  1. It matters not one iota on the size of the fish. You put the effort in and you reaped the rewards. Congratulations.
  2. That can't work - although you possibly/probably wont agree - the string will give a totally different reading each and every time you attempt to prove your point due to fibres being stretched/amount of twists in the 'string' and the thickness of the 'string' that you are using in comparison with the elastic band. Do you believe that the readings would be the same if the elastic band was 3 inches in width and you use a string which has 3 twists? Parcel string would give a different reading/result than say 'mat' string - but hey - you and your followers would no doubt deem that as being pedantic, but I would argue that it is factual and that you didn't explain yourself in your post which is why I reply to you. What you have failed to realise is that all the 'relevance' that you are attempting to prove via your maths is irrelevant due to velocity of cast. Answer this - if you are clipped up at 60 yards and you cast at a velocity of 10 yards per second - and somebody else is clipped up at 60 yards with a cast velocity of 12 yards per second - will the lead end up at exactly the same place?
  3. R O F L M A O Funniest reply I have read for many a long time.
  4. Post# 34 within this thread has been answered eloquently. Thank you very much for that.
  5. I used to do very similar with chilli powder and a couple of other powders, buzz, but it was in a Woolworths bag and not a rucksack.
  6. Androoooo - I had no doubts whatsoever that Nige was spot on. No doubts whatsoever.
  7. Two very good outlets to purchase spices and herbs, should you wish to experiment and not very expensive for trial and error. If you are thinking of going the spice route - strongly recommend trying Szechuan Pepper. It has a profile that is extremely appealing to Mr/Mrs carp. In fact - it has been reported by experts far more knowledgeable than many/most bait makers (both manufacturers and home enthusiasts) that part of its profile is 'possibly' the most potent attractor known to man/woman. http://www.thespiceshop.co.uk/ http://www.thespiceshop.co.uk/
  8. This 'rule of thumb' you mention, Androoooo - how long is it? - does it have a knuckle? Is there a black nail on the end? Is the nail clipped? More importantly - is it your thumb or that belonging to somebody else. I ask the latter question due to it possibly changing to an index finger by the end of the thread if it doesn't belong to you.
  9. Dependant on which method you use, but at a shout - I'd say a container of Vim with a dash of Oxo and a topping of 100 'n' 1000's.
  10. Be off with you for posting a donkey choker pineapple boilie on the line. http://imgur.com/XIwQyEb
  11. Yes!!! You worked your maffs out using Piefagorrus theorum. 2 portions of kidney to 1 portion of steak.
  12. Education? Coming from a doughnut that hasn't the inclination to follow a red squiggly line under a word to alert you that the word is spelt incorrectly, and now you want to give a lecture on quantum physics? ROFLMMFAO...I bet you think Pythagoras even used peanuts, huh. It's not an issue, though - I've found the button again, mods.
  13. No, as you say- can't argue with Pythagoras's theorem as he isn't around to defend himself, but the genius that he was - well, I'd edge bets that he would see the futile sense, and it certainly is futile, of using his theorem to score brownie points (and being so wrong I still haven't stopped laughing), and then to cap it all - as is your usual trait of being an obnoxious, arrogant fool, not to mention pig ignorant in ridiculing somebody, quote ' you are out of your depth mate, forget it,...' unquote. Do you crack the fat when you mock others? Should I grab my coat again?
  14. Where has the post vanished too that was posted at 3.46pm today? ,... and then you have to take into account wind direction and force of wind (if any), diameter and type of line being used, under-current of water (if any), power of cast(er), arc of casting line, weight (lead) being used,.... So many variables to be taken into account that maths will fall short - unless of course we are talking straight lines on paper and no opportunity for human error Much better to allow experience to take the upper hand and go with the eye,...oh, hang on - re-wind,... how much 'give' would the line take if casting the 'bait boat'.
