  1. There are a few Mitchells reels out with various prices the Pro 300 reel has good specs and reviews and I am sure would make a good coarse reel it comes at a price, there are many good reels within that price range try and get into a good tackle shop and have a close look as fishing tackle is personal thing.
  2. Just exchanged mine for the new photo jobby because of a change of address, when moving I found my old red licence with a start date of Mar 1969 and no expiry or end date so I wonder how I would get on if I ever produced that to a constable. MM
  3. Thanks for that, I have not held a FAC since the 1900s at that time expanding ammo was prohibited under S5 Firearms Act with certain excuses Deer stalking protection of crops ect. It prevented overseas hunters zeroing rifles with expanding ammo for Africa and other countries, as I mentioned earlier its now a move in the right direction. I also could not understand the thinking behind shotgun shell purchases. MM
  4. Thanks very much for that at least thats a move in the right direction. MM
  5. I have been think about this thread since reading it, have the rules changed re expanding ammuntion? At one time you needed a seperate authority to acquire & hold expanding bullet heads for reloading even if you had authority to acquire & hold full rounds. A RFD would need to see your FAC to make sure you have that authority so he does not break the law. MM
  6. Thanks for that, I am happy it arrived safely and that you are pleased with it. Bait big Tim
  7. I am not a trout fisherman but when I do I fish dry fly on rivers and thats not very often, but I do use worms I use them alot for tench & bream, popped up for tench and hair rigged for bream. There is a lot of stuff worth watching on youtube but I try to keep things simple. Tim
  8. For sale is my Shimano Calcutta 251 baitcasting reel, its in lovely condition never used in salt water, its in pretty much in perfect condition, well looked after a perfect pike reel, spooled with unused 40lbs Power Pro braid. Made in Japan in the original box with unused bottle of oil, spanner and brake pads, instruction guide, schematics and warranty card and to keep it safe an ABU neoprene reel case. £80 posted. Further info just message me.
  9. Have a look at the Humane Slaughters Associations website most of the information you require will be there, also a lot of licensing authorities will use the HSA for advice when dealing with requests for weapons for humane dispatch.
  10. Never seen a plastic one before here is the brass version
  11. I have an empty Greener 12/14 bore Police Shotgun cartridge which is all brass but I think that would have started life as that cartridge becauce of the brooved base/head. Sorry for the typos that should read because of the grooved base/head Tim
