  1. I bought myself one of these from Basspro and it has arrived this morning;


    Rod carrier



    I have just finished fitting it to the left hand side of the front forks on my bicycle, and tried it with a made up spinning rod and reel, as I cycled down the road and back. It is going to be a very well used accessory as I cycle along the Norwich city centre sections of the River Wensum.

  2. Over the last two season I have often gone out fishing using my push bike as my primary mode of transport. Finding it ideal for nipping from swim to swim along the Norwich city sections of the Wensum, and venturing further a field to the sections of the Yare and Bure that are accessible from the bank. Most of my fishing is with lures and I have a variety of rods ranging from a 6 ft single piece Jerkbaiting rod, four piece 10ft spinning rod, and two piece 12 ft deadbaiting rods. The four piece is broken down and strapped to my ruc-sac when cycling, and the 6 ft and 12 ft are strapped to the cross bar, along with my 6ft long landing net handle. I prefer to have about 1 ft sticking out beyond the handlebars, and the rest sticking out over the back wheel.

    I have a bag wth a map pouch fixed to my handlebars which contains my wet weather gear, and a puncture repair kit, the rest of my fishing tackle, sandwiches and flask are carried in my ruc-sac on my back. This is a very effective and efficient method for covering several miles of river bank in a day.



    I do like the bicycle rod holder from Basspro that Peter Waller has posted in this thread. However, a word of caution; I would prefer to fix this type of bracket to my front forks, rather than the rear ones. Firstly, with your rod mounted at the front of the bicycle, you don't have to worry about trying to get your leg over when mounting and dismounting, and a made up rod pointing upwards, and in your line of sight is less likely to be damaged by tree branches, etc. Even so, I have still managed to prune 4 inches fro a 6 ft spinning rod by contact with the gated archway near to the Cow Tower in Norwich.

  3. I know Gerry was very respected and had a lot of friends on Anglers Net, and its therfore with a very sad heart I'm letting you all know that Gerry passed away this afternoon at King Hospital in London.


    My thoughts is with his family & friends.

    Gerry was a really good friend to me, suppporting me through all of my recent troubles. I am just too upset to say any more. except that my thoughts are with his family.

  4. A woman walks into a Ferrari dealership. She browses around, then spots the car of her dreams and walks over to inspect it. As she bends to feel the fine leather upholstery, a small fart escapes her.

    Extremely embarrassed, she looks around nervously to see if anyone has noticed her little accident and hopes a sales person doesn't pop up right now. But, as she turns back, there standing next to her, is a salesman.

    "Good day, Madame, how may we help you today?"

    Very uncomfortably, she asks, "Sir, what is the price of this lovely vehicle?"

    He answers, "Madame, I'm afraid I can't say. ... ..........If you farted just touching it... .............you're going to sh!t yourself when you hear the price."



    A woman walks into the Chemists and says."I'd like some Cyanide to poison my husband!"

    "I'm sorry" says the Chemist, "It's not as easy as that, I can't just let you have Cyanide!"

    With that, the woman reaches into her bag, and produces a photograph of her husband in bed with the chemists wife!

    "I do apologise" says the chemist, "I didn't realise you had a prescription !!!".


    A woman meets a gorgeous man in a bar. They talk, they connect, they end up leaving together. They get back to his place, and as he shows her around his apartment, she notices that his bedroom is completely packed with sweet cuddly teddy bears. Hundreds of cute small bears on a shelf all the way along the floor, cuddly medium-sized ones on a shelf a little higher, and huge enormous bears on the top shelf along the wall.

    The woman is surprised that this guy would have a collection of teddy bears, especially one that's so extensive, but she decides not to mention this to him, and actually is quite impressed by his sensitive side.

    She turns to him... they kiss... and then they rip each others clothes off and make hot steamy love.

    After an intense night of passion with this sensitive guy, they are lying there together in the afterglow, the woman rolls over and asks, smiling, "Well, how was it?"

    The guy says "Help yourself to any prize from the bottom shelf."

  5. Once, I acccidentally picked up a can of Minted Garden peas from the cupboard, instead of sweetcorn. I didn't realise the mistake until I had driven 15 miles to the lake, and then tackled up.

    However the skimmers and pastie carp loved them.

  6. I have surplus to my requirements one newish but unused, American style chene anchor. It was professionally manufactured here in the UK, The design being slightly modified for use in the silter conditions of East Anglia. It is complete recoverable by way of the slip ring. It weighs in at around 9kgs or approx. 20lbs


    I am looking for a Masterline cyclone zombie lure, Mean spinfry spinnerbaits and light Toby spinners, but I will consider any jerkbaits (except Fox) up to about 100 grams.


    I live a few miles north of Norwich, and at 20lbs in weight it has to be local pick up only.

    However if there's a days fishing involed I may be tempted to deliver it up to 30 miles.


    Send me a pm, and I'll send you a photo

  7. This how I received this joke



    An Indian chief consulted his medicine man about a sex problem that had been going through his mind. He told him -


    "Being chief have three wifes. Year ago I receive gift of skin off a hippopotamus from friend who go to Africa. Skin on floor of teepee along with skins from buffalo.


    One night get drunk on firewater, make sex with two wives each on buffalo skin and third wife on skin from hippopotamus.


    Nine months later wives who had sex with on buffalo each give birth to a son, but wife who I had on hippopotamus had twin sons. Is there magic in hippopotamus skin?"


    "No." said the witchdoctor "Is simple mathematical equation."


    "Squaw on Hippopotamus is equal to squaws on other two hides!"
