Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

None of this "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap it just means i have at least two enemies!

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

 

Mathew 4:19

Grangers law : anything i say will  turn out the opposite or not happen at all!

Life insurance? you wont enjoy a penny!

The river was dropping off yesterday after some recent downpours so I decided to go and christen a new reel i'd recently got hold of (a kingpin Zeppelin). The reel's larger than what I normally use b

There’s a tree shedding sap all over the cars and whatever else is under the tree next to a pond I’ve just come away from, and the cars and ground are literally covered in wasps. I had a few on my car roof and bonnet which managed to cling on for the whole journey home.

I had a great morning catching some nice Tench and Crucian on my Tench Float rod and my Sheffield Centrepin so it was worth having to brave the wasps on the way back to the car. I had 7 bars of gold from around 10oz up to around 1¾lb in the early morning all on redworms plus two small red eyes of around the 2lb mark or thereabouts. Nothing grand or worth taking pictures of but a very enjoyable few hours nonetheless.

and no Dice 🎲

Bold Bear,

It is always great to hear of an enjoyable session. Not accusing you of anything and you may already know but on the other hand sometimes ignorance is bliss.

Drippy trees?  If it is a sooty looking substance it is no doubt aphid poop.  If it is clear and the trees are oaks it is - wait for this - drippy nut disease.  

The aphid poop (aphid honey) comes off rather easily and I have never found it to be a problem on future session.  The drippy nut disease is a different matter. It is most difficult to get off of anything, especially your "favorite" stuff and of course the car.

Just a heads up

I didn’t notice what type of tree it was; Ill have a proper look next time; but it was a fairly youngish tree with a trunk of no more than a foot in diameter; and the sap on our cars looked clear-ish (only slightly coloured) and was quite sticky, and it seems to happen for a short time each year, although there seems to be more wasps gorging themselves on it this year; probably because of the excessive heat we’ve been having; I assume it’s the Aphid Poop (Aphid Honey) that you mentioned Phone.

After a good wash it came off my car ok. I’ve had this happen at another place in the past too.

Yes Dave, I was Grammatically Incorrect there - die is singular & dice is plural.

Tigger, please catch a Brace of Dace so it's right!! :fishing: :fishing:

I was responding to Phone lol i forgot to copy the post in question but he said chub and chub not chub and dace (or dice)

"I kinda feel like a dope thinking your chub looked quite a bit like a chub DUH "

I could be grasping the wrong end of the shtick though ?
