  1. Hiya Elton, Not sure about the pregnancy thing, but I have read quite a bit on this. Snoring can be caused by a gain in weight (that's a given) , some types of medication like Tylenol PM which causes your body to relax too much, alcohol, and lack of exercise. I didn't know I was so loud at night until I got married. I found that while I have fixed most of the contributions I still snore like a buzzz saw. Boots sells breathe right strips that my wife now swears by. Good for me since I can still sleep with her!!!! They are a bit expensive at something like 6 pounds for 10

    Vielen Dank. Exactly the thread I remembered. I didn't go back far enough in my search. Your name reminds me of a river I fished in Oregon at the base of the Steens mountains. It runs through the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. It has a nice head of cutthroat trout in it as well as some huge carp. They tried to cull ALL the carp from the veiwing pond at the refuge headquarters. 500lbs of dynamite didn't do the trick. Thanks for the link.

    I ran across a thread some time back about fishing books. Unfortunately I didn't write the titles down and can't seem to find that thread in the archives. Can anyone either refresh my memory or recommend a few to pick up? One of them was referred to in the thread as good bedside reading. The other was quite old but apparently left a lasting impression. Thanks in advance
  4. Well if there ever was a deterent for housebreaking that was it. I was a bit thrown off by the term. In the U.S. house breaking is what you do to your dog to make sure he fouls outside. Thanks Eddie But then we should always avoid the house with a moat.. Never heard of guard fish before though. Cheers
  5. I'm sure you all have seen it, assuming it was a past episode. Last night he referenced a fish that apparently likes genitals. Does anyone know if this is accurate? I'd prefer to avoid it. I noticed there wasn't anybody in the water as well.

    I get your point Den. Each to his own including opinions. What I should have mentioned was preference. I prefer to fish in places where I can’t hear vehicles, kids screaming, people cursing and the occasional mobile or pager going off. I prefer to fish where I can think or not think if I so choose. I enjoy casting to places where there might be a fish, not where I know there’s a fish. (they wouldn’t call it fishing they would call it catching). It’s great catching but it’s also great leaving the swim perplexed and wondering what I could have done different or what I might try nex

    I ran across what I think was a carp fishery between York and Harrogate yesterday. It was lined with fisherman with no cover (trees and shrubs) The "ponds" were no more than 40 meters wide and maybe 100 meters long. Needless to say I wasn't impressed. I've seen similiar things in the states where they have trout fishing indoors in a kiddie pool. Maybe even more like big game ranches in the midwest where you can shoot trophy Elk. All you have to do is get the guide to drive you to the herd and pick out the one you want. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't fish it nor would I support su

    Pecans in the Cemetery On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree just inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts. "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me," said one boy. Several dropped and rolled down toward the fence. Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me." He ju
  9. Actually I use a 20lb trace with 30lb braid. I haven't had any problems with the combination. I very much doubt that you would ever put the kind of pressure on a fish that would subject anything over the line rating and cause it to break. Typically at least for me if I do put that kind of force on the line it was caught on a snag and never have I actually broke the trace only the line. Interesting how that works!! It's a good idea to use the right equipment for the type of fish you are targeting. You wouldn't use a size 26 hook for pike and certainly not a trace for roach.. Yo

Between 21 and 30 a woman is like America, well developed and open to trade, especially for someone with cash. Between 31 and 35 she is like India, very hot, relaxed and convinced of her own beauty. Between 36 and 40 a woman is like France. Gently aging but still a warm and a desirable place to visit. Between 41 and 50 she is like Yugoslavia, lost the war and haunted by past mistakes. Massive reconstruction is now necessary. Between 51 and 60 she is like Russi

