    No Jail for Moderate Crime Convictions

    Had one recently, broke into a building I manage and he then called the police himself and was arrested for burglary and theft. He had a keyboard and mouse from an ancient PC stuffed up his top.

    Mother Lines ????

    None. A 2 1/2 foot stake made from 2 x 1 with a hole drilled in the top with a loop of paracord to attach the mother line to. Push stake into the mud at low water, unreel and pull over x amount of mother line off to allow for tidal rise, clip decoys on as you make your way back to dry land, allowing space between them for the decoys to turn on the change of the tide and not tangle. The beauty of using stakes is that you can pull them out at any state of the tide and they bop to the surface, so no chance of the weight getting snacked, plus, there isn't the weight to lug out there in the first place.

    Artificial grass

    Yep, had artificial grass put down in 2017 for the same reason, muddy dog prints. Go for a short pile in the carpet, it makes picking up the mess so much easier. I've had the henry on mine on occasions.

    Best of the shelf decoys?

    Even better, the old HH? IMO, yes. Likewise.

    50 odd miles and an hour and 45 minutes each way with no traffic. Plus the added potential danger of riding a bike. Every bike rider I know has come off or been involved in an accident at some point, some got away with scratches and bruises, others, not so lucky. Enough to keep me away from them.

    VINTAGE FISHING TACKLE, any PW member use ??

    Try a 26lb mirror hooked in the tail on a 1 1/4 Avon and pin. Landed it though.

    Lure Fishing my Local Canal. Hard graft !

    Nowhere near the quality of Chew. Fished Farmoor on the first couple of days that they ran the pike trials as my mate worked for TW and ran the days, very, very poor.

    I wish my firm ran a season ticket loan scheme, it would save me over £700 a year against the monthlies I have to get.

    Lure Fishing my Local Canal. Hard graft !

    £80 an angler for a boat plus fuel and accommodation. Usually, two days to make the journey worthwhile. Yep.

    After my mortgage, rail fare is my biggest monthly expense. Gone up £15 a month to £495. That's £5,940 a year.
