    Petition for the abolition of the closed season on rivers

    I took my dog for a walk down on the banks of the river Aire, a couple of EE's fishing away with a little barbie at the back. I mentioned the close season & their English took a turn for the worse.. Would the lack of a close season have made any difference? But when you see what some of the...

    Social media, apps and 'big fish' security

    A VPN puts your location through a 3rd party host which in turn puts you in various locations worldwide. I'm currently in the Asda in Moscow on the Novichock isle ;)

    Closed Season Controversy

    I've noticed that old mouthpiece Keith Arthur keeps putting his two penneth in about keeping the close season.. I'm guessing they don't have a close season in the Florida Keys;)

    Smooth braid

    I've been trying Berkeley professional grade braid & its pretty good stuff, I can't get on with the super slick colours. I tried the Suffix 832 & the colour washes out straight away.. In fairness the original PP isn't bad. I've got a spool of super slick stuck in a bucket of dye as we speak :)...

    'Slick' braid

    Hi Terry the braid itself was pretty similar to PP but after my first session the braid just went white (where it had been in the river). I've had PP on for years & it keeps it's colour. I know it's a confidence thing but you'd think they could use a process that keeps the dye in.I bought it...

    Colour Blind

    I'm badly colour blind but it seems some barbel are not. I was on a session recently & started using a dark green coated braid (so it said on the spool) anyway I only had enough on the spool for a couple of hooklengths.. The only coated braid I had left in my bag was a sand coloured variety. I...
