  1. I’m just hoping I don’t get flooded out. It’s been hammering it down earlier. My van is locked up safely in a marina nearby so if I need to evacuate then god knows where I’m going to pitch up the bivvy
  2. I’m set up ready to go. Sadly the river is up but I reckon if it drops slightly it’ll be alright. Don’t think the carp will venture out the marina in to the flow though.
  3. luckily its useless as a fish finder, yes you will find fish as it travels over a certain location but that means nothing at all. A fish could swim underneath it and it will show up, could be the other end of the lake before you have reeled the deeper in. I was sceptical of them even as mapping tools but after seeing them in use they are brilliant bits of kit. If someone uses it to find fish then more fool them as it just doesnt work like that.
  4. What about the kettles and stoves then? Pay a good few quid extra for a trakker logo on the side? Naughty that. Like Nige says, most of it adapted for anglers in one way or another. But sometimes it’s straight up the same product with a logo on. Or logo taken off. Can not justify that.
  5. My mum worked in a secondary school in a deprived area. She used to tell me about the English teenagers who would tell her they weren’t doing exams, etc. Because their dole for life parents had taught them how to get the most money out the system, including having children at 15/16 to get a council house ASAP. Never did an immigrant child say the same to her. Immigrants might play the system but so do the British. The problem is in the system that allows them to do it. You shouldn’t get anything if you’ve not paid in. Or you get much much less than someone who genuinely has worked and needs to fall back on financial help in a time of need.
  6. One of the unnecessary items that isn’t really needed but the tackle tarts will love imo. Carp have been caught on “un-neat” snowmen hookbaits for decades. Why do they suddenly need to be neat? Who knows. Does it matter what the snowman looks like? Course not. Will people buy it? Course they will.
  7. they did to it on their brolly though, the fact cyprinus can sell the exact same thing for so much less...cyprinus have ended up exposing a few firms for overcharging.
  8. what about this one then https://www.anglingdirect.co.uk/aqua-black-series-rig-tying-tray
  9. Yeah mate. I’ve used it for chods over weed plenty. Personally still prefer unleaded leaders for over weed but the avid stuff does do the job.
  10. I had a little go with them a few years ago through a uni friend. The pop ups are decent. The pink ones are really nice. I got a load of the switch. Didn’t rate it at all. Had a meaty/yeasty smell to it. I think the S7 is their best bait by the looks of what everyone uses in catch reports.
  11. I use this knot Shockleader knot and it is very very strong. I’ve never come close to breaking it. I’ve even straightened out hooks on snags. I use avid outline if I’m using an fluoro leader. It straightened out very well and sinks well but is supple enough to lay nicely. It’s as invisible as you can get underwater too as it’s got a smokey brown pattern to it unlike other white clear fluorocarbons.
  12. Get the fox edges easy splice. No needle, just a fine wire twisty thing. Makes it a doddle compared to a needle.
  13. This. I very much doubt if people are caught by the EA they are not being prosecuted. They prosecute if you are caught more than 10m from your rods. It could be a case of the underfunding they have in enforcement in every area holding things up or stopping proceedings but that is a case for central government and DEFRA to be lobbied about.
  14. I'd say if they are excreting whole food items then no digestion is happening at all, its in with one and out with another. There will be literature around carp digestion out there for sure
