  1. I'd love a Korum ruckbag but they is expensive
  2. Thanx 4 the advice ERmmm, I picked up one of the small tackle bags the other week, but what im really looking for is a ruckbag and i thought whilst i was buying that i would replace my rod bag
  3. Looking to buy a luggage set, which includes; Holdall, rod bag and rucksack. Preferably cheap. Anyone know any good retailers? Thanx in advance, Gone Fishin'
  4. Caught a nice common carp off the top again, using dog biscuits. This time I had some scales and the fish weighed in at 15Ibs.

  6. could've sworn this was a leather. Anyone else?

  11. Fair point Brian, to be honest I would have retrieved the line sooner than my mate did.
  12. Hi, Just thought i'd share my worst experience fishing ever. Went for a chuck last nite. There was a duck on the water with 8 ducklings. My mate was float fishing and whilst his float was out, the duckings came noseying. When one of the ducklings was about 50 cms from the float my mate lifted his rod and, you guessed it, he hooked the duckling, this paniced the duckling, which in turn sent the mother duck into a frenzy. The mother duck in attempting to help her baby then got caught in the line. At this point I told my friend to cut the line, which he did. The mother then proceeded to
  13. hi, i've recently acquired a Shimano Alivio Medium Feeder Rod. Am I safe to target small/medium sized carp with this rod? Cheers in advance GF
  14. Hi peeps, Quick question. I have two Shimano rods, one float rod ax and one medium feeder bx rod. What do the AX and BX signify if anything? Cheers in advance, GF