  15. Hmmmmmm - as a thought - have you bothered to google 'Hostile takeover' as well as the defence(s) that can be put into place by the current board members to remedy such a threat?
  16. I'll pay the next time I speak with Phil, Phil - which should be Wednesday apparently.
  17. Thank you very much, Phil. Your words are very much appreciated and makes all the hours/days/weeks/months/years spent reading, listening to experts and reading a wheelbarrow full more - the cost, the blanks and the tweaking so much more worth it.
  18. I think it goes like this, but I will stand corrected - once I have gotten up off from the 'not worthy' bowing. Absolute Goofees, emm. Stonkers the lot of 'em. Congratulations.
  19. I'm as happy as a dog with two of them for you Phil, and I'm not talking 'tails', and I wish you the best of luck for tomorrow.

    Female dogs.....

    When the love of my life was alive and just a puppy, my wife and I went to bed and my baby was tucked over with a blanket and left cuddling his 'baby' - a tennis ball that went everywhere with him. I made the silly mistake of leaving my work-boots in the vicinity of easy access to his gnashers. When I woke with the alarm at 0400 ready to go off to work - I went into the kitchen to check on my 'boy' and to let him out for a pee before going into the bathroom myself to have a S.S.S and S. Up the garden he went with his tennis ball - did what he had to do and came back in. Off he went - zoom - straight into the bedroom - nuzzling the wife to move over a bit and straight under the covers. Kettle on, ciggie lit and get ready for work. Now, I am sure that when I took my boots off after the previous days 6 till 2 shift the boots were highly polished, and I'm sure they had a top and did have a top and metal eyes which the lace is thread through?.....well, at approximately 0458 it was noted that the left boot had a lace and one side of the top of the boot, but the right boot only had a lace and was barely recognisable as a boot. Never did see the eyelets again, and I can promise you - I looked for weeks, and I mean 'looked'. Sadly, my baby is no longer with us after 15 years, but I can honestly say my heart was truly broken the day I had to take him to the vet. Love your dog, 'ammer, and your dog will love you more than her own life. Anyway - If it is any use to you - if your 'baby' starts to get bored, maybe leading to chewing furniture - get yourself 2 pairs of socks - preferably 1 pair of footy socks (but not a 'ammer pair - poor dog would be poorly with indigestion just looking at 'em, let alone putting them anywhere near the mouth) - now, with the normal socks, over a period of time (depending on how much you sweat), wipe under your armpits with 1 sock and wrap it inside the second 'normal' sock. Now, repeat using said sock until the socks take on the 'human scent'. When you are satisfied the smell is strong, place inside the footy sock. Now, do the same with the footy sock containing the pair of socks. After time and the smell etc etc,... place inside the last footy sock and tie off nice and tight up to the 3 internal socks. Do a good few knots up the sock and then offer to your dog. She'll instantly take to the scent and her boredom/thought of being alone (for want of trying to explain it differently) will be virtually zero, and your furniture will be saved. She may try to chew the sock, but just keep taking it away from her with a stern 'no', and then offer it her back. Rinse and repeat for as long as nessie-celery, but it wont be for too long. That gem was given to me by a work colleague who used to train dogs, that when trained; would 'talk' for hours if instructed to do so, and rip your arm off at the same time. I remembered it, and put it in to practise with my 'baby' quite a few years later, and he never ever chewed any furniture - boots yes, Chippendale, never. (OK, Ikea) That said - as Adam has mentioned - there is a massive difference between a dog trainer and a trained dog.
  21. Not exactly what you are looking for - I appreciate that - but take a mooch here,... http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=2+man+bivvy The 1 in question -2nd bivvy down Abode.... looks a really good 2 man, and sturdy too, what with the free tension bars.
  22. Phil - if you want to go thirds on a bag give a shout... and if anybody else you know wants to chip in to make it even easier, even cooler.
  23. Just like Mastercard, Hutch - Supergold 60 - never leave home without it
