  1. What is your newest purchase

    Yeah not bad mate, I’m catching on it so no complaints so far.
  2. What is your newest purchase

    Just cancelled my urban order as i found it on Fishing republic for £26 for 5kg so i now have 5x5kg of nutcracker 1x5kg of tuna and garlic (not tried before) and 1x5kg of spicy red fish (not tried before). Thats me sorted for a few months!
  3. What is your newest purchase

    I have them already for my own fishing and they are spot on for what i need. I can have my alarms, The tackle safe, Bobbins and some leads in the one bag. Great for the way i fish.

  5. The Cheating Thread

    Right i think im going to pick one up. Dont care for the fish finding, But if i can map a few swims and its consistant with my notes, Having that confidence that what im getting with a lead and float is correct then that will make it worth every penny. Just one question, I dont want to lose this from a crack off or anything so are you guys tying this straight to braid with a palomar knot or are you going for Mono and a leader or?
  6. What's on your Christmas list?

    Carp. Just 1, if theres more then great, but if i can nick 1 i will be happy.
  7. Elveden Center Parcs

    So just to update. I did 3 sessions of about 3 hours 7 til 10, had about 12 carp ranging from 5/6lb to 14lb i think was the biggest. I fished on the opposite side from the beach, Didnt pay any ticket or anything so all good! the fish battled like mad, I guess because they are not really fished for. I fished in the margin one evening which wasnt very effective (did get the 14LBer from there) the rest were in open water with a small PVA bag and a few boilies shot out in the general direction every so often. If i didnt catch after 20 minutes i recast. For any course fisherman, Theres some big roach and rudd in there, I changed to corn and the silvers and small carp went mental, after 3 chucks i changed back to boilie! Very enjoyable.
  8. The Cheating Thread

    See i think its great that its able to confirm what you think is out there in terms fo depth, weed etc. That itself will help improve me as an angler as i could be reading a swim all wrong.
  9. The Cheating Thread

    lol this conversation between you about this is exactly the inner monologue i have every time i blank or see one advertised!
  10. The Cheating Thread

    See now i find that really hard to lead about to find suitable marks in the dark. The area is very silty anyway so i have an idea of the make up of the bottom but it terms of slopes/ledges/holes i dont think i can really do that without a marker, I cant anyway.
  11. The Cheating Thread

    Have kept an eye on this topic as its very close to me, Im currently or have been for about a year been toying around with getting a deeper. On one hand, Yeah i kinda think its cheating, The same as a bait boat, like someone has mentioned, most lakes are castable, and casting is a skill to be mastered. On the other hand, my last 2 sessions i have arrived at 5/6 PM and been off at 6:30AM, i havent seen the sun, i havent heard anything distinctive jump and to be honest when i think a carp may have jumped, its pitch black, i know the direction but no idea where! My set up last week was 3 zigs at different depths, I know the swim is up to about 12 foot in places but i couldnt get a marker out to confirm as i wouldnt have been able to see it....why isnt there a glow in the dark marker? I lost a fish that night. Sunday just gone i kept 1 zig out at the same depth as the week before, which had a take but hit into nothing and the other 2 rods on solid bags which produced 1 tench, if im honest the move to solid bags was because im practically pub chucking......whats the difference between catching via a pub chuck or catching by selecting a spot with the help of a deeper? between now...and when the sun is up before 6 and down after 7 i have 1 DAY to fish.....
  12. What is your newest purchase

    Without sounding like a complete spanner.....which i might be, Can i just fit the normal gas cannisters to these? Like the ones in the link below? (these are not the exact bottles i use). https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/Marksman-Butane-Gas-Canisters-4-Pack/1605484002
  13. Angling Direct

    Yep, find they are spot on when i use them in Stanway, although i did tend to deal with Glenn as i have been on the bank with him a bit on layer or bovi but his gone now. I brought some shares in them when they started selling them, as long as they employ people that fish and fish different styles they will be fine.

    The carp cast is a really good podcast and are really great to listen to whilst on the bank.
  15. Winter Baits

    Yeah that was the plan, the tail rubber was barely on and i wet the clip before hand, its the first one i have set to drop and it not drop, i was thinking last night that this maybe because the bite was a drop back, And whilst the fish was fighting hard, its was quite a smooth battle with the fish mainly holding its ground, not really bolting or really shaking its head.... who knows. I went to a size 10 hook as well....maybe i will up it back to an 8.
