I came across these a few months ago and I absolutely love them. I do a lot of method feeder fishing nowadays and really like using match mini boilies around eight or 10 mm in size. These 4 inch hair rigs incorporate a special bayonet which you simply push into the Boilie. So there's no messing around with hairs and fiddly little stops.
Check these out, they are really good

The weather wasn't particularly good today, however that often favours carp fishing as it brings them onto the feed. Today wasn't an exception and the carp were quite interested in food.

I was looking into buying one of those Water Wolf underwater cameras that you can attach your rig to film the fish whilst they take your bait. I did a quick search on the Internet and came across what I assumed was probably a slightly cheaper version of the camera. After all, Go Pro produce various cameras that differ in price. The first one I bought only cost me £90, the most recent one was nearly £300.

What I didn't realise at the time was I was actually buying just the base that the camera fits on. However, I believe the advert was very misleading as the camera was included in the photo.

There's a brand-new fishing program starting this evening on ITV4 called Monster Carp. If you are a fan of Thinking Tackle, Fishing Gurus or The go to sleep) couple of those pork scratching things is that they like Big Fish off then this will surely be right up your swim.

Ali Hamdi will be the presenter and I believe he's going to have various guests accompanying him while he travels around the world fishing for large carp. All the other programs he fronts are absolutely brilliant and teach you lots of tricks on how to catch carp. I'm sure this new program will be just as entertaining.

Suffice to say my recorder is already set for 8 PM this evening on ITV4

Not that I'm ever going to be put in the scenario, I've got more fishing rods and reels and I would care to admit. However, if you are given the choice to use just one rod and reel for the rest of your life, what would it be?

The choice is quite simple for me, it would be my Avon quiver and my Shimano Aero GTM 4000.
