  1. ๐Ÿ‘†๐ŸปWell said Greekskii
  2. Get yourself a copy of Julian cundiffs book carp - short session success it's well worth a read (for anyone ) and at about ยฃ7/ยฃ8 on the angling publications website with free delivery it a good price too
  3. Total fishing tackle mate. They even tried to source one from Nash for me but couldn't get it until mid August . All sorted now though so all good
  4. Bought a Nash mozi sent the wrong one so they refunded me as didn't have the correct one in stock .....they also sent me a ridgemonkey xlnin black with utensils and a ridge monkey case for it as an apology ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ now that is good customer service! i have also bought the correct mozzi throw now as well
  5. Welcome to the forum Lee.....nice looking fish
  6. Broke my barrow some more Monday on the walk back to the car.....impulse bought a second hand traker x trail barrow for ยฃ50 bargain ๐Ÿ˜ Feels much more comfortable than my now broken non brand pile of scrap metal ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  7. Bc have you seen the pictures on the Facebook group? Some stunning fish! Im not in Facebook but came accross it on google when I was looking it all. And yes the sightings where yesterday evening. Really tempted to go and take a look
  8. Anyone had any luck on the chelmer and black water canal, popped down yesterday evening with the little one and got talking to some boat people and have been pointed towards a couple of sightings but any other info pointers would be appreciated
  9. Yonny....amazing tale as always and congratulations! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Although it hooked me that much my blooming dinner has gone cold ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ nige lovely looking fish as always! Nicely done
  10. used to be some lakes the other side of the Humber in Barton.....not sure if they are still fishable or what they hold as I'm talking twenty years ago when I first wet a line think they where known as "the clay pits"
  11. I'm in agreement with Phil. I always compare things like this to the cost of a pint/ bottle of wine. the common one is moaning about the cost of fuel then buying the ยฃ1.50 500ml bottle of coke etc without a second thought.......put the coke in the car and see how far it gets you. things are worth what people will pay for them and if people will willingly pay ยฃ12 a kg they will keep charging it simple as that
  12. No mate that's the front lake.....I did six months on the back lake and struggled big time (one big blank) moved onto the front lake because it was a better option for the winter, I'll flit between the two now dependant on weather and where I see fish. Will also be doing nights on two other club lakes just to keep options open
  13. As dave said mate.....fill ya boots! Nothing wrong with organising a social ๐Ÿ˜‰
  14. So......I have had my first fish out of the back lake.....a roach of a few oz's BUT I have found a secret hiding spot for some of the big ones ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ they come out of the snags for floaters after they have been in the water for 5 mins or so....I had one take on the floater gear unfortunately something went wrong and I lost it ๐Ÿ˜” But my next visit I will only be taking floater gear and I have no doubts I will be either a) adding to may catch reports (if I get up there for a few hours tomorrow) b) starting/adding to the June catch reports thread over the next week or so the excitement for the back lake has returned ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
  15. That's not to bad though, still attached and leaking off attraction ๐Ÿ˜ Good for at least another hour ๐Ÿ˜‰
