    Carpbell_ll got a reaction from chillfactor in Thought of the Day pt.2   
    Looks like fun need a tea boy or a chain lad once built three bridges on the M40 lol did the marking out for the diggers right up to marking out where the bearing plates would sit on top of the concrete that the steel crossbeams sit on., it was the only job they would give me due to age seventeen had to be eighteen to get a labours job. 
    The guys with a good trade or their own 360 machine were making real big money being in the engineers team i got to work with most of the trades always a good bit of competition to see which trade was earning the most. 
    That area and the whole of Warwickshire could do with a few decent big fish venues something like a Linear fishery in south Warwick would make someone a lot of money.

    Don't be ridiculous @Highy🤣. Where's the challenge in being constantly busy catching pasties? You'd be bored after the second session mate. By all means do a bit on the side but as a straight swap...... no way man!

    Got out for a bit last week and struggled for the most part with the carp showing way out of range but did manage this old original common to save a blank.

    Best video of the day on YT bar far a colourisation of Warwickshire it really is striking to see just how much is still the same i knew all the places in this video and most of the buildings are still the same, the river Avon looks even more carpy back then than now. 
    Loads of other good videos on that channel.

    One of the reasons i no longer jump on Barston of all places for a runs water, had it with two grown men and their scabby dogs, i was fishing the bottom far corner casting down to the margins weekday afternoon not busy, two guys come down get the same idea and drop in the few pegs between me and the bottom corner, to cut a loud shouting match short they ended up at the other end of the lake and i was getting a beating at some point, i stayed for my three days as planned with no beating, but i'm not putting up with that so not really been back since.

    Just a few shots from yesterday lost what felt like a lump after 10 minutes 3 weedbeds to have a hookpull to someone else’s line and setup about 30 foot of line and a heli setup at least it’s not in the lake no more

    You’ll need to get more sections they are very deceiving honest. Pucka bit of kit but to truly use them get more sections. You can use the wind to bend them right around into carpy spots

    Carpbell_ll reacted to Grodslok in Non-PVA funnel web?   
    This one is branded JAXON, and instructions are in polish, so yeah, highly unclear. The local tackle shop has a small shelf of mixed angling stuff; some hooks, floats, sinkers and feeders, three kinds of groundbait, and the occasional bag of boilies and other oddballs. The shopkeeper is mostly into fly fishing, and some perch, so he has the section under the premise "some people buy angling stuff, they probably know what they're looking for".
    Agreed. I've been fishing for thirty-odd years, but mainly spinning and some fly fishing, only got into coarse fishing a year ago, so it's still a whole new playground. 
    Also, angling in general is a quite small niche in Sweden. Back here it's the stone age, and two of our shops beginning to offer maggots by the pint is this year's sensation.

    Carpbell_ll reacted to Grodslok in Non-PVA funnel web?   
    Had my first session today, 3 hours in I decided to reel in to put on a new PVA stick and recast. Apparently I failed to notice the "non-" bit on my funnel web pack, and thus hauled in a slimy turd of pellets and groundbait in bright white stockings. Felt like a right bell-end when I checked the packaging more thoroughly 🤔.
    So, what's Non-PVA stuff for? Cray-proofing boilies? Chum-bags for pike fishing? 
    Was only 2 quid, so I won't be crying blood over it, but I'd better get the real stuff for next session, I think it can improve my presentation a wee bit.

    Better than a bait boat for it's range, seen a few guys do well with those nice neat baiting and rig placement without the waders or oil tanker wiring across a small lake,  being super cheeky with one a guy would cast a bare lead over to the far margins nip round with a baiting pole, bait and rig, that works.

    Last day of the month and managed a 24-4 from the Islands at Warminster as well as a 12 lb'er. Luckily the fish decided to crash out which made location a bit easier. Decided to leave the spod at home and just went with PVA bags. It was pretty cold overnight and might be looking for a 6 season sleeping bag!
