    Shelf life of pellets

    I had a bucket for about 6 years or so that caught me plenty of fish when I started using them again

    Looks like fishing from this Wednesday

    If you do it online it is all computerised so your license will be valid straight away. You might have to wait to actually receive your license though

    Looks like fishing from this Wednesday

    It will be heaving on all lakes by the weekend if the weather is good. Iv not fished a lake in a fair few years now so I’m not really missing out. Normally at this time of year I’m just counting the days til the rivers reopen

    Spopper rod and reel?

    I use a big Bertha spod rod rod for carping that’s 5lb tc I think. I use a 4lb tc rod for marker but that would be fine for spombing on the river. Got both second hand. Think the big Bertha was fairly expensive but the other rod was about 25 quid

    I need a quality Umbrella

    I need one as well as mine is pushing 30 years old. I had a look at the big one show a few weeks back and didn’t see a single one only the brolly/bivvy systems. The one I got currently is huge but heavy being that old thick material and I’d be worried with the newer ones ripping on the thorn...

    Illegal closed season fishing

    Didn’t think you was allowed to use hemp as free bait in close season. Thought it was worms only

    The Big One

    I was hoping to get some pellets but they wasn’t as cheap as I was hoping they would be. Unless you brought one of those 25kg sacks or whatever they were and there was no way I was gonna carry one of them back to the car. I only had a quick walk the round the place to be fair so probably missed...

    The Big One

    Anyone been to the show today? I popped up for an hour. Got myself a new bag as the zips are going on mine and just a few leads and some pva. Anyone brought themselves anything nice?

    Travel rod advice

    The price of a rod means nothing in terms of catching fish in my opinion so long as the rod is up for the job and doesn’t fall apart. The line and hook is a lot more important along with having your bait in the right place at the right time

    Ruckbag replacement

    I had to replace my chair this year and brought a chub classic chair I think it’s called. It fits in the clips just about. I think the height of the back of the chair is what you want to look out for cause if it’s a high back it might not fit the shoulder straps. My chub chair is similar...

    Ruckbag replacement

    Is there any thing on the bag to stop the chair moving sideways like the hooks on the korum bag?
