  1. Thanks all. I've had a few sessions since my return and they've all gone well; a double figure common off the top with home made bait and some fun taking tench on the float of an evening. More serious feeder/legering might be on the cards this weekend, now I know I haven't completely forgotten what I'm doing!

  2. Yes Martin, it has to have pellet waggler rod printed on it or it isn't fit to use as a pellet waggler . But then again, you migh be ok if it says carp waggler on it

  3. I found a great page on the Heaven's Above website last night, that lists all of the bright man-made satellites (including the ISS) when they are visible. You'll need to put in your own location to get the most accurate results, but as I'm in the middle of the country, the information shown shouldn't be more than a minute or two off. https://www.heavens-above.com/AllSats.aspx?lat=51.72277&lng=-1.25244&loc=South+Oxford&alt=0&tz=GMT

  4. We trained one of our cctv cameras to a fairly dark part of the sky (north of us is pointless as were in surrey) the camera uses sony "starvis" opticals and its very good at seeing stars as the name says ,on watching it back its surprising how many "ufo's" you see . Satellites tend to just follow a straight path and keep the same brightness and ofcourse meteorites flare up and dim but theres many between these out and about when your kipping . I bought one of these motorised telescopes last year from amazon warehouse and a 5mp camera to poke in its eye but i must get round to actually setting it up ! I got as far as putting 3 small bits of paving in the lawn to stand it on so it kept its programming (knowing its in the same place when brought back out) but thats it the laptop has all the software to guide it and the camera but i lack the motivation to go further by 8pm i'm ready for bed ! The celestion pc software even without a scope is brilliant and theres some good ones for your phone or tablet that keep aligned as you move.The best one was for my old playbook the blackberrys gps and movement sensors were spot on but it lives in its box in the loft what was top spec is now ancient and slow

  6. That's Great News Ant, would the Inhaler happen to be Trelegy Elipta?? It was good for me & was on that for a long time. However, my GP/Nurse has now put me on a new one called "Trimbo" - not because I'm any worse, but because you get to use it Twice a day & patients are finding the Trimbo gives them more relief purely because it's Twice a day. They'll give you a Spacer - a inhaling tube which the Trimbo fits on one end.

  8. So my first river session is over and wow what a place the wye is. Unfortunately the conditions probably couldn’t have been worse for fishing with 30 degree plus days, super high water temperatures and super low water levels meaning there was very little margins and most of the swims were like fishing off the beach. I was concerned to learn that these conditions are really dangerous for the fish, especially the barbel and was surprised fishing wasn’t stopped were I was although I believe most other stretches it was. I certainly stopped targeting the barbel once a local explained what low oxygen levels would mean for the fish. I caught plenty of chub to just over four and a half pound, and once I started fishing into darkness found the barbel with fish upto around seven and a half pound pulling my arm off. I was also hoping to try for a Pike but was quickly advised at the local tackle shop it’s not safe for the fish to target them during the summer months. All in all a great experience and a steep learning curve. I would like to perhaps see some guidance about safe fishing conditions with your day tickets or club license as people who come from a sea or I guess and Stillwater background would be completely ignorant of this and could unwillingly harm these magnificent fish.

  9. Apparently, the Home Defence title of these Guns has no reference as to the Legality of using them for said purpose!! It's up to the Laws of the country. In the UK, it's illegal to use these weapons for home defence (But it maybe OK to hit an intruder with say a Cricket or Baseball Bat??) Personally, at near on 65, I'd take a chance with the Jury as these Guns are after all NON LETHAL, And an Intruder gets all he deserves!!

  11. Hi Ant, I watch all the AAR stuff even though I'm perfectly happy with just my 40 odd year old .22 Webley Vulcan air rifle. It still packs a hefty punch.

  12. Check the rules! You really don't want to be turning up with braid, only to find that braid is banned.
