Was a great time to be a young adult, all those lost weekends loved it 

You know that! Sometimes just one hell of a long weekend! 

 

The criminal justice Bill, put an end to some of the best house parties and pop up raves in those days. The clubbing scene was OK, but turned a bit clicky by the end of the 90's. Too much Charlie, started all the naughtiness. Ebineezer good😲

How many acres is that reservoir , Machali ? .

I'm guessing there's a  more water beyond the bridge ? .

It's so annoying I've lost 2 now, I think the spod braid that came with the spod reel has to go and will be replaced with some mellow yellow braid, I also think the design of the spomb means the braid gets caught up in the tail upon retrieve then when you close it its not always easy to spot with normal colour braid, I think that's what causes it tbh. 

They must be making a killing if a lot of people lose them :)

Took me a while to reply to this Elmo but was looking for old video.

Why not make your own version of a spomb. I dug out some old footage of my “bottle spod” and have just posted it on you tube. It was what I used before the spomb was available. It looks pants and a tackle tart’s nightmare but it DOES WORK. I could get bait out to around 70 yards using a beachcaster. I still use it today for prebaiting when I want to get a lot of bait out in a short time.

I love it that's awesome I may get creative and try and make one 

I actually used an old spod the other day and it was a pleasure to cast compared to a heavy large Spomb

Is really big, but not a reservoir. Is the Tagus river, photo taken near Vila Velha de Ródão :)

Ahah , my stepson says he thinks this is the river that goes through Lisbon and has the same Golden Gate Bridge as San Fransisco  ? .

You stepson is right! The river starts in Spain (Albarracín Moutain), cruises Portugal until find the Ocean near Lisbon.

That bridge is the 25th April Bridge

("From 1966–1974, the bridge was named Salazar Bridge (Ponte Salazar) in honor of Portuguese Prime Minister António de Oliveira Salazar. After the Carnation Revolution which overthrew the remnants of Salazar's dictatorship, the bridge was renamed for April 25, the date of the revolution." from wikipedia)
