  1. Don't know if you remember a guy coming on here some years ago, complaining that he had lost 1000s of cats from his 'fishery' in East Yorkshire during heavy flooding. He was asking for donations to compensate his loss. I remember saying he should be fined not compensated for polluting the surrounding waters. His fishery was surrounded by drains which fed into the River Hull, which in turn fed the Humber, and it's only a short trip up to the Trent and Yorkshire Ouse systems. Catfish have been caught, from parts of the Yorks Ouse for the last 6 or 7 years, and reports of them being caught from t

  3. Not my words but written by a friend. The litany of abuse and inhumanity I have seen aimed at a man who devoted his life to public service of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth has irked me beyond belief. He's a racist, you say? At 18-months old, as a young Greek baby of Danish parentage, he was removed from his home and as a refugee was taken to Paris where he was brought up by two alcoholic parents. His mother was sectioned when he was five years old, whilst his father left him to pursue his own love life.

  4. Some stupid idiot(s) have illegally put catfish into a couple of waters near where I live. We’ve now got them in our stream fed estate lake to over 40lb and a Catfish of 55lb was caught from one of my other clubs lakes too, and regulars say that there are some even bigger ones in that lake. They certainly were not put in by the clubs themselves. Stupid is being polite when describing these plebs. Keith

  5. ALL, Of course, I’m right I’m Phone and I’m back. Although there should have never been a doubt. There have been a few of the boring snags; for your perusal. · How does such a event begin ? Simple, · “ Dr. Vamanan has reviewed your medical records and performed a thorough physical exam. · You endorse recovering well after surgery. · Your CT showed a lymph node that might have increased in size right beside your aorta. We're going to send these results to your Primary Care Physician and arrange a referral with HemOnc.

  6. Beats me why people who catch these invasive species release them! These same idiots complaine about our indiginoius predators because they eat fish, calling for culls of them, and yet promote the introduction of wels catfish which are capable of decimating our waterways.

  7. So by continued scaremongering about the AstraZeneca jab whilst at the same time demanding the U.K. gives up its own supply, sending armed officers into ‘secure’ supplies and blocking the supply of the AstraZeneca to other Countries and then threatening to seize the entire supply of jabs in a U.K. funded and purchased laboratory that happens to be in Holland, sitting on the jabs that have been supplied until they go out of date and then saying they are not going to use them anyway! Pfizer then announce that due to ‘market conditions’ they are increasing the price of their jab by 60%.

  8. I don't really know why i'm posting this, but sitting here right now it seems the right thing to do. I'm not wanting sympathy or pity, what I do need is to put something down in words, and hopefully some positive energy flowing my way. I've had a cough for around 5 weeks, and the odd day when i've had a sharp stabbing pain around my chest and sides around my ribcage and a shortness of breath. My girlfriend being the wonderful and loving type had googled and read up on the more detailed symptoms I was showing. She thought it may have been a bout of pneumonia and suggested I talk to my doc

  10. Perhaps Its the 70's and 80's selfish moving fish again (why theres so many carp ) ,we found one in my old pond and dispatched it ,no-way could it have swum there and i doubt it crept in with a stocking so obviously it was put in deliberately ,saying that its pretty common people throwing fish in waters because they outgrow their tanks or just get bored keeping them as we saw with several turtles appearing when the ninja turtles fad ended.Unfortunately clubs are also to blame stocking fish without realising the consequences as we see with the true crucians becoming so rare

  13. Tigger sums it up "the water in front of you" Most important is the water clarity - Fish have eyes to see with, and a sense of smell to find food with when they can't see - for example on a moonless night or in intensely clouded water (eg carp puddles) Obviously in partially clouded water they may well use both senses. A secondary consequence of cloudy water is the colour intensity of the roach themselves - the cloudier the water, the more anaemic* the roach - and incidentally the more likely they are to be hybrids with rudd or bream rather than true roach. So the future holds
