Managed to get a brand new copy of 'The Forgotten Chapters' by Gaz Fareham off ebay on a buy-it-now for a tenner! Normally goes for 30-50 quid so well happy with that.

I already have bids in on 2 other copies that are in pretty poor nick so now hoping I get outbid.

Also picked up Lee Jackson's 'Just for the Record' the other day which has got me proper hooked.  I'm hoping that my bid is against you on the next one up ? Only two bids at the moment ....👊

There you go mate...……… Bit gutted about the Cyprinus magnetic ones that I ordered a while back, they powder coated the inserts but left a rough textured finish which got jammed and I messed one up trying to free it (had to put it in a vice). I should've sent them back really, but tried to use them...…….. If you hold on a few days, I'll let you know what these are like, first impressions...… You can buy quick connectors pretty cheap and leave them attached to the brolly, if you are used to your magnet sticks... I'm not totally convinced with the magnet sticks, as you can only use them on the brolly really and not as long bank sticks, and one of my magnets is really weak, which was a pain when trying to adjust the height, as it jumps out of the slot...…. Perhaps a bad batch?...…….. My advice would be to buy the 3ft to 6ft extenders, just in case you need to send them back, anything over 1metre in length and the postage gets a bit steep, plus, at that length gives you the option to lower the brolly if needed...….. How do I know this????? Got some 48" sticks getting dusty in the shed lol..🙂

Second hand Shimmy surf/spod reel loaded with new braid..... Ultegra 3500 XSD Competition.. Had a good look and play with it. Spool rim is mint, reel feels tight and smooth...…. Just a couple of small marks on the bale lever, nothing to affect the reel though...…. 50 quid, half price of a new one, so probably about right price with the braid included...… The pic is not the actual reel, it's of a new one..

Them butt grips grip? I used some loser ones for one session. Never again. I was having to do my best Gordon banks moves to stop my rods flying in lol

I use those Solar butt stops myself.

My Century NG's had ball stops on the butt ( I didn't actually need butt rests at all with them). I now have very technologically advanced cable ties on my RH The Ones on the butts to stop flying rods.😉😅

Nice touch lol...……...

I was using some NGT gripper butt thingies and I'm pretty sure they helped lift the varnish on my old NG's, abbreviated butt section...…. So I ordered some of these for a quid...…… Use them as rod bands and also as make shift butt clamps, if needed...…..

My £25 including P&P rods arrived this morning! I only won them Sunday evening so really impressed with the service. The rods seems great, little heavier than my current rod but at the price I won't moan. Annoyingly I would of got the rod even cheaper had the company not used a Fed-Ex 24 hour service at the cost of £15, I actually won the rods for £10 but still a bargain.

Nice bit of inginuity though fellas. I was on a packed lake a few week back and a fella was floating some crust. He left his rod, the inevitable happened. Is it bad that I laughed 😂. Twice I've seen it this season, it still makes me chuckle. I did help the first old boy retrieve his via a boat. The recent fella wasn't so lucky. Just hope the fish got off ok

There's a few cats in the water I've been fishing, and heard a few stories like you mentioned...…… When the weed was up, you had to fish locked up and rods clamped, that's why I tried the NGT butt grips, which were ok, but the old varnish on my rods couldn't take how tight they gripped..... So I gave the pipe cleaners a go and they work alright, just cut them to best length and add a cm of shrink tube to the ends to cover the wire...…. 

Can just imagine that old boy panicking lol...….🙂
