  2. He was a true legend & will be sorely missed quote: In an interview with the BBC looking back on his career, Barker said: "I would like to be remembered as one of the funniest men people have seen on TV As far as I'm concerned, he's got his wish many times over ... Rest well Ronnie
  3. I primarily go fishing to catch for the table. If I have caught enough recently then I return whatever I don't have a need for. I also stock up on mackerel through the summer for frozen bait during the winter. ANYTHING undersized goes straight back as quickly as possible. Once I have enough for my needs (not many) I then fish for pleasure. Not that many go back as I don't catch that much!

  6. Darwin awards 2005 Yes, it's that magical time of the year again when the Darwin Awards are bestowed, honouring the least evolved among us. Here then, are the glorious winners. Darwin Award Winners 1. When his 38-caliber revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach, California, would-be robber James Elliot did something that can only inspire wonder. He peered down the barrel and tried the trigger again. This time it worked And now, the honourable mentions 2. The chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat cutting machine and,

  9. I also never actually met Alan in person, but his generosity & kindness touched me. One of life's true gentlemen, we can all learn a lot from people like Alan. My best regards & deepest sympathy go out to the family he has left behind, it must be a huge loss. [ 13. September 2005, 10:31 AM: Message edited by: FearTheHands ]
  10. Exactly the same questions I asked the 1st time I got hold of Mackerel feathers having had no fishing experience at all before & found very similar unnecessary sarcasm from so called 'experts' Mackerel feathers are ready made to use. Most have a loop on either end. Look at the way they've been tied & you will see which direction they should be attached to your mainline (the feather pointing down) Simply attach the feathers to your main line, then add a suitable lead weight to the other loop. I never use anything heavier than a 4oz lead personally, but this is down to personal

  16. I've only attempted this once with particuarly poor results What favourite mehtods do you have for cooking LSD? More to the point how do you skin one ??? Recipes please chaps
  17. Pffft! 1st rod ? At age 3 I dove into the local canal & resurfaced with a zander clenched between my teeth Try & tell that to the youth today & they won't believe you ...
  18. Have been out of Weymouth before on 'One For The Nob' (Hi Richard) & couldn't have had a better trip - I'd recommend this boat very highly. I've also heard nothing but good reports about Pat/Carra Carra & having had met him (he put me straight on filleting a Ling) I have to say he seems an agreeable chap I haven't given up on West Bay (especially as it's on my doorstep) There are plenty of other charters going out from there, they can't all be bad
  19. Yes, spasor, Fred Basset does pong quite a bit! Thankfully he spent most of the time in the cabin until we got out our sarnies... big_cod - I don't buy TSF each month - care to elaborate ?

  22. pumphypete - this will not work if the recipients (ebay) mail server is set to only accept plain text email & remove attachments (which it obviously is) Try uploading it to a webserver & including the URL in the email Don't give up as these type of corporations rely on us normal 'oiks' not bothering. 95% of things I have stuck out & followed through have had had a successful conclusion Power to the people!! as Foxy used to say ....
  23. Well, sad to say not a very good report at all. Skipper & his female sidekick were one of the most unhelpful people I've had the misfortune to encounter. All but myself were boat fishing virgin's & no instruction was given to the novices, it was left to me to show them the ropes (& I'm no expert). The thing that p*ssed all of us off (other four being city dwellers) was the blatant disregard for the sea & fish both in charge of the boat clearly showed. In particular the amount of litter they threw into the sea was utterly disgusting. Empty pop cans, tape, shopping bag, f
