  1. @salokcinnodrog Hey buddy long time no speak, Hope your well? i know you know this area pretty well.
  2. Hey all, So someone mentioned to me recently her partner was fishing Elmstead Res...i have never heard of it, was wondering if anyone had any info? A quick look on google maps shows some big slabs of water so any info of lakes in the area would be useful. Im currently fishing the Match Pit near there so looking to join some waiting lists for when i eventually move on.
  3. Yeah thought the bag was great, Used it right through winter. Only changed when i got a Nash Indulgence bed.
  4. brought the bushwhacker, the standard length just isnt enough so i ended up buying the 20 extra sections....its expensive i dont want to add up the cost, but if it catches a few fish its worth it!
  5. Hi guys, Any suggestions? I know Nash do one thats hardly in stock. I have the bushwhacker and 20 poles, Need to store them in a bag as the extras came in single packaging. Any suggestions?
  6. 3 Korda zig floats....I think my winter fishing is all going to be based around zigs. going to be really active, 3 spots, working the depths every 20 minutes (adding or taking a foot or 2)...if i get to the top or bottom, then i cast further and go again...if they are in front of me i will find them!...until i go to sleep!
  7. Some well thought out ideas here. might have to buy some of the stuff myself.
  8. lol a few have been caught out already this year doing that.....1 bloke on the caps ticket who mentioned he had left a bucket in the car park...only for someone to find and open it....full of tigers...
  9. most sessions since blanking has involved no pellet no nuts unfortunately.
  10. So after a great start on this years ticket (2 in the first few over nighters) i have been on a 2 month blank. Solid bags (pellet and popup) and some spod/throwing stick particle and boilie doing the damage, however this venue has less then 40 carp and a good few hundred bream, this led to most sessions being destroyed by them, so larger baits, crumb instead of pellet in the bag/no bags at all, Less spodding etc etc all the normal stuff, but since then i haven't had a carp...but the bream are still a problem (i have had them on 5ft zigs). So the wife has given me Thursday and Friday night to s
  11. Nash bushwhacker. Need to get to the fish that are hiding in places i cant fish.......thats whats im blaming on my 2 months of blanking anyway!
  12. Hello, I need to get some storm poles for the V2 brolly. I dont suppose anyone knows whats size i need?
  13. Oh amazing thanks! now to find someone that stocks them or can order them in for me!
  14. Quest Outerblock - Returned as faulty - Replaced Quest Outerblock - Returned as faulty - Refund! Tempest V2 brolly second hand. door infill/groundsheet and winter skin with it. I have the mesh infill as well but i will never use it. Happy with it but god its low. I need to find the right storm poles for it to see if i can lift it a little! Fox RX+ x3 second hand for £400. Look brand new but missing the hardcases so i have dropped fox an email to see if they sell them...If not can anyone recommend a hard case for alarms? Im conscious that if they are not in some kind of protectiv
  15. I decided to go for a new Bivvy and went for the Quest Outer block. Ordered Monday night and arrived Wednesday, Great service. Took it to the bank Thursday and noticed it had a connector missing for the inner vapour sheet, The connector for the tension rope was also missing. I then noticed that the front right outer door section seemed to be sagging. After watching the set up video a 100 times and trying different things i still couldnt fix it. Contacted quest on FB messenger, They said they would give me some money off if i was happy to live with the connector missing. So i sent a few videos
  16. Afternoon gents. As im now being destroyed by bream using solid bags i want to have a look at helicopter rigs, I had the korda heli safe kit in my bag, Now the only problem im having is the no trace bead keeps popping off the chod sleeve. Im using lead free leader, Can anyone suggest some good replacement beads that will fit snug? Im flying through the No trace beads, Im assuming flying off on the cast they dont keep tight enough at all.
  17. yeah been a turd time. i have spent a while finding "that project", i didnt have any backup so now im just flirting about day tickets (SWP on Thursday night). If you do/can share details Nick feel free to PM me...be a few beers in it for you! Being kicked off Alton is a bit of a nightmare especially as you had started to have a few again this season. i would be pretty angry about that one!
  18. So finally get back on my feet after destroying my knee and losing a year. I then find a venue to join, Covid hits, the rules relax, I get booked on....Spawning! 2 weeks later i get my first session, Catch one, blank the second and hear the second biggest in the lake 40+ has died (my PB is 37lb and i would really like to beat that this year). the third week i find 1 dead myself, So now 6 so far are dead a 40, high 30's and a double....Venue has now been closed rightfully........God i feel this campaign is never going to get started and i have waited so long! Just incase this lake does go
  19. 1 tip - Social media is god. get people liking the stuff on instragram..Get it in peoples faces. feel free to put a link in here for us to have a nose and follow
  20. My first visit to my new ticket. Took the kitchen sink with me as I had no idea about the lake. Few friendly lads gave me an idea of the lake and its stock (only 40 carp apparently) so I wondered around the lake aimlessly looking for a sign of life. 3 hours later I had picked a swim. Only to see a fish jump a few swims down so quickly moved the gear down and by midnight I was into my first match pit carp. 32.2lb. Chuffed to get one on the first night.
  21. Just got myself my CPTAC ticket so now i get to attempt the Match pit that holds a fish that went 50 last year or the year before. Looks like its got some lovely fish from the few i have seen. Hopefully things go back to normal so the wife can get out the house and allow me to get going with the nights on there!

    Lol thanks mate. Felt great to be fishing, the leg didn't feel great, moving the barrow over slippery ground wasn't great but I can deal with a bit of pain if it means I can feel normal again! Just on the hunt to find a ticket for the year now!
