Thought of the Day pt.2

Recommended Posts

I personally like my cork handled rods to take on a natural patina , they darken over time which I like.  If you are looking to seal & protect them though,  have a look at clear osmo oil.  Not the cheapest of products mind but very good & will keep a natural look for the cork .

It's geared around sealing & protecting natural products  , while keeping that natural look,  so even though I have never used it on a rod it will be perfect for the job . I have used it on cork though & It looked spot on just brought out the natural colour.  Also won't tarnish your hands with any unwanted varnish smells which could end up on your bait .

Happy that  you're pleased with the job .

Hopefully out of the 4 weeks you were without the rod the weather was stopping you getting out anyway for some of the time  ? .

Perfectly carpy weather and I’m sat on the sofa in my pyjamas drinking a cup of tea. Where has my enthusiasm gone just lately?! Must get out there and make the most of this mild wet weather. Anyone else struggling for motivation so far this year? Only done 2 trips in 2019 and it’s already February.

Not been out since August last year when we had a week in France... didn't think for one minute the  next time I fish will be back there end of March.  

Can't wait 🎣 

if you can get out then make the most of it,  you never know when life throws those hurdles in the way or work goes mad  & fishing is put on the back burner .

Probably would of been better for me tbh as they just bounce off .... wing mirrors they tend to  take with them at that speed  not the first time I've lost one off a vehicle due to pheasants . 😝

I know what you mean about the call of fishing in France, Phil. It's addictive. I did Rushes Lake twice last year and this June Alan and I are on Windmill Lakes, just up the road from Rushes. Taking my nephew with us . He'll be celebrating his 40th birthday while we're there.

You'll know all about self-employment being a potential obstacle to fishing in general. I certainly do. It's all about priorities whereas a booked trip to France is a specific and can be worked into the diary.

Standard winter mindset innit mate. It's hard work at times.

If there is one weekend we need to be fishing this winter, this next one is it. This big south westerly that's just popped up is with us until Sun/Mon and it's bringing with it double figure temps on Fri/Sat. The north east corner of most lakes will already be a degree or two warmer than the rest of the water as it's been off the back of the cold north easterlys. Now you'll have this new wind turning that corner over big time.

There'll be a few carp caught across the country this weekend I'm sure. Typical I can't be on the bank.
