    Best hemp?

    Just run out of my last sack and noticed Maltbys offering 25kg at a good price, anyone comment on the quality of their seed. Had some from GW Titmuss once before that was very poor so don't want to risk another bad batch that won't split

    Anyone got any tips for fishing charters here? I'll be there for two weeks in December and would like to try for rooster and AJ's.

    Early tench

    I've been having a hard time on the rivers recently so decided to have a lazy day letting the Delks do the work yesterday. The lazy day got busy as the sun warmed the (relatively shallow) water I was fishing, ended the day with 8 tench with the best being a male of 6.14, happy Valentine's Day to me!

    Tench 2016 - 2018 and counting ......

    Kicked off this year's tench campaign on Thursday with a 13.14 mirror on maggot feeder! Stuck to my guns and got my first tench of the year shortly after, a male about 4lbs, then as I was packing away the last rod left in got me this nice fish of 6.13 to complete the day!

    Fox customer service

    Anyone had experience with the above? I have a Fox Duo-Lite twin tip, the 1.75 tip has snapped and no answer after I e-mailed Fox customer service. Rod was new last Christmas but I don't have receipt, or know where it was purchased so can't go to a shop to progress it for me.

    Energiser headlight

    Does anyone know if the Energiser lamp with the 2 white + 1 red LED is still available? The switch on mine has broken off and while I've managed to glue it back for now I'd like to get another lamp as backup. Tried online search but can only find the versions with 3 white LED's or the all...

    Reel thoughts?

    My Shimano 5010's are getting on a bit and I'm considering replacing them with a pair of the XT4000FA baitrunners. Anyone got any experience with these?, or any other reel in that sort of price bracket that would be worth considering, must be a front drag. I already have a pair of 3500B's but...

    Which rings?

    Due to cracked/missing liners on the rod rings of my 1.75 Prodigy butt section I need to replace them, anyone know which rings Greys use on these rods so I can order some?

    Old rod identity

    I'm just stripping down an old traditional 3-piece Avon rod to replace the rusty rings and rewhip it. Under the whipping above the handle I have found a gold label with the following on it:- J. W. SOU..WELL Fishing Tac............... 36 Station Road .........................6210 Unfortunately...

    Anyone got a spare carrier section for a 12' Prodigy 1.75? Cracked mine on Tuesday and I don't consider it worthwhile to spend the £40 that Greys want nowadays as I rarely use the quiver section.
