Hi smithy There is a petion going at the moment, I have already signed it & had replies by return. Google UKIP & scroll down their lists. For those that do not know UKIP is the United Kingdom Indipendant Party, they are the political party that would like us to come out out the common market. Will

Hi westy, 3 of us fished the pier on Monday we had very good results, no whiting or flatties but good codling up to 3 1/2 lbs. Most of the fish were coming from the halfway mark, we moved from the bend after two hours closer to the shore because of snagging. The wind & the stirring up of the sea bed...

I agree that cod prefer colder water, it is possible that the food that abounds the shallows is out of reach because of the shoreline freezing & putting species such as worms deeper & possiby out of reach, crabs are still with us every time but not in any great numbers that we see when things warm u...

Hi Steve, I was going to give the pier a go this week, now changed my mind after seeing the weather report. I am going to wait awhile to see if there is break in this cold snap, I am under the impression that cold shallow beaches send fish to deeper waters, having said that maybe long casting from t...

speed master

Hi rockhoper, Good robust reel, I have used one for all terrain including some heavy boatwork, I found it a good uptide reel. I found that I was limited with distance compared to the Calcutter it may just have been me. I have other fixed spool reels for lightwork but the Shimanos are my main ones, I...

I normally buy my fish bait from Tesco's or a similar supermarket, fresh not frozen. A couple of times I have bought what was described as Mackeral but were in fact Blueys, the striping was totally different, anyway, the Blueys did not show any marked improvement over Mackeral, it most likely a pers...

I can only comment for myself on the subject of lamps. The set up I use is very lightweight with the head lamp being the main one, I have the variable adjuster type this will allow a low light for main use so saving on battery power & the reflection on the water, as well as having the option for bri...

Mail order was attempted some years ago, with minimal success, the blow lug & yellows tend to keep together but the black gut themselves, postage of gut blown could be a messy affair. If they are to be used anytime other than the day of supply the supplier guts them & salts them this tends to toughe...

Hi Dobster.
Sorry that you had a bad one, a long way for the frustration. The old dodger at Cley gave me that old story once, it's the last time I recommend him.
Maybe you guys could join up with the Norfolk boys on one of our beach get togethers sometime.

15.00 per 100 at present from Hunstanton, 16.00 per 100 from Cley although these tend to be small. There are at times a shortage because of tides being poor or areas that are overlaid with more sand so digging is bad. Considering all the price that you paid was top dollar but ok providing they were ...
