Advice please

In a couple of weeks I'm going on a golf trip for 3 days with some mates to 5 Lakes Golf Club which is near Maldon/Mersea. The others all hate fishing and prefer to play golf from dawn to dusk, so I was looking at playing in the morning then sliding off to wet a line. I don't know the area at all an...

Totally wrong oldgrey fox.

75% of Portugal's laws are implementations of EU Directives. Just like the UK.

A sign of things to come?

Not been on this site recently so I'm not sure if anyone has picked up on this previously. Portugal has introduced a blanket sea fishing ban on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, supposedly in the interests of conservation but probably EU lunacy. Commercial and recreational. Boat and shore. They have...

Call me an anorak (yep, that's my striped woolly hat hanging up on the back of the door) but I find tying rigs quite therapeutic.

Keeps me busy when HID is watching soaps B-) B-)

The number of petitions I have signed over the year all to of no avail, but ok just one more time. keith I've also signed it but I agree with Rabbi.

I haven't got that particular model but I have a small spinning reel (GTE-C) and a 7000 big pit reel - both Shimano fixed spools.

They are the business! I won't buy anything other than Shinamos now.

Don't worry about it Rabbi. You are pretty high profile on the site anyway and, if others are like me, most of us look at the home page for the latest posts and refer to the local forums or advice forums for specifics. Your part of the world is a long way from mine but there's no reason why you shou...

Thanks Welchy, I'll try that.

Wanted to be sure because I've seen several posts saying that knots with braid have to be super-strong.

Help with braid

I'm going to have my first go spinning with 14lb braid. However, in view of the price of the stuff I was thinking I might put mono on my FS reel first then tie the braid to it. The idea is that the mono will not actually be used - it's just padding out the reel. Can anyone tell me the best knot to j...
