Hi Nem
Have a look on this website. I asked a question about using sandeels and someone gave me this link.
I found it very informative.

Hi guys and thanks for all replies but I have another question. I was looking at eyes online but how do I know which size to buy. The eye that was on the rod had an external diameter of 25mm. When looking at eyes, I am not sure which one to purchase. I have been looking at the eyes on the following ...

Hi guys I sent an email to Shakespeare who said it was a very old rod and that they do not manufacture rods, they get them in from somewhere else so they were not able to offer a replacement eye. They did however say that I should contact a tackle shop or get a replacement eye and have it put on. I ...

Hi guys I approached my local tackle shop about getting a new eye on the Shakespeare rod mentioned in the original posting but they only have very small eyes and unfortunately the guy who owns the shop has been off ill and numerous other people have been helping out. Does anyone know where I can get...

I feel a bit vulnerable at times when fishing on my own. I fish at the quayside which is relatively well lit so that I can see who is coming and from a distance as well. A couple of weeks ago I was fishing on my own and there was nobody else around when I seen these three guys approaching. There wer...

Aerial maps

Hi folks I don't know if this would be of interest to people, but I thought I would add it anyway. I am going away in my caravan in the next couple of weeks and looking to do a bit of fishing. I did a Google search for the area I am going and this website came up with really good aerial views. Don't...

Thanks again guys for the replies. Due to being in the chair I mostly fish from the quayside so I take on what you say. I have never entered any competitions being new back into angling but this is something I plan to change. I do know a guy that lives around the corner from me who has been sea angl...

Hi guys and thanks for the feedback. I understand now. I thought you had to limit the length the fish could take the bait hence my shockleader being short. So basically this rig goes straight on to the shockleader and if I decided that I wanted to change to another rig, like a flapper rig I would ha...

Hi crazy I am not totally sure what you mean regarding taking the swivel off my shockleader. My reel is set up with 20lb mainline and then 50lb shockleader which is twice the length of my rod and then six turns of the reel. To that I have attached a snap link so that I can change rigs. It means I ca...

Hi folks

I have posted an image of the rig with a brief description of the length of line and what I have used to create the rig. I hope it makes sense.

Hi guys I am looking for some more information about a running ledger. I bought some of the sliding booms and I was making some rigs up when I suddenly thought that there might be a guide for the length of the rig. I have looked at many websites with images of this rig on it and I have the John Wils...

Hi guys
I would love to come along and help but the logistics of me getting on a beach to clean it up is rather daunting and even then having looked at a map it is over 400 miles one way so as much as I would love to come along I am afraid I can't.
All the best
