    I wish I knew what to do with them. They just get crammed into a top part of a cupboard or left lying around the house -
    Must have 4 or 5 newsboys, 10 trucker/baseball caps and a few straws pork pies/trilbys. Not counting the woollens as they are many.
    Old drop handlebars fixed to the wall would be cheesy bike hipster style but you’d need some real estate on your walls

    I’m not sure that is covered by PD. Could be a full planning job. Looking at the site, I imagine it’s expected to be developed anyway so the planning department are likely to be positive to a change to residential. You could speak to the planning department but they may be slow and unhelpful - or pay a fee and speak to a specialist

    Yes, a bit. What are the details?

    Season has been frustrating - targeting tench but only had 5! And 4 of them were two in each session so lots of tenchless sessions. No blanks but lots of bream, roach the odd Rudd and perch. The last time I went both rods went at once and I netted two bream in the same net, one was by far the largest I’ve ever caught - must have been getting on for if not double figures. Hate them though, they stink and don’t fight

    Don't you just hate it when that happens. Couple months ago I had to spend about 45 mins battling a nutty 20lb mirror which took double caster on 6lb bottom and 1.25 ledger rod. It took a good few big runs into the middle of the lake (which can get very deep) and weeded me a few times, every time I thought I'd lose it but somehow it stayed on and just about fitted in the net. Kinda ruined my tench fishing but what a buzz! Will try and find the pic

    The tench have been elusive this season. It's nearly the end of summer and I've only caught 4, two of which were from a session last week!
    First season on club waters, getting to know them. Without a night permit so usually fish an evening and can be a shame having to pack up as it gets dark when I feel like I'd like to fish into darkness for a couple of hours.
    Main problem is nuisance small fish, baits don't see to matter. They will nibble and pull at everything. Current method is light bed of hemp, krill pellets and casters with 10mm boilies over, bomb and PVA (should be called PITA) or feeder with the ends plugged with some GB.
    The other problem is pike, two sessions I've had them grabbing fish I'd been reeling in. Toothy, stupid, bastards.
