    Been reading that Sonny Bill Williams wants to fight Mike Tyson with a $1M purse mooted. Then read that Tyson wants to put on a 2 round fight for charity, though not sure who would want to pay to get beat up. Finally, found this report. No need to read it just watch the video clip. I know Tyson...

    Found this little chap in distress....currently in the garage Any tips on caring for it?
  6. The Art of Casting
    Obviously a shorter rod is better for smaller rivers (as I have found with my recent purchase), but I an wondering if their use on larger rivers is just a fad? I have been using a new short rod on the main Tyne this week, with the fish (as usual) on the far bank of the best pool. I expected...

    Along with my age, comes some them nice things like a bad back after long day. Iv tried some of the back supports, Simms , Hodgemans, and never found them much use, and to be honest a bit of a hassle. They always slip out of place, and even worn under your waders still move about. Just seen this...

    I have spoken highly of the suitability of this line to my style of casting and fishing with my Oracle switch rod. Unfortunately I have now encountered a problem which is very annoying. Basically, one very little used line cracked badly about 18ft to 24 ft from the tip of the line. The cause...
  9. Classified Sales
    As the title above. I don't think i have ever used this reel and has a quality 30lb braid loaded. Spare spool included, god knows where the box went as i have just found it after clearing out one of my cupboards. It has not got a mark on it, absolutely mint. One of Shimano's fantastic bait...

    Have found this very useful the last few years. British sub aqua club chart showing Springs and Neaps for the whole year. Obviously checking the exact details on a local tide table is necessary but I've found it very useful for planning trips in advance. Meet Google Drive - One place for all...

    Just found out the details. All as below.

    Posted elsewhere - so some will have seen this! As mentioned in the reels section, I took delivery yesterday of a rather nice 1st Edition Hardy Golden Prince. Got it all spooled up and ready for the dying days of the season. Being slightly 'nerd - ish' I decided to give the case a clean out...

    Not really a fishing thread but fish related, in that on cleaning my Hozelock pond filter and fountain unit I found that the 2 rubber O rings sealing the uv light unit needed replacing, simple job I thought. Looked on Hozelocks web spares page. Only complete cover unit available at something...
