  1. My neighbour has a small wooden (it may be fiberglass) dinghy, big enough for two people with oars that I could borrow. I've always wanted to fish from a boat on a lake or river but I dont know what may be required such as licensing, etc. I realise that if I want to fish on a lake I need the lake owners permission but I am unsure whats required if fishing on a river, specifically The River Nene outside of Peterborough. Do I need a license, permission, etc? Do I have to use a slipway or just a convenient location (with landowners permission) to launch from? I will put this on the coar

  3. If you need some wonderfully limp, knotable and thin (but strong) wire trace then try this online store called AGM Products. I bought the Surfstrand Micro Supreme 7x7 and its really good stuff. The owner of the website is really helpful as well as I was not sure whether to use a knot or crimps. Instead of trying to sell me crimps and a crimping tool he recommended the half blood knot which works a treat. He even refunded part of my postage because it didnt cost as much as it said on the website!
  4. My brother in-law would dearly love to catch a river barbel (still water barbel is just WRONG!). He lives in Braintree, Essex and not being familiar with local rivers and such I dont know what to recommend. Any ideas?
  5. Thanks guys! I could have sworn I checked their special buys earlier this week but maybe they hadnt updated it. I'm gonne buy two of 'em!! Cheers.
  6. I gave my mother my Aldi rod bag/holdall and I really miss it! Does anyone know when they'll be doing their fishing tackle Sunday thing again? If not...does anyone have an Aldi rod bag I can buy?
  7. Based on your comments (thank you for your honest feedback) I have reduced the price to £5.99. This does cut down on the profit but I may as well sell what I have already! I think I'll try a mix and match idea where people can choose what they put on it. Cheers.
  8. Fishermans cottage in Kent up for sale for £247,000. Described as "Exceptional" and "Not to be missed!". But there is one thing they didnt mention... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/kent/8282368.stm {link fixed}
  9. I really did consider that! Putting a bait needle and boilie drill on this was a consideration but I discarded that idea when I realised that carpies never move from one spot for days at a time so they have no opportunity to lose their gear! Now how do I paint it camo...
  10. Sorry, I should also mention that I added a feature on my website on making your own DIY line stripper. Click the "Ideas" tab on the website link above. I'll also post it on Anglers Net as well.
  11. If you pop over to THIS WEBSITE you can get a full explanation of my own product I am trying to sell. Its called The FishQuick (because it makes your fishing quick and easy) and its an item I have been using personally for over three years now. I am selling it on the website and on eBay but had no punters yet. Elton has allowed me to have a go at flogging it on here but I am also looking for any tips, advice, recommendations or what you think about The FishQuick. Good idea, bad idea, etc. If anyone from this forum would like to trial this product for me and write a review
  12. For my float fishing I swapped over to Berkley Vanish Transition Flourocarbon as its sinks better than mono lines. One thing that really wound me up was trying to get the bloody mono line to sink, even with constant washing up liquid added it would last a few casts and then start floating again. Floroucarbon is practically invisible under water, its limper and less prone to coiling up and it sinks. Obviously its no good for trotting but I have used a 10lb floroucarbon line for surface baits quite successfully. I just add some vaseline to the line. I've been buying it from THIS SELLER
  13. I decided to go fishing Saturday and as I set up on the bank it was obvious that the weather was going to make ledgering or float fishing difficult. I could already see carp on the surface aimlessly cruising around like zombies! After an hours ledgering I decided to make up a 10 foot spinning rod which was powerful but still soft and flexible, 10lb line (there's a fair few snags here) and a size 8 hook on the end. I stuffed my pockets with dog biscuits, floating hookable pellets, hooks, vaseline (to make the line float), disgorger, forceps, etc. Grabbed my landing net and went for a walk.
  14. Perhaps hook it as you would some luncheon meat and then put it in a small PVA stocking and cast it out? I'm not sure if the banana would melt the PVA though. To be frank it seems like an awful lot of hassle to go through! I guess you could also pole fish with it.
  15. That fishing rod bag is the best I have ever had! For the price it is exceptional and holds all my rods, an 8m pole, landing net pole, bank sticks, umbrella and 4 reels + spare spools. It has room to carry 3 made up rods in seperate compartments. Seriously good!
