    Trigga Shelf Life 10mm discontinued ?

    Possibly a combination of the Nutrabaits Company sale and RollinBaits (who do their baits) moving premises (and currently not producing). Nutrabaits say "email sales@nutrabaits.net or call us on 01709 370990"

    Is it me? Is it real?

    Well I must admit I have not seen "Tiddles" on the Yorkshire Derwent for at least four years now. She used to follow the Deer herds up and down the Howardian Hills. There is a story that goes around (and repeated on BBC4) of two old dears, in Malton quite near the river, calling out the police...

    Is it me? Is it real?

    On the Derwent, you know something is up when all the sheep are no longer in the fields and the farmers are around at dusk and into the night shining their lamping lights across fields from the road as if looking for something.

    Peaty Blankers

    David, to be a bit pedantic I think you'll find that as a Chalk Stream (and tidal in its lower reaches) the Hull has a more consistent and higher flow than the Swale in all but raging torrent conditions

    John Baker

    Nutrabaits "rationalised" their products earlier this year (eg no more GForce). I would think Trigga will continue to be sold. Bill is developing new products as part of his new role.

    The breakaway lead thread debate.

    Given all the input from sea anglers who have used them far longer and more frequently than me (I am a very rare sea angler), there is a difference overlooked. And that is what happens at the landing stage - on the beach I can pull the fish to me while wading in the edge On a river for Barbel...

    goodbye leslies of Luton.

    Similarly - no one locally stocks John Baker products. Always delivered in good time. And the discounted BFW (Big Fish World) gear has stood the test of time.

    Ashfield Angling Club

    If the emails I receive and the postings on other forums are true, it is heading upstream at the sewerage outlet at Stoke Bardolph! After a good many years, and now the ostracizing of many former committee members who found many of the waters for the club, i might be relinquishing my membership

    Barbel Diet Analysis

    You need a licence to do it - so you are informed of the difference between native and Signals. It is illegal to catch, squash and return to river due to the eggs from the female - on a bad day on a specific river not so long ago I had 15 of them being squished by the cows behind me!

    New Yorkshire Derwent Record

    TBH, knowing the swim would make little difference. The Derwent fish are notoriously nomadic. Anyone knowing the history of known or proivately kept recaptures on the river knows this.
