  1. Happy Birthday AN! Sorry I have not been on here a while, but would feel like a fraud as my fishing has lately been minimal. Thought I should nip on to congratulate on the 10 year landmark though. Well done Elton, here's to the next 10. Cheers, Simon
  2. Hi All, Just a quick note to say hi as I have not been on here much in a long, long time. This has simply been because I've done so little fishing this year I haven't had much to talk about on that front. I was playing a lot of cricket in the summer, which used up my passes quite a lot, the rest of my time being taken up with work and family. Can't complain really but I want to fish a lot more next year. I may incentivise myself by joining up at the lakes in Walthamstow as I have heard some good things about fishing there. I should hopefully be on the banks of the Kennet and Avo
  3. Truly sad news. My thoughts go out to Danny and his family. Simon
  4. Or a pike bait if you name is Nige Williams!!!
  5. Just seen this thread after being on holiday. My twopenceworth: Nige Williams' head simply got too big once the celebrity status settled in and I think he thought he could do know wrong. He (before the livebait incident) was living in a world where everybody he came across was giving him respect for his achievements and singing his praises. He was almost the official voice of pike angling in Anglers Mail and the sun shone out of his bum. No surprise his head got so big that he thought he could do no wrong. What is amazing that he managed to fit such a swollen head so far u
  6. I don't think many of your arguements are wrong. My issue is one of tone, and the inflamatory nature of some remarks. With regards to hypocracy, here's an example: Somebody who comments about smokers poisoning other people with their smoke in public, but then drive around in a car. I am not condoning smoking in public places. I agree with the smoking ban in pubs and am happy with it, so long as there is decent and sufficient area outside for people to smoke. Just as I think roads should be properly surfaced for people to drive upon. I hope I leave you enlightened.
  7. Erm, having clicked on a thread about livebaiting for perch I thought that's what I'd be reading about! SPSwallow - Budgie's entitled to his own opinion, as you are too. But I must say one thing - I find the way you say you are unsure about the way smokers are treated unfairly, and then write what you write afterwards ironic to say the least. I can honestly say that the way a great deal of non-smokers talk / write about and to smokers is patronising and high & mighty with it, and should be toned down by about the same proportion that smokers are over-taxed by our greedy bloodsucki
  8. A very cunning plan Leon! I still have a mental image of a lovley garage with draws and shelves and a fridge and racks for my rods. I'd also like to have £10m in the bank and Kylie Minogue on my, erm, lap, but ho hum....
  9. Davy - I couldn't possibly say! Rabbit I'm not quite sure of the link between somebody having owned a porsche and them receiving a witty appraisal is? But judging books by (ex) covers doesn't work in this case I'm afraid.
  10. He has rescinded that statement and said he couldn't have done a thing without the support of the predominantly English fans at matches in the UK. Perhaps he realised which side his bread was buttered. More likely than not, he made a throwaway comment ANY Scotsman would make ('who are you supporting Andy?' - 'well, not England haha'), gets turned by those [email protected] at the Sun into 'Murray's racist jibes at England'. He was 18 and naive at the time. And by the way I am English, should that matter. I'd take anything said in the papers, or most media, with a pinch of salt. Cheers,
  11. Very familiar - it was posted by the fella who sits next to me at work (bergs)
  12. Thought's I'd forward this on. Something that landed on my desk - a rather frank appraisal of a French lad who worked where I do (paid) for a few months. Made me chuckle...

  13. By the fact the thread's on it's 4th page it would seem it's still something people want to talk about. Some people are occassional users and therefore won't know something's been on several times before. People like discussing stuff and it will come up again. We haven't had livebaiting one for a while, or pole vs reel, or favourite fish. They will come up again and again. It will prompt a few 'oh no's' and directions to previous threads, but it will also prompt other people to enjoy posting and discussing. If somebody starts a thread that they believe is interesting (and this one
  14. My problem is it's a balance thing. Like Rob I am a Liverpool fan. Being North London based means I only see them live 4 or 5 times a year, but the good thing about being in London is you'll always find somewhere that is showing the match, even at 3pm on a Saturday. I also play cricket in the summer on Wednesdays and Sundays (every other Sunday anyway) and don't want to drop this as a) I love it and it's the only thing stopping me from getting fat(ter). I work in Hammersmith 9.30am til 6pm Mon-Fri. Add my two kids into the equation, plus the dog (Jack Russell, who would get b
  15. Cracking Tench Alan well done mate
