Article on BBC news

Now, I'm probably going to be shot down in flames for this, but so be it..... Just watching the news on BBC 1, and there was an article on the beaches around the UK.......... It was reporting how the Marine Conservation Society have said that the level of litter on the beaches around the UK is unacc...

Oh well as regards to the caster not being very secure issue.......... I stand corrected, i just couldnt get on with them at all and didnt think they felt very secure, so personally i prefer the reel seats.
Each to their own i guess :D

Fishing around South Essex, and most of SouthEast???

I would like to state, that for the next two weeks, that the fishing is probably going to be excellent around southern parts of essex with lots of nice sized bass starting to be caught along with some nice rays from around kent, probably from isle of sheppey and around margate. I would say this, bec...

I was thinking along the same lines a while ago eccles, and eventually bit the bullet and bought the 12' 8" hellbender M rod, the green varient :) Its a great rod, which is easy to cast, has brilliant bite detection and showed the bite from an 8" dab the other day from around 100yds. But aswell as t...

I wouldnt bother with coasters at all. They really are pants.
Your best bet would be an Abu Griplock or fuji real seat. If you hooked into a decent sized ray or conger, i wouldnt fancy the chances of coasters holding the reel securely at all.

You probably would be best off buying the tail loops for your weights from somewhere such as veals like already mentioned, but for the grip wires, why not get in touch with a Welding Supply company and get some bundles of Stainless steel TiG welding wire. 316grade Stainless steel would be the best b...

With your mainline, is it the Teklon Gold?? As if its not, generally, the thicker the mainline, then the more it cuts down distance. Your best bet is 0.38 mailine with a penn 525 as with thinner lines it can be a bit of a handfull as far as birds nests are concerned. I personally use 20lb line at ar...

Not too sure i believed all of it that I read in the papers, as much of it is so hyped up by the time it gets printed it is too say the least, questionable. Although i am not doubting any of the other points ie breeding patterns etc, I would argue about the decline in numbers, a few times last year ...

If it has some kind of a brake ie centrifugal, then it should be ok providing you take it easy at first. A great reel which does both, like rabbi says is the abu 7000
