  1. Rod Repair

    Seemed to be a complete pain in the arse to try and get a tip ring ring which was both good quality and the right size. Veals kit was out of stock, and I didn't want to get a big kit and end up with a box of tip rings that didn't fit any of my limited selection of rods... So took it to Castaways and got it fixed. £4 job done [emoji476] Now if only this weather would do one... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Rod Repair

    Thanks all, will get the callipers out of the shed and measure the diameter of the rod, and then get a decent tip ring [emoji4] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Rod Repair

    Do we have any rod repairers in the club? Sam's Ugly Stik spinning rod has lost its tip ring insert, and I don't want to knacker it trying to get the old tip ring assembly off! [emoji56] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  7. Weighing Scales

    On the Bream Comp(s) on Sunday, I discovered that my Rapala, up to 50lb, digital scales have packed up. Put in a new battery- still no joy. Took them apart and there's a big sealed unit side, so there's nothing that I can test/fix. [emoji34] So what do you guys recommend these days? ⚖️[emoji476] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Bream Competition

    Had a nice relaxed day aboard Free Spirit with Graham (Bramble banker) and we started by motoring around to Dancing Ledge. Although the sea state was lovely as forecasted, that flippin' easterly wasn't, and before long we'd dug out the extra layers we had with us and I was shivering until I found my nice warm fleece hat, last seen December 2014... We had a slow time, but found the target species at least. My biggest was 1lb 2oz, and Graham's was of a similar size. Off to Ballard at slack, in time for the sun to come out, and the layers to come off. Didn't get a single bite there, but I did have a little kip in the sunshine! A blast in the Pirate 21 back to Cobbs, then over to the Liberal Club for the PSAC weigh-in. Well done to Andy for organising, and for the grub, and to the PBSBAC members who took home the lions share of the prizes. [emoji41] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  11. Bream Competition

    Hi Everyone Does anyone have a spare seat for Sunday? I am offering myself up on a similar basis to Tiddler in that I will help feed the fish, but as a bonus I create a little bit less ballast than Jim! [emoji56] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Starter rod for a 5 year old

    Yep, like Rob and Sam have said, Dom has been using a Rovex Kayak rod, with a (second hand) Abu 6000 multiplier since he was about 4 for 'heavier' boat work. He's used the same rod with a small (second hand) Shimano baitrunner for lighter species hunting on the boat and from the quayside. Plenty of bend in the rod but short enough so that he doesn't get the rod tangled up in everyone/everything else! The advantage of the baitrunner is leaving the drag off reduces the changes of the rod and reel going overboard when the junior anglers wander off and leave the rod leaning against the rail! I like the baitcaster reel that Sam C has- easy for a junior to use without creating birds nests every 2 minutes [emoji1] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Wessex Juniors FOM

    I raised it with the rest of the Wessex AT Committee while we were still at our club meeting, and it has been added to the Agenda for the Wessex AT AGM. This is basically a very old form which has just been updated with new contact information due to a change in people, and then re-circulated to Club Secretaries. Allan is correct, we have previously reported fish using only a fraction of the sections on this form, and those fish have been accepted as winners. I suggest we carry on the same until a more realistic and conservation-minded form is released. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Anyone got a bit of Woodland?

    Looking for a bit of woodland out of town where I can get permission to string up a tarp between a couple of trees and take the boys 'Wild Camping'. This is Back-to-basics, tarp, sleeping bag, fire to cook on. Bear Grylls/Ray Mears style. i.e. Not on a campsite! You're not allowed to do this on Council land, in Forestry Commission woods, or in the New Forest. This is basically because if it was allowed, some sections of society would take the p155. The only public land where it is allowed is Dartmoor, but I'm looking for something a bit closer to home if possible. If you've got, or know of, somewhere suitable, please let me know!
