  1. Steve and Andrew are in fine fettle Thanks guys!
  2. Launched around 10am and paddled downstream into the Marina's. A couple of friends of mine have opened a shop so I snuck into their river facing garden and scrounged a cuppa. For those interested, the shop is Bass Online and run by Andrew and Steve Burgess in Horning. Top blokes and their shop is well stocked with anything you might need. I'll keep on trying to get them to delve into our world a bit and stock stuff that'd be particularly useful for us. Found Glyns' calling, too. Makes a decent cuppa! After a long chat and many admiring remarks about my Viking, I made my way upstream, trolling
  3. Interesting concept. Will give it a go, see if it works for me. Thanks for the heads up.
  4. Think I'll be getting out on the 29th and dusting off the Pike Bait gear and drift a few Broads on the Kayak.
  5. Sorry for the delay. Yes I do use it on the sea. Really like the Enchantment, most bang for your buck afaik and not so expensive that you'll weep when you inevitably scratch and bully it! Edit: I use it on the Norfolk Broads, off the coast of norfolk/suffolk and even for surfing on my Surfjet 305!
  6. FWIW, I would be looking at something like a Carlisle Enchantment and look at modifying your stroke to a slightly higher angle or; if you are certain a longer shaft would be of benefit considering possible 'tours', the Werner Skagit, available in 5cm increments from 215-240cm. HTH.
  7. A 215-225 should suffice for 'most' people. If you have short arms or are generally small, a longer paddle will help extend your reach to some extent. The downside is that adding that much leverage can be more tiring, so a smaller blade might be preferable, maybe around 650cm^2. You're right, your paddle of choice is a very personal thing! Remember to rotate your torso a bit to engage your core muscles and lengthen your stroke, too. Try them out before comitting to buy, if you can. Your paddle is your engine and worth investing in. It may even stay with you longer than your Kayak.
  8. http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/291238148015 One of the good guys!
  9. It was all planned. 9 of us from the Anglian Kayak Angling forum decided to meet up at Beccles and troll the Waveney, a river I've not fished for a good 15 years since my grandfather packed up fishing. We planned on ending up at the pub for a pint and crisps and then making our way back. Predictably I turned up late having other commitments and launched an hour late around 10am. Just past the bridge heading upstream to Geldeston, I had my first fish of the new season, a teeny tiny Pike, that really wanted the MH 50mm Chunky Minnow. Then, very shortly after, a feisty little Perch, on
  10. I'd been promising to take Jonathan out for a while now so, we made our plans and I collected him and his gear and off we went to Wayford Bridge for his first ever Kayak Fishing trip. We arrived about 10 and we both immediately noticed my pesky Scupper had mated with the Laguna (again) and the Laguna was in the final stages of labour. Proud father and son shot! This is it's Juvenile colours, they will wear off to a brighter colouration once they become fully fledged predators... P-) Anyway... We got ourselves ready and headed upstream aloong the North Walsham and Dilham Canal. I have to
  11. (double posted as the kayak sub-forum is less well read) As some of you may have surmised, I like to kayak fish somewhat. After a hiatus from baitfishing for 16 months, I am returning to the dark side in search of several species I have a rekindled fascination with. I currently have a 10' Leeda A500 (I think) light multi picker rod. I love this rod and it's my go to rod on the bank. However, I would appreciate something shorter, maybe 7-8' max as kayak space is somewhat limited and when landing fish, a longer rod is a great hindrance due to the acute tip angles required to bring a fis

Any suggestions? Or will I be best served
  13. Well done on keeping it under control. I'd have kicked the idiot into the water then shouted at him to get out because it isn't a swimming pool.
  14. The day starts in a subdued way. Mesi has popped back to see her parents in Transylvania for a few days, plus I have an early shift and about 4 hours sleep... Not the best start. :? Mesi's fans will be glad to know that she got there fine and will definitely be back for the next installment of 'Perch Hunter'. For the time being, I am a waif and stray... I've been meaning to get the kayak out on the sea for ages, over a year tbh, but hadn't gotten round to it until now. I arrive at about 1800, just after high tide, knowing slack water would break about 1900. I am hoping to meet up with
  15. Caught 5 Pike yesterday and got 4 on camera. Made a basic montage of the footage as a farewell to the season. A bit longer this at just over 6 minutes. Hope it doesn't bore you. Contains a special appearance of the 9" Relax Ripper and 'Randy' the Jack. Other notable guests include the traditional Norfolk Spoon and an MH Crankbait. Please leave a comment, positive or otherwise, like or even subscribe if you feel so inclined. *At time of post, vid is still being edited by YT for lighting purposes. Still watchable though*
  16. Thanks! It is a Headcam HD Wide (135deg lens) This one- http://www.hedcamz.com/cameras/hedcam/hedcam-wide?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tp-ecommerce.tpl&product_id=187&category_id=4
  17. My first fish on my headcam, simples... tchhh! If you know where I am, good for you. If you don't, sorry but I won't tell. Lure was a Kopyto 4L on a 6/0 7g jighead.
  18. The River Bure and its tributaries and Broads. I 'grew up' (as much as I'm gonna) on it. I'll never suss it all out but it's a childhood friend I'll never forget.
  19. Not many Chub in there I'm afraid. I'm sure the odd one comes out now and then but not commonplace by any means. Good Roach can be had from the gravel run at the end of the pool, exceptional Dace and I've even had a Brown trout out of there too. It can be a very challenging place and it's very very snaggy but you might beat your PB Mountain Bike if you're lucky. There are far better places on the Broads for general fishing but I'd say it's unparalleled for its Dace.
  20. Hey Neil, They are about 2" and weigh at most about 6-7g. I'm sure Mark will let you know whether he's discontinued them if you PM him. They are absolute killers for Perch. I've caught 2oz to nearly 2lb ones on those very lures. The pic of my ugly mug, the Perch and the black version in the montage was Mesi's very first lure caught fish too! Not used them for Chub (none where I fish) but I'll bet they would be fantastic.
  21. Another vid from my channel. Headcam coming shortly! Let me know what sort of content you want me to have a go at besides the reviews. All comments and constructive criticism gratefully recieved.
  22. No, but Kato is, Andy. You can contact him on the lure anglers society forum. He's on the pit too, I think.
  23. Just started a YouTube channel. Let me know what you think, guys.
  24. Perch every time, though I'm biased by using mainly lures year round. That said, when the wind drops I'm going to have to break out the 3wt and expand my species list. Apparently Roach are a cunning adversary on the fly...
  25. Done quite well myself on inline spinners but if I had to choose just one lure, it'd be a 3" Kopyto in white on a 5g Jighead. However, I use them a LOT so I know how to fish them and I think that's the crux of the matter. Plus it'll probably only work on the waters I fish too... The search continues
