This line of correspondence is Matts fault he started it; it's just not fishing, he should have realised that others would follow an example. All this mickey taking out of Darren; he will get a complex, he is happy with his face it's the only one he has got, anyway it's rude to mock the afflicted. W...

The joy of stainless is it seems less weighty than the brass paternosters, the ones thay I made were very springy but were a pig to bend as the wire although was not thick it was strong. I ended uo with the type that can be twisted around the line, these come in handy if an extra hook is needed or a...

Good luck on the day sorry I can't be there. I obtained a big brolly from my local pub, it does the trick, a bit of waterproofing & away. It stood up to Chapel winds ok so that will do for me, anyway it has Heinikin stamped on so it will reach the parts they no other can, [it has not worked with the...

Whether it be multiplier or fixed spool I hope none of us forgets why we are fishing in the first place. I know that there must be preferences it depends on how well the pockets are filled, what one needs the reel for ie, spinning, wrecking or just run of the mill beach work. Never for get the thril...

Hi Matt [gonk] there are so many Matts that I know now. I know that you have fished around the Shingle St area, if you can get down to Bawdsey, in the estuary there is bait to be had. At the low harbour rag can be obtained, hermits can be netted from under the jetty & if the tide is low enough lug c...

Hi wavenyone, It is strange that you mention about contamination by fags or oil. I can remember years ago being warned about it but had completely forgotten. I do not think that is the case here as Matt is a smoker & I am not, I filled up with diesel he came no where near it. I think that I may have...

It was a joy to get some good fishing, a long way from home but well worth it. As Matt stated he had codling & I had alternative fish, what was strange but by no means rare is that 2 mates fishing side by side with the same casting style, the same bait, more or less the same rigs & tactics & distanc...

Hi Sam, I use these as bait & have had some success on them in clear water or using them as a cocktail. If you freeze them try & take them in the frozen state to the beach, wrap them in newspaper. If you can thread them frozen on a baiting needle & put them on the hook that way they will bend around...

Hi Matt, I'm on, you threw me a bit then. Good to see your back.
I'm planning the 18th of the month if the tides are kind to us, I will ring you as soon as I know.

Great meeting, it was good to put faces to names for a change, although there are always some that we do not meet for various reasons, ie, the distance apart that fishermen are, night tides, I think that I managed to meet 50% of them, which was good, the rest at a later meet no doubt. Not to many si...

Hello Ru, welcome to the site. Earthworms! I have used them in tidal rivers, they will blanch out & shrivel a bit, the good news is that I caught fish albeit eels & flounder. If you put on a good batch then I don't expect the crabs will mind, no seriously try anything once, nobody will learn unless ...

I might be a bit late with this one I hope that you pick it up. Keith the older ones amongst us know the size limits or should do, but how many young ones realise that size limits apply to all marine species in general with few exeptions. What you have said regarding the crab size does apply so is t...
