Re: It's been a while!

Anyone been out recently! It would be nice to find a spot that's not been exploited by 'magnet fishing', 'metal detectors', cyclists and people 'dogging'? =)) Our sister site is actually one of the most popular metal detecting forums in the UK, the theme and software was used from that site here :)...

Re: West Sussex - Tackle and tactics for newbies?

Would appreciate your views on what I should recommend to friends though- they won't want to spent much more than £50-60 all-in, so very much the budget end. Question is whether to suggest Spinning, bass or beachcaster? Hello, that`s a tricky one for me to answer as I am from the South Coast, I thi...

Re: Spinning Rod / Reel Combination ?

Ah right, now I would advise (in case you don't already know), picking a harbour entrance or estuary at the right state of the tide. E.g. when I lived in Exmouth a few years ago I would cast across the the Exe estuary at low water starting about around 1/2 hour before the turn of the tide. The bass...

Re: Spinning Rod / Reel Combination ?

When I go spinning I use a 9' 6" uptide rod and of course a suitable fixed spool reel. I would suggest a Daiwa Reel as I have found them to be very robust over the years. Some would say that an uptide rod is maybe a bit heavy but I have not found it so. It has enough power to cast a fair distance a...
