  1. Not off the menu it's just if you got any rabbits left in the first place.
  2. I will do sean. If you want I do day trips 50 quid per person lol. Cheers arry I'm going again tonight I'll send you some pictures if I get anything.
  3. 2.78lb converts to 2lb 12oz, as I know we all like oz.
  4. Had another session on this new spot last night. - 4 temperature, fist proper cold night after weeks of rain. Finger like sausages couldn't even hook a worm by an hour in. Hour and half and had lost 2 small fish and then managed a small one. I noticed that they weren't biting as aggressive as last week when I first tried here so I slowed it right down, rather than bumping the tip I just lifted ently til I felt the lines slack go, then I'd drop it an inch so it slacks, wait a while, lift it taught gefntly then drop it again and then sack, all of a sudden rod tip buckled over and I had this cracker. It looks bigger than my 3lb 11oz but this was 2. 78lb on the scales which is around 2lb 10 oz or 2lb 11oz. This fish could do 4lb easy with a good feed as you can see it's all length and no belly. Here she is.
  5. Thanks arry still can't believe it. Will probably never beat that but I will have fun trying at a location I now know holds good big perch in numbers.
  6. Here is one I had last night. I've been trying to get a 2lb perch for about 3 years now. Waters are few and far between here in Wales. I was shared a place by someone I know who told me to keep the secret which I will, he showed me photos of plenty of 2lb fish he's had and one weighing bang on 3lb. I went there yesterday for the first time and landed this 3lb 11oz monster!!! I'm still buzzing from it, and I absolutely smashed my aim of a 2lb fish. Caught on worm using the drop shot method. Had another 5 perch all under 1lb. I fished from 9pm til 11pm so that answers any questions regarding of perch feed on the night lol.
  7. Yes the more you do the more it loosens up I draw mine right past my head with pebbles, its as easy as pulling tbg now but as you know the stuff snaps back a world apart from modern square which isn't great and has no snap
  8. Irish trapper, watched the videos a long time mate. Still yet to snare a fox but I only manage to get snares up when I'm on leave from work but love the videos alot can be learnt.
  9. The red linatex square does loosing up after a few hundred shots so the draw becomes alot easier. I put my foot on the pouch and stretch it when watching TV with a cuppa for 10 mins. Throws pebbles, big leads and at good speeds aswell. Does take a bit of getting used to if your used to flat but it is good stuff. As I say it does give a bit after few hundred and become nicer to shoot.
  10. That looks like a long old draw there Greyman. Do you aim with that or just point and shoot? Good shooting though both I not been out much the weather has been. On stop for weeks on end now pissing it down so its really stopped me getting out.
  11. Is that with the pouch twisted,and you just put the target in the centre of the forks as above?
  12. Cheers mate i will let you know how i get on. I know the main river that it runs into has chub in so there's no reason the brook into it wont , i've caught trout right the way up the brook miles from where it enters the river. Always on spinners, as i say never had a chub there but the guy who told me is reliable and as they're in the main river i'm sure some would of gone up the brook when in flood.
  13. I will give that a shot this weekend then. I was using cheese paste weekend just gone but the river has been right up and like hot chocolate the colour of it. Im not a big river fisherman so not sure how these effects the conditions etc but there are some nice places to fish around here and ive been told chub are a good target as they will bite even in the winter which is why im after them really.
  14. Thanks mate, so just fish the same pools i normally get the trout in isit? The guy who told me theyre in this same brook is fishing mad so i know he wouldnt of said so if they wernt, just fancy something a bit different and it is nice getting in these quiet areas. Is meat generally a decent bait for them?
  15. hazel stick with a recess chipping into it and dried for a few weeks is spot on for handlines.
