    A rod licence...

    My rod licence renewal is due mid-April & the current state of affairs with the Covid-19 outbreak dictates it may well not be replaced as of yet. What are you lads & lasses considering?

    Asian imports & what else?

    Just been reading the Maxcatch threads & such-like, ie. receiving imports from Asia & the like. I wonder what else may have been despatched unsuspectingly along with the knock-down priced goodies?

    You know you want to...

    Aww....goan,goan, goan. A famous quote from a Mrs. Doyle that appeared in an Irish priest's sitcom. Anyway, the point (challenge) is for anybody to post a topic that won't deviate from the original post over this festive season.....(tippets & nylon excluded)

    There's a stewpond pretty close to me that actually lets you fish there on Christmas Day (if you decide to turn up)..... Who's Scrooge? The angler or fishery owner...

    How many...?

    We've all heard the jokes about how many blonds etc does it take to change a light bulb. Well, how many anglers does it take to renew a leader? Can it actually be calculated? Which material, diameter, abrasion resistance, breaking strain, X rating, etc. etc.

    A bit late.

    See the Welsh football team managed to scrape through to next year's Euro finals campaign by beating Hungary 2 nil in Cardiff, losing semi-finalists in the last campaign. Maybe Ryan Giggs knows a bit about the circular ball.
