Possibly I did not have any alcohol yesterday. Let's try again after its been tweaked.

Just playing about as I've not had many Perch on baits that run very shallow etc. I was casting to a small shoal of Chub and the little fella came out of nowhere and hit it. Great fun.
That's better.

Lovely fish too. :cool:

The net looks optimistic! :grin:
As mentioned before on here I don't drive and jump on and off various trains to get to my venues along with the offten early morning bus. So I need a net that can fold up and be stashed away. If I could find a smaller net with lure friendly weave I'd love one. :thumbs:

Monts, I've been using a vintage efgeeco 24" net with a snowbee rubber replacement mesh. The efgeeco nets come up on eBay now and again and they fold up.

I`ve been using the old version of the Spro folding net for the last 8yrs or so and it does the job...30" arms and rubber mesh. It`s comfortably landed pike to 20lbs which have gatecrashed perch sessions. The new version is very similar but lighter weight and looks decent :thumbs:

Thanks for that Matt.

Mark the one I currently use is 36 inches, but it gets in the way in the summer a smaller one would help. :thumbs:

Dave,

I'll have a look for that, just done a quick search and most seem to stock the latex folding spoon. It's not massively urgent but would help. :thumbs:

I only picked the catalogue up last week, so probably not in stock anywhere yet.

I can't figure that out either. Looking about on the lure angling websites of late, the amount of brand new soft plastic baits make me chuckle. They look the same as the last five years or perhaps I'm just cynical. :grin:

I know John Milford mentioned Mark's Fat Belly Shad on this section of the forum recently? But I'm buggerd if I can find it? Mark mentioned that it moves a fair amount of water. Yep it does, had a couple for a few years now. Took them out for a swim today on a falling river, but the clarity was about two to four inches so happy with half a dozen fish, nothing to set the world alight just good fun. I used to baulk at lure fishing in coloured water, but if I wait for perfect conditions in the Autumn/Winter I'd never get out.

Apologies to the unhooking mat police, wet spongy farmland is good enough for me.

Nice one mate. That shows too that you dont necessarily need mega bright patterns if the bait creates enough attraction with the "noise" it makes :wink: :thumbs:

Haven`t done any vintage style baits in ages, so very happy with this one which i`ve just finished :smile: ....a sort of Creek Chub Viper style bait, which resembles a Heddon Tiger too in some ways :grin:

Your floats were sprayed the same way mate. I was experimenting with a different spraying method, trying to get the colours to pop more on my perch pattern :grin:
