    Genius required, what to buy the Mrs?

    Dependant on budget, get her a spa weekend, two birds one stone......the weekend she’s away you can go fishing for the weekend
  2. I have some of the reels to along with my shimano’s. The low twenty from margin was on the dwarf couple with a bp4 black reel. If the Titan hide is anything like the tc pro you’ll be happy with one 😉 as for the terry Edmonds comment pic below
  3. Just my two pennies, scopes are all I use these days, haven’t touched my 12fts in two seasons, I don’t dress like Alan Blair and definetly don’t wear nike trainers (Adidas in the summer) 🤣😂 dwarf 2lb 6 foot played a low twenty from a snaggy margin with no issues at all 10ft 3lb scopes are what I now use for most of my fishing, handled my current pb of 29lb again from snags with zero issues. As for casting capabilities just google terry Edmonds scope rods and see what you can find I don’t remember the distance but seem to think it was 170 yds on a prototype rod plenty of people don’t like nash gear......plenty of people do. Use them and make your own mind up 😉 tight lines

    I just always look a miserable [censored] mate 🤣 mas for bayeswater I have a 48 to sort out with bc at some point and no doubt I shall do some sessions over there, unfortunately fishing has taken a bit of a back seat recently with family and work commitments coming out on top but I’ll hopefully be back in the swing of things soon. Mas for the looking freezing I was actually nice and warm despite having been soaked through to the skin......and my mate, p.b I think that says it all 😉

    Thought of the Day pt.2

    I have nash bp 4 all black - played a fish of 23lb and ounces on a dwarf 6ft 2lb rod with ease. I also have 2 nash bp 6 all black with 2 scope sawn off rods in 3lb that I’ve not had chance to use yet. As for the the bp 4 never been a problem for me smooth, casts well, retrieves line well, looks nice.....does it’s job. So I guess everyone has had different experiences with them but like the shimmy daiwa debate. Also have shimmy cats 5500’s and 14000’s and love them I’d recommend any of the reels I have dependant on people’s budgets

    Not posted for a while but had some luck on Sunday when I took a mate out for a little social/ knowledge passing session. Had 4 fish up to 17.3lb and lost one that felt a lot better than any of the others (always the way) got absolutely drenched in between the car and the lake too which was delightful 😐! my friend had 3 up to 21lb 1oz ( his be pb) so he had a mega day which pleases me no end 😁 always good to help someone get their pb. Top is a couple of my fish and then my mates be pb below

    Wychwood scales

    Hey I have the scales your talking about, I believe they save the last 3 or five weights automatically but not 100% sure, all I can advise is google and have a little read of the instructions. I have no use for the memory feature personally so haven’t really looked into that side of the scales

    River fun

    Nothing better than early doors from work and being paid to fish 👌🏻
