    Because you should have added that to the pitiful 43K and made it a wrap by now

    Though my match days are long gone, I need the pole for those times when presentation is critical - for Tench. Being able to cup chopped worm and caster in small tight spots right on your hook bait, it's more accurate than a method feeder with better bite detection and less resistance. And you can't really fish a pole in a low seat. I have a box but it's vintage and the old Octoplus legs aren't compatible with any attachments these days it was more sensible just to buy a new box.
    Come June I'll be lazing behind two Optonics for them though as hopefully such finesse approaches won't be necessary.

    I was quivertipping the other day and detecting bite indication was comical.

    I took a slightly too light tip, and my rod isn't really a "heavy" feeder rod so I was on 45 grams in the slacks - so the tip was rising and falling steadily but you can see the bites as they are sharp pulls and rattles (or slack line)

    Same here Jambon. It's my local.
    At the moment the main reason fishing is hard is because the river is now all over the nearby land! but yeah when it's in flood but still fishable you can either fish a float at 100 miles an hour or use a really heavy feeder and a large bow in the line. I tend to use as heavy a feeder as my rod allows and fish in the margins and slack waters - there's over 12ft just in front so there's plenty of fish still there.

    Well that's the river fucked for the foreseeable. Where I fished this time last week is now under 2 metres of water. And I have some new avon floats coming. Bugger.
    On the plus side I just bankrupt myself by getting a margin pole and modern seat box with a footplate and "things".

    Nice roach, Colin.

    Where did you site it, kjelm?

    I'm seriously thinking about a "Chinese diesel" heater. My T5.1 is a daily worker (and supermarket runner as we don't have a car) as well as a day/camper and takes an age to de-frost early mornings here in the rurals.
    Has anyone fucked around with them? I am thinking contrary to the popular installations and siting it in the passenger seat base (we don't have swivel and probably won't) and also using a separate fuel tank rather than dropping and tapping into the main tank, as there's unused space near the wheel arches which might work (and I could use red diesel).
