    This is a test as I’ve suddenly started to get the same problem with displaying a picture as tigger. [url=https://postimg.cc/nssQ9Py7][img]https://i.postimg.cc/xd5Ghrgs/7-BC0-B579-8335-49-E1-B743-3-B92-A4-C5-A1-F6.jpg[/img][/url] Keith
  5. I don’t know why your photos aren’t being displayed Ian although after I tried copying and pasting one of your picture links I get the warning: [b] ‘Pasted as Rich Text, post as plain text instead’[/b] Perhaps this may be a clue as to why your pics may not be working? Heres one of your photo links just copied and pasted as is: [url=https://postimg.cc/w1P3Th58][img]https://i.postimg.cc/vm8nhhcB/IMG-0798.jpg[/img][/url] I don’t know how to post it as plain text as prompted. NB: for some reason my pics from postimage have also started to misbehave too and I’m now get
  6. Have just tried to add a couple of pics - without success. I don't use third parties, and could not find a way to add files direct. Any comments or advice ?
  7. Thats amazing a dead man can make a website! But nothing compared to linda mcartney who has cooked more food after death than when alive!

  9. Yesterday
  10. Good to see you back posting and fishing Dave, and catching of course. You know only too well my thoughts on the 'stuffed with carp' waters, but seeing as it's you, I'll let you off. I saw a post on another forum that reminded me of you. It's from 2018, you might have seen it, but it's here just in case you haven't, and it might be of interest to others. http://www.dickwalker.co.uk/ I hope the link works, if not it's about the 100th anniversary of Dick Walker. There are interviews and articles about him and his exploits over the years. It brought back many memories from my yout
  11. The river was too high for trotting today so I had to have several hours on a club pool. The temp's have suddenly dropped right off and a horrible cold north north westerley made it feel much colder. I think the temp was 15 degrees when I got there at about 2.30pm and it was 12 degrees when I left at 6.30pm. I freelined meat and bread whilst targetting carp and managed quite a few which really fought to avoid being landed. I had one small fish which may or may not be a true crucian. I'll try and post a couple of pic's but for some reason they've stopped showing? [url=h
  12. After losing a post about four-fifths done I produce a version off-line, then copy and paste it in. Saves an awful lot of frustration. Now to see about putting piccys in,
  13. You dont have to wind down just wise up lol If you want easy access try the CC&C site at east horsley,try and book a pitch by the pond ,the fishing isnt difficult but best of all no maggots (or rather when we camped full time in 2001) but i think probably still the rule we cant have live animals providing sport today shock horror! If you cant walk get a frickin buggy you old scrote ,theres fish waiting you haven't caught all the British ones yet The camping and caravan mob have lots of fishing and no excuses today you can google and see what the terrain is before you go ,if
  14. Winding down - angling as one gets older and frailer. Having caught shark, marlin, and sturgeon over 300 lb, and several hundred species from places as diverse as the Amazon Basin, the Australian outback, the Southern Ocean, the Caribbean coral flats and the streams of the American Divide. It is with some disbelief that I find age, muscle weakness and increasingly severe angina drastically limiting where I can fish. I have always loved catching wild fish in wild places, which has had me fishing in all seven oceans, and six of the seven continents. (went to the seventh – Antarcti
  15. Last week
  16. Hey John, nice report bud, as was Keiths :). You did well getting that fresh water crock on your set up! Great to see people post their catch reports again :).
  17. I had an hours trotting on Tuesday just gone. I only went late in the afternoon and was doing more of a recy as it's about 6yrs since i've been to this beat. Anyhow, I bumped into someone I know and spent half of my time chatting to him. Eventually when I did do a bit of trotting I had a "dice", a seatrout of about a pound and a half, a few smaller chub, one chub of about 5lb and a nice roach of about 12 ounces or more. I'll try and get back and fish a spot I fancy asap.
  18. I nearly alway drag or skip the bottom Martin. As you say they often want a static bait, I just prefer float fishing to sitting about. If I uave to leger i'd rather touch leger and feel the fish take the bait, then strike the hook home.
  19. Operation Stack was put in place On M20 around midday today due to industrial action in Calais, that is the second time this week.
  20. All, So if I told you there are hand made bench reels being made in FRANCE w/ "made in France" and are marked (I forget) either ABU MITCHELL OR GARCIA MITCHELL - do you think I'm crazy as a bedbug? I only got a cursory look at the box and open faced reel. I was interested in a date, Which I didn't find. The owner had a heavy accent which I could not identify and was only modestly friendly Phone
  21. Update this seems to indicate why the site you mention is wonky https://m.facebook.com/MitchellReelMuseum/?locale2=nl_NL
  22. Thanks to Martin56 I'm now the proud owner of threeMitchell 300s, threeMitchell 440s match, spare spools and an unidentified Centrepin. I spent all morning stripping, cleaning, re oiling, and generally servicing. One tiny spring to order and they're all just about as good as new. The Chinese...
  23. Doubt it Phone - Mitchell's have now gone Chinese!!
  24. Hi Bloxbit, welcome to the forum. Do you still live near the Test? looking forward to your posts. Keith
  25. Poor poor cod still crying ,wipe your eyes remember you said we wouldnt get a deal so those lorries wont exist Just a little line of lorries just like it already happens when your french bits of **** close the border when they get huffy
  26. Lost in space sphugh that’s brexit not one single piece of good news with brexit not one single thing to say we are better off with brexit that’s the brexshit reality brexit just keeps bringing doom and gloom and we have only started. And the Brexiteers should we will have very own gps space program AND !!!!!!!!! another piece of brexitshit fantasy with this sleepwalking Brexiteer government and there is much much more of this brexshit to come . Mind if you like giant lorry parks then brexit is a fabulous success absolutely brilliant this Brexshit F-Troop of a government.
  27. been smacked in the face by the kayak after I got binned in the surf when I first started and had a black eye from it (though not like that one) didn't realise until one of the barmaids pointed it out a few hours later
  28. I started fishing very young, and was lucky enough to have access to a private trout lake and a stretch of the Test. Only when I sampled coarse fishing did I get the bug. For various reasons I stopped fishing in about 1999 and barely a week went by without me missing it. Thanks to a new friend as keen to get into it as I was to return, I’m now pretty much set to return to the bank, a new man. I hope to learn what has changed and share what little knowledge I held on to.
