anglers who are consistently catching deserve the credit. Bait, like rigs are just small pieces of a big jigsaw.

    Flavour Of The Week

    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 Acid. We're frequently told that we shouldn't listen to hype, well I think this is hype, it's what everyone wants to hear, playing on the guilt of anglers. Yeah sure we all have a responsibility to the care of the fish we catch but come on people look at it from outside the box. Carp aren't only eating your boilies, there's an abundance of food items present in every single venue around the country, man made and natural. A bait doesn't have to be a nutritionally packed item to catch fish. Once more I have proof. Let's look at some of the best anglers around. Darrell Peck, admitted he knows very little about bait yet catches. Simon Crow was with Nash, he caught fish, he's now with DNA, still catches fish Ian Macmillan was with dynamite, he caught fish, he's now with DNA, he catches fish. Gaz Fareham was with ccmoore, he caught fish, he's now with sticky, he still catches fish. Adam Penning was with mainline, he caught fish, he's now with sticky, guess what, he still catches fish. Look at our very own nige, (sorry nige but your the best example I can think of) used essential baits he caught fish, now uses Nash, guess what, he still catches fish. Terry Hearn, has the bait world at his knees, and still he catches on tigers. I bet non of the baits above are nutritionally perfect, they catch fish, and again they don't cause any harm. Jim Gibbinson once wrote Some anglers who subscribe to the HNV theory catch fish. Some anglers who subscribe to the HNV theory don't catch fish. Some anglers who don't subscribe to the HNV theory catch fish. Some anglers who don't subscribe to the HNV theory don't catch fish. Never a truer word It's all about the angler
