About 15 years ago I purchased a headlight from a mail order outfit that has since gone the way of "everything for the carp fisher"   (The company, not the headlight which latter BTW is still working) 

 

I no longer buy from this firm, but they still optimistically send me a large catalogue annually  I look with some amusement on the expensive accouterments such as "buzzer bars"" etc (I still use a forked stick with rod-butt on the ground.....)

 

I thought I would share the latest "essentials", 

 

Boilies are expensive enough, and for those who believe in groudbaiting with boile fragments, making some    with a hammer is an easy but expensive way of increasing ones chances.

 

No longer !     Enter the "Advanced Boilie Crusher"      This machine will "chomp its way through 1 kilo of boilies in under one minute"    (No its not electric, you have to turn a handle at the side like playing a hurdie-gurdie  -  but the handle is detachable for easy transport)  A bargain at £43.99

 

For those not content with one sort of boilie, there is an accompanying plastic "modular bucket system" holding (wait for it) ......up to 30 litres of boilies in three containers    Price £19.99

 

Illustrated as black - dunno about camou or stainless steel...... :whistling:

Vagabond,

 

Don't tell gozzer but everything "carp" has gone beyond the cockamamie limits of sanity even on this side of the penny.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.
