  1. Cracking quote Bill - ought to add it to the quotations thread of a while back. As for fishing in wild weather I guess most of us have no choice. If you're restricted to weekends you've had all week to anticapte your trip and if you're like me will have your eyes glued to at least half a dozen weather forecasts and believe only the most favourable !! And still you'll go telling yourself that the fish won't get caught sitting at home!! Chris

    AElfric's Colloquy written in Saxon times around 990 describes a fisherman using a hook and bait but doesn't confirm what bait was used!! Chris

  4. Ah - but I see you've done it Thanks! Chris
  5. Not in a feeder but have used them in a pva bag when using 14mm pellet on the hook. My 'bait of choice' for barbel on the Kennet atm. Chris

  16. Ah but a 2lb roach is 'only' .907 of a Kilo - your right not half as 'romantic'. Chris

  18. I think Paulg may have something to say on this thread - he's 'struggled' with a Leeds for a couple of years and in the last week is now the proud owner of the said Stanton a snip at £110. Yes 45 quid is very cheap - but it's money down the drain if it's no good. Me? I use a Youngs Purist - a lovely reel but it wasn't cheap (it WAS a lovely birthday present a year or so back ) Chris

    Help!

    Chris - be careful with the feeders-r-us I seem to remember Toys-r-us throwing a strop and taking someone to court for 'knicking' the r-us bit. Might be better to avoid the hassle...... Chris
  21. Yup - don't underestimate good ole fashioned raking. My PB last year fell to cockle/red maggot cocktail. This at the end of a very frustrating session when I knew they were in the swim bit not taking anything else I offered (meat, corn, paste, pellet, maggot). Out went the rake again and a change of bait to the said cockle cocktail brought half a dozen, 4 - (nearly)7lb fish in a couple of hours. Twitching the bait every 5 or 10 minutes often resulted in a savage bite as well. This is another proven winner for me if I'm confident that tench are around but a bit undecided. Chris
