  4. In February 2013 I went to my usual water for a day's piking, We got there about 8.45am and I set my stuff up, got my first rod out(ledgered deadbait) about 9am. At the time I was using a 'beach buddy' as a shelter. Sat in my shelter setting my 2nd rod up I heard a 'clunk'. Sticking my head out of the shelter I noticed my bite indicator had dropped and line was disappearing off the spool. Dropped the rod I was setting up and struck. 5 minutes later(and some VERY wobbly knees)landed a superb 17lb pike. Dealt with it and finished setting up both rods. Had another 3 pike that day(8lb, 9lb and 11lb)but not until mid afternoon. Had all 3 in a crazy half hour, I think between 2pm and 2.30pm. Now the PACGB have 'stolen' the water and I cannot fish it anymore unless I join them.
  5. To the totally ignorant when it comes to the matter of reels for freshwater angling(pole angler)what is a reel like this really(bad pun, sorry) worth?
  6. I know this reply might sound a bit cheesy, but, have you thought about ringing Keith Arthur on Talk Sport Saturday and Sunday between 6 and 7am. He knows the Thames like the back of his hand. Sure he would give some good advice
  7. Having had and used both of these reels(both are superb)I also prefer the Daiwa. If you could get one a SHV or SHA daiwa.
  8. I only have a £15 phone on PAYG. I don't see the point of phones that run your life for you on stupid contracts that cost a fortune, and I certainly don't need a internet access on a phone. I'll nip to Asda/Tesco tomorrow and see what they've got. Had a try with it earlier, it wont switch on at all so its now in the bin
  9. Fished the Lancaster Canal on Saturday 10/8. When we got there, there was a chap already fishing. "Caught anything?" I ask? "No" comes the reply, I set myself up with my pole, first 2 mins a nice roach, next put out nice skimmer, next thing I knew I heard a voice saying "Have a good day lad's" the guy had packed up and off he went. Anyway, caught steadily throughout the day and enjoyed the session. Only downside, I knocked my phone onto the lily pads by my feet and although it didn't sink it got horribly wet and stopped working. Ah well, never mind.
  10. It would depend on what type of fishing you are doing. Are you just fishing for small silvers or are you going after the carp. I have used Browning Black Magic poles and Shimano Technium 13mtr(my personal favourite £299). Both superb poles but I've no doubt other people will tell you Maver, Tri Cast, etc etc there is such a massive selection in this price range Technium for me
  11. There is a possibility that the warning system that should have slowed it down failed. Best waiting for the full enquiry results before speculating the cause
  12. Personally I don't see a problem with £1 to post a letter. How much would it cost you to deliver it personally? Especially if, lets say you are in London and the letter is going to Glasgow. Maybe 50p for 'local' post
  13. Wrightington Fisheries, Mossy Lea Road Wrightington. £6 pppd £4 concessions. 01257 451352. WN69SA.www.wrightingtonfisheries.blogspot.co.uk Just off M6, very easy to get to. Good write up about it in June Pole Fishing Magazine. Otherwise, Leeds Liverpool canal at Burscough/Ormskirk/Tarleton There is/was(not sure if it's still there) a commercial at Longton nr Preston. Just off the roundabout where 'Little Chef' used to be Hope this helps
  14. Best advice I could give you is contact all the local tackle shops in Margate, Southend, Ramsgate. Usually best advice going.
