    Low incoming floating target

    Had a very similar target at a clay ground by me recently. The target was part of a sim pair representing something like decoyed pigeons coming in to land. Taken as a sim pair you had to attack the target shooting underneath and just in front of each bird. This I found easier than taking them as singles on report. The O/R target sucked you in and you could end up rifling the target and missing behind and probably over the top. I found the best technique was to shoot gun down as you had to wait for what seemed like an age before the target got to the kill zone.

    New Jimny Launch

    Will be interesting to see how many Shogun Sports Mitsibushi sell which to me looks like their version of the Foruner.

    Lure Fishing my Local Canal. Hard graft !

    Chew Valley Lake is probably the best pike water in Europe when you look how many big fish it produces. This winter has been poor though by Chews high standards with many sighting the very hot summer as the reason. As regards ticket prices, BW Fisheries can charge these amounts as demand has always outstripped supply.

    Clay Shooting Book Recomendations,

    As others have said : Breaking Clays by Chris Batha Positive Shooting as stated above. Not really what you are after but also worth a watch are the CPSA's video 'How to Hit series'. This is ''English Sporting'' orientated but the same rules apply. Rich

    Hi Stuart, Looking at AA Route Planner you are 5hrs drive / 300 miles away from me. Probably a bit too far to make the deal work. Regards Richard

    Pike fishing -Norfolk

    When I started pike fishing best part of 35yrs ago lure fishing in the UK was still in its infancy for mainstream anglers. Lures were relatively expensive, generally of a small size and only a limited range available in my local tackle shops. No proper 'lure' rods were in general supply but people did use 'spinning' rods. Everyone was into bait fishing round here and the only active way of fishing practiced was sink and draw deadbait fishing, particular successfully by the late John Sidley The advent of soft plastic lures along with the advent of the opening up of the Trout Reservoirs changed the game. Now loads of people get out chucking lumps of plastic about including me. I have not got into drop shotting yet but as I keep reading and as demonstrated by you in the right place its very effective. Tight lines, Rich

    Pike fishing -Norfolk

    Nice result. I would have loved to do 6 fish in 2hrs! I was out the other day down on a midlands river and did not get one follow on a lure after beating the stretch to a throth and had 2 aborted takes on a static deadbailt that was most likely to be small zander. Rich

    Bricks and Mortar Discount used shotgun

    I originally went to PG and wanted to shoot a demo G1 with 32'' barrels because I was moving from a Browning 525 G1 Adjustable with 30'' barrels. I went on spec and they had lent the Demo version to a game shot for several weeks so were unable to help me. They took my details but never got back to me. In the mean time I had the opportunity to shoot a few clays with a 32'' G5 MK38 that belonged to someone I just ended up taking to on their way around another clay ground. Once I knew the picture was the same and LOP similar / possibly better than the B525 I then just started looking for a new toy. I then decided to go mad and spend more £ on a ''looker'' and was prepared to travel up to Malmo who had the model I wanted at a better price than PG. Having looked on GT a gun at Mid Wales came up which was easier to get too and cheaper but was a 2017 model but still new. I had to go and have a look, and ended up buying it. Rich

    Bricks and Mortar Discount used shotgun

    Hi TK421, I have recently bought an MK38 G5 from Mid Wales SG's gunshop. That may be worth a trip for you depending on what you are after. The gun was brand new, was ticket up several hundred £ cheaper than Premier Guns for a like for like model. I bought the gun with no px, asked for a discount and was given a £100 off the ticket price. Came away very pleased and the purchasing experience was very good and no hard sell. Rich

    Quality Flighting

    I did a similar thing to Figgy's mate above. Using electrical tape I stuck on a combe raiser off fleabay and added some shims to lengthen the LOP. Fits much better now.

    Lure Fishing my Local Canal. Hard graft !

    Sad news to see enjoyable pike fishing ruined. Things are hard enough everywhere with otters and cormorants let alone set lines and the like. I presume you have reported this illegal fishing activity to the Environment Agency ? When I found a similar thing happening on the River Wye in Hereford they were down there very quickly. That was not Eastern Europeans but a couple of local numpties.

    Couple hours in the wood

    Great bag in short time in what looks like some nice sunny weather. Time well spent.
