Re: House martins

Had a huge hatch of winged ants in the garden the other day.There must have been a hundred plus swallows and martins feasting overhead.It was like a bait ball frenzy.

Re: House martins

They are lovely. We've always had lots of swallows but the martins only appeared a couple of years ago.4 nests this year.

Re: Casting all day

It's tension all day 'cos you're waiting on that bite.If you relax you start missing them. :mad: It's a hard day's work so think of it like that.Regular breaks,good posture,don't overdo it and painkillers.

Re: Casting all day

I'd guess its your casting technique or you're trying to hero cast to the horizon, even if you don't realise it. Yea could be that to some extent, I do like a long cast, I will bear that in mind for sure! If you half your casting distance,you'll feel it less and you'll make twice as many casts! :sm...

Re: New member, high point and low point. Please try and be kind

It happened to me on the shannon.It wasn't warm or very deep or anything, but they did come to the surface very quickly and then they fight hard.Did the same as you keeping them as long as possible but when released they were still unable to dive.Who knows if they made it? You can only do your best....

Re: Got the Bstd!

To answer the original post; a couple of months back I watched a magpie chasing a goldfinch over the garden.It looked pretty serious.Beautiful though,almost like a WW2 dogfight.

Re: Popped up deadbaits

Try a small bait first and it should be ok then experiment in the margins with different size baits and poppers.Non vac packed pollan will stand up without poppers. Try air injection as well.Some tips here at 12 mins. and the line out twitchy thing around 26 mins in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...
