  1. Definitely. I rarely use it, I prefer to only use my headtorch on red when necessary or citronella tealights through summer but these winter night sessions you need some light so you dont fall asleep! 😂
  2. I also needed to charge my RM light for the second time in 12 months after my friday night session. Weird coincidence!! Boilies look great, it's something I have toyed with in the past but never use with any consistency due to using the throwing stick a fair bit. coated baits dont go anywhere really.
  3. For simplicity you can’t beat a multi rig. Just two loops in coated braid. but like any rig you have to be able to tie it properly and use it properly too. imo everything has its purpose, you wouldn’t lash a supple hair rig with a bright pop up at a single show. Or use one on a crayfish infested lake. We always have to keep an open mind about rigs and use what’s appropriate based on; stock levels, angling pressure, nuisance species, crayfish, lake bottom, weed, what bait we are using, how we are baiting up, and plenty of other factors, even the genetics/physiology of the fish.
  4. If you want to use his spots then have the sticks 12ft apart otherwise you’ll end up short of those spots. i.e. if you did 11ft wraps you’d end up 10ft short, losing 1ft per wrap you did. you could always work out the additional ft required from 12ft wraps and use 11 or 10ft wraps and then not tell anyone that you do this, they’ll all fish long if they happen to find out what wraps you’re fishing at 😂 sneaky!
  5. Corkballs are your answer then. Cork dust is useless imo. You’ll end up with good wafters though. hand rolling with large cork granules works. or make your own pop up mix? No idea how though.
  6. Tell this to the carp in the pit I fished earlier this year. One 1oz lead within 20 yards and they’d move and never return!! leading around imo has to be done. Preferably on a Recce trip before fishing.
  7. I’ve done well on pop ups over particle in the past. But it can be very water dependant and how the individual fish feed too. I know Kev Hewitt published an article a long while ago about fishing double fake corn on a chod over particle and catching well too. I’m similar to yonny, I’ll fish pop ups a majority of the time over any lake bed. Only time I don’t is when using tigers or peanut hookbaits. Saying that I should probably use snowmen more often.
  8. Trying his hardest to get you blacklisted from other lakes I bet.
  9. yes mate defo agree with that! defo looks toastier!
  10. Same again. That Sherpa lining looks so warm and comfy. it was a toss up between this and the new jrc one.
  11. Quick tip. Roll them down to the boot and you’ll get them on and off easily. Don’t wear them all the time as they be insufferable. alternatively if you’re going through the summer when it’s hot, you could always just buy some £5 sea shoes and pack your trunks? Quick dip to cool down, dry off quickly and saved yourself a few quid!
  12. I dont see why it wouldnt work mate. I'd just check the ingredients to see if there is anything apart from pure salt in it!
  13. Im sure you can use it. What's your plan for it? Personally I use himalayan rock salt to add to spod mixes or to coat baits.
  14. Just done my first night on my new bedchair. Early birthday present, the avid benchmark lite system. Been a long time coming as my old one was literally falling apart! I will be purchasing a bedchair cover for the colder nights as it 100% needs it. Got my eye on the cult tackle Sherpa lined one. Other than that it was very comfy!
  15. This is key, freeze with the water its cooked in or normal water. Alternatively when defrosting make sure its covered in water or saved cooking juices. Otherwise you end up dehydrating it again. defrost 2-3 days beforehand too so it has time to soak the juices back in!
