    Dogs and fishing

    Just back from dave's first visit very nice dog and unbelievably strong and solid nice and friendly with a happy personality, his only problem is he likes to nip like all terriers, so far he has a softer nip than my patterdale, my Cairn didn't nip she took chunks ( NOT OUT OF ME). Could be a problem due to his bite capability, the only real issue is a lack of boundaries but i did have him responding to basic stuff he very nearly sat on first asking even the staff haven't managed that, they have him responding for food at the mo works for so long but it also can be a problem if the handler is rewarding the wrong behaviour. got a visit on Monday with the behavior team to work out a strict training program for him, he is on a amber list so if it don't work he will go red and not to be rehomed. Just seen the biggest meanest Rottweiler i have ever seen i think it may of been a cross something like a Great Dane the dog was massive.

    Treats acquired cocktail sausage and chicken satay chunks, was going to take cooked and diced liver no sure they would be happy with that might be sensory overload. looking forward to getting up there i'm hoping he proper wants out. last time i went up there for a dog i came home with two.

    Going to visit Dave tomorrow English x Irish terrier found straying in Ireland have to get him some nice treats to bribe him with.
  4. never watched a RG show of anysort, to do with him marketing himself as your grannies eye candy.
  5. I can't watch his fishing shows talks way too much drivel when you consider people catch the largest of sharks, the day he wrestles a big shark after catching it i will be impressed.
  6. No afraid not, i doubt they are high value as they were mid range rods on release, very few used carp rod have a value that is more than the original price, i bought a set of used hyperloops when they were the top retail rod, i snapped both tips first time out with them casting small bags, must of been damaged i paid 20 for the set.
  7. found this seems they where about around 20 years ago, if they are British made they should be good quality for the time though they will be outdated in this age due to carbon tech moving forward since then. http://www.theanglersforum.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?52068-Big-Carp-voIume-19-issue-112
  8. nothing to do with me mate, there was a rod rage under the carpbell brand, my username is a play on my last name nothing more i'm afraid, if they were built in Coventry i may know who built them as there were a few rod builders about before you could buy good rods off the self.
  9. if you watch John Backers videos he names one of the all time best selling baits as a mix of ground Purina cat food crab meal crab flavour and binding flour, lead to monster sales.
  10. yes a fair bit of end tackle, the fused booms and leaders are good they are better than korda as they are pure fluorocarbon, tho combi booms are the best out there that fused section and ring really does make a neat rig. their lead clip leader with the long speed link is great on silty lakes.
  11. Noticed a bait just out called the fully loaded think it has all the above chucked in it, i don't like the companies sales tactics so i doubt i will use it plus i thought a seed base bait alone was so the fish could pass it through in cold weather at normal speed, where as a meat/fish bait would or could bung them up for a few days?
  12. the leads didn't make past the testing casts, worked ok until you try to control the line mid cast, you have to land it like a spomb or it wont release., be good for a pub chuck on a massive water like the north sea.
  13. i have often thought about getting a deeper, i think it would be too much for me i can't even work the how to use videos out, it would end up in the tackle box next to the gemini ARC lead system i have never used.
  14. Chris uses pellets as a supplementary feed uses big 20 mm on the little lake, did ask why not use boilies as he once did, but he got moaned at for basically baiting up for you? he was using Nash baits so they must be ok and he was selling them, just does the pellet now sells a sack for £28, bag of pellets and a yellow pop up was hammering the middle lake last winter and spring.
