Just What I've Always Wanted

Post by theshadow »

Got woken up at 4.30 this morning by my youngest to the cries of ''he's been,he's been'' so unwillingly get up and go downstairs to open our pressy's,now along with the usual suspects of socks and smelly's i received a Sundridge floatation suit and a Shakespear Salt Rucksack......happy days.

Nice one Lee,

I woke up at 5 this morning and got told to go back to sleep by Frozentoes.

Finally got up at 8am as the two lads at home are now 19 and out on the pop last night ha ha >:)

I had asked all the kids for a little money to hopefully gat close to getting myself a decent multiplier (Thinking Daiwa Slosh 20) they done me proud i could actually now afford two lol.

Oh happy days so thank you kids :x and glad my Grandson enjoyed his Thomas the Tank bike >:) and bits and pieces from Grandad Cabrat and Nanny Frozentoes. :D :D :D :D


What a lovely day had by all.......

Will see your new Prezzies at the Boat comp Lee lol.

Planning a trip now to get my New toy and lots of fishing goodies with my money hee hee, They told me i had to spend it on fishing hee hee I am certainly not complaining

Cabrat Claus Ho Ho Ho !!!!!

well done cabrat, but do you trust thise ready made rigs ?? ive had some in the past that just wasnt up to the job, and making your own, is much more enjoyable, apart from when a hook stabs you ouch.

and not only that if they fail, you only got yourself to blame.

hope they do the trick and are fish catchers for you.

Hi Steve,

I tend to get them off one supplier on ebay had them before and they were good.

Being a Northern Git if they weren't they would be straight back and my money returned with danming remarks on ebay lol lol lol
I do make them myself too but i also have Frozentoes my wife and her daughter and her daughters boyfriend who often come with me so i find a range of rigs means that i can clip them on for them and they are quite happy.

Now that i am back working (Thank heavens) I try to get chance to make them when i can but do like the fact that i have a selection as i have crack offs and all the usual fishing downsides of weight loss (Not Slimming world ha ha) losing rigs etc.

I tend to use a pennel rod and a flapper or pulley so on light fishing venues like the wharf in grays they are fine.

Cabrat.

Losing the odd rig is cheaper than whacking your telegraph poles against promenades Col lol lol lol.

See i have so much power from my short but perfectly formed frame and 12ft rods i have to worry about hitting Kent from grays Wharf when i cast lol lol

Lee is on the Pirate boat Pete

So don't let him know we have the trwaling nets and dynamite to get the little fishy wishy's on the comp lol >:) >:) >:) >:)
