    Carpbell_ll got a reaction from yonny in Snag fishing   
    I fish near to locked up most of the time due to the waters i fish being smallish with lots of weed beds little island bars and that, don't want to sound like some crazy dude that don't fish open water, i do like far bank margins though and to be honest most of the time it pays not to get to close the bottom of the rising slope is always a good spot.

    So long as your line is not crossing anything too snaggy and it's clear up to the snags you want to fish too it should be ok to fish locked up and sit near your rods there is a very good chance they will try for cover on a run but if you can hold them even for a brief second they will turn to slack line and head for open water and boy does a 20lb fish fight when it makes a run you will need to slacken the drag and let it run it does depend on the snags though with the right line rushes and reeds are fine I've strimmed a fair few when the fish has got into the reed bed a bit. sunken branches and tree roots i'd stay away from.
    It's good to have a solid set up with rear rod grips that lock and a set of waders to bait spots and hand drop rigs if you can make your way around  the margin areas.

    Pro tip for any vapers that order liquid online, been getting mine from Red Juice for the past few years and now have a bin liner full of large packing nuggets they always send even small orders in a box with nuggets it's a real good PVA and chunky,

    Just bought some new bits a Korum 1 metre leverage xt bankstick and two fox mini swingers to replace the jrc kurves, seen a nice set of nevile banksticks with the swan neck buzzbars they were up to 65 on the first day of listing i console myself in the thought my barrow don't need all that extra weight.

    I keep a can of Wilko insect spray on me but only as a last resort 50% deet, i mainly use those wrist bands as they do work, will also use citronella in the bivvy, would love a thermocell just a bit pricey. 
    The skin so soft needs constant application or very near gets a bit much.

    I got bite by what i think must of been a horse fly last year, on my hand before setting up the swelling was something else, luckily she packs me loads of sprays and creams plus antihistamine pills, but if you want instant relief from a bad bite, take a bottle of corsodl mouthwash and soak a cloth and press on the bite area, works a treat.

    I remember this day, it was cold and windy and we only got the one bite, but worth it in the end.  Good grief the hair!

    I've been a bit busy myself. Finally got my timber delivery so I set about building a gravel/ plant filter for my pond. 
    Before,

    And the finished filter. Water has cleared up already so very pleased with the result. Just need to tidy up the oxygen lines.
