“When am I going to get my reel back?” said Aitch

Post by Tengisgol » Tue Aug 20, 2019 6:56 am

Three times we tried to catch a fish on it; even Bob Brookes tried and he can catch fish in a puddle.

Last night, I finally managed to get some fish on the Hardy that Harry lent me. I’d never used one before but what a lovely clutch. I thought I had all the tackle I ever needed (or wanted) but, in truth, it never stops does it?

Surface fishing for carp is so exciting, made more so by the purr of an Altex. And no, it never stops; even after years of acquisition there's always one last thing that we 'need'.

I recall that I did hook a chub on it but shook it off.😂🎣

Well once again I have some MKIV footage to entertain me thanks Phil - as Beresford has said surface fishing for Carp is magical - I’ve never used an Altex but I found them to be a very tactile reel and aesthetically very pleasing - but when I do use a fixed its a 300. As for acquisitions it’s always an ongoing pursuit - an analogy being without the coal a steam engine just does not roll.
Thanks for the post.

Why can I feel my heart pounding when it's somebody else in the video. Lovely footage Phil and a lovely reel too.

Smashing bit of film with excellent sounds, my wife who was sitting in the corner asked what I was watching as I kept saying lovely stuff ! it makes you want to get out fishing immediately!
