Welcome to the nut house Joe :)

 

My pb is 21lb so don't think we worry to much about weights mate it's more the journey as long as it's not to muddy then i stay at home !

welcome Joe, just remember PB's are there for you to better and you can only better your own.

climbing that ladder is a personal journey that we all take, some are slower than others.

10lb ghostie is a good fish and there are plenty on here who cant claim that one bud, my best ghost came in at 18lb 2oz and snapped me off four times in one season, i had been chasing it for two and a half years before i got it in the net so they are worth every moment spent on them.

keep on keeping on and enjoy the ride :wink:

Hello mate, welcome...

 

Who cares what your PB is? It means nothing really. A 10lb fish from the north east is just as meritorious as a southern 20 in my opinion. A fish to be proud of fella.

 

I'm originally from Teeside too. Redcar...

Welcome mate,

Hope you enjoy the site i haven't been a member long but i have had loads on good comments and lot of nice people on here.

I wouldn't worry about your PB mine was 9lb for 15 Years until i had my 23 as long as your enjoying it.

Plus at the end of the day its your PB so its your personal best not any one elses.

10lb is a good fish :D

And right now a 10lb carp would do me lovely.

 

I sometimes think too many anglers go for too big a fish too quickly, without learning about what they are fishing for.

As above, ruddy goldfish.

 

to be honest old buddy Ghosties are just a variation of the Koi strain and they themselves are just like leneys, leathers, galician and royals a variation of the original prehistoric strain.

oh and just a little enlightenment for those of you that thing that dave lane gave his name to the leney strain, they were actually bred by a fish farmer called Donald Leney in the 1920s so, sorry mr lane :lol:
