    Worth it.

    Just cleaning up a bunch a traps, as I do around this time every year. Realised that I have this Fenn about ten years now, and it looks in very good nick with feck all rust to be seen. I give them a clean, and I spray paint them every year, or every other year, depending on how bad they are. I personally think it's worth it.

    I boil them in water and breadsoda mix for about a half hour. Then a quick scrub with a wire brush. Once dried i use Rustolium mat black on them. It holds up well, even on the river bank.

    So true. We can't look after what we have. Never mind introducing more problems.

    Jesus, poor b*****d might go extinct with this weather lol According to experts, the severe and prolonged hot weather in the UK is having a devastating impact on wildlife as access to water and food is drying up. This has impacted baby badgers, and with a badger cull due to be expanded in autumn, the species is under serious threat. Ecologist and zoo keeper Lee started a petition calling on Michael Gove to immediately stop the badger cull. He says they are vital for the ecosystem, they disperse seeds which help plants grow, and they build tunnels which end up being used by foxes, rabbits, otters and other animals. Lee is taking his petition directly to the Government on Thursday - he already has 156,000 signatures. Will you sign before Thursday that the public are behind Lee’s campaign? Petitioning Michael Gove Stop the nationwide cull of Badgers Petition by lee jenkins Chepstow, UK 159,010 Supporters Sign now with a click The government is planning to expand a badger culling program and offer farmers up to £50 bounty for each animal killed. The killing of these animals is wrong and it would have a disastrous impact on the ecosystem. That is why it must be stopped. I’m an ecologist, a zoo keeper and a teacher of agriculture and environmental science - I know how important badgers are to our environment. They disperse seeds which help plants grow, and they build tunnels which end up being used by foxes, rabbits, otters and other animals. Over 50,000 badgers were culled by farmers in the last 2 years (1), and if we keep on going this way it will have a serious impact on our environment. In the past, wolves, lynxes and wild boars were hunted to extinction and are now having to be reintroduced - why are we repeating the same mistakes again with the badger? The government says this is part of a program to stop the spread of bovine TB, but previous trials of culling badgers have not successfully stopped the disease. Vaccinations would be a far more ethical way of stopping TB, along with increased hygiene measures in farms. Badgers are an iconic symbol of the British countryside, and killing them will leave a huge hole in the ecosystem and do long term damage to our environment. The news is currently reporting that the cull will start in the Autumn. That only leaves us a few months to change the Government’s mind, so we need to act now!

    Ok, So what are we talking about here? Is it simply just mooching, and whatever the dogs get on, they hunt? Not knocking it, can't see how a certain breed can make much of a difference to that task.

    I honestly dont get it. Your dogs are chasing fox through cover, and then to ground. How are you not loosing dogs every other week?

    My old fell bitch was predominantly a digging dog, but she also made a very good bird dog, would work fox in cover (both with collar on), and also an excellent ratter. Kept her well clear of rabbits for obvious reasons. She was easy handle too, and had a bit of brains about her.

    Could be true. Maybe that's how this plague thing got here? They say it is being speed from one waterway to another by anglers equipment, waders, boats etc

    We don't have the red claws over here. The natives are fairly plentiful. Drag in a lot whilst fishing. Heard recently that this plague has hit one major river system which has wiped everything out. If it hits the Shannon, then that could be the end for the creyfish

    TEACHERS

    We had some great nick names for teachers in secondary school. Batman, Poppa Smurf, Spit's, Scruffy Brady, and Budgy Collins to name a few. I asked the kids recently what names they had on their teachers, and they looked at me as if I had two heads. Thought I was bloody crazy lol
