  1. yep, korda underwater carping 1, the first one and on the first vedo.
  2. You guys should watch underwater carp fishing, i`ve just finished watching the first episode and it proves your point so much. Although its about carping the majority of the first hour is watching the smaller fish feed as it takes a while for the first carp to be caught. He throws in a small pva bag about 1.5 inch long and small diameter with ground bait compact in one side and particles on the other. When the bag erupts immediately all the little fish are down at the ground bait powder nibbling away, they begin to waft the particle to the sides where the bigger fish begin to feed. O
  3. On the subject of pastes, how do you actually use them ? Just roll into a ball and hook it? I`ve heard u can use a paste to make a popup for carp fishing by moulding it around a cork but how would u use it for general coarse fishing ? Chris

  6. Well basically i have been out quite late on a few occasions now and on most of them there are inparticularly two guys who come down and pre bait there areas, however both do it in 2 very different ways! One guy goes up to a tree and throws in about 3-4 handfulls of boilies within a 2 to 3 foot radius. Everyone he throws is bang on and baits no where else on the lodge! I have watched him and he really takes care over his accuracy. The second guys who i have seen more frequently comes with a plastic bag full of boilies or maybe pellets?! (i think boilies!) and throws handfuls in in ran
  7. Just wondering which u guys use and what size? At the moment i`m using medium ESP bags, the ones with holes in, yet every time i see what i would consider as a decent angler or at least more experienced than me, they seem to be using mesh ! Chris
  8. Hi guys, i was watching Underwater Carping 1 and noticed he was using a spod. I have seen them in the tackle shops and understand they are used to release freebies...but when would u use one, and how often ? Chris
  9. I was watching underwater carping 1 and saw what looked to be a very very clever technique to keep the hook facing downwards but i`m unsure how it works. It looked like, and he even said it was a sliding shot on the hook. It was positioned just below the point, the idea being it would draw the hook to face the correct way and hook on a take. After looking at the pause tho, i still don`t understand the setup, is it simply just a shot gripped onto the hook. I can`t see it being as i wouldnt have thought a shot grippied on the hook would be able to slide, and i`m sure this is neccessary on a
  10. Sorry to interupt the chit chat BUT ...i`m interested in making some hm boilies....are the above recipets (sp?) for the base mix, or the completed boilie. For example one is : 6 oz Semolina 4 oz Soya Flour 6 oz White Fishmeal Is that a completed boilie mix or what else would u add to that ? Sorry i`m just a bit confused and carping_mad has tried to explain before now! ? Chris
  11. Thanks guys, yep i was using a fox swinger as i always do with my carp setup! The guy who took me was Dave Trav from coarsefish.com, dont know if any of you know him, so yea, he showed me some excelent handling and unhooking skills! Chris
  12. I went piking today and it seemed i got a bad batch of mackrel, some sort of genetically modified deadbait fish that i`m sure had hidden wings. Every time i cast in the mackrel would take off and fly away in the opposite direction! Now in all seriousness, i just couldnt keep the mackrel on the trebbles! I went yesterday learning to pike with someone and the mackrel was frozen so it stayed on the hook much more securely (even then we had one escape), but with it being a little warmer today mine were slightly melted and seemed to either slide out or rip out of the fish on casting. So my
  13. and i`m loving it!!!!! Chris i will pm now, however i`m looking for second hand stuff as i want the BRANDED stuff at a second hand price rather than cheaper new stuff! Chris
  14. Anyone sort me out on any of these items, i`m buying on a budget so nothing top of the range but then again, dont want anything rubbish! Email mnbylcr2@yahoo.co.uk Chris
  15. Grrrrr Blanked again! ok this is doing my nut in now!!! PERSERVERANCE!
  16. yea ok, well i`m fishing a lodge with heavy bottom weed, and i just feel my bottom bait is getting caught and hidden in the weed. My plan was to use a 15mm pop-up with a size 8 hook and then i didnt know weather to use a D rig with a lassod popup bait and shot to allow about 3-4inch rise or the normal standard hair rig with popup and shot to allow about 3-4 inch rise. Was gonna add source to my popup and use a stringer of about 5-6 ground bait freebe boilies I have no idea of the deapth of weed but gaugeing from what i can see in the margins it looks about 2 inch deep, BUT could be thi
  17. Hi guys, if you were to fish a pop up, what depth would u use (or should i say how much line should u allow to pop up?) and what rig, D rig or standard rig ? Chris
  18. Blanked on the carp, but thanks to robs help got a few skimmers and roach + perch on mi tuther tip rod!! Cheers Rob, and thanks for your time, really appreciated! Chris

  20. Rob...you know carcus ?? Fancy a trip down sometime, i need some tactics. I was on sandy peg yesterday, when u say throw the carp rod out far right corner, i know which side right is but you mean like towards peg1 side ? I had major major problems with snagging on the bottom, more than anything i`m worried that my bait is hideing when i have cast out!! Chris
