  1. just use some old line or wool etc to back the spools out .

    A good bailiff doesn't just ban IMO , sometimes a little word is all that is needed , diplomacy .

    Correct although you need good bailiffs to keep any trouble makers around you under control

    Wow calm down mate , is there really any need for that ??? None of what I have said is argumentative please don't derail the thread .

    I agree to a point , but I do wonder how 'diplomatic ' an 18 year old can be when they may have to offer advice and wonder how their advice on the rules will be viewed by some members . Maybe the club has been very lucky and just so happen to have found two bailiffs that have just turned 18 that meet their criteria time will tell I suppose.

    Just to update this is a multi water club not a day ticket water , so I wouldn't expect daily visits as it voluntary . This along with a few other things are making me question next years choice of club .

    What in others opinions makes a good bailiff . I'm asking this as my club has just appointed two new bailiffs , now I don't know these people so maybe jumping the gun and possible I my self should be more open minded. The two new bailiffs one young lady and one young lad have both just turned 18 . Any way what in your opinion make a good bailiff
  8. If your fishing smallish waters and casting 50-60 meters then even if strip 150 meters off each spool , that will still allow you to get two years out of a new 1000 meter spool.

    Pre bait costs

    Fish are cold blooded so will slow down as the temperature drops , yes river fish may be more active then lake fish but they will not be as active in the colder weather . This could of course work to your advantage as they may be holding in a smaller area of the river rather than roaming around as much . Good luck in what you decide but have a think about fish behavior in various water temperatures .

    Pre bait costs

    I think some of it will depend on the river , the old winter leagues on rivers would be very very hard going with lots of blanks . I know they weren't fishing for carp but I would still be wary of putting to much feed in . Saying that I have caught Tench from a river with snow on the ground .

    Pre bait costs

    As Yonny says pellets , plus no prep needed . On a personal point of view I'm not sure I would start a prebaiting campaign on the lead up to colder weather coming when the fish will slow right down in both movement and feeding.

    bait boat

    You'll have to change your name , can't be 'old school' and own a bait boat .
  13. If fox have a list of dealers on their website then start at the top and work your way down ringing or emailing them , you may find one of the smaller lesser know dealers may still have one in stock.
  14. As above , white bread crumb to bind and brown to help break down , make sure the mix is nice and fluffy , also take your time mixing to make sure the whole bowl is evenly mixed .Have a look on the internet for some of the old match guys , tom pickering , bob nudd , dickie carr they used to keep things simple but effective.
  15. Love apurple pop up or snowman
