Well that's got me thinking !
1 Carp Syndicate Ticket (Impulsive Purchase)
1 Tench Ticket (They do have other waters but never fished them)
2 Warwickshire Avon Tickets
1 BAA Ticket (Never Use)
So that's 5, it use to be 9 but given up all my Wye and Arrow Tickets
Been down to Aldi today and had a look and came away with the Green Fishing Holdall / bag which for £12.99 is a no brainer perfect for roving around, light and loads of space.
Now the Green Neoprene Boots,tried a pair on to my surprise they were immediately very comfortable but very heavy...
The Roach fishing on our bit of WA is taking precedence over the Barbel at the moment and there have been some very good catches of them in certain swims ! Graham was fishing with me last Friday and he was bashing out the Roach whilst i was blanking on the Barbel !
We have plenty of pictures on...
I have a Acolyte Plus 15' which i bought for float fishing in deep deep water for Tench,haven't used it yet but you can run 6lb line through it... so it says !
You can have a waggle with it next time i see you on the bank !
Always have a few days on there Mark early season its nice to get a bend in the float rod, yeah the fish are definitely getting bigger out of the 13 fish 10 were decent a couple pushing 5ish ( How big have you had them ?) had the lake to myself and they were still feeding when i left at 2 PM
I have been using these for a few seasons and they are available in Amber Or Grey lenses
I have ordered some different hooks as you guys have recommended and will try them out on my next visit and see if they make any difference.
I do foul hook some of the average size fish and usually land them also some nice Trout fairly hooked that stay on despite their aerobatics !
Yes i was wondering about the action of the rod ! I'm using a 14ft Drennan Acolyte Ultra which i thought would be perfect ?
These fish are in quite fast water and maybe i need to be a bit more forceful with them as they seem to come off quite quickly ?
