Aye well done thats a good bag of fish :D.
Bervie has never been good to me but the way my season has gone so far I might tempt fate during the next lot of N.Easterlies and try it yet again.

shrink tube

Hi,
Have a look at this stuff on ebay 220521526916. Fishhunter from the site got some and it looks good and has excellant grip. Planning on getting some for myself. Just a word of warning-though fishhunter may disagree- the red shrink tube is a bit on the pink side ;)

Good tip. Tried this with my slosh and it worked. The only thing is with wider spools you have to get your thumb over each loop that is locked in as you wind.
cheers,

I have never see so many rockling from one venue and if we had been using smaller hooks would probably caught a lot more. I also didn't know they were so voracious, one of fishhunters had corkwing wrasse sticking out of its mouth with only the tail showing. The rockling were all small three beardies...

Got to agree with tomcat that albacores never had the cred that Penn Internationals gained. I think that this was partly due to being made by Shakespeare- they were at the time I had my 50 - and at that time Shakespeare did not have a reputation for quality. Which, I think was a bit of a shame as Sh...

It is a long shot but you could try and heat the reel seat up using a hairdryer as they might have used hot melt glue. Once you warm it up it should turn and the glue will seep from the edges, then you can just pull the reel seat off. Failing that follow the advice Kenny gave you and be careful.

Hi Paul, You will not get slated on here cos its obvious none of us has a clue how a parabola or T curve for that matter is related to a fishing rod. Hence the digs at the rod manufacturers for coming up with very tenuous claims and psuedo - scientific descriptions for rods. The older hands amongst ...

Just noticed your other post Jim wish we hadn't gone so far north now. Maybe we have just been unlucky as the four trips in total have produced just 3 fish albeit the biggest was 8lb exactly. I remember one memorable trip about ten yrs ago when I had over ten fish in this weight range and the two gu...

cod fishing?

I have headed up north three times in the last couple of weeks fishing from Arbroath to Aberdeen and thought I would post about the latest trip. Got up at 5am loaded up the car and headed north to a mark just south of Aberdeen. The conditions looked great with an easterly wind stirring up the sea an...

parabola

In Economics we use a bell curve as a visual aid to display the effect of increasing or decreasing inputs. As Kenny said it is a V with a curved bottom = a parabola. The shape of the parabola can alter dependant on the data inputs: more carbon = wider parabola - the V widens Less carbon = narrower p...

torness

Hi Wheelturner, The bass tend to more scarce in the winter and to be honest there are better places to catch them. The Torness bass over the years have got smaller and smaller and nowadays it is hard to get a sized one especially at this time of year. Hopefully now the Scottish Parliament are gettin...
