Noticed twice this year people comming up behind with head torch on full blast caused fish i had on spooked massiveley.
Must have an effect on the fish feeding infront of you if you jump around with one of these on for no reason. Especially on small rivers
Out last night on Ribble very slow but my mate landed a seatrout of 2-3lb on a source boilie. Properly lip hooked.
Probably the one of the most outrageous fishing feats you can imagine.
This year just gets more and more wierd....seriously thought I had dreamt it this morning.
Would be very interested in the results of a serious trial. Blood very effective in mince fishing for chub. Tried dried blood as groundbait for tench ingredient 20yrs ago inconclusive. Also remember reading a book where chub were eating the washout from a slaughter house many many years back...
This question was the result of reading up on how to stop squirrels eating the bird food. Combined with me having too much time on my hands. The answers are just as fascinating as the question. I really can believe the bream thing. I was a very keen match angler in the 80, 90 s and early 2000s...
Not a recipie just a question. The active ingredient in chilli powder and by inference in curry is capsaicin. This compound evolved to deter mammal predation on the chilli plant seeds. It can be used to deter squirrels from bird tables.
Birds can not taste it. Do you think barbel can ?
Ribble - your best chance of a liner from an otter is 10lb mainline preferably maxima they cant see it very well in the dark. Fish tight to the lead close in for maximum otter line bite registration. Good luck !
what are best conditions for cheese paste.
I am catching good chub on it
But both interest from the barbel even fished over pellet as a change bait
Am I destroying my chances of barbel by introducing this this to a swim?
I know it's used a lot in Yorkshire rivers, but I am in Lancashire ...
