Re: Painting a boat

I will be interested in the replies to this one my boats in need of a paint job too but seems to be peeling in patches which come off clean but solid in other spots. Did mine this time last year Fergie, I'm certainly no professional painter bud as it's more than a little flaky in certain areas now....

Re: CRT zander removal

Seen something on jokebook about the CRT are intending to remove zander from canals (to please the matchmen) I've been doing a quiet little bit on the Midland Canals each season for about 5 years now Kev and I've yet to see a single matchman or even a pleasure angler with a Roach Pole. I've met one...

Re: Poll - what issues are you having with the forum

We are both on Win10, me and "Fentiger", he's on laptop, I'm on desktop and there's this massive lag, only since the update here (in full editor). :eek: Mine seems to be sorted now Alan. :thumbs: Smileys on the bottom instead of down the side and everything seems to be as it was before the changes.

Re: Poll - what issues are you having with the forum

On the proper reply now - with lag issues.

I wondered if it could be caused by the page loading (stacks of emoji's etc) but that doesn't seem to be the case.

At the moment, my typing is about 5 words ahead of what is being displayed - a chisel and a slate would be less annoying. :laughs:

Re: Fen zander

I'd suppose it might be worthwhile looking at what/who's eating them? It's a sh1tter we know, but they are faced with quite a few more predators these days. To talk water, I fished the Fens pretty regularly between 1995 - 2011 and the biggest difference I noticed in the waterways during the latter y...

Re: End of the line by Tony Miles

I've always enjoyed reading Tony Miles articles, he always came across as a really decent guy - I never had the opportunity to meet him sadly.

Hardback for me but I did very, very nearly flip for the leather.

Re: Hard vs soft lures

Every lure has its day I suppose but in the depths of winter, I'd tend to opt for a soft-plastic lure that can be fished very slow and close to the bottom.
