  1. The problem is that a five year old will want lots of bites, which will inevitably reduce with the colder weather. I'm sure you've asked advice from the local fishing shop.

  2. All, Of this I can assure you - HOPEFULLY I am quoting myself. """ “Carp eat between nothing and very little when the water temperature is below 50 degrees F. and what they do eat they digest probably less than 5%”.""" A couple observations and biological facts HEALTHY carp can live seven months without feeding. THIS is the reason carp do not survive the far cold extremes. ON topic (if I remember my own stuff) the warmer the sweeter, the colder the more acidic. IN cold, carp will continue instinctive foraging behaviour and attention to tactics is far more im

  3. Hi Peter, scroll down this Link to the bit about Black Groundbaits for Winter. I haven't given it a go myself though (I tend to give the cold weather a miss these days) but there seems to be plenty buying it. https://www.anglingdirect.co.uk/community/beginners-guide-groundbait-101

  4. Nothing amazing, I'm privileged to live besides one of the Norfolk & Suffolk Broads, luck of birth!

Depending on the tide I'm fishing in one to four feet of water and a size 18 under a self cocking float, no additional shot, one red and one white maggot or a knob of garlic flavoured bread paste on a size 10 fished 4 to 6 inches over depth normally does the business during summer and aut

  6. The reason that I move away from oily or fatty baits in the depths of winter when the water temps have dropped dramatically is that they tend to thicken up and get very stodgy and less attractive with hardly any flavour leaking from them; so I move over more to stronger flavoured baits like strong cheese or spice flavoured baits or bread or maggots or Pinkies or Redworms (which seem to have more life than lobs or dendros In icy cold water) or much leaner Luncheon meat. Plus as you probably know already most fish get a lot less liable to chase a bait downstream and need a lot less food whe

  8. Chris, Steve - I have a draft for another book, following on from A.V. My indoor hobby, now that tackle making and fly-tying are beyond my tremor-racked hands, is postal history, especially rail-related postal history ("The Night Mail crossing the border " etc ) - it does not leave much time for book production - since retiring I have often wondered how I ever found time to go to work !
