    Strap-on Gopro

    Hi Wedger, I have an SJCam 4000 which you are welcome to borrow. Fully waterproof, I've used it to take underwater shots. Has a load of accessories, charger, sd card etc. Not specifically strap on, but enough odds and sods to rig something or can be clipped on to a belt. It's basically a cheaper version of the wifi GoPro but with very similar functions. You can also download an app for editing offline. I'm also away fishing from Sunday. If interested, give me a call on 07523327475. I live in West Christchurch. Peter

    Sweet Pea with a new guest.

    Hi All, My name's Peter (PLD). I've been a member for a couple of years but don't have a boat. As a relative newcomer to sea angling I've been out quite a few times on Manta Ray and I think I have finally beaten the dreaded seasickness (tempting fate or what?). I still have a lot to learn and would love to be able to crew occasionally for club members. As a retiree I can often be available at short notice and on weekdays. Am happy to help out with costs and would also be happy to repay/earn favours by helping out with maintenance tasks. As a lifelong coarse and game angler I moved to Christchurch 3 years ago from Twickenham for a better lifestyle and to be nearer to family. Sea angling is new and I am really enjoying the learning curve. Hope to hear from you. Peter

    A Surprise visit today

    Out with Tomo on Manta Ray this afternoon conducting some trials following a modification to the hull. In the distance we could see a coastguard helicopter circling around. After steaming for a few minutes the helicopter 'buzzed' us. Thinking nothing of it we continue steaming only to get buzzed again. By now it was obvious something was going on. So I went out on deck and looked up, only to see a crewman holding up a board with 67 written on it. We now tune the radio to channel 67 and are immediately called up by the helicopter and asked if we would mind taking part in a training exercise. Well you don't refuse such a request and so are asked to steam west at a steady 10 knots. We were then privileged to be treated to the following spectacle. Very exciting stuff. Hope the links work Sent from my iPad

    Lure Storage

    Thanks folks, looks like I'm worrying unnecessarily.

    Lure Storage

    Have been building a small collection of soft plastic lures, Sidewinders, Tsunamis, Berkleys, etc. and was wounding what the best method of storage is. There are currently in original packaging, but this takes up a fair bit of space. Are they ok to store together loose in a plastic tub? Have read about possible problems with colours bleeding, plastics reacting together and meltdown? With the price of these lures it would be great to get some advice from other members. Thanks in advance. Peter

    A fNightmare

    Subject: A father's nightmare.. A father goes into his daughter's bedroom and sees a letter addressed to "Mum and Dad" on the bed. With a heavy heart he opens it and reads: Dear Mum & Dad, It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm telling you that I've eloped with my new boyfriend. I've found real love and he is so nice. Especially with all his piercings, scars, tattoos and his stolen Harley. But it's not only that, I'm pregnant, and Ahmed said that we will be very happy in his caravan in Epping Forest. He wants to have many more children with me and that's one of my dreams too. I've learned that marijuana does not hurt anyone and we'll be growing it for us and Ahmed's friends. They're the ones providing us with all the cocaine and ecstasy we could ever want. In the meantime we'll pray for science to find a cure for AIDS, so Ahmed can get better. He deserves it. Don't worry about money, Ahmed has arranged for me to be in films that his friends Leroy and Jamal make in their basement. Apparently, I can earn £200 per scene. I get a £200 bonus if there are more than three men in the scene, and an extra £100 for the Alsatian. Don't worry Mum. Now I'm 14 I know how to take care of myself. Someday we'll visit you and Dad so that you can meet your grandchildren. Dad, we found the cash you were hiding from mum, but don't worry we left you a few quid. Your loving daughter, Angelina. .. . . P.S. Dad, for God's sake calm down. It's not true I'm actually watching TV at the neighbours. I just wanted to show you that there really are worse things in life than England loosing the bloody Ashes.

    Stop knots on braid

    Hi Johnny, Trick from pike (coarse) fishing is to use rubber float "stops". Perfect for slider floats and they slide up the braid easily, but DO lubricate with spit whilst sliding up the line. Rubber stop slips easily through the rings. Works equally well on braid or mono. Good luck Peter

    Who is that stunningly good looking chap in the hat? First ever bream (x3) and not at all seasick. Great day out, great company and great fun. Thanks Al and the rest of the gang. Peter

    The Ballerina

    A large woman, wearing a sleeveless sundress, walked into a bar in Dublin, Ireland. She raised her right arm, revealing a huge, hairy armpit as she pointed to all the people sitting at the bar and asked, "What man here will buy a woman a drink?" The bar went silent as the patrons tried to ignore her. But down at the end of the bar, an owl-eyed drunk slammed his hand down on the counter and bellowed, "Give the ballerina a drink!" The bartender poured the drink, and the woman chugged it down. She turned to the patrons and again pointed around at all of them, revealing the same hairy armpit, and asked, "What man here will buy a lady another drink?" Once again, the same little drunk slapped his money down on the bar and said, "Give the ballerina another drink!" The bartender approached the little drunk and said, "Tell me, Paddy, it's your business if you want to buy the lady a drink, but why do you keep calling her the ballerina?" The drunk replied, "Any woman who can lift her leg that high has got to be a ballerina!"

    Sea Sick - Help

    Thanks guys, some really useful tips here. Think I'll try the stugeron next and then the phenergan and sudafed if they don't work. Seem to remember giving Phenergan to our daughter to help her sleep. Funny you should mention pork pies Charlie, Paul D did warn me about these, think he called them 'barf bombs' Much appreciated
