  1. There is so much pollution going on round here atm it's shocking. Even morw shocking is the EA just ignore it all despite many videos of it as it's happening, including lots of dead and dying fish amongst the pollution. The pollution is virtually on a daily basis and varies from milions of small chopped up pieces of plastic, to thick soap sudds, petrol or diesel to raw sewage and many more! The EA really are a usless organisation and only seem interested in getting their tax from anglers .
  2. At the end of the day I think it's pointless arguing over american politics, as we are living in the UK. So, maybe it would be wiser to concentrate on our own country and who we have leading it?
  3. All I can go off is what I see and hear. Just seeing the doctored videos that Bidens gang used to try and impeach Trump is more than enough to me to show they would have no qualms about rigging a vote. For that alone they should be kicked out of power....imo of course. If they can do that to the likes of a former president they can do anything to the man in the street. As I said previously....quite frightening!
  4. Trump was robbed by a fraudulant voting system, and quite blatantly! Frightening really!! Without taking any sides, and looking at the whole thing as a impartial spectator it's so obvious that there are far more people wanted to Keep trump in office.
  5. Yup, you only need look at the youtube videos and any pro trump videos have thousands of likes. Any Biden videos have a handfull of likes and many dislikes. It's quite obvious that the majority of people in America are more in favour of Trump.
  6. Round my neck of the woods there arn't many tackle shops left Elton. Of the three closest to me, one sells items at the door and is open for several hours two or three times a week (I think the owner has another shop or two elsewyhre and he's doing the same with them) the other is closed altogether and the bigger one which used to be Northwest Angling and was taken over by AD will sell things over the phone, you pay over the phone and then go and collect it at a allocated time! It's not good at all, and for what?...i'm sure shopping in any store is just as safe as shopping in a supe
  7. I had a couple of hours trotting yesterday and had a few chub.... I think this sheep had a little too much to drink, poor bastard!

  10. I think it depends on how close you are to the coast, and what kind of rivers you fish. Obviously northern spate rivers are a different again to a lot of the southern rivers which have less flow. The silverfish in my local rivers mostly migrate down stream during the winter months and occupy the tidal areas. So if I wanted to target roach I would be looking to fish the tidal stretches.
  11. With todays clothing i've found the big thick jumpers etc are inferiour to the moderrn thin thermal or even just ordinary clothing. As a couple of examples....underarmour and superdry clothing is good, it fits snug and is very heat retaining. Some of the cragghopers fleeces are fantastic and are only thin. They also last a long time, I have a couple which have been used on a daily basis for some periods for over a decade, and they are still sound. You do need to check out the material though as some of them are inferiour to others. The tightly woven ones are best but may be a little m
  12. Yes, your right the puddle chucker floats do only come with one weight. The weight just pushes into the bottom of the float and cocks it, but, the float can usually take more weightto sink the tip to the desired amount showing. If you have a few various sizes of the float you can change the weights. Failing that you can just add shot directly under the float. You can use the loaded drennan wagglers which have the same set up as the puddle chuckers, the reason I mentioned the puddle chuckers is because they are short in the body and don't sink the line so much. You could use a genui
  13. When using floating bread on the river I usually freeline it, and because I mostly use floating bread on small rivers distance isn't an issue. Although you can get a piece of crust a fair distance by giving it a quick dunk in the water and then underarming it out. Very often I freeling bread on stillwaters also. On still waters I very often fish bread on a running leger set up, this allows the bread to float to the surface so long as enough line is released to allow it to pop up. Once popped up you can tighten up and even wind down to varying levels in the water column or even wind rig
  14. I've targetted chub on floating bread and floating casters on both still waters and rivers and at the right times it can work well. I have targetted very shy still water chub on floating casters and had great success doing it. I've also had chub on still waters using bread, floating, sinking, popped up etc but I found that on waters where the chub are shy, floating casters in conjunction with lighter lines and small hooks are the better option. I had to catty out a lot of casters, cast beyone them and wind my hookbait back in amongst them. This also works well for roach! I r
  15. Yup, noticed Ste's bait choice. I've had lots of chub on bread myself. My biggest chub was 8lb 3 ounces and I caught that one on a large chunk of luncheon meat.
  16. Ok, back that up then, post your catches and stop bragging about it. Regarding maggot drowners, I can't think of any of the AN members who post on that forum.
  17. Blimey "Matthew", why doesn't he post anymore? Be great to see him start posting again!
  18. Sorry to burst your bubble, bubble floater, but just go away, you obviously don't go fishing. I suggest you go and try it on with the members who post o the non fishing section.....I think they will chew you up and spit you out
  19. Your catching some serious fish JV, well done Mr
  20. You are right Keith, it's most likely Rabbit again using one of his sleeper accounts. If I was John i'd ban the retard before he gets any more pleasure from winding people up. I blame that prick for the forum being as quiet as it is!
