    Valentines day

    I dont know how the unfortunate in the picure managed to stay still long enough for the artist to do his work. From personal experience I would say it is almost impossible 😱😱😱. David

    National team funding

    Agreed, If I thought I was funding others to fish in a way I object to it would be quite a struggle to weigh off the need of a rod licence against the objection to where the money raised was going. David

    river wharfe addington

    Alex, there is a nice mainly flat ( one little hill, about thirty feet high 😱 ) riverside walk from Addingham to Ilkley along the riverside, starting at St Peters Church in Addingham, the walk is about 3 easy miles , each way, it is signposted. You can take a walk around Ilkey, have a coffee or...

    river wharfe addington

    Hi Alex, I think you perhaps mean Addingham, the river there is fished for trout , there are no day tickets or free stretches as far as I am aware. The river changes to coarse a bit further downstream, at Poole I am led to believe, this may help...

    Roaming chair

    Hi Mark, I thought about that , but discounted it, I have no less than 3 " boxes "already, A Shakey Beta box, a Shakey Team box , and a vintage basket, both the boxes are fitted out for sea fishing, the basket would not do as it is just about collapses when I place my butt on it , and lastly, I...

    Trent barbel rods

    Depend on where you fish Ste.. I fish a swim that is very wide, but only about 18ins deep for 3/4 of the way across,the shallow section is filled with ankle breaking rocks, and has some deeper troughs in it, to catch, it is needed to cast over the shallow rock infested area into a deeper fast...

    Trent barbel rods

    I use a pair of Fox Barbel floodwater Duos, 2.75 for the Ribble and Trent, purely on the grounds of rocky nature of the Ribble and Trent, at least the bits that I fish, I am not at all a Trent regular though, in fact I could really do with a bit more Trent success than I have had so far . I am...

    Anyone made there own maggot feeders

    I must admit Paul, I really like the "curler" idea, but I only seem to be able to find really garish colours , and ones that are big enough to sink the Titanic, the ones in your photo look just right , a good variety of sizes , and dont hurt the eyes. David.

    Anyone made there own maggot feeders

    I Richard, if you look carefully at the bucket of feeders, I have about twenty made from film cannisters, I was lucky enough to get a bag of about 50 or so about 15 years ago, mostly black, but some were white, they work very well, in fact I made some beefy feeders with the clip top attached...

    Anyone made there own maggot feeders

    Hi Peter, I make my feeders mostly from plant protector tubes, they are basically brown plastic spirals , I unroll them , cut them to the length I need , staple at either end to form a short tube and cut a strip of lead to length ,and bend it lengthways on to the tube tucking the ends in , a...

    Roaming chair

    As you say, we have to agree to disagree there Richard, maybe exactly what you like in your setup I would find tiresome ,who knows? It is a very generous offer you have made , I would love to take you up on it, but I already have a rucksack that does not get used much, and like you I would...

    Roaming chair

    Hi Wayne, I borrowed the photo , and yes its a chub lo light , mine is old, if a little battered , but still works, I was looking for something a bit smaller and lighter.. Richards setup is ok, but too bulky and faffy for me, with that setup it takes more than a few seconds to up gear and be on...

    Roaming chair

    To be honest Richard , if your photo is your “ roaming” setup, I would call that a long stay session setup. In fact its almost identical to my setup that I have been using for about ten years for “sit and stay “sessions . I am talking about one rod, one rest, one landing net, and a small bag of...

    Roaming chair

    A few ideas there , I have a bank cushion that I use in the summer occasionally, but a chair for the winter is prefferrable , like the idea above Dave 👍 David

    Roaming chair

    Hi peoples.. For 2020 I am thinking about doing more "roaming" than I have done in the past, a lighter approach entireley, so what I am looking for is a suitable and reliable seat , fairly light, and a bit smaller than a standard type seat, I presently use an ageing Chub Chair, maybe 15 years...

    Your favourite Blockend feeders

    I can honestly say in all the years I have been fishing, I have never ever bought a feeder... I always make my own, or use the ones that I find when either walking the banks or fishing. Maybe I am just a tight Yorkshireman, but I cant see the value in buying something that (at least in the...

    Aldi Fishing Gear

    Well, went to Aldi, as I fancied one of the Jackets to match the salopettes ( I have a couple of pairs of the salopettes already , and am very pleased with them) Very disappointed to find that what they call XL is what I would call medium.... I am 6 ft, 14 st 8 , not particulary "big" in the...
