  3. thx guys...excellent advice....i also fancyed trying popup boilys for the surface combined with a hair rig is this advisable & how could i make my own with just basic house hold ingredients? & what ingredient should i use & what procedure would i take. thankew the bread is annoying on the controller setup they keep biting the bait off & leaving the hook ..

  6. Hi, I use a special surface fishing for carp normally with float ledger style but on some pools & pegs its important to get out further & less clumsy than my style so i decided to try a basic float controller with 2 feet hook length from float a size 8 hook & some bread. Iv been watching the fish swim up to my bait & look at it & they swim off 70% of the time,& sometimes they grab it and drop it again. could somone explain why they would do this i know its probably 1 of the following but prefere pro advice... i think its this : line drooping down from ba
  7. steve walkers diagram is exactly how i fish for big carp & i tell u now it works... iv had days of 20-30 carp biggest 17 pound on a pool i fish, but i dont think the carp go much bigger at this pool....so give it a wiz....the only prob iv had with this is if i tighten the lines to much & they take it they end up ripping the bait of without being hooked so i tighten the main line then lower the rod so it gives a bit of slack for the line that dangles with the hook bait on. so it gives them space to suck in the bait & move off......this is because im using bread though, if your usi
  8. wicker dave's link explains exactly how i fished follow his link.
  9. Well i thought id come back & let you all know what the camera is like Im impressed...The camera is a winner for me Totally easy to use, no red eye, awsome pictures & great zoom capabilitys. no let downs on the quality side of things.... the negatives: i was using normal batteries & wasnt impressed with the life of them. i havnt yet tryed the 2500 mah batteries that came with it, il save them for a day out , & the flash wasnt all that powerfull. There are plenty of power saving options and things to turn off which i havnt yet fully tested, perhaps that wi

  13. i see the price for 250 but cant find the actual shop when i click on it... any ideas what shop that is for 250?
  14. I see, i wish you had said all that before steve!!! But i can still cancel the camera & order a different camera, if i were to change this camera & pay an extra bit of cash which camera should i go for then, for good shutter,low noise,flip screen a camera which is good for wild life aswell as taking just still pictures il be awaiting your reply so i can re- order. can anyone find it cheaper than this camera I must get it ordered today, i wont get time rest of week , can anyone tell me if the canon S2IS is better than the canon a620 in most accounts...please
