  1. 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
  3. 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

  9. Bringing this back to the top 'cause Paul (G) and I are gonna experiment and have a go at this later this week. If it works it might save a bit on buying maggots!! Chris
