    All round specimen angler although Predators do get me going the most! Supporting the mighty Norwich City (Season Ticket Holder)
  1. I have a lot of unused kit for sale as a job lot on Ebay for anyone interested, if you want to make me an offer on here Id rather do that to save on fees! Anyway item number is: 121287517006
  2. Sorry for the delay in replying, I have been away on my holidays I wasnt being rude. Thanks for all your help, luckily the handset is still on E Bay so I will bid on it, just need to get my head around what to do once I have got it!
  3. Just thought I would share this picture with you, its a cracking 40lb 2oz Mirror landed from Celtic Lakes in Leicestershire. I am the fishery manager so its a plug really but i am dead chuffed we have done our first fourty, cracking fish.
  4. Thanks for the reply Si, sounds expensive and complicated! But I will give this info to the local model shop geek and see what he says!
  5. Can anyone please help, I have got a Microcat Mark 1 baitboat but unfortunately no handset ( long story involving my big feet and 20' of water ) I have contacted angling technics who have advised me that it is no longer available and that I would need to upgrade at a cost of £180 If anyone knows were i can get a second hand set please let me knowm, maybe there is a spares or repair jobby somewere?!
  6. I did in the past have reservations about Pike matches, however as long as they are stewarded in a correct manner and the safety of the fish is ALWAYS put first they are fine. In the British Pike qualifier we had a few weeks back I had 1 steward for every other angler, every one of them good pike anglers themselves ( 5 of us are level 2 ADB coaches) The anglers were, especially the less experienced, advised on various bits as the match unfolded and a great match was had. I am a lifelong Pike angler with many years full time fishery management experience and would NEVER even consider putting the safety of my fish at risk. As for the rule regarding the 28lb minimum trace size etc, you are right to a degree in that the comp is probably going to see 90% pike, however, Zander get caught all the time on Pike gear and we wanted them to count. As for the Perch they get caught on Lures and again we thought it would be nice to count the 3 main predators in the lake, some anglers fish feeder tactics with worm and caster if they are only a few pound behind in the match and again it makes for a good match, different at least. But as you guys correctly pointed out its the wellbeing of the fish that is the main thing and just wanted to reasure you all that is is most certainly a massive priority and we have a zero tolerence policy to anyone breaking the rules.

  8. What the hell are you lot suggesting?? I am actually the coach in the article and I did lose the tackle as reported! I was not insured so if you are suggesting that it is an insurance job then there will be some law suits brought against all of you! I am disgusted by the attitude of anglers on here, I lost over 150 whips, 100 sets of rods and reels, nets, seat boxes,terminal tackle and hundreds more bits and pieces ON TOP OF THAT i lost all of my own tackle, all top quality tackle including Carp, Pike and general tackle. I am a full time fishery manager and have been for many years, I am also a level 2 angling coach registered with the ADB (www.cjanglingacademy.co.uk) and reguarly coach many kids on many different courses IM NOT A FRAUDSTER!!!!!!!!! How dare people criticse me on an open forum! I didnt even put it in the paper in the first place, they contacted me I didnt want any sympothy from anyone! As it happens the article went in the paper 2 days after the event (last wednesday). The gear was in a security container with 2 locks I paid £75 each for, unfortunately these cockroaches were determined and used and angle grinder to break in, they also dragged everything including strimmers, outboard motor, mowers,tools and even my kids bikes over 100 yards, these were very organised scumbags I have been offered replacement tackle for free by many very kind hearted local people and I have turned it down, I did it to warn other anglers and fishery about these scum bags!!!! I am VERY upset about these comments and will be taking it further, Elton do something about these disgusting people.
  9. I once dropped my Delkim TXI sounder box into the River Thurne Nr Potter Heigham, I had it clipped to my breast pocket and as I leaned over to net a small jack pike it came off and plunged into a freezing cold river! I spent ages with my net scraping the bottom but despite about 2 ton of silt on the bank no joy, in the end I stripped off and went in after it, I did eventually find it but the freezing January temperatures had taken their toll and spent the next week with terrible flu! I certainly wouldnt do it now thats for sure!
  10. It came out yesterday afternoon aroun 5pm, it was taken on a small deadbait Roach. The Zeds are averaging 12-13lb so far this summer.
  11. Just to wet the apetite a bit there was a 12lb 8oz Zed out of the lake yesterday, a real cracking fish.
  12. I went Tench fishing when I was younger and had forgotten my tin opener, of course I attempted to cut the tin open with an old blunt pen knife and ended up slipping and slicing the top of my thumb open on the razor sharp lid, 17 stitches and LOTS of blood later I had learned a valuable lesson!
  13. Hi all, I thought I would let you all know about the Predator Open match series at my fishery at Celtic Lakes, Frisby Nr Melton Mowbray.
