  1. A woman in her forties went to a plastic surgeon for a face-lift. The surgeon told her about a new procedure called "The KEY," Where a small key is placed on the back of a woman's head and can be turned to tighten up her skin to produce the effect of a brand new face lift. Of course, the woman wanted "The Key." Over the course of the years, the woman tightened the key and the effects were wonderful --The woman remained young looking and vibrant. After fifteen years, the woman returned to the surgeon with two problems. "All these years, everyt

  3. Will certainly give feedback. I've recently restarted posting to my AN blog, but will give some kind of alert also. Where are you based now? I've also had health issues and like you, combined with Covid it's been pretty much a fishless year. So it's great to plan for better days! Best of luck on the Wye. I've been there a couple of times near Ross barbel fishing, and on one occasion did really well. On the other I don't think there was enough flow in the river.

  4. It was a bit cloudy and slightly cooler today so my son and I decided to have a few hours this evening after a couple of Carp on my local estate lake before the weather gets any hotter; as we’re due a scorcher of a weekend.

No tackle can be taken into the house, and originally that applied to fishing clothes too! But I expect it will be OK.

  6. Two mates and I spent a week on the Stour at Throop Mill at the start of the season a couple of years ago and we caught plenty of Roach and Dace and perch plus some very nice Chub; but no Barbel unfortunately. Our largest Chub were just over 5lb and were caught at around dusk on large pieces of bread flake or bread crust fished on the bottom using a half ounce lead and a size 6 hook. During the day we trotted for the Roach using our centrepins and occasionally our fixed spool reels using casters, hemp or maggots for bait; and then changed over to our Avon rods with fixed spool reels

  7. They have fecking big long, super long ropes in Whitby, that way they can stay tied up and always find their way home, I understand that the skippers used to drop breadcrumbs on their way out of port on the advice of Hans and Gretle but since Brexit seagulls have been unable to gain employment in hospitality venues and have had to resort to scavenging.

  9. OK for you to joke about it Ant but I invested heavily in Gozzer’s fan cleaning franchise, he told me it was the new Bitcoin.
