Yeah my freshwater licences should be here any day now.

Had all my fishing stuff out in the garden to air it out and found some delights such as a bag of bread that was now just blue mold and some kinda fruit that had gone to a black mush....

But...

We good to go now!!

@stu sleeper 20vt i had a mate who van was called the "wagon" or the fishing wagon.

 

you had to drive with the window open because of the various smells, not nice smell`s either.

 

his argument was 1 they wont smell anything we got on us. 2 they will open the back take one intake of air and shut the door.

 

i read what you typed and was transported back to them smells ........................:puke:

Well that's me just scraped the spare 120 squids together for my season ticket......just havin a bit breakfast (coffee n spliff) then I'm off out to pick it up.

 

I've seen a Scierra 12' 6" salmon fly rod with a reel and shooting head system for 150 squids that i want.....but I "need" a new pair of waders too so more fuckin expense right there.

@Salty crack right on mate, its a fucking liberty the cost of getting a baited rig on the spot, no wonder theres always a big flash merc outside most tackle shops,lol iv got to get a few odds and sods, hooks, hooklink, i noticed the old spool of mantis was well low, wonder how much their hit me up for that now? :shock: my IQ has run out to, 

 

While im on the subject of florocarbon, iv been struggling with hooknots snapping on the strike for no reason, im beggining to think florocarbon and knotless knots just dont gel, iv used 15lb and 20lb in the soft and stiff, theres less with the 15lb soft, but i struggle to fish it as slack as the 20lb, if that makes sense? lol anyone? :lookaround:

I tied Fluorocarbon tippet material  for fly fishing. I also found it snaps at the slightest provocation. £12-00 for a small spool, bollocks, monofilament rules in my kit bag. Threr are also thoughts that because it is invisible under water that it spooks  fish that brush past it on their journey.

I think if your on a budget, or like me, tight as fook, as far as mono goes, you cant go far wrong with daiwa censor in 8/10 or 12lb for basic carping, once you have dry casted some spring out if it anyways, but my problem is, i like fishing slack lines hard on the bottom, with either short mantis or longer iq hook links depending on the bed, my breaks are always as the line enters the eye of .

the hook, (notless) or swivel, (palomar) iv tried choddy (out turned hook) inturned and straight eyed hooks, the inturned is worse, im begginning to think floro is shyt unless your fishing over a sandy bed for small fish,
