  1. Cheers for all input. The warm water technique seams to have done the trick. The spool was label side up when I loaded it and its 20lb sea mono for mackeral feathering whilst on holiday in Cornwall in a few months time. Cheeeeers all
  2. Ace idea will try it Cheeers
  3. Yo dudes I have just put some 15lb mono on a reel to use as a spare, I thought I had loaded it the right way but it started to spring out all over the place so I cut it back a bit and tied a knot to keep it tight. My question is how long will it take to re memorize (is that even a word☺) I shall not be using it for around two months. Is that enough time????? Cheers
  4. To catch a carp you need to have really expensive shiny gear, no point trying to catch on a standard rig, go must use something with leadcore and you must use really expensive boiles, and a lot of them too. No point using bread or sweatcorn or worm it MUST be carp bait. What also helps if you wear expensive fishing clothing and I would always advise a bivvy and NEVER travel light always use a barrow. If you use a rucksack you will be frowned upon☺☺☺
  5. I have ordered one. Is it easy to batter carp PR just deep fry it Joke please don't ban me I only eat haddock and cod. Joking aside I was sea fishing in Turkey for pleasure and a local showed me his technique. 2 feet of line with approx 6 hooks then wrap it in soaked bread and watch the fish foul hook themselves. Awful but they fished for their dinner.
