    All for nothing not even paper work lol, they are putting those zones in all over the country Brum is getting one so is Cov of all places the town centre is small and not really car friendly as it is so they are trying to extend it right out into the outer areas. 
    I was looking at a LPG ford if i can find the right on i might grab it  or if diesel become too much of a cash cow might see about getting a petrol and having it converted to LPG, the millage costs on a decent petrol engine are high.

    ULEZ is a scam of he worst kind have you seen the size of some of the cars they are putting a 1 litre engine in maybe i'm missing something but those little engines don't last to long in a heavy car.
    It will only be a problem for diesel motors any petrol car after 2006 should be ok in the silly zone diesels have to be 2015 onward but that could change.
    Looking at the the KIA sportarge at the mo but want a diesel so will have to see what's what. could be some good deals coming up.

    Helicopter for me i'd go straight through on the mainline, but a bit of good quality tubing would be OK if you feel the need, rigs would depend on what the rig was fishing on, the choddy  or something like it would be best, or a wafter if you want something on the deck.

    Well the insurance settled on Friday they are giving me 926 in total, they based it on MOT history??? it was a real solid well looked after car,only had the last MOT this month and it failed  on a misty number plate and a worn Tyre, last year was just a Tyre no advisories. 
    So Saturday i went and looked at a 2002 CRV 104 K on he clock said to have service history, £850 right shed which is a shame got some awful smells coming from the engine after i took it for a proper 2nd 'n 3rd gear road test, so I walked on that.
    Also went to see a RAV 4 2003 97K no history other than online MOT which looked promising as it was done last march, came up as a back box fail and no ads, the amount of surface rust and some corrosion was outrageous, all that didn't come on in a year, it should of been listed on the mot as an advisory at least., so I left it.
    Shame people who buy a 4x4 and go laneing don't seal the undercarriage first. little bit of a knock from the dif but it was the rusty components that put me off, some big bills on that job.

    Sorry to read about your car , Carpbell .
    My experience was the reverse , i.e. my insurance company had the snotty ***** - who blamed me for the crash ! , but the other driver accepted responsibility ! .
    Enterprise , paid for by the other driver's insurance company , were very helpful .
    I was gutted to have my car written off , but my new ( used ) car is cheaper to run , so fingers crossed that somehow you come out of this better off .

    My new van which I spent out on 2 years ago , has recently cost me a shed load..... head gasket went when Kate was using while I was in France last time ... not good to come back to ! Spent more on it in 2 years than the old van cost me in 17 years on the road .

    Looks like i will be a new car for me after today, first crash in 23 years of driving the other driver accepted fault and their insurance company was on point. Can't say the same for the unhelpful stroppy bint at the car hire company, done all the claim the insurance company offered me a car and put me through to enterprise, they asked for a credit card or debit card i don't have any of those, so i said can i use the wife's, nope.... but...nope, the upside is i'm getting a 25 quid a day off road fee on top of my claim, which won't be a lot for a 20 year old fiesta with 90k on the clock, damn good car too i put 50k on it.  gutted.

    Sounds like they can be set up sensitive enough that a polish guy snoring two pegs down could set them off.

    I thought it was going to be a joke video, had a Polish guy in a peg behind mine this year it was like a tractor trying to start then cutting out again, he must wake up gasping for air.

    Carpbell_ll got a reaction from elmoputney in What's your plans for the new year?   
    Unsure as yet, will be doing some more at Stanwicks might give Elsons a go, fancy a visit to bluebells as i have never fished it.
    Local to home there is Bishops Bowl, i joined this year but they had to close in the summer due to a ammonia spike, i fished it a week before it closed you could smell that rotten smell coming from he water, could be down to mixing match fishing and large carp fishing? 
    What i would like is a year ticket for the night fishing at KWP but the price is quite high around the 500 mark, bit too rich for me.

    Carpbell_ll reacted to salokcinnodrog in Leader bans (leadcore, unleaded leader)   
    I don't like using a leader either, but this year I had to after I discovered that the bottom was littered with blocks of concrete, bricks, tiles etc, and the possibility of long casting. 30lb Amnesia to 15lb mainline!
     Basically I was fishing in a reservoir that is over old houses, a road and other such.
     
    The thicker leader meant I was able to fish, even so I still lost a couple of fish, snapped hooklink and one smashed above the leader on a helicopter set-up. I started a thread on that link below.
     
    As I said in that thread, I make sure my lead or rig can be ejected, a large run ring that will pass over any snapped end, or if a helicopter set-up, a rig that can come off the end. You DO NOT want the lead ejected on a helicopter set-up. It is the lead that allows the rig to pull free, so no to Heli-safe for me as I think that is one item that is not safe.

    Used to be PG all the way then they brought out their more expensive range, the quality dropped on the basic PG bags so i gave yorkshire a try they are strong but i sometimes leave the tea bag in the cup as i like a strong brew mrs hates it really does stain the cup and teeth lol.

    That's the ones, i wouldn't call them a one fish/cast hook like i have seen written about them, they are definitely sharpened to the max once dull there is no room for a tidy up.

    main thing to check is that the hook is razor sharp at all times my friend so always check the hook point

    Carpbell_ll got a reaction from carpyian in Beginner question - Ready rigs   
    You will get a variety of answers to that, but as with all rigs it's all about the condition of the hook as that will be first to go as it gets dull, you can sharpen the hook and it will be good to go again, plenty of videos on hook sharpening, and you can get fine gage files from the pound shop that will the job no need to spend on carp brand files.
    To be fair there are a lot better options for easy rig making, try the booms by korda or gemini, you can add and remove the hooks at a lot cheaper rate than pre tied rigs. if you learn to tie a simple blow back rig with soft braid you can tie that to a boom loop giving you a very good combi rig and making up the ronnie rig is very easy with a quick link boom. save some money in the long run.
