Korda Tackle Safe and Compact 140

I am still trying to be a tidier and organised Carp angler, it is a long and slow process, but I am trying. These 2 pieces of equipment from Korda are helping me to achieve this. I used to carry with me a large Wychwood tackle box that was filled to the brim and took up a lot of room. I must admit that a […]

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 […]

It is supple enough that I am confident that it is not sitting at a funny angle on the lake bed, yet has enough stiffness that it will cause the rig to reset if it is ejected (which if we are honest […]

First Visit to Selby 3 Lakes

Having followed Julian Cundiff for more years than I care to admit I finally had the chance to fish the Selby 3 Lakes complex which Jules had written so much about. I barrowed my mountain of gear around to my chosen peg which was the Oak tree swim. I really could have only chosen one peg that was further away from the car park but […]

Why should you buy an Aqua Products Endura Tristar De-Luxe?

      Really the title should be “Why did I buy a Tristar De-Luxe?” but there you go and the answer to that question is that I needed something to protect my new custom built Torrix rods (there will be a review of these soon).
