  1. HI, Anyone had any expereince of fishing in ones of these, would like to know pros and cons if poss and any comparisons with the other popular models. Stu
  2. Aprantley the pictures of the stolen stuff will be posted on their website tomorrow, so Let do them a favour and ebay search for anything similar and look in your local classifieds to see if any of the items come up, theres a fair few of us on Anglers net from all across the UK we may turn up something, my guess is though that these were nicked to order so we might not get anywhere but its worth a try....... isn't it ????
  3. MAny thanks for the answers, but I have a horrible feeling that this place is not going to be the right type of venue for the Forum Lads, well certainly not for the ones that have a bit of experience behind them. I can find plenty of places close to home where i can catch single and doubles all day long. If I was going to do something like this it would need a water that was totally unkown and enjoying the pioneering aspect of the event or a venue where you don't find yourslef wading though buckets of small carp. A farmer saying a 18 Kg fish 20 years ago doesn't really float my boat when you h
  4. I'm in the fortunate postion of working for myself so can take pretty much time out I want to and this offer does look interesting, but I have to agree with Rob it would be a lot of effort if the lake turns out to be stuffed full of singles and low doubles, so would like some more detail of what we can expect to catch and what you have caught before before I am prepared to commit. some other questions :- How much for Bivvie Hire ? How much for Bed chair hire ? Will you pre bait, if so what with, how long and if there is a charge what would it be ? Has the lake seen boilies if so wha
  5. Simon, It was me, and I can't come, so please don't go making the effort to bring your spare yak, but many thanks anyway. Stu.
  6. Rob, No, it came to me last night they were Magno's, anyone remember them ???
  7. Redmire will always hold a special place in my heart even though I have never been there, although that may change soon. Linear is a fantastic place I have basically grown up there moving around the day tickets as they have opened and closed then eventually onto the syndicate. But and its a big but, the most special place for me was a small 1 acre lake near home which I used to cycle to as a kid with my mates, sunloungers on backs, bags of Kevin ________s cream RM30's in the pocket, rods strapped to the frame of the bike, wibbling and a wobbling the half mile there heart beating fast a
  8. One of my mates went on one of these trips and said it was a fantastic day out and Hugh was a really pleasant guy.
  9. Carp is the UK's largest freshwater fish. It is prized in Poland and served at Christmas, fried with potatoes and vegetables.
  10. That was nice. I was only asking for answers to a legitaimate question posed by the golfers at work, first time i've been basically told I'm an idiot on here Budgie, doesn't feel very nice.
  11. Super Arguments, but...... CAN IT BE DONE POll please Oh and i didn't stipulate that it had to be a golf ball driven as hard as possible in a prefect trajectory, it could be a high lob shot where the trajectory would be inclinded more towards the verticle plane, meaning that the ball spead would be slow at the fulcrum of arc given greater oportunity to smack it with a lead.
  12. So in theory at least, a lead could hit a golf ball in flight. You're surely not talking about accuracy though, are you? As in literally knocking an airborne golf ball out of the sky??? cheers Davy, Yup your right, I'm thinking it may be possible, possible stupidly, but I've purposley knocked a spod out of the air a couple of times....
  13. Folks, Just havin an argument at work between the fishers and the golfers, the two questions I need an answer to are.... 1) Velocity of a lead in flight ( say a tournament caster was casting a 3oz lead) 2) Whether an angler could knock a golf ball out of the air with a lead. Replies needed quick, I'm loosing the battle Stu.
  14. Dunno mate but I have had a number of rods which only had a weave on the Butt section or half way up the tip section, so I don't think you have been sold a bummer.
  15. You could try ringing orchid lakes and asking them, they should have seen one within the flotilla that goes out each day..........
  16. Two kingfishers, perched on my rod tip at the same time, unbeleivable. Doesn't really count but scared the crap out of me when a lad was bivvied up with his missus and the wife turned up, sounded like the banshee was on the lake............ ??? Munjacks, in Oxford. A Sheep with a smokers cough. Swimming cows. Cows falling in. Morehen Murder !!( On jumped on the others back and held its head under till it drowned!!) Yetti (oh no that was for another thread)
  17. You are probably better off joining a club who will help you learn the ropes and have access to the right waters for you. Try portsmouth and district angling club, good website..... http://www.portsmouthdas.co.uk/
  18. Folks, I can usually get cheap flights to portugal, the old dear is in a travel club as she has a house out there, so once we know a bit more and know hes interested I can do some research on flights for us if you want. Stu.
  19. diogo, Put my name down, I have sent you a personal mail (not through the forum) Ta, Stu.
  20. Oh and I don't think Rabbit was being ironic, guess we'll know if he logs in.......
  21. Zoo plankton doesn't like in fresh water does it ???
  22. The sites address was www.eveningsecretfishing.com have a look and see what you think.
  23. Folks, Just read the (v.long) article which you are directed to when you click on the link above the forum list for a "banned angling tool" called the Evening Secret. It seems to be some sort of electronic gadget which draws in Zoo plankton sunsequently bait fish then predators. Has anyone used it or knoiw someone who has, i just can't beleive it would work and certainly not in fresh water as it says it does. I'd also like to know what itis actually doing....... Help please........... Seems to be a yank thing so have you heard of it NEWT ??? Stu
  24. A "Bett Lynch" lookalike bird by the name of Sheila Skeets used to run it on behalf of the council.Had a small chalet in the diving board corner. God yeah I remember her now, wonder if she is still there..............