  12. Into a Belfast pub comes Paddy Murphy, looking like he'd just been run over by a train. His arm is in a sling, his nose is broken, his face is cut and bruised and he's walking with a limp. "What happened to you?" asks Sean, the bartender. "Jamie O'Conner and me had a fight," says Paddy. "That little B@$t^#d, O'Conner," says Sean, "He couldn't do that to you, he must have had something in his hand." "That he did," says Paddy, "a shovel is what he had, and a terrible lickin' he gave me with it." "Well," says Sean, "you should have defended yourself, didn't you have somet
  13. There was a couple that had been married for 20 years, every time they made love the husband always insisted on shutting off the lights. Well, after 20 years the wife felt this was ridiculous. She figured she would break him out of this crazy habit. So one night, while they were in the middle of a wild, screaming, romantic session, she suddenly turned on the lights. She looked down and saw her husband was holding a battery-operated pleasure device... a vibrator! Soft, wonderful and larger than a "real one". She went completely ballistic. "You impotent bastard," she screamed at him,"ho
  14. Now that the season is about closed what did you fish for and what did you catch? Did you do break any records? My PB for pike was 7 lbs. PB for perch was 1lb 9oz. No records but definitely fun!

    Bikenut, from the sound of what you describe, it could very well be a scam. I costs next to nothing to send a text, but the number you call could cost quite a bit if you dial it. Not long ago there was an email floating around about dialing a certain number in regards to a member of the family. It ended up costing thousands of pounds or dollars. And no way to dispute it through your phone company. Sounds fairly similiar to me. Either way it's probably better to let be. I've never gotten something for nothing, but then again if it is legit... Let me know!!
  16. Hiya Nick, if you have a moment could you set me up as well? I'll have a few pictures to post later in the year... Cheers
  17. Sooo.. Macdaddy did you do well?
  18. What will happen if the USA, Britain, Spain, Italy, Holland, Portugal decide that France and Jermany should no longer be the heart of Europe? It seems as if this has already started. The US is looking at a concept of housing troops in W. Europe, to countries in E. Europe like the Czech Republic, Bulgaria and Poland. The reason? To make troop movement faster and easier. Now I don’t know what the actual motive is here as with just about anything else having to do with Iraq, Germany, France, and the U.S. What I think it has to do with is funding, maybe a way to save money, maybe a w

    Hiya Peter. I've looked forward to your posts since you seem to be one that is catching and that makes for a fun read. With only two weeks left before the closed season I can use all the help I can get. It just so happened that I was thinking about something similiar to the Ace jerk that you were describing. The water was running fast today and very dirty too. It was clear on friday. I think it has put them off. Seems that I was the only one catching yesterday. I hope you get into more so I can read about it.

    Just wanted to thank Peter Waller for putting me onto some pike today. I wasted half the day chucking stickbaits (rapalas) that were green and yellow diving plugs, surface plugs, rattle traps you know the like. Resulting in a few takes but nothing in the net. Then I realized/remembered that I had a few orange and yellow spoons. Scared the hell out of myself after the second cast with that spoon. 5.5lb jack... Plus many more takes than I had all day. I'll be back at it in a few hours and let you know how I got on. Thanks again Peter red and yellow is the color!!!
  21. Macdaddy.. like your comment on American beer. So true, so true. I had a bit of luck with perch a while back on the local river but at the time the water was rather murky. They were practically leaping out of the water less than a foot from the bank after a chartruese (sp?) shakespeare spinner with a silver blade. Caught up to 1lb 9oz. Try fishing slow and near cover if you can. I've also had a few follows from pike but no takes with rapala stickbaits. I'll be making some more of my own actually. Try rubber worms fished weedless too. You can weight them or leave them.
  22. Thanks GrahamX and Gray. I’ve tried just about everything under the sun. Twitching, lures fished slow and on bottom, sink and draw, mister twisters, homemade copper spoons, you name it and chances are I can give you some method equivalent. The impression that I was getting was that pike are easy to catch. There is a grand supply of them near where I live but I could not believe it until I caught one myself. I think they are so lethargic at the moment that catching them will be far and few between. I spoke with a guy yesterday that said last winter they did quite well with lamprey
  23. I couldn't very well take back what I wrote but was slightly embarrassed even after editing and then sending.. I'll have to try the perfume (cologne) the night before while I am getting everything ready. I fabricated my own pop-ups, but I am wondering now how long I'll have to wait before the next run. It was a few months wait for this one run. (more like tap tap and steady pull) I found something that actually works so I'll keep at it.
