Aqua Products Bedchair cover

Following on from my review of the Nash sleep system I thought it only right to do a full review of my bedchair cover. I have had this one for about 5 years which goes to show just how well made it is. Made out of the now legendary Aquatexx material with a poly cotton quilting; in layman’s terms this means that it is 100% waterproof, […]

Fishing Doldrums

Maybe just maybe the title of this Blog post is a little on the dramatic side but 2 months without getting on the bank is driving me a little stir crazy. I had no free time in August due to work and family commitments. I know I could have done an overnight session here and there. Whilst we are talking about overnight sessions just what […]

Nash Indulgence Sleep System 4 Leg

I have now been the proud owner of this for over 18 months and I have got to say that it is the warmest and most comfortable bed chair I have ever used. It has a deep pile insulated mattress which is removable to allow air to flow through as a cooling system on hot nights. To be honest I only ever remove the mattress […]

Nash Fang X and Twister hooks review

If you have read my earlier post about My Golden Rules of Carp fishing you will know that I believe a sharp hook is of great importance. I think that hook choice is a very personal thing and I would say that it has a lot to do with confidence more than anything else. As for pattern choice my general rule of thumb is Fang […]

A couple more Carp from the syndicate

Another trip to Selby and guess which swim i went in? Yes the same one again but to be fair in my mind I was planning on fishing a different swim as I travelled to the lake. Unfortunately it was already taken and as I spotted 6 different fish in front of my favourite swim it seemed rude not to fish it. It did not […]

My Golden Rules of Carp Fishing

have five things that I feel I must get right to be in with a chance of catching a Carp or in fact any type of fish that I am targeting be it Carp, Barbel or Pike.  In reality what getting these things correct gives me is confidence and being confident means that I fish 100% better then when my head is full of little […]

Selby 3 Lakes Syndicate Update

I have been out on 2 more sessions since my first session in March and I am pleased to report that I have managed to catch on both occasions. On both occasions after a walk round the lake I spotted fish in front of a swim that is as far from the car park as you can get. I have to admit I have fallen […]

Do you really need to use Rig Tubing?

Well in my opinion it is a resounding no and I haven’t used it for years. There are a number of different reasons why I don’t feel the need to use it. First of all I think that it sticks out like a sore thumb on the lake bed even if you try to break up the outline with marker pen. I have tested this […]

Decisions, decisions!

February this year proved to a bit of a difficult month for me. First of all I had to renew my ticket for Tyram Hall by the end of the month but just as I was going to do this I got offered a place on Selby 3 Lakes Syndicate. Now if you have read any of my earlier blogs you will know I am […]

No 2016 Carp yet!

Well the last 3 months of 2015 was a complete none fishing last quarter of the year due to many different reasons, I won’t bore you with the details. This year I have managed two 36 hour sessions and I am afraid to report that so far I have not managed to catch a Carp! I have not blanked but I guess not catching what […]
