No Skippy didn't have one.

There is another cheap pin on the market, £60 called Konzi or something like that. Very free running, but has no adjustment so your stuck with it as it is. The problem IMO is it's to free running, but a nice reel

Hi all, I have checked with Reids tackle, it is about 2 miles from the tescos in Salisbury where we are meeting for breakfast, and they open at 8 am, so if anyone needs bait etc. there is that option, I will be shooting down there after a quick breckie as I have difficulty sourcing good maggots here at the moment as my only good tackle shop is having building work done.

Lets hope the rain eases a bit in the week, these downpours will have refilled the river there but it would be good to let the colour drop now.

If the weather turns nasty it will not be a fun day out, we could always postpone it for a couple of weeks.

Should we make a decision on Friday?

As nothing is booked formally we can be flexible on the date.

Mike, we're happy to go with the flow as we live near enough not to make the travelling a concern. Can't see snow on our forecast but it will be a tad on the cold side. Either way we'll wet a line somewhere.

I'm with Roger on this one. It's not too far from me and the roads are pretty good. Forecast is OK apart from the very cold temps but maybe the snow will be elsewhere. I'm happy to leave it to Friday and make up my mind then.

Somewhere I have a few images of 14 Dace for over 9lb from the top end of Britford... in the snow! Must try and dig them out, paper photos, not digital... it was a long time ago!

Well snow is forecast for here tomorrow, and again on Friday.

I am fine with the snow, fishing in it that is, but I have a bit further to travel than Skippy and would rather go in a couple of weeks time.

If Britford was only a few miles away i would go, so I will leave it for this weekend, if any of you should go, Good luck and have a good day.

That is fine with me. I am happy to re schedule to the 11 th december for those travelling, weather permitting.I know Fred and Peter had already said they were unavailable for this one, so maybe it gives them a chance to be back in.

If Neil, Rog and Jimmy still want to go for it this Saturday I will let you have Stuart's number (the Bailiff) and you can meet him in the car park and he will point you at the good swims.

With the temp forecast at around zero and an even lower wind chill, what are the chances of roach? Perhaps we'll head to the Stour and target a chub or two.

Not a roach expert. But you may do better on the stour. Maybe try again in a fortnight
