  1. i'm thinking of getting a cheap one for mid water fishing would use a deeper for that as well, when it comes to margin fishing i just love the cast or walking it out. i wouldn't get away with using a boat for snag fishing lake owners alway give me a shifty look for casting to snags as it is. you would think having my rods clamped into the ground on singles and the wet waders from checking what my line is on would let them know i sort of have half a clue.

    Dogs and fishing

    oh well no reg, can't blame them he was suited for a family so bound to get first dibs on a friendly pup, there is a Harrier that looks nice soft and friendly but they want him to go to a home that has a friendly dog to show him it's ok to toilet off the lead, had that before with dogs. he also don't like most other dogs so that's going to be a struggle. do like the look of him though, looks fast.
  3. Don't think cybrox got banned he always good for a page or two CM could sneak back in unless they IP-ed him. no joke you only need to tie a palomar these days and your fishing, loops by korda i use them make a nice combi rig.
  4. Thanks for that. I want to take my grandson to a runs water and I thought Cuttle Mill might fit the bill. I could not find any reports on the Cuttle Mill site.

  5. still open get a few pics come up on my FB plenty of other waters these days if you want similar in warwick bishops bowl has two good carp waters nice quiet place with no road noise or street lighting wherever i end up this year it will be far from any A roads.
  6. the whole of KWP gets weedy from june on, don't know what is going on they do a pricey night ticket on canal pool but they seem to have a lot of problems on that water they had to close it last year and get pumps in. think they had a weed boat out for one day last year on canal three fishable swims in mid summer for a water that size is a bit too wild.
  7. Very nice, pike are the fish that put me off lure fishing i just don't want to catch them as they are too soft out the water.
  8. Fair weather angling is the best angling, don't worry about tying rigs Dan sorted that one a few years back, loops and booms or a chod on a boom, oh and there's 30lb fish all over the place a couple of thirties a summer is easily do-able. You might find the banks are not as full as they used to be bar the popular spots at the weekends, carpmachine copped a perma ban, came close myself, and the Cell still has not blown. If you have the time making a real good home rolled bait really does get a good response on waters that have all the best baits going in on the regular if i was going to put maximum effort in to anything carpy it would be fresh rolled bait. Horse tips? your like the Bricktop of carp angling accent and everything.
  9. Wowzzer, see Coventry Carp Baits is closing surprised by that as he did shift a bit, wonder if he will reopen as something else? I know getting good ingredients is silly money unless you import it yourself but he was never that big with sales. think he may of had enough as well sometimes he used to look worn out? Nice guy great bait maker all about the food signals really does pull the fish in.

    OK, so reg popped up and he is just right gat carpin dog all over him, got my bid in not holding much hope other than he sounds like a proper jack by nature some people don't like that in a busy home so maybe. https://www.dogstrust.org.uk/rehoming/dogs/dog/filters/eve~~~~~n~~/1251906/reg
  11. my mate has had a few break ins on his window cleaning van no idea what they hope to find bar a few manky scrims, he put a load of cameras up on the van just films them breaking in.
  12. watched it last night makes you want to get out
  13. nothing as yet but i'm feeling real keen not going to tie myself to one water could get a local ticket but it's not really my kind of water, thinking KWP and bishop bowl, plus i'm having some me time mid spring going to pack the car up and head to a few places, will be getting the rear gear for my barrow i reckon might try one of those new big fisheries first norton or linears should get a few on the bank come mid feb if it's nice out.

    That's a nope for ben and sam, gutted about that could of had a lovely pair of dogs there, they were right, would love to know where they came from, deff british or irish. So i won't be spent out this side of the new year, wonder if WL will take my deposit, don't think i will be getting Murle, any other mix i'd be fine with but i meet a lot of serious pet terrier keepers when out, might get the odd frown.
