  1. Hi Gaz, Loads of waters around you from the canal at Poolstock, Red Ponds near the railway line on way to Saddle junction, Scot Lane (figure of 8) near stadium way and Houghtons Pond opposite the renault dealer (beech hill), also the canal behind the DW nr the lock gates, and then of course the river douglas in the same area. I would check out the Wigan and district angling society website google WDAA some of the ones I mentioned are their waters though you may be able to fish on a day ticket bought from the bailiff on the bank. If you want plenty more ask at your local tackle shop.... D
  2. Does anyone have any information on Broadleaze fishery in Dorset, is it worth a visit? Thank you in advance.
  3. If you are looking for canal fishing theres good stretches behind the old pilkingtons glass site, a couple of stillwaters around too, one up at Thatto Heath and a big reservoir at Carr Mill dam alongside the A580 East Lancs. If you go up that way nip into Leigh Tackle and Bait they have a new shop not far from the A580 at chain lane shopping centre WA11 9HB. They will tell you all you need to know regards fishing in the area. I can recommend Newton le Willows angling assoc who have some great waters not too far from you near Earlestown, Haydock and Sankey Valley. The ticket isn't too expensiv
  4. Hi, there are two chairs I would have a serious look at... Firstly, the Korum deluxe accesory chair this is a well padded high back chair which sits on square tube vertical legs and to which you can attach all manner of things like a side table, rod supports, baitbowl, optional removable arms and even a wheel kit to turn it into a tackle barrow for carrying all your kit to the peg. Its a sturdy well-made piece of kit and you need never bend down to reach your rod or bait again with one of these, its all to hand. The legs lock into place by engaging a clip-up bar underneath easily done and no c
  5. Chesters, thank you for initiating this thread, I have found it interesting and enlightening, and that is the essence of what this forum is about. Some of your ideas and those generated are akin with my current line of thought, I had put it down to being of a certain age. I am absolutely sure you will not be intimidated by posts from a certain person. I really couldn't let this latest outburst lie without giving you my support. I rarely bother logging on these days as this aint the place it used to be, too many personal attacks and usually from the same few posters. It would seem that som
  6. I got mine from ebay, there doesn't appear to be any listed at the moment but they are coming up all the time, you could give this guy a call... http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/Mal-Storey-A...;LH_TitleDesc=1 Good luck.
  7. It really does work very well once you get the hang of setting it up and trusting it to hold the butt of your pole. If its very breezy I don't unlock the hook so it doesn't spring open, though its never happened to me yet when unlocked. I would say its one of the best bits of pole kit I ever bought. However, it doesn't stop there... use it for your rod butt when tip fishing and you set your rod high to keep the line off the water, when the tip pulls round the natural strike springs the claw open and you have instant control of the rod free from hindrance. The only requirement for i
  8. Simply supplying a name and details, if you search a little you will see that the so called ''fact of evolution'' is merely a theory and to requote corydoras... just because something is popular doesn't make it true. There are none so blind as those who will not see... perhaps we are all blind from time to time. To quote Dave Allen.... Goodnight and may your God go with you.

  10. A tad cruel Andrew, I think to wreck the car and escape unharmed is a much nicer way then closing the road to commuters whilst the plod crawl on their hands and knees for a day or so looking for a reason to explain a fatal accident don't you?
  11. Non, most definitely Non. I cannot disprove it neither can you prove it, so either position is just as valid as the other. Darwinism (evolution) appears to be a flawed ideology which falls into the category of the first line of your post above, and is attracting a growing band of doubters from within the scientific community, interesting therefore that you choose to use Darwin to bolster your atheistic argument.
  12. I thought he made quite an impression on the tunnel, looking at the wreckage of his car. Perhaps he thought he was in Monaco, pressed the loud pedal and was listening to the wail of that engine when he hit some ice, so easily done in one's supercar when one is distracted.
  13. Just to point out one small error regarding woolies sale.. At some point the company was indeed up for sale for a nominal £1, however, the buyer would have taken over the companies debts of around £350 million, not such a bargain maybe? As for the broadening of their retail base, it was necessary to compete or they would have gone years ago. Lets face it no-one would have got through the 80's 90's and 00's selling pick 'n mix, winfield tupperware, ladybird kids clothes, kingfisher tackle and vinyl records. Sad demise its true, but only the fittest survive in Thatchers vision of utopia (u
  14. I go for the M and S thermal longjohns and crew neck top next to the skin, followed by a tee shirt and boxer shorts, then its fleecy lined wychwood bib and brace on the bottom and wychwood reversible showerproof fleece on top. Capped off with a wychwood hooded jacket and thermal fleece hat if its really cold. Feet get the millets hiker thermal socks and either waterproof Hi-tech lightweight boots, Karrimor leather boots or Sundridge hotfoot wellies. I also take my fingerless and neoprene gloves.
  15. It was just as extremely irritating as first time around too...
