  1. Its perfectly legal for private indeviduals to sell air rifles to each other and send by post, the VCR bill only covered trade sellers, who now have to be RFD. The main problem is varifying the age of the buyer, also worth noting that Royal Mail have an obligation to ship air rifles. Courier companys may take them, but you can have a problem claiming on the insurace. And as a side point ALL air rifles are firearms, sub 12 ft/lbs air rifles and sub 6 ft/lbs air pistols just have different rules applied to them within the various firearms acts.
  2. I travelled down in to his den the other week, took a rather blistering phone call from my wife to get me out. Really nice guy, very knowledgeable and helpful.
  3. Cheers for that, just the info I want. Theres a lure specialist near to me, hopefully I can get over there before I go away.
  4. I am heading over to the IoW for a week from Friday, and fancy have a go at fishing the salty stuff. I have recently started fresh water lure fishing using a shimano travel rod, spec is TEXAXS3033H length 3.00/3.30m casting weight 20-50g Reel wise I have a SHAKESPEARE K2 FD7000 POWERPLAY (sorry for the caps copied from a site), or my fresh water spinning stuff that’s loaded with 20 lb braid. We are staying around St Helens, where there’s a rocky shore, reef around the corner, beech, and harbour. So quiet varied. Time wise it’s likely to be early morning, or evening for a few hours, mo

  6. The Medway around Ensfield Bridge was pretty busy, club bailiff asked for my ID and commented that the stretch was the busiest he had seen it in years Didn't move around that much but did find a really nice wide deep pool that I spent most of the morning on, had a couple of tidlers, but had a big take on my spinning rig (missed it). Dodged the showers for a bit in the afternoon, but chickened out when it really chucked it down. Had a really nice time overall, didn't really mind getting wet either. All the best Jon
  7. Packed my bag, crimped some barbs, just having a coffee before taking the dog out for a walk. Good luck all
  8. Really looking forward to tomorrow, just packed my rucksack as I intend to be pretty mobile and investigate as much of the clubs river section as possible, but if I get lucky will stay put for a while. Quiet early on I hit the town so can pop in the tackle shop, and maybe grab a bite to eat and some refreshment in a pub. Good luck all Jon
  9. Not in to lakes myself so taking the day off work. Was going to occupy my normal stretch of the medway, but have decided to walk the club stretch with my new travel rod. Might visit a pub or two on route.
  10. I visited my local tax offcie to get a problem created by employer sorted, problem solved there and then. Local office also advised my parents how to save money on their tax bill.
  11. I should be off down Ensfield Bridge on Monday, need to give my manager a kick tomorrow so hopefully he will agree the time off. The rumours about fish being moved from the ballast pit started when it was up for sale (or at least rumoured to be for sale), last I heard TAFPS are meant to be buying it.
  12. 10 minutes walk down the road is the sea, has been known to contain the odd fish or 2.
  13. Might or might not be suitable, wife and myself are off to the Isle of Wight in a couple of weeks time, no fising attached but the rather nice caravan park is 10 minutes walk from the sea. IoW also has a good bus service so you can get around. The deal we got is £265 including the ferry crossing (car), deal runs until mid July. http://www.hillgroveandfieldlane.co.uk/ Maybe they could do a deal as you are on foot, sight is at St Helens, near Bembridge.
  14. I caryy either a spyderco pride or my swiss army all the time, both are legal every day carry without reason. When out fishing or shooting its normally a larger fixed blade, sometimes a machete when shooting (hide building). Have just picked up Canadian river knife for general use when in the woods.
  15. Strawberry or orange flavour?? Are there any good books that cover lure fishing using lightweight lures? Fancy a bedtime read.
