    Well the otters are robbing us of our quarry. Current state of our great government, by the time it gets agreed all the fish will be gone anyway!!! I hope fishery owners take reasonable steps to manage this pest. What wiped them out before?? Do it again?

    Why not start a petition for lethal means of control?? Surely there's more fishermen than tree huggers??

    I can't believe that only 12,000 people signed the petition to government to consider a cull. We need to get 100,000 Does this government realise, the amount of revenue from carping alone! Fisheries are a business & its hard enough, without the risk & high probability of loosing the stock that gets anglers on the bank. I feel most are likely to close, forcing massive price increases, to the reminder & so as usual, the wealthy can carry on regardless, whilst common folk can go love themselves! Something has to be done?? I don't buy this whole nature will balance out with the top predator now flourishing poo that is wheeled out by the tree huggers & government
  5. Looking for a small, private lake, 4-5 angler's, April. Willing to travel an hour or so from Gatwick area. Looking at burghfield gold pool, https://www.advanced-angling.com/our-venues/burghfield-gold-lake/ or similar
  6. Numbers have increased to around 10 anglers so looking for somewhere a bit bigger now, if anyone has any suggestions please

    Let's start a petition to get something done about this lads! I'm not on Facebook or the others, but surely if we pool resources we can get 100,000 names. If not for us, then our kids & theirs!

    Do they own or rent it? Have they tried a EA or local authority, business loan/grant? My friend rents 2 small lakes from local council, they just spent alot of money on the damns. They haven't even put his rent up. There are several good fish farms local to me. Fry upto 40+ lb, give it 5_10 years it could / should get back to form. + fencing obviously. How big is it

    "Decent" barbless hooks????

    I looked at these a while back, when a certain venue allowed/recommended them. I posted on here! Only one reply! Said they were OK! I'd consider buying a pack if I had to fish a barbless venue.

    Time will tell, got a good feeling about the estate venue this year

    bait boat

    There's one for £18, 😂!! Ive always thought carp tax has driven these remote control boats to extortionate prices. I'm no expert but for this boat, new motors are around a tenner the battery pack is around £20. If it puts my rig & bait in a spot I cannot cast to, why does the cost of it matter??
